    GMac press conference notes

    Here is the link to GMac's press conference today. Good info for those of us who didn't catch it on TV.

    CycloneReport.com - Big 12 Media Days: McDermott Q & A

    "A year ago we returned four scholarship players and we returned five this year, so I think we're making progress."
    What a sad sad quote.
    But it is very nice to hear him talk about the competition at each position.
    DIdn't realize that Gmac is the 5th most senior BB coach in the Big XII

    Re: GMac press conference notes

    He is a real good guy. Proud to have him for a coach. What surprises me is that many of the kids did not want to play his type of ball. He has a more organized style than what they wanted ejovj was run and gun.

    I haven't seen the video, so I don't know for sure, but I assumed this was meant to be humorous. It made me laugh, anyway, with my dry sense of humor.

    It was meant to be funny. He tried a couple of zingers at the beginning but we all know how cool and funny sports reporters are. If they were only as cool and funnyinstead of as fat and smelly that they are, they'd be a lil more fun.

    In Wesleys lil interview at the Big XII, John Walters asked him about how he got 9 stiches?!?! John kidded and asked if he ran into Bobby Knight. I wonder what happened.

    Otherwise nothing too special. The national media is in love with ISU, so i bet we get a lil bit more form the local media tom. I think its tom.

    I am really, really happy we have Coach McDermott. He seems to possess the best qualities of some of our recent coaches, without the downsides. I hope he can go another 20 years.

    Re: GMac press conference notes

    I thought it was interesting how he said a couple of different times that the team chemistry is so much better now than it ever was last year. Have to wonder if Taylor had an effect on the chemistry last year...

    I think it will really make a difference this year.

    Oh man, I wouldn't want to get elbowed in the head by Vette. Maybe they should wear boxing head gear.
