    For the love of Pete !! What a crazy post... Doc responded correctly. Maybe Fred could have done something with Doug but we are better off with Greg in Omaha.

    Heck, if you are going to ask this question then you need to ask if we should have done more to keep Gene....

    His son is a great player and is the only reason his dad looks good as a coach right now.

    Grant Gibb is the glue that makes things work at CU. Grant sets up Doug most of the time.
    It will be interesting how CU is doing in three years. Right now, they have it going on.

    No. All that is happening at Creighton is that GMac is proving he is a competent MVC coach, and his son is an excellent MVC player. Nothing more. GMac showed that same thing at UNI. Of course he had a pretty good assistant at UNI.....what was his name again? Ben something?

    Let's see how Creighton does in the tourney when it faces a Big 10 or ACC team, or any team from a major conference that has a pulse. Also, let's see how GMac does once his son is in the NBA.

    He didn't get it done at ISU. Period.


    -Be kind. That is something you will never regret. You will never say to yourself when you are old "I wish I was not good to that person".

    I agree with everything about GMac that you wrote, however, this year's Creighton team has already faced an always solid Wisc team and the Arizona State team on neutral courts and handled both of them by double digits. Creighton is a legitimate threat to make the second weekend come March.

    After watching him play the past 2.5 years, I think the Doug could have handled himself in a power conference. I think he would have developed into a Homan-style player with more intangibles. Gmac didn't want to take the risk with Doug and thus putting him in the fan's ire because of his father (Dan and Cody Hawkins for example). I respect Greg for that.

    I am enjoying Dougie and Gmac at Creighton, but I would never think about what if's in regard to them at ISU.
