    Re: Should ISU have done more to keep Greg and Doug McDermott in Ames?

    McDermott was just flat out bad here, 2-4 wins in the Big 12 a season wasn't cutting it. No signs of improvement in his fourth year either, things worked out great for both ISU and McDermott in the end with him going to Creighton and Fred coming in here.

    This is seriously the worst thread in the history of cyclone fanatic.

    Re: Should ISU have done more to keep Greg and Doug McDermott in Ames?

    Is this thread happening?

    There are a lot of questions that I could ask which have the same NO answer:
    1. When I sit down, should I take a moment and punch myself in the groin?
    2. Hot water seems to be coming slower today. Should I put my hand in there to check the pilot light?
    3. Could I cut my toenails shorter by cutting off my entire toe?
    4. Would my food taste better with a little arsenic mixed into my salt?
    5. Should I throw rocks at students in class?
    6. Should I jump out in front of the bus to check their brakes?
    7. Could I put a railroad spike through my head and walk out alive like Phineas Gage?

    Was this a serious question? It was seriously ignorant, so I'm wondering.

    This thread is bad and you should be embarrassed for starting it.

    I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,
    “You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. During the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
    “Because,” says the Lord, “Sandpeople always ride single-file, to hide their numbers.”

    I disagree with #5. I think you should, but only at the one's that are sleeping or on their phone all class.

    Second.

    McDermott was just a terrible hire. Whoever made this thread obviously didn't watch any games during that era. There's a reason players bailed for other places like they were going down on the Titanic.

    Hilton Coliseum was specifically built to hold in sound with a solid concrete structure, steel doors, and a crowd that sits just a few feet from the court. With a fan base that frequently ranks among the nations largest crowds, players from opposing teams, as well as Iowa State, have said that the floor has shaken due to the loudness of the crowd
