    The formula for mac the mediocre's "success" was simple...the north all got bad at the same time, and he could schedule 3 ****** non cons, and of course do his Knute Rockne Impression against the hawks.

    When the north was good, we were ****. When the north was bad we could compete. When we played the good south teams, we were ****. When we played the bad south teams we could compete.
    The could have been 10 wins part is the only thing I was off on, otherwise I stand completely by my statement.

    If you are going to base your entire argument on fiction, I suppose you have to stick with it less you have to admit you are making stuff up

    what did I make up, everything you posted was opinion. Did Mac not have a 9 win season and were we not ranked in the top ten one year? Did we not beat the teams I mentioned or nearly (he was in on that last play) beat #3 FSU? I'm confused where the fiction is there? For the record I was fine with firing Mac (would have been fine had they kept him too), doesn't mean I can't appreciate some of his accomplishments though too. Can't understand your disdain for him.

    Sure, we can all appreciate what ol danny mac did. But don't make it seem like we were some juggernaut when he was here. He was here 12 years, and finished last SIX times.

    It is interesting, and telling, that all of the teams we played were all for Iowa State keeping mac employed, but we have a Kansas state newspaper calling for CPR to be fired.

    Re: Wish Dan was still here........

    All the KSU student paper really said was that a coach with that record deserves to be fired. They aren't exactly trembling in fear of a guy that they've owned for 5 seasons.

    lol. KSU student newspaper. That's rich.

    What does the West Virginia student TV station have to say? I know all the things me and CW said on ISUtv were given to all the other league AD's in their daily rundowns.

    As bad as this O is I think 2003s was worse. I think they averaged 8 or 9 ppg in conference. But yeah, this offense is horrid.

    Absolutely! You nailed it. I don't expect the future to be any better because it's us against all the Texas and Oklahoma schools.

    Time to go hire a good coach, not your friend.
    Has he hired a friend? Do you have any proof? No, of course not.

    Actually, Texas was down at the start of Mac's tenure. And Nebraska was down at the end. The North was the dominant side of the B12 during the early years. Nebraska, KState, and Colorado were very good. Texas and Texas A&M were nothing too great.

    And then came the Callahan years at Nebraska. Say goodbye to playing for national championships.

    I'm a big Dan fan too but this is irrational. Paul and Dan are proving to be very similar.
    Well now....CPR has yet to win 9 games in a season/ eight plus a bowl win, and as I remember Danny Mac was the last coach at ISU to do that since Earle Bruce in 76-77-78......
