    Coach McDermott email to students

    Thought it would be nice to share --

    December 10, 2007
    Dear Iowa State Student and Cyclone Fan,

    I want to say “THANK YOU!” for your awesome support of the Cyclones on Saturday vs. Iowa. I cannot tell you just how important your presence at our basketball games is to our team and to me. The student body, Cyclone Alley and the Cyclone fans have been just incredible!

    I want to pass along well wishes as you complete your final exams and finish this semester. I hope you all have a Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday and safe travels to and from home.

    As you know, we have been struggling through a series of misfortunes that have impacted our team in a number of ways. The injury bug has bitten us pretty hard (Jiri - broken ankle, Rahshon - tendonitis in his knee, Wesley - serious joint capsule injury in his ankle) and the ongoing eligibility issue with Lucca have hurt us not only in games, but also in our preparation. We have had almost 50 practices to date. We have yet to have had an entire practice with everyone healthy to participate. Although we play shorthanded at times, our goal is that we will not lack effort, hustle and enthusiasm. I want our team to demonstrate the same “PASSION” that you, our student body, demonstrates every game.

    As I have said in the past and still feel this way; I love being the men’s head basketball coach at Iowa State University. Being a Cyclone is as exciting as I had hoped and dreamed it would be. I am proud to be representing ISU, our alums, fans and especially you, the students. The friendships, camaraderie and the entire experience of college life is such a special time. I want Cyclone Basketball to be one of your special memories as you pass through Iowa State.

    I want to thank you again for your past support and invite you to continue to support the Cyclones as we finish our non-conference schedule and head into the Big 12 part of our season.

    I hope to see you at Hilton!

    Go Cyclones!



    Greg McDermott
    Head Men’s Basketball Coach
    Iowa State University

    Bravo to Coach Mac. I truly believe that if we had our team at 100 percent (injury-free and with Lucca), we'd be miles ahead of where we are now. And I'm confident that at this time next year, barring any more major injuries, we'll all be much more excited about where this program is headed.

    I was just about to post that, McDermott is such a great guy, and an incredible coach, despite what way too many armchair point guards tend to believe recently

    He's a high class coach, I don't think we could've done any better by bringing anyone else to ISU, I have complete faith he's going to leave a legacy just as or perhaps even stronger than Johnny Orr's.

    Class act, I hope he is here for the current students to be long term NCC members and season ticket holders because of stuff like this.

    Is this for real? I think I like it, but it seems odd to point out the obvious about injury's and Lucca?

    Yes, it's real... Why would someone forge a letter from Mac to students just to try and trick the good folks on CF?

    Anyway, the majority of students are unaware of all the troubles the team is having, so it's good that he informed them. Not everyone is as hopelessly addicted to sports message boards as we are!


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    with chizik,mcdermott,fennelly,and sanderson I don't think there is a classier group of coaches at any other school in the country.
