    It also seems the state is starting to support Red Husker basketball a little instead of exclusively supporting Blue Huskers.

    Not at all what this said. It said that he didn't want his son scrambling if he lost his job.

    McD was about as firmly entrenched as Chizik. As soon as Doug committed to UNI, you knew McD was done with ISU, and probably had been for a good while.

    I realize Shatel's job is to sell papers, but to say McDoormatt is the coach of the year is amazing. I wonder what Tom will write about when the Bluejays go .500 next year.

    I guess he move on to the Husker BB coach being COY.

    I'm surprised it took someone this long to post this. Agree 100%. Coach of the year? Okay I'm wearing rose tinted glasses, but I have to think Fred is in the running for that award. We lose 3 starters from last year and he has us in the top 20 all season. I think it's simply amazing what Fred has done. I like Greg and will defend him on this board as long as the day is long, but he has a senior team playing in a weak conference(he does have some good RPI wins). If Greg can do next year what Fred this year, well then maybe he should be in the running.

    I didn't read anything like that. He said there was a chance he could lose his job in a year or two, that didn't mean he had given up.

    While still coach of the cyclones, McDermott not only advised a good recruit not to come to ISU, he advised him to go to an in-state rival. Look, I understand McDermott didn't think he could get the job done at ISU and thought he was going to lose his job, but instead of purposely not doing the job to the best of his ability he should have done the classy thing and resigned. That he continued to take a paycheck while advising a recruit to act against ISU's best interests says a lot about him. McDermott correctly believed that his son could help him succeed at Creighton, but he apparently wasn't interested in attempting to succeed anymore at ISU.

    Re: Doug McD

    Barring a Virginia collapse, national COY is Virginia's Tony Bennett's to lose and I think he is the favorite by a pretty decent margin. People will say Gregg Marshall but please, WSU was a Final Four team last year and is feasting on a weak Missouri Valley. McDermott has been aided by the Big East not being as good as expected and the fact that Doug came back for his senior year

    I don't see any coaches from the major conferences outside of Bennett at UVA that are doing anything that would make you think national COY

    Re: Doug McD

    Did any of us really want a scholarship used for Dougie back when he was being recruited? I don't remember him having folks lobbying for him. The general consensus was that he would be a good role player at UNI.

    I certainly don't remember a lot of people wanting him. According to rivals, we would have been his only major offer.

    I do not care if a recruit is the McD AA game MVP, if you are the coaches son, you need to be a walk-on. There were a lot of people that wanted him.

    Come on. Let's be fair and not just address the situation with the benefit of hindsight. If McDermott had given a scholarship to Doug, we would have accused him of sacrificing our team in order to do a favor to his son.

    Also do we expect him to just not parent. It was a tough situation. I am fine that he valued his parenting opinion above his coaching opinion. I don't think he gave up he was just realistic with his son. Now if this happened with someone else then it would be bad but it was his son.

    McDermott did not work at Iowa State that is clear. That doesn't mean he is a bad coach. Yes they will struggle a ton next year but I would be confident that they will be back.
