    McDermott

    NCAA pregame shown on TruTV just did a short piece on Creighton. Showed the coaching staff joking around and eating, and one of the assistants asked if Nebraska fans will cheer or boo Creighton, McDermott said Creighton fans will cheer for Nebraska with a smile. Then one asked if Iowa State fans will boo or cheer Creighton, McDermott responded, they will cheer for Doug and boo me, I don't know maybe they are still cheering I left. He said it in good humor, everyone had a good laugh.

    Happy for for Doug and Greg. Glad they found success. Can't cheer for Creighton though, but that doesn't have anything to do with GMac.

    He got out of the way quickly and politely to let Hoiberg make his ascendance. He deserves our respect if not our admiration.

    Re: McDermott

    No problem here, he couldn't find success here and promptly left. Not like he wasn't trying to succeed here. My only downside is no Doug McD at ISU.

    I don't if I'll go that far. I am happy with the way things worked out, and glad that GMac had respect enough for ISU to leave a situation that was just a bad fit. I mean, the way GMac exited, without ISU having to buy him out, and actually having Creighton pay us? That doesn't happen too many times with Power conference coaches with the record GMac had. I mean, look at Iowa. They just stopped paying Lick, THIS YEAR. We didn't have that problem. I'll thank GMac for the way he handled his exit, and respect him for it.

    Nice way to handle it.
    I really like watching Creighton play, so I'll cheer for them.

    Re: McDermott

    One of the rare situations where the outcome benefits both schools involved. GMac's move helped Creighton and Iowa State.


    You feel the floor give you a little tingle, man, Iowa State junior point guard Monte Morris said in a private moment after the game, leaning against a wall in the bowels of Hilton Coliseum. You feel it. You feel it. Its real. You feel it on the court. Its a tough feeling to explain. Its a vibration. It gets you going.

    He paused.

    Its magic.

    Re: McDermott

    I'll happily cheer for Doug as he's an Ames High guy and seems like a good kid on top of it, I'm indifferent as far as Creighton goes though, I'll cheer for them for as long as I have them picked in my bracket.

    He's got me pegged.

    McD is a good dude and a good mid major coach.

    Re: McDermott

    I don't hate on GMac. He just did not fit at ISU. He struggled to get good player to come and stay at ISU, and unless your are getting a new patch of McD all-americans every year it is hard to win without stability. His teams have been very stable at Creighton, and that is why he has been successful.. The fact that his son is a stud helps.

    He did us one additional favor by taking Doug to Crieghton instead of leaving him at UNI, who the Clones have to play regularly.

    Lol. Greg seems like a good guy. Maybe not a great coach, but a good guy. Like everyone said, except for a few years that I'm sure were miserable for all involved, the whole thing worked out as well as possible.

    Creighton fans are obnoxious. Can't cheer for their team. Has nothing to do with me being a Cyclone fan, just me living in Omaha.

    Tell me about it. My daughter is a grad and has been rubbing their success in my face all year. She quieted down after we won the tournament.

    After growing up watching basketball in an ISU home, she almost cried when I told her Greg was leaving ISU for Creighton four years ago.
