    Take a deep breath, relax.

    Coach Mac...you're good in my book:

    1. Coached a two-time Heisman Trophy candidate (Davis).
    2. Victories over Nebraska.
    3. 5 bowl games in 6 years.
    4. 2 bowl game victories.
    5. Pounded a No. 8 Iowa team last year, 23-3.
    6. Drilled Texas A&M in College Station, 42-14, last year.
    7. Played Florida State to the wire in 2002.
    8. Has currently 8 (?) players in the NFL.
    9. Coached 2 All-Americans (Davis, Bruns).
    10. 2001 Big 12 Conference Coach of the Year (collegefootballnews.com).
    11. 2004 Big 12 Conference Coach of the Year (Big 12 Coaches).
    12. Has coached 13 First-Team All Conference players.
    13. Has brought in record-attendance levels at Jack Trice Stadium.
    14. Football department upgrades...practice facilities, salary increases for assistants, etc.
    15. Brought ISU to a #9 ranking in 2002...#9.
    16. Has taken a cellar dweller with no $$$$$ to a respectable program with countless supportive boosters.
    17. Has managed to get 80% of Cyclone Nation ****** at a 7-5 record...this speaks volumes.

    Some people don't realize what they have until it is gone. Post a positive memory of ISU Football. And, hey, we've got 6 f*cking games left...GO CYCLONES!

    The team and staff need your support right now, believe it or not.

    Save the negative thoughts, ********, and moaning for the other threads...

    Well-researched and worded. Even if you disagree with your sentiment, can't take away from your points.

    I think this is a great reminder of all the things Mac has done for us...it's been 12 years, so the list should be this long. I just hope in the next 12 years, there are more items to add, more things to celebrate--whether that is with Mac or not.

    Hopefully a 10-3 final record this season will be added at the end of the season.

    Even with all the past positive things he has brought you have to remember we have a new AD. I dont know if he cares as much as cyclone fans about that stuff. He listens to what the fans are saying though and most of it is not good.

    Re: Take a deep breath, relax.

    Good points. A nice list too.

    Someone could also post a list of embarrassing things under D-Mac's reign as head coach.

    Those things...+ and - ...are to be expected from a program like ISU that is scratching and clawing - trying to get near the top of a conference they've been used as a doormat for far too long.

    Re: Take a deep breath, relax.

    It was a good post, but the Chicago Cubs still reminded us of what is important. WINNING. You may have a resume to impress the majority, but you need the record to impress your boss. Right now we are 3-3 just as predicted, but we could be 0-6. I appreciate what Mac has done, but more is needed as expected from the fans, and Pollard. Some say those expectations set by Pollard are crazy and way over exaggerated, well I think not.

    Re: Take a deep breath, relax.

    Very good opening post, however, those things in the past don't get the stadium renovated, and get more money tossed to the program, which is what our new enthusiastic AD wants. But a big win on the road this weekend would put steam in everybody's step.


    Go Cyclones!!

    Don't go making assumptions that Pollard is getting heat on ousting Mac based on what people hiding behind a keyboard are posting on these message boards. I think the majority of fans are not happy with the season, but are not Mac-bashing and possessing the mentality of a lynchmob in the process.
