    name 10 replacements for Mac

    go on and name 10 replacements for Mac or any of the other coaches defense or offense.

    curious if anybody can do that.
    I see alot of people quick to say fire Mac and Cotton but no one naming a list of people better for the job and available

    keep in mind they have to take us to the next level.

    how many of you are going to buy season tickets and use them for every game which will most likely be loss ie what Colorado and Kansas State are going through. losing to 1-AA teams and Baylor at home.

    oh yeah how are the lousy seasons going to bring in sponsors for stadium renovations that needs to be explained as well

    Re: name 10 replacements for Mac

    Just to kick off the discussion:
    Mark Farley of UNI (little engine that could)
    Steve Loney of Texas (great recruiter)
    Chris Peterson of Boise State (six years of perfection)
    Mick Denehy of Montana (why not beat Colorado)
    Terry Bowden sportscaster(smart dude)
    Turner Gill of Buffalo (love to beat the Huskers like Barney)
    Houston Nutt of Arkansas (he was a one game wonder)
    Craig ver Steeg of Rutgers (team is doing well)
    Jeff Casteel of West Virginia (wonderful possibility)
    Bill Young of Kansas (steal from the local neighborhood?)
    Paul Petrino of Louisville (brother is head coach)

    Houston Chronicle sportswriter Mickey Herskowitz passes along this story about those two NFL coaching icons, George Halas and Vince Lombardi:
    One recalls the story of George Allen, who was hired off the staff of George Halas in Chicago to coach the Los Angeles Rams. Halas was furious that the Rams failed to ask for his permission and threatened to take Allen to court. At a league meeting after the issue was resolved, Halas used the occasion to vent his anger at his former defensive coach.
    "George Allen," Halas said, "is a man with no conscience. He is dishonest, deceptive, ruthless, consumed with his own ambition."
    At that point, Vince Lombardi leaned over to the owner of the Rams and whispered, "Sounds to me like you've got yourself a helluva football coach."

    Re: name 10 replacements for Mac

    Pretty solid list but I highly doubt that Chris Petersen and Houston Nutt are going to take a demotion and come to Iowa State. Petersen saw what happenned to Hawkins when he bolted for Colorado and Arkansas is a much better football program than Iowa State, plus they play in the best conference in college football.

    Re: name 10 replacements for Mac

    Let's hire Frank Solich of Ohio...fired from Nebraska for "only" winning 9 games. Would he coach again in the Big 12? What would you do if you had a shot at biting the hand that fired you?

    Why not? Then he could have another coach of character too like LE... (for those who missed it, he got a DUI at Ohio, passed out in his car going the wrong way on a one way street)

    Re: name 10 replacements for Mac

    Do you guys not remember what happened last time we hired a coach Nebraska fired? His name was Barney "Bleepin" Cotton. Look how that has turned out as half of you, including myself, are calling for his head. Solich would be a terrible hire. He would not fit in for what Iowa State fans are looking for. Yes he did get fired after going 9-3. But lets be honest, it was 9-3 with far superior players than ISU has. And he showed he can't recruit with the big boys. I really dont see to many guys out there willing to come to isu that would be any better than MAC. Texas D coordinator would be a nice hire

    Re: name 10 replacements for Mac

    Let's all be realistic here. You may not have heard of them but these guys are nails:

    1. Frank Beamer
    2. Urban Meyer
    3. Kirk Ferentz (Even though he is gay)
    4. Pete Carrol
    5. Steve Spurrier
    6. Tommy Tuberville
    7. Charlie Weis
    8. Bobby Stoops
    9. Rush Propst
    10. Frank Beamer's Goiter


    And I would trade them all for UT's budget.

    Gimmee a break. Hiring is a crap shoot unless you can outbid. remeber when we all that Ferentz was a mistake?

    Re: name 10 replacements for Mac

    not saying we cant do better than mac but I want to know who they are.
    look at Kansas State and Colorado they are having lousy seasons after hiring new coach it always seems to happen team gets new coach and sucks for 2 years. some do good then go down hill.

    wonder what Uconns coach could do with ISU's facilities never forget that damned ISU vs Uconn game.

    Re: name 10 replacements for Mac

    I'd take Gene Chizek (spelling) the defensive coordinator for Texas and previously Auburn

    Solich orginally plead no contest to the DUI only to contest it 6 months later on the claim that someone slipped him some roofies, the judge didn't buy that claim.

    Turner Gill has too much class to want to beat the Huskers like Barney does. I was listening to Jon Miller the other day and someone called in with ties to LSU and said, FWIW, Bo Pelini is obsessed with returning to the Big 12 and beating Nebraska.

    Re: name 10 replacements for Mac

    Might want to take a look at that "bad" season K-State is having. Is it bad because they struggled to beat a 1-AA team? So did we, and if you look at their record they are 4-2 (1-1), we are 3-3 (0-2). Hmm, they are having a bad season! And I'm pretty sure Colorado's troubles started way before Dan Hawkins was hired, they talked about firing Barnett for 3 years and dug a hole for themselves, I don't want us to dig back into the hole Coach Mac got us out of.
