    Would Jon Cooper come out of retirement to coach at ISU.

    Yes, I know he couldn't beat Michigan. So what! He won at Tulsa, ASU, and at over an 80% clip at OSU. He is an alum of the Dirty Thirty. Give him the reins for 5-7 years and let him hand off a much stronger program to the next coach.

    I agree with Cooper or Steve Loney over Mac. At least they know how to be productive. Yeah I would like someone young or energetic too, but either of these would be an upgrade over Mac.

    If we get someone even better....great!

    Not sure. I would put him in the 65-67 range though considering that the Dirty Thirty was 1959-1960.
