    Wed GMac Presser

    I may not be in the majority, but I want some answers during this press conference. The carnage and exodus over the past few years is too great to just give cursory answers about this one instance and move on. The wheels are coming off and if there is to be any of JP's often mentioned "hope" for the program's future the fans have a right to know what's wrong and how it's going to be fixed otherwise it will be difficult to sustain any kind of support from the much needed fringe group of fans.

    Re: Wed GMac Presser

    I have a feeling we will get nothing from this. As it was said before Mac will probably take the high road, nothing wrong with that, but it doesn't provide answers.

    Unless he has documents to prove what WJ has said then we will be in a back and forth, who do you believe situation.

    I hope some of the local media will ask the tough questions though, it should be interesting.

    Unfortunately, I suspect you will get some major "spinning". McDermott will be in full self preservation mode and will likely run the bus over Wesley's body a few more times for good measure. More importantly, in such a small media market like central Iowa I highly doubt that any of the media will really have the balls to put McDermott on the spot (likely for fear of ostracism from ISU's program).



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    Great point, since Greg Doyle won't be there to stir things up it will probably be spinning in ISU's favor all day.

    Re: Wed GMac Presser

    Yikes, seems like a hard crowd. People do not want him to take the high road and won't be happy if he does. People will also hate him for running the bus over WJ if he deserves it. Tough crowd - I wouldn't want to coach here.

    Hopefully he can come out and maybe have a good comment on the situation. Too bad he can't comment on recruiting though.

    I agree with this. We all want answers, but I highly doubt we'll get many - if any - tomorrow.

    Couldn't disagree more with this.

    Re: Wed GMac Presser

    If he takes the high road, that is fine by me. It's what a coach should do. That's why he is getting paid to be here, take some heat and move on. Spin it though, that this isn't a big deal, we are a team and this is a team game. Wish Wes well, dont' talk about how it went down or the negative stuff we have all been talking about the last 24+ hours.

    I'm not sure why we need a press conference, did Licklitter have a press conference when TF left? If he did I missed it but I miss a lot of Hawk pressers since I don't really care.

    Re: Wed GMac Presser

    There's no way he's going to throw Wesley under the bus and possibly alienate his teammates. He's really asking for CB and friends to leave if he does that. I can accept vagueness about Wesley, but really can't about the defection problem as a whole. It would be nice for him to admit some mistakes and lay out some actions so it doesn't happen again. I don't want to keep wondering why this is going on.

    I don't think many hawk fans would like to hear how TF was given the cold shoulder. I don't know if that is true but that is what I heard and that would not make a good press conference.

    He did, but essentially said nothing.

    I would expect this tomorrow.

    But maybe Polllard has asked him to address the defection issue and that is what the whole thing is about.

    Ya think?

    I mean, we're hemorrhaging players faster than an 80-year old man that's run out of Preparation H - somebody needs to do/say something.

    That is a visual I was not prepared for.
