    The end of an era

    I've been arguing all season that McCarney deserves to stay on at Iowa State. I truly believe that he has done great things for the program, and brought them to a new level in college football. However, I think today's game was a real statement by the team. If you are trying to save your coaches job, you don't come out and get stomped by a bad Kansas team. I am sure injuries contributed, I am sure that poor assistants contributed, but I don't think there will be any way to save his job. I appreciate everything Dan has done for the program. I think he has been a really great representative for Iowa State, and has ran a class program. I wish him nothing but the best for the future.

    my thoughts exactly


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    Re: The end of an era

    3 straight completely pathetic games (Tech, K-State, Kansas), where we should have won all three - aught to send him and his staff packing.

    I hate it, I wish D-Mac would be the one to continue growing this program - but he's hit a brick wall.
