    McCarney interview in Gazette tomorrow

    Heard on WMT tonight that McCarney did an interview with the Gazette that is going to be in tomorrows paper.

    Should be interesting to hear how things are going for him in Gatorville and what his plans are for the future.

    honestly can't believe they haven't made him head coach by now.

    I think it'll be a good interview.

    I don't know why some people have such a hatred for the man, but so be it I guess.

    who hates him? I like the guy. I just love to dig at the people who made him more than a mortal. They usually blow up and it is soooo entertaining.

    I miss him - so does Bill Fennelly, I'm sure. The Florida d-line players love him.
    We'll also see how football camp enrollment fares this summer; last year's total was way down from the McCarney standard.

    Not you necessarily - but there are quite a few posters who at the very mention of McCarney, want to go on a murderous rampage.

    I understand the move that was made, but consider me in the Dan McCarney fan club.

    Let's not try to imply that higher camp numbers translate into signing better recruits. It's much more about quality than quantity in these situations. One of the biggest challenges of coaches at these camps is to make sure that the guys who they are interested in get the majority of their time and attention. They have to spend some of their limited time sorting through the guys who have no legitimate reason to be at a D1 camp.

    I realize that the less talented kids pick up some coaching tips that will help them contribute at the high school level. The bottom line is that the less talented kids would help all parties involved by camping at a smaller school. There are some very good coaches at many of the smaller schools who are probably better suited to working with less talented kids.

    Re: McCarney interview in Gazette tomorrow

    Every Division 1 football program wants their summer camps to be as big as possible. Here are some reasons off the top of my head: (1) revenue generation, (2) scouting prospects, (3) enhancing relationships with players currently being recruited, (4) enhancing relationships with prep coaches in recruiting areas, and (5) building a bigger fan base.
    Yes, indeed, quantity does matter! It makes an impression on high school and youth coaches when their kids, D-1 talent or no, are coached and pushed to be the best they can be. It builds loyalty. Chizik, like any college coach, needs as many prep coaches to be in his corner as possible.
    You will find ISU football camp advertising in the Ames Tribune as late as last week; yes, they want quantity.
    If an "average" high school sophomore football player, with no D-1 potential, is debating whether to attend the ISU camp or the Coe College camp, you can bet that Chizik wants him to come to Ames.

    I'm sure the ISU players loved him too. Unfortuntately, it didn't translate to wins.

    Unfortunately, "big" camp numbers (or whatever the McCarney standard is) didn't translate to wins either.

    I guess the lesson to be learned is that there's more to winning football than love and big summer camp numbers...

    I agree. Besides, if you can get a HS coach into a tradition of getting his kids to attend our camp, just because there is no D1 talent one year doesn't mean there won't be the next. But IMO, first and foremost, the camps are as much about the revenue as anything. If they weren't making money, they wouldn't be doing them.
