    Why GMac is great for program

    Taken from DMR:
    McDermott removed starter Wesley Johnson in the first half for an excessive display of enthusiasm. He played only 21 minutes after playing 31 in the first exhibition. "You have to have respect for the game," McDermott said. "We want to make plays, and at least pretend that it's happened before. I think Wesley got the message. That's a young guy becoming a little emotional and it won't happen again."

    GMac is exactly what this program needed and this show exactly why. Morgan would have never taken a player out for over celebrating, he probably encouraged it. Can Gmac be a 2 sport coach?

    When is the last time an ISU player was held accountable for not respecting the game. The last time that I remember is when Eustachy benched Fizer his sophmore season against Iowa. This team will be a pleasure to watch.

    It's crazy how optimistic we are about MBB and how pesimistic we are about football...

    That's quite the turnaround from a few years ago.

    JP has to do something to try and turn around the sinking ship in FB...he just has to IMO to achieve our expansion projects.

    Re: Why GMac is great for program

    What I really really like about Big Mac is his interviews. WM's interviews with John Walters inevitably consisted of 5-10 minutes of unadulterated, unbridled boredom accompanied by a monotone voice and simple, obvious points. When Wayne was asked how he thought his team performed after a loss, he would say something along the lines of, "not good." That's all...no elaboration, just annoying and very uncomfortable to listen to. I enjoy DMac for multiple reasons, but that's the one thing I've been really impressed with.

    Re: Why GMac is great for program

    I was going to post the same thing. How nice is it to have a bball coach with cherries? BIG cherries.....


    This is from the CR Gazette:

    Wes Johnson, a 6-foot7 freshman from Texas, made the cardinal mistake of thumping his chest like Tarzan and strutting around the court after scoring on a dunk in the first half. McDermott promptly yanked him for a private conversation about improper decorum.
    ‘‘Yeah, that’s not going to happen,’’ McDermott said. ‘‘You have to play the game, and you have to have respect for the game. We want to make plays and at least pretend that it’s happened before.’’

    Yeah, that’s not going to happen
    My favorite quote of the whole thing, I just love it!
