    Mac radio show

    Listening to it, and Fennelly was on for the 1st half hour. It sounded like he was delivering Mac's coaching eulogy, praising Dan for all he's done for the entire athletic department.

    Re: Mac radio show

    The tone of Mac's voice seems resigned in my opinion. Not his usual upbeat enthusiasm. Most calls are providing praise and positive towards him, which he says he really appreciates. He said he'll always be a Cyclone. First call was a former player who graduated in 1999 (sorry didn't get the name) that read off about a 5 minute tribute he wrote, how that senior class wanted to get Mac to his first Bowl, how much Mac means to players on and off the field and after graduation, how Gene Smith stuck with Mac back then and now is another crossroads that he hopes Mac survives. The crowd at the Applebys applauded loudly afterwards.

    Re: Mac radio show

    Everyone is calling and wishing him the best and what he means to ISU. I totally agree with them, but did I miss something? I never heard an announcement. This has to be hard for Mac to do this show.

    I think that player was Bill Marsau.

    Re: Mac radio show

    No announcement, but I think Mac has been told. I keep catching his words in the past tense - like just now he said it's been great to have been a part of the Iowa-ISU rivalry. Maybe I'm reading too much into it, but Walters is doing the same thing with the praise. Says he wouldn't be the Voice of the Cyclones if not for Mac.

    Re: Mac radio show

    OK....I have heard him use past tense a few times which means he done.
    (example "it was great to have been part of a rivalry" "nice working with you John" Etc...

    Re: Mac radio show

    I get the sense it's over. The conversation between Walters and Mac sounds like the main people have been told.

    I picked it up too. I feel bad for Mac as a man, I really wish the results would have been different on the field.

    Re: Mac radio show

    If he is here next year, that was the weirdest call-in show I've ever heard.

    Re: Mac radio show

    Has anyone else noticed that Mac is talking in the past tense, like its been great to have been able to have such a rivalry with Iowa and telling John Walters its been nice working with him. I wonder if Pollard has already told him because it sure didn't sound like Mac was expecting to be here after the season from his tone.

    Re: Mac radio show

    That was a rather eerie show. He'll land on his feet somewhere, I'm confident of that. His efforts haven't gone unnoticed...if nothing else, he'd make one hell of a salesman. I don't doubt he could sell ice to eskimos
