    Anyone else going to feel bad

    When they see Mac in that press conference. I am gong to really feel sorry for this guy, all he has done for Iowa State, and now he is going to resign to save ISU money. This guy is not just a good coach, but a great, and spectacular person. I have personally met Mac (my friends dad used to be a roommate...long story), and this guy is a great man.

    Best wishes for the future, and i hope one day you can come back and join the ISU tradition and family.

    yep. I think the move has to be made, but I do wish there was another way.

    Not too much. He is a grown man. Unfortunately this is the nature of the beast. Any sorrow I have will be tempered by the excitement of the new coach and with the prospect of this program improving.

    Re: Anyone else going to feel bad

    From growing up in the Walden/McCarney era, those pictures are a stark reminder he did take us to a place that few if any of us at the time was possible. Back in 1995 if someone told me ISU would beat Iowa from 1998 to 2002 consecutively, I would have laughed my rear end off. Or the mere mention of bowl games.

    I just hope to God they don't bring in some dufus nobody has heard of with no experience, eg Bushes 1st Chief Justice Nominee.

    Agree, we need someone with "name recognition and hope" that will allow us to sell tickets.

    Re: Anyone else going to feel bad

    I'm going to be sick to my stomach watching this press conference tonight. I'm not sure how I am going to react. I do know that I am going to toast a cold one to him later tonight though!

    I think JP is having a harder time than Mac with the presser.

    Re: Anyone else going to feel bad

    It's always sad to see a coach go, but I'm not going to feel sorry for him. (Please read the rest of the post before you kill my rep.) It's rare for a coach to retire on his own terms. Even Johnny Orr didn't "retire" on his own terms. It unfortunately goes with the territory of the career. But Dan McCarney has a lot of reasons to leave his post with his head held high. He's leaving with the longest current tenure in the Big 12, one of the elite football conferences in the country. While at ISU he lead the team to more bowl games than the rest of the previous coaches combined, and he's leaving the program in better shape than any coach since Earl Bruce. Not to mention the relationships he's developed and the respect he's earned while in Ames. I hope that DM will look back on his time at ISU with pride.
