    Why not Iowa State? Why not winning?

    That line really got me tonight. It's because of that we know we can do it. Does anyone have a copy of the quote where he said this bit?

    Re: Why not Iowa State? Why not winning?

    I don't remember the exact quote but he got it from somebody after Bobby Kennedy was assasinated. I loved that quote, I've used it a couple of times tonight. It was something like this, and I'm paraphrasing, "When I first was offered the job, I thought Why Not ISU. Why Not Winning. Why Not Bowl Games, Why Not National Recognition...." Okay, I officially butchered his quote. But it was something like that.

    “When you stop and think about it there are only eight head coaches in America that have been in one school longer than me and it’s been a hell of a ride,” McCarney said.

    Unbelievable. And they didn't even mention this in any article or report i've seen with the national media.

    Hate to be a follower but it's my Sig too. It's everything I ask for from our programs. Why not aspire to be greater? Screw everyone that says we should settle. Even D-Mac wouldn't except that.

    Even Bush tried to be greater than he was after 911. That is a commendable feature for people. Be better than others think. The next coach better be upbeat, because positivism is more fun to watch.
