    Dear God Tirrell, shut the F&$* up!

    Jamie Pollard did not get Dan McCarney fired! Why? Because he put a damn billboard up in Cedar Rapids? Give it up. He stirred up enthusiasm. He got 30,000 season tix sold. He got 55K in the seats twice. Dan not winning got him fired. 6 or 7 wins was totally to be expected this year. 8 or 9 was do-able. 3 wins is hell and gone from that.

    How about, instead of blaming JP and the "media" - as if you're not part of it, you look in the mirror Mouth-boy.

    Who set the over-under for the Iowa/Iowa State wins at 17 or 18 (whatever it was)? I don't think it was JP.

    You are every bit responsible, if not more, than JP for raising and flamming expectations.

    God what an idiot.

    Re: Dear God Tirrell, shut the F&$* up!

    Not that I am a fan of M&M but how did Marty personally have anything to do with it? From what I can tell he's backed Mac up time and time again and even before the season he thought if Mac won only 3 games he's still be around for another season. Yeah he's probably over-reacting some but even the most narrow-minded fan has to see that he does have some valid points.

    I think we as fans need to shoulder some of the blame because all you have to do is look at this messageboard to find tons of negativity and posts calling for Mac way back in the beginning of the season even. If it were for such a public outcry and instead a stronger push not to fire Mac then maybe we wouldn't be in this position. JP seems to side with the fans views more often than you think and I'm sure the division of fans probably made an impact on this as well.

    Wow, his show is still on the air? Why do you listen to such drivel? The guy has "eye" problems- "I know this guy, I know that guy, I did this, yada yada yada"

    Do yourself a favor and quit listening to him-I did months ago and my drive home is much more pleasant

    He wanted JP to take some of the blame for the poor season due to the billboard and the hype.

    Its not the fact that he mentioned it, its that he won't let it go. He threw a temper tantrum yesterday on the air about it.

    Re: Dear God Tirrell, shut the F&$* up!

    agreed. marty is an idiot. when i listen to the program i just feel sorry for miller. i mean he has to deal with a guy who is more concerned about screaming on air and coming up with stupid "theories" than actually doing his job. unless, of course, his job is to be the idiot on the program and make every caller sound smarter than him. then i'd say he's doing great

    I heard the tantrum yesterday and about laughed cuz he was getting all worked up. I agree though, the hype thing is a stretch but you can make a point that JP gave into the criticism and fan/public outcry too soon possibly before he made this decision. We aren't even done with the season and could potentially be 5-7 and in the big picture that is a setback but not the end of the world.

    Marty is the clown that they throw on there just to get people's attention and get worked up. He brings absolutely nothing to the show other than ignorance and hot air.

    We are not to blame. No fans wanted Dan to coach to bad records so that he could be fired. We can't have two winless conference seasons in 4 years.

    I thought there were 2 games left on the schedule, 5-7 is a possibility, althought perhaps a small one. We cannot be winless throughout the whole confrence season until theseason is over.

    I am Not blaming the fans, just pointing out the fact.

    It is obvious there are two games left. Given the trajectory we were on before Dmac's resignation, it seems very unlikely we would have won one of our remaining games. With Dmac's resignation announced, who knows what will happen, but if they do win one or both of the remaining games, then I will attribute it to the resignation.

    It got me thinking what if we go out the next 2 weeks and just lay an absoulte a** kicking to colorado and mizzou. I suppose anything is possible, howerver unlikely. I think things would really start to get crazy around here. I wonder if some would ask from Dan to not resign?

    Ok, just typing what I am thinking, and off topic, ill stop now...

    Why do you listen if he makes you so upset? Myself, I have found plenty of podcasts to listen to get my sports fix.
