    How to Honor Mac 11/18/06?

    Anyone have ideas on best way to thank Coach Mac & his family for all they've done for ISU? How about a McCarney Flag--who's got one or knows where one could be picked up?

    Endow a football scholarship at Iowa State in Mac's name. I would honor a walk-on from the state of Iowa since Mac has done a good job finding those types of players who can contribute.

    In the future (5-10 years), I think we should rename the Bergstrom indoor facility after him.

    I'm sure the Bergstrom family might have a problem with that.

    ISU would not be were it is today without coach Mac, but it would also not be here if it weren't for the Bergstrom familiy. With the money they have donated for the indoor facility and the football weightroom, plus other donations I'm sure.....They deserve to have it in their name!!

    Name the field Dan McCarney Field? I don't know but Mac needs his name associated with something because what you see now with the facility upgrades he helped get it built. Yes the Bergstroms gave the money and got their name on it but it was Dan that was pushing to get that thing built long before it did.

    I thought maybe naming part of the renovated stadium after him would be appropriate. Leave the stadium and field named after Jack Trice, but perhaps the walkway around the stadium, a particular section of suites, or maybe even just a grassy park type area inside the new fencing.

    How about a statue or large plaque on the practice facility or outside the main entrance to the stadium that says "The house that Mac built."

    How about naming Elwood Dr. after McCarney some how? I know that would take a joint effort with the city name, but it would be along the line of the Twins naming the street into the Metrodome "Kirby Puckett Pl" or whatever it is. Just an idea. McCarney Dr.?


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    I like the idea about naming a street after McCarney. Great way to remember someone without stepping on anyone's toes. Would always keep him in the forefront of Cyclone fans.
