Holy Smokes. Goodness Gracious. UnBEEEEElievable. This past week has been one of the craziest I have ever experienced. In no uncertain terms, this week has been the equivalent of showing up drunk and riding the most exotic roller coaster with Mike Tyson continually punches you in the stomach.
During one of the breaks, the manager of Applebee’s announced over the loud speaker that, “Coach McCarney is going to buy everybody in the house a round of drinks and as much cake as they want.” And indeed that is what he did. The 250 plus folks at Applebee’s received a beverage and some delicious dessert on the man that had already given so much to Iowa State University. It was a gesture that characterized his entire era of Cyclone football. He always looked out for others first. He didn’t do it to show off; he did it because he loves this place and the people. After the show was done, he stayed and chatted with folks for over an hour. He even posed for a few pictures. As I sat in my booth watching this unfold, I smiled. Even in the most difficult of times, Mac found the positive. It is a lesson I will always remember. Thanks for everything Coach. We’ll miss you. [/FONT]
That is just so DMac. What a consumate professional and people-person. We were lucky to have such a quality guy "resurrect" the ISU football program.
