    Mccarney

    Maybe this is old news to some but I just recently heard that Dan is having some health issues. Possibly a serious eye problem. Anyone heard this?


    I think some are getting a little ahead of themselves. So far CPR has done a pretty good job for his first year. If we win 3 games this year will everyone feel the same way? I hope we go undefeated and CPR has a ton of job offers but I'd like to give him a few years at the helm before I decide how great of coach he is.

    My prayers go out to Coach Mccarney. We need people like him to be around college athletics forever.

    Same here.

    Re: Mccarney

    I hope everything is alright with Mac, but to change the subject a little. I was disappointed to see some of Mac's playbook still being run when last night on a 3rd and short, we ran an option to the short side of the field for no gain. I hated that play when Mac ran it and was hoping to never see it again.

    Re: Mccarney

    He has been battling a detached retina for a while now and there are a few corrective options - the most severe being the removal of the eye.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Re: Mccarney

    Coach Mac and his family will be in my thoughts and prayers. With something like this, I don't really care about wins or losses, play calling or recruiting, I just hope for the best for someone who was obviously a good person.

    There are other threads where that can be discussed.
