    Mac McCausland

    I am from Central Iowa, but spent T-Giving weekend in the Cedar Rapids area. One of the news stations did a one-on-one interview with Mac McCausland Friday night, I believe.

    They asked him about Steve Alford (paraphrasing): "Great young coaching mind who has turned the corner with the Iowa Hawkeyes."

    They asked him about Greg McDermott: "Great young coach, but he will have his struggles in that conference."

    They asked him who will be the best of the Big 4 in Iowa: "It might be Drake."

    Mac McCausland - you are a biased idiot, and know very little!

    Re: Mac McCausland

    As usual...another Hawkeye homer. "Turned the corner..." Yeah, right. He went the wrong direction, i think.

    Re: Mac McCausland

    His son is the only player I know to hold a press conference saying he would walk on at Iowa. McCausland knows very little about bball and is a hawkeye homer. perfect fit for that school.

    I don't know a lot about Drake, but UNI has looked pretty solid so far this year. I thing the Clones are going to struggle at times this year because of all the new player and lack of a post player, but to say GMac is going to struggle with the Big 12 more than SA is going to or has struggled in the Big 10 is unrealistic.


    The Hawk have looked okay so far this year, but it is early in the year and thier MO is to falter as the season goes on, and then make an amazing recovery in the Big 10 tourney, then blow up in the post season. Consitancy is the key!

    What's funny is that it's kind of true - donors get a cool little "premium member" sign by their name!!

    Yep. Sure looks like he turned the corner last year against Northwestern State in last years NCAA Tournament. Must have turned another corner last night against Arizona State.

    I remember when he tried to differentiate himself by saying that Iowa was running their "quarter-court" offense instead of running a half-court offense. I cringed in pain..

    Along this same line of thinking, Steve Alford said a few years ago in a pregame interview that he thought his team was a top 10 practice team in the country. What on earth does that mean? My friends and I still get a huge laugh out of that!
