    GMac to Minnesota?

    Did anybody see this in today's St. Paul Pioneer Press? The article mentions McDermott as a candidate for the now vacant Minnesota job. Why on earth anybody would see this as a step up is beyond me. Gmac just signed a nice contract, is in his home state, has Hilton Magic, is recruiting up a storm, etc. etc.

    Charley Walters is hit or miss on his daily "rumor" page, but this seemed to me to be very questionable "reporting." I suppose it's one of those cases where a good coach's name will come up for any major vacancy. I about did a spit take with my coffee this morning.

    Re: GMac to Minnesota?

    They must be smoking some good stuff up north. There is a 0% chance of GMac taking that job. ISU's future looks very bright and Minnesota's program is still trying to rebuild from their scandal-ridden program in the 90's.

    Re: GMac to Minnesota?

    I had to get back on my chair after laughing so hard to that one. The only name I've heard of being connected to that opening that was in any way close to ISU is Morgan and even that seems highly unlikely. GMac is not going anywhere for a very long time.


    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: GMac to Minnesota?

    That entire article is some poor soul's delusion. Leave an NBA coaching job to coach to Gophers???
    Mention a coach in the first year of his contract to take another position???

    Don't drink the bong water...........

    Re: GMac to Minnesota?

    Wow.

    If Majerus turned down Arizona State and USC what evidence is there he would be "seriously interested" in Minnesota?

    If it didn't say "Iowa State" after GMac's name I would have assumed he didn't realize he wasn't still at Northern Iowa.

    Re: GMac to Minnesota?

    Half those names he listed on there would probably laugh if they got a call from Minnesotas AD. That guy must of been on meth when he wrote that article.

    Re: GMac to Minnesota?

    That's great! Maybe they'll change their mind once they see how much it'll cost to buy out his contract!

    Sounds like the neighbors to the east. I hear Pat Riley and Phil Jackson are on the Gophers' short list!!
