    Rob Jeter

    If I remember correctly, the U of Wisconsin - Milwaukee coach (Rob Jeter) was the other one that Jamie was courting when we got Greg McD. He was an assistant at Wisconsin when Pollard was there.

    How did he do during Sunday's game as far as coaching? Looks like his record at UW-M has been good.

    Re: Rob Jeter

    They/He did well out of timeouts and the like. They run a good offensive set and execute pretty well. However, I noticed they didn't adjust well to our outside shooting and multiple shooters. Also, I pegged their team playing with more heart than talent. But nothing shouted out: We should have hired him.

    You're right. I think we've definitely got the right guy.
    I feel badly for him as the sacrificial lamb that JP trotted out there as a rumor, but it's worked out well for us.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I was thrilled when we hired GMac! And I am not going to bash him at all...this year! But I am not sure what any of us have seen to make the statement that "it's worked out well for us"? What has worked out well?

    That we seem to have a guy who loves to be here and the players seem to respect. I like that we won three in a row so far and the players havent given up when they were down. Im actually pretty excited for basketball this year, more than the previous few. This team looks like they have some fun kids, good kids, that I can really cheer for.

    I understand what you are saying. And I agree. BUT the process to getting to this point has been painful to say the least. Not all GMac's fault. But what if we finish in the bottom 2 of our league this year? I know that is not the positive frame of mind to have at the beginning of a season but it very well could happen! If it does...that is going to be a long January/February stretch! And if it does...there will not be much positivity on this board at all. What if we have another kid leave the program? Or two? That stuff has not been very much fun to watch!

    Again, I apologize for not being over-enthusiastic. I guess I am just being cautious? I would love nothing more than to see GMac cutting down the nets in the Big XII championship! I just think we are a lot closer to finishing last than we are finishing first.

    I know we are only 3 games in and I've stated before that we are much better than last year. Big difference for me is the ceiling for improvement is so much higher than in the past.

    Re: Rob Jeter

    two MAJOR upgrades I see at the start of this year versus where we finished last year is:

    1. 3 point shooting. We have more shooters than non-shooters. Between the extended three point line and our shooters, the post opens up.

    2. Dribble penetration. DG, LS and WE all get to the hoop and make defenders commit to a double team. Granted DG is struggling a bit at finishing, but attacking the basket opens up more options.

    Notice I didn't say from the start of last year to the start of this year... I am talking about how we finished a full season to today where we are starting a new one. It gives me much hope and assurance in GMac (not that I had doubts) .... I am glad of the progress I have seen from last year to this year AND from Fridays game to Sundays game.

    I think there is no question that is true but I really don't think people are asking GMac cut down the nets for a Big 12 championship. Finishing in the top half of the big 12 seems to be a goal being throw around here a lot.

    I went to the game on friday and I didn't think there was a chance in **** we were going to pull that one out but I hope this team surprises me a lot like that this year. I know it is only 3 games in but in all reality I don't think it is a strectch to say we look better that we did last year...And as long as the shooting keeps up we will win more games than last year...

    Re: Rob Jeter

    You're right to apologize. Greg McDermott is the man. He's cleaned up the roster now and he's going to show us his coaching ability. Thanks for apologizing, and don't let's hear that you hate Cael Sanderson and Greg Geoffrey.

    That is a fair goal for this season! I would be very satisfied with the growth shown in order to finish in the top half of the Big XII!

    I realize that the program was a mess at the time of the transition from WM to GMac. I think basketball is easier to turn around than football is as well. It is way too early to know how this season will turn out! But no matter what...being 3-0 is as good as we can be right now! That is for sure!

    Re: Rob Jeter

    I have to say, I sometimes wish we had hired Jeter, but for personal reasons. I'm a huge fan of McDermott and think he has the program headed in a better direction than Wayne Morgan. One of Jeter's assisitant coaches (Chad Boudreau) would have came with him to ISU. He was an assistant at Indian Hills in Ottumwa and played his high school ball at Harmony of Farmington, IA. He also babysat my cousins and I when we were little. It would have been pretty cool to say my old babysitter is an assistant coach at ISU. I wandered down to the bench and got to see him and his mom was at the game as well. He even invited my cousin up from Simpson for the game. Very good guy and a great coach.

    But like I've said, I also am really happy with Greg McDermott. I think we have a bright future with him.

    What did you think of the games this weekend? Were you happy with how we played? Any surprises?

    1st game...Disappointed in our shooting, but knew that there were some butterflies for a lot of the guys. Vanderbeken played better than I expected (still worry about him in Big 12 play) Overall it was basically what I expected. Colorado runs a similar offense...should help us in that regard.

    2nd...Expected better shooting than Friday night, but again I've seen our guys a lot more than most. So I wasn't shocked by anything.

    3rd...Thought this was one that we could drop, but we played well. Would have been nice to see Lucca and Eikmeier in the game at the same time...Just because I'm curous to see what the defense does.

    Based on practices and games...this team has some potential to do some nice things.
