    Re: McCarney Thrilled by Rhoads Hire

    He is really a class guy all the time. I sincerely respect McCarney and how he handles himself in these things.

    He knows how to make sure he doesn't say too much on a sore spot, but he is absolutely behind Paul Rhoads. Nice interview!

    Re: McCarney Thrilled by Rhoads Hire

    Very cool. I think its funny how the Register was beaten to the punch on getting a Mac interview by the CR Gazette. Unless there is something I am missing, I believe this is the first interview with Mac after the hire?

    Mac also had Iowa ties, so it is not totally surprising.

    No doubt about it.

    One thing about Mac - he's thrilled about everything. A very COOL way to go through life unlike some of "us" on these boards who post a manifesto when we don't win every single game of any sport by triple digits. Great human being that Mac is but we're off into the future with PR.

    Re: McCarney Thrilled by Rhoads Hire

    Why wouldn't he be thrilled, basically by hiring Rhoads, Pollard is saying "Whoops I sure screwed up by firing Mac, so I will bring back his entire staff and claim victory!!!!".... ISU would have been MUCH better off by not firing Mac in the first place.

    I don't think Mac is happy Pollard screwed up, I think they both thought a change had to be made...8 years is a long coaching gig in college football and it wasn't like we were keeping him around because we were competing for nation titles. I see your point and it could be that, but not in my opinion...

    I dont think any of that is true.

    agreed, we would probably be in the EXACT same spot if we still had Mac, coming off a two win season with a brand new coach to start 09...

    Ah hem....can't agree on keeping Mac, it was time for a change. That doesn't change the fact he's a classy guy.
