    Sounds like Minnesota fired Mason

    I wonder if there are any Minnesota commits looking for a new home.

    7 bowl games in 8 years, and he got the axe.

    Not saying he was an elite coach, but I think that's pretty decent for being in Minnesota, without even having your own stadium to play in.

    That said....that was a horrible meltdown against Tech in the bowl game.

    I think it is a little bit the same situation as Mac for us. He has had some success, but many fans didn't like some of his tendencies and he couldn't really get over the hump.

    Re: Sounds like Minnesota fired Mason

    This is just an example of why ISU fans should love our AD situation. That Minnesota program is run by a real bumbler.

    Football - Mason was probably due to be fired, but if the TTU field goal kicker misses, Mason likely doesn't get fired. They gave him a five year extension last year, so the buyout will be huge. All while raising money for a new stadium. (IMO, why they really canned him. I bet he was a liability in getting donations.)

    Mens Basketball - Fired Monson less then ten games into the season. The Mpls newspaper reported him as fired last March, but the AD apparently didn't have the guts to actually pull the trigger.
