    Bill Fennelly should be the Men's Bball coach...

    I am completely serious. Greg would never stomp anyone (let alone a ranked conference foe) like the Twister Sisters are right now. Fennelly is the best coach in our athletic department right now, imho (Cael included). Greg lovers, rip me now.... Wild Bill is the man


    Who are you George Costanza? I am the opposite of every man you've ever met.

    no, it's a totally different beast. bill is very good at his job, don't get me wrong, but there's no way he'd be as good of a mens coach as mcdermott.

    I'm pretty sure Fennelly could have found a way to be 1-6 in the Big XII at this point in the season.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    BS thread. Check back when McDermott has been on the job as long as Fennelly.

    Re: Bill Fennelly should be the Men's Bball coach...

    Positives for Bill F:

    Adjusts his game plans depending on his players. For years, he played exclusively zone defense. Now, he plays almost exclusively man.

    Has high expectations each year, for himself and players, and holds himself and players accountable.

    Even with 2 starters out with injuries, makes it into the NCAA tournament.

    Always praises the fan base, since the first game on campus. Build fan base from under 1,000 to 10,000.

    Bill F is easily the best coach at ISU. If Christy Johnson keeps it up long term, she can achieve the same respect as Bill.

    But, not sure it would translate. However, I'd be willing to guess he'd be no worse than 1-6 in the conference.

    He also holds onto his players.

    BS post. You really can't be serious.

    What did Bill F do in his second year? I can tell you the women's team was much much worse than the men's team was in the years before Bill took over.

    He set a standard for success when he first stepped on board. He recruited great players.

    McDermott will never catch Bill F in conference wins, NCAA tourney appearances, or anything having to do with wins/losses. He's already way behind.

    I'm not saying Bill F could coach the men, but don't underplay what Bill has done with the women's team.

    yeah, but what would we do when BF needed to be in two separate cities at the same time for the final 4?

    Wesley isn't correct. But, transfers don't matter when you win games. Or, when you recruit enough good players to make up for those transfers.

    Why can't I be serious? Give McDermott ten years to build up his program, as Fennelly has done, then talk about whether he's beating top 5 teams or not. Fennelly sure as heck wasn't doing that in his first three, and to bust on McDermott because he isn't doing so is just plain ridiculous.
