    Time to Eat Crow--McDermott Bashers

    For all those that have been bashing McDermott...........it's time to eat a little crow. One game does not make a season.......but the coach earned a little more respect than a few people have been giving him.
    Congratulations Coach & Clones!!! Great road win !!!

    It'll be 2-3 seasons before anything can be said unless we become unmistakably good or bad. Blind squirrels do find nuts.

    Nonetheless, that was a hell of a performance predicated on effort and coaching.

    Re: Time to Eat Crow--McDermott Bashers

    I have to admit, I was wondering if we got the right guy considering all the other success stories in the Big 12 this year with the new coaches and all.

    I realized about halfway through this game after seeing Jiri's transformation for myself, and seeing how this team battled back to win it... I'm fully behind McDermott.


    Go Sssssssssyclones!

    any reservation i may have had have since gone away. McDermott is a great basketball mind. I am very optimistic of his abilities and our years of play to come.

    Re: Time to Eat Crow--McDermott Bashers

    Have people been bashing G-Mac? I know there is an off-shoot here or there that does - yet I really haven't sensed much substance to it.

    Nice win though, regardless.

    Re: Time to Eat Crow--McDermott Bashers

    I was wondering tonight how much gray will be in GMac hair after he's on the ISU sideline for 20 years. That's 20 years of winning. We have found our guy, a guy who will rival Johnny Orr as the most influential coach ever at ISU.
    Not to take anything away from LE, as I am still a big LE fan. I just wish Minnesota had the ball$ to hire him.

    i don't think you have to wait 2 or 3 seasons to tell if the guys are buying into the system and playing hard. i have no doubt cyclone basketball will be a lot of fun for years to come. i really enjoy watching this team, even when they are making mistakes they always are playing hard.

    Re: Time to Eat Crow--McDermott Bashers

    I admit I was wrong about this game but I don't think I'm a McD basher. The first half played out like I thought it would except the D kept Mizzou close enough that they could fight back for a win in the 2nd. Sounds like they really did some good things today!
