    Cool McCarney wide right...........

    And then there is this little gem from Brad Dickson's Upon Further Review column in today's Omaha Worald Herald:

    "The 21 year old daughter of former Iowa State coach Dan Mc Carney is set to go to trial on charges that include trying to kick a police officer. The kick went wide right, which served as a grim reminder of the 35 close games the Cyclones blew during the Mc Carney era."

    Avoiding the fact that this is from a Nebbie columnist, you got to admit that there is a bit of humor and irony in all of that some where.

    Usually these kinds of things can be found at www.omaha.com, but not this one. I couldn't find one. But at times his stuff also appears at the Fox Sports website.

    Re: McCarney wide right...........

    The Iowa City paper The Press Citizen is treating this trial like a murder case. Iowa City is full of rich girls who come from wealthy families (chicago suburbs) who drink way too much and have a hissy fit as they get arrested. Disgruntled Hawk fans are just using whatever route they can to vent built up anger that Dan Mc Carney owned them during his time in Ames. The paper is even known by locals as bad journalism. What she did was silly, but how some reporters are handling it is downright shameful.

    Those close games are the reason McCarney is no longer coach at ISU.

    You know what is sad, I think they built that into NCAA football '08. I lost a game last night on a last second field goal.

    Yep, I wish somebody would have made DMac play some Playstation. You score when you can.

    I will never forget the Texas Tech game where DMac tried to run out the clock with 3 minutes before the half. Tech used their timeouts, got the ball back, and went down and scored a touchdown. I knew right then that DMac was no longer fit to be head coach at ISU.

    I think it would be funny if they had "ask Mac" instead of "ask Corso". Your only choices would be to run a draw play or take a knee anytime inside of 3 minutes.

    At this point in time I would just love to have some "close" games again.

    So would I. But what can we do, our athletic director has taken us on his "next big step". How do you like it so far?


    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.
