    I really like the last line. Nicely-written article.

    I just hope it is a sign that McD will be able to finally get a team that is truly his and wants to there with him. Then maybe these last few years of hardship will finally be worth it.

    Maybe I'm wrong, but I think he's got that now. I think the last three years were long, but I could see how we got there. If he can pull off that turnaround, we're in for some good times in Cyclone Country!

    I hope we can develop real expectations of this team rather than just hope for 'improvement.' If Frank Martin is able to have success at Kansas State, there is no reason Greg McDermott can't have succss at Iowa State.

    The more I look at the players we have returning and coming in, the more I expect to win. We should get at least 13 wins in non-conference games and I see 8 very winnable conference games. Some might think it is funny/stupid to put high expectations on this team, but I sure hope the team doesn't feel that way.

    The only part of the article that I didn't agree with was his premature notion that Brackins decision to stay was the right one. Only time will tell whether he made the right decision for him and like a lot of people on this board the author doesn't seem to understand that players can improve while in the NBA, perhaps a lot more than in college.

    There are expectations, that's for sure. This team has to qualify for the NIT, at the least. Returning the starting PG, SG, PF and C....

    Agreed

    Adding Colvin, Gilstrap, Christophersen, Dendy, and Oliver to Brackins, Staiger, Garrett, Boozer, Buckley seems like a winning combination. They need to develop a winning attitude from Day 1 though.

    Hopefully Christopherson, Colvin, and Gilsrtap live up to the hype.

    Plenty of excuses delivered by this BB staff in three years, some warranted, others not. The bottom line: Gmac is making big time money and has not produced. He's also been given an unbelievable amount of slack. I think he needs to produce an NCAA team in 2009-2010 which could probably be accomplished by a top third Big 12 finish. If not, we need to move on.

    Big time money to Average Joe, not major college basketball. He gets, and deserves, at least two more years.
