    McDermott = Dan Hawkins

    I think we have the exact same situation. Just like Colorado, we hire the successful HC at a mid-major, and his top assistant stays behind as the new HC. Just as it's obvious that Chris Peterson was the reason for Hawkins' success at Boise St., Iowa State is coming to terms with the same thing - Jacobson was responsible for a lot of GMac's success at UNI.
    Both schools hired the "wrong" coach, and now can't afford to buy them out...

    Re: McDermott = Dan Hawkins

    Jacobson has shown a far better ability to adjust to his players than Mac, that's for sure.

    It's absolutely the same situation. It will most likely end the same way, too.

    Is there any way that we can work out a trade with UNI for Jacobsen and they can take back GMAC????

    I remember GMac's UNI teams having much more toughness and discipline than his ISU teams do. They haven't lost that at all - maybe even escalated it.
    And, Jake is a screamer. Bet he was the ***-chewer for Gmac, who misses him now...

    Sometimes it's the assistants that instill that in the players, I know I have played on teams where that has been the case... Jacobson doesn't SEEM like that guy, but maybe he is.

    Maybe in crunch time, he should let TJ run the game?

    Seems unlikely. I was just talking about the Greg McDermott = Dan Hawkins comparison.

    Would be a good comparison if Doug would have signed with ISU.

    Not quite the same. Hawkins has a special ingrediant...nepotism.

    Re: McDermott = Dan Hawkins

    well, this thread is as good as any for my cathartic post. i felt when doug comitted to uni, it really was a sign that mac was saying to doug, i won't be at isu four years from now. go somewhere where you can play and enjoy yourself. i think doug would have been a good enough player to contribute to isu if mac thought mac would be retained for doug's entire eligibility. had to get it off my chest. please feel free to refute this post. i need to see a glass half full right now. can mac's coaching ability take this program to at least ncaa tournament selection caliber?
