    Coaches and Showing Emotion...

    I realize guys like Billichek, Parcells, Ferentz and many others don't show much emotion on the sidelines...always cool and calm, never getting overly emotional.

    For the longest time I'd put GMac into this category, he never gets too high (fist pumps, Technicals, getting the crowd up). But after last night....that's exactly what we need.

    Coach Jake from UNI showed plenty last night. Anyone remember the play during the second half where there was a scramble for a loose ball and Ali came up with it and called timeout. Coach Jake was very emotional with several fist pumps and applause for the effort. As a result the UNI bench exploded out on to the court to greet the team. At the point, I really felt we were toast. How can you not get fired up when your coach so passionate. UNI had the edge...

    Look at CPR...he picks his spots well and when he does its freaking awesome.

    I'd like GMac to show some of this...Hilton would feed off of it...ala LE and Orr.

    Another good example of this is the Broncos football coach Josh McDaniels. Dude would go nuts on the side lines before/during/after games.

    Re: Coaches and Showing Emotion...

    Mac doesn't show emotion? Where have you been? I really didn't pay much attention to it last night but there were times he was stomping about something or on the refs.

    I've seen him fired up quite a bit after big plays, mad at refs on bad calls, and in players faces when they made mistakes. You want us to go back to Wayne Morgan days when our coach rarely got out of his seat and basically sat with a blank stare on his face for most of the game?

    I LOVED Eustacys emotion. Always loved him when he got fired up over there

    I'm not going to be that guy but some people will point to Wayne winning a tourney game vs. Minn and then losing to UNC who then proceeded to win the National Championship.
    There are a lot of coaches who sit, let the players do their thing, and win.

    How about this then... after they get fired stay in town to sell satalites? Not trying to start another WM debate here but the fact that he hasn't coached a game since his time at ISU says a lot IMO. His lack of emotion wasn't the biggest issue when he was coach either but more about the lack of discipline his teams showed on the floor.

    There are, on the same token there are also Manginos that are too fired up the wrong way and they also win, but is that what we want? I think it depends on the team some, but I think it is important to a team for a coach to cheer on good effort.

    Ha, do you have any idea the amount of money he makes off of what you call "sell satalites"? That's why he stuck in town! I don't think that its anything to sneeze at:

    Wayne Morgan gets an award ? and we have the picture to prove it Des Moines Register Staff Blogs | The Des Moines Register

    I personally think its good that people open up small local business that can help the community they are living in, don't know about you.

    Also the rumor always was that Wayne was offered an assistant job from Keno when he went to Providence because Wayne was familiar with the NY/NJ area but Wayne turned it down. Some people say because he thought he deserved a head coaching job others say its because he was making some good money "sell satalites."

    because if he got a technical we would be complaining that he cost us points and took away our ability to win, or we would over analayze if he planned the technical at the right time and how we would have done it.

    I still remember betting on how many minutes into a game it would be before Floyd threw his jacket off. The crowd would go nuts. Still love that guy. I don't care what casino he goes to.
