    McDermott and a new coach

    Ok most of us are stating like me we need a new coach. I have been thinking on this matter on what coach to get to replace him. The only coach I can even think about is Bobby Knight. Thats the attitude we need to make ISU a power in the big12. He knows the Big12 and he knows the Big10. He also knows how to win, How to coach, and most of all he knows the NCAA. I would be willing to get him here and give him full access. I would believe that in ONE yes 1 year...he would turn this around to a winner. He has standards, Integrity, and man can he recruit - and believes in those standards. I dont care what anyone says bad about him. HE is one dang good coach.

    "In his 29 years at Indiana, Knight won three NCAA national championships and had just seven seasons in which his teams failed to win 20 games. "

    "Bob Knight told Texas Tech he wouldn't accept his $250,000 coaching salary this year because his team failed to live up to his expectations -- and so did he. "

    "I'm just not at all satisfied with what transpired with our team in terms of our fundamental execution," Knight told The Dallas Morning News for its online edition. "I don't think it's anybody's fault but mine."

    I vote for Bobby Knight - but that wont happen I knw...but the thought...wow

    I vote for Matt Damon - but that won't happen, I know. But the thought...that would get Sarah Silverman all excited!

    The season's young. Hopefully the heart to heart the team and coaches had will right the ship.

    Actually, the day the LE "scandal" went public...that's when it started.

    I vote we wait until the end of the season and see how things play out before passing judgement based on 1/3 of the season.

    This brilliant thought needs it's own thread?

    Lon Kruger.

    As frustrating as the McDermott era has been, I haven given up yet. The next 7 weeks will decide his future here IMO.

    The meltdown probably began in Wayne's disappointing final season.... it is now in full force, because unfortunately Gmac has yet to produced a team as good as the team that got Morgan fired (with some help from D1 Scheduling). Hard to believe.

    For me, the meltdown started when we lost at home to a South Dakota State team that didn't win another road game the rest of the season. It took a small hiatus and then came back in full force when I realized this team has the lowest basketball IQ of any ISU team I remember watching.

    For me that EA Sports loss was never really a bad loss. #1 because it was just an exhibition. #2 because those teams always have a bunch of good college players who didn't make it to the pros who are more mature and experienced than the college teams they are playing. Michael Nurse used to play on those teams... and I'd take him over any guards we've had since Blalock and Stinson.

    I assume you mean 3 1/3 seasons?
