    " I know that our guys are very excited about it. We had a spirited workout this morning after being off yesterday."

    That's good to hear. Here's hoping they play with a fire in their belly

    ISU can show up and play with pride or they can shut it down. I hope they come out ready to fight and battle for 40 mins.

    Re: Greg McDermott 1-11 Q&A

    I have a feeling that Colvin was a lot closer to being kicked off the team completely than what we think. His comment at the very beginning of that answer tells me there was a lot of doubt to whether he should be a Cyclone or not.

    Did his some of his teammates maybe push for him to stay or was this all McDermott's decision? It seemed pretty obvious on Saturday that some of his teammates seemed much more receptive to him than others.

    I did like what I saw out of Chris on Saturday, although the cynic in me wonders if he was just trying to get a better character reference for when he leaves the team.

    And maybe the cynic in me wonders if some of his teammates think he should have been kicked off...

    I agree. If they don't get things figured and worked out, I think in a couple of games we can probably name the two different factions on the team. I hope though, that they can work this stuff out and unite.

    Re: Greg McDermott 1-11 Q&A

    I don't know very much about what happens behind the scenes but I'm glad this came to a head and Chris is still on the team. When I was around that age there were times I needed a kick in the ***, as I think most of us sometimes do when we're young, and it looks like Chris took a look at himself and will benefit from it.

    Yeah, maybe, but it won't matter if he does decide to leave. Mac will just then say he put on a show for this reference.

    Re: Greg McDermott 1-11 Q&A

    I think Mac is in charge. However I think Mac was certainly aware that this would not look good since Colvin was our best recruit in a few years. He has to be aware that kicking our number 1 recruit off the team, regardless of what he may have done. Would not look good to fans. I mean Hell Anthony tucker is running around Iowa city with a bottle of whiskey in one hand and a beer in the other and he is not gone.
