    Marquee win..

    I can not believe that McDermott is in year four and still looking for his first marquee win. Last night was exactly like McDermott's first year at ISU when the 'Clones took Kansas to overtime, only to lose in the final minutes. Pollard was quick to say, "You paid for this." Us Cyclone fans were quick to assume it was the start of something special. I know Texas is one heck of a team -- it's just sad that we are all so excited that the team "proved they wanted to be there." I'm getting to the point of apathy. I need something TANGIBLE this year or I will have gone from predicting a McDermott banner in 20 years to wanting change.

    Re: Marquee win..

    Can't say that I disagree with you. But, last nights performance gave me HOPE that ISU just might get to 9 wins in the Big 12. Is that good enough to go Dancing? Not Sure but at least we are competative in the Conference.

    Sounds like GMac is back as the Coach regardless of the record this Season. So the best thing to do is SIT BACK and hope this team continues to improve.

    Your username kinda creeps me out. Other than that though, I understand the sentiment, but I think your point would have more traction if Texas was ranked 15-25 as opposed to #1. A tad different.

    Greg has dry lips. Unfortunately licking them just makes them dry out even more. He really should look into balm during games.

    Re: Marquee win..

    What does a "marquee win" really do? I mean, I was there when Walden had his "marquee win" against Nebraska. Turns out that the win wasn't meaningful at all, since the team went right back to losing.
    A steady, consistent pattern of progression and beating the teams you have a right to beat mean more to me...

    I would agree with this statement. I would rather have some consistency. Knocking off better teams is just icing.

    Your horribly wrong. His marquee win got him an 8 year contract extention.

    The loss of scholarships and NCAA violations from the Morgan era were what got him that extension, not anything that he has done on the court.

    Morgan was not there for the Walden era.

    My memory fails me...if that game triggered the infamous extension, I stand corrected.

    Cause it's fun. Then if they make it passed a few bad jokes they are one of the guys. Just saying.

    Also yeah that Nebraska game was the one that triggered a terrible contract extension.

    Welcome to CycloneFanatic Greglixhislips. Very happy to have you! One suggestion: Don't start a new thread when you don't have an original topic of conversation or your post could just as easliy go into another thread.
