    JP is completely aware of what is going on. I'm not a huge Jamie fan, but he is not totally stupid!

    Why not call BDV and ask him why LE was fired. That is when the program started to go down hill.

    Folks, just have patience. It takes like 5 to 10 years to get your athletes in the program and for them to understand the system. We will get there. I mean it is greedy to think ISU should make the NCAA tourney more than a couple times in a decade.

    Greg will get it turned around. We are showing signs of progress.

    5 to 10 years to get the players in the system? You do realize they graduate after 4, right? By the 3rd or 4th year, you should have your guys in the program and understanding the system - well that were if there appeared to be a system.

    And this from the biggest GMac supporter from day 1 until about November 15th. Incredibly person, but not a good fit for ISU apparently.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Jamie did say Mens basketball should be the marquee program in ISU athletics. That was on the reasons he fired Morgan. That is just comical now.

    Agreed, but they don't even put the post game interviews on Cyclones.com anymore. At least they acknowledge it is a mess.

    I also believe there were comments made about the rebuild being a 5 year process and that he would consider the 5th year basically Mac's first year here.

    Of course looking back at what we had under Morgan, did we really need to rebuild? We had much better results in his tenure than we are having now. And in the interest of full disclosure, I was fine with letting Wayne go as I thought while his teams were very talented, they were also poorly coached and not disciplined.

    He won't get that long from anyone if he doesn't get things going.
