    Mike DeCourcy

    Listening to an interview with Mike DeCourcy (sp?), who thinks that Mac should continue to coach at ISU after this season. As some of you probably know, I agree.

    He also thinks that 96 teams in the Dance will ruin the tournament. I'm not sure if I agree or disagree.

    Re: Mike DeCourcy

    mac is going to get another year no matter if we like it or not. 96 teams in the tourney really just renders the regular season meaningless. You're looking at teams with 5-11 conference records getting in at that point.

    Re: Mike DeCourcy

    Still think adding more teams to the tourny is just a joke. It really would ruin it in my opinion. Adding 30 some mediocre teams that have no shot to win in just for the sake of being able to say they made the dance. It's not like everyone doesn't already have their chance to make it, no reason to make it bigger.

    Re: Mike DeCourcy

    Unless we lose every game remaining and half of the team leaves, Mac will get to see year #5.

    As for the tournament, I'm not necessarily opposed. You bring more teams into the fold. Fanbases don't give up on seasons in mid-January. They say the number of bowls has watered down college football, but I'd say that all of us ISU fans were pretty elated with the way this football season turned out.

    Re: Mike DeCourcy

    I do like the idea of 68 teams instead of 65. 4 play in games weeds out the worst of the worst even more.

    I think play-in games should be the marginal major conference teams, if we have them at all. They've had their chance.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I agree 100%. If you win your conference, no matter how lame of a conference it might be, you should get in the main field.

    Whether there is 1, 4 or 32 play-in games, I don't think many people are going to watch them.

    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    The play in game is a joke. They should have just taken one of the at-large bids away, but too many people probably complained.

    Re: Mike DeCourcy

    Money talks & b.s. walks, and in this case if they water down the field for the almighty dollar-what a shame. Why fool around with something that is working?

    Re: Mike DeCourcy

    Hate the idea of expanding the tournament. To me 64 is already too large. I only want to see the best teams playing.

    Why fix what ain't broken.

    To further translate what he meant about Mac:

    He is the best coach we can afford to hire right now. No way we could fire him and find someone better in our price range.

    Atta boy! Way to set that bar really high for our program!




    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.
