    Someone must be writing a "McDermott on the hot seat" article. I really hope he isn't.

    No it wasn't like that at all. Really, just good conversation.

    Did you find it a little odd that he had no idea Chris? SHouldn't he have had an idea there? Maybe not on all three but at least 1 or 2?


    It's all snark from here on out

    I think McD is questioning himself and whether he can turn it around. This might sound crazy, but I think he might step down.

    Re: McDermott: 2-8 presser transcript

    I watched it on cyclones.com and he brings up some really good points. I am as frustrated as the next person with the current state of ISU basketball but he points out a lot very real, very true stuff about the beginning of his tenure here. He states that they basically started with the death penalty and this is true. As frustrated and sometimes angry as I am with MBB he is going to get another year and I really hope he can start to pull us out of this tailspin. I would gladly take back everything negative I have said about this staff and be overjoyed with some success. I think Mac is a great human being, I think he knows how to coach basketball and I would love for him to succeed at ISU. Lets go beat Mizzou on Wednesday night.

    I agree...I think he still has the confidence in himself, his staff and the play they have put in place. He is coming back next year...we might as well get used to the idea.

    "We have got to try to make it so that they are playing offense a little more often than they’d like."

    How do you do that? Turn the ball over a lot so they have more possessions than they can handle?

    I know what he meant, but it didn't quite come out right.


    "There are five real good recruits in the state. We got three of them. One couldn’t get into school, and the other went to (the University of) Iowa...which is about the same thing." - Coach Johnny Orr

    People keep saying this and it always makes me chuckle. Why do you think this? Is it because the incredibly ineffective offense that we run? Is it because of the out-of-bounds plays that we run that never produce anything? Is it because of the lack-luster pressure defense he has coached the guys up on? Is it because of him consistently bringing players into the program that not Big 12 caliber players? Or is it because of the fact that in his time here at ISU he really hasn't pulled off an upset? Maybe I'm mistaken but a guy that knows how to coach basketball wouldn't let all of those things happen.


    ...Straight going donkey...

    I'm in 100 percent agreement with you. However, the reality is his record isn't good at Iowa State.

    And there is an old sea captain's saying, "No one wants to hear about the storms you encountered. They just want to know did you bring the ship in?"

    GMac hasn't "brought the ship in" yet.
