    Signature Moral Victory

    Since it has been discussed at great length McDermott's lack of a signature win in the 4 years as head coach, I was wondering what may be his best signature moral victory? I'm afraid this list is somewhat short as well. The game that comes to mind for me was year 1 at Ohio State. What are your thoughts?

    OT against top 3 OU team last year?


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    This thread is the poster child for how far ISU basketball has fallen.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    These must be desparate times because people are talking about signature moral victories? I mean moral victories only really mean something in year 1...not 4....We haven't been to the post season since Wayne's second to last season...its all been downhill since Wayne left....if anyone can name one better thing that came out of the firing of WM and hiring of GM....

    Well since it is your first post, I cannot believe you are serious. Are you really someone else who created a new moniker just to post this?????

    Why is there always this post? Can't you just play along? Clearly the thread is tongue-in-cheek.

    Signature Moral Victory

    FREAKING HILARIOUS

    Did Pudue go to the NCAA tournament the year we beat them in Vegas?

    Re: Signature Moral Victory

    There is not now, nor will there ever be such a thing as a moral victory. Very clever way to get credits though, well played.

    Re: Signature Moral Victory

    I like this thread, and it can manage to see it was done in jest (which apparently many cannot). I would agree that OT with Oklahoma would be our best moral victory. What a sad program this has been lately...
