    GMac: ISU AND UNI Combined

    I thought it would be interesting to look at GMac's record not only at ISU, but also at UNI and combined it possibly with that at ISU. Specifically I was looking at his record, especially at UNI, against teams who ended the season with a winning record and also his record versus all the conferences. Here's what I came up with.

    Against Winning Opponents
    @UNI, Record vs. opponents who ended the season w/winning record: 35 - 47 (42.7% win pct)
    @ISU, Record vs. opponents who ended the season w/winning record: 18-55 (24.7% win pct)
    Combined Record versus opponents who ended the season w/winning record: 53 - 102 (34.2% win pct)

    Against Conference Opponents

    @UNI, Record vs. conference opponents who ended w/winning record: 21-31(40% win pct)
    @ISU,
    Record vs. conference opponents who ended w/winning record: 9-40 (18% win pct)
    Combined Record vs. conference opponents who ended w/winning record: 30-71 (29.7% win pct)

    @UNI, Record vs. conference opponents who ended w/losing record: 31-14(68.9% win pct)
    @ISU,
    Record vs. conference opponents who ended w/losing record: 6-3 (66.7% win pct)
    Combined Record vs. conference opponents who ended w/losing record: 37-17 (68.5% win pct)

    Against .500 Opponents
    @UNI, Record vs. opponents who ended the season w/.500 record: 4-0 (100% win pct)
    @ISU, Record vs. opponents who ended the season w/.500 record: 4-1 (80% win pct)
    Combined Record vs. opponents who ended the season w/.500 record: 8-1 (88.9% win pct)

    Against .500 or Better Opponents

    Combined Record vs. opponents who ended the season w/.500 record or better: 51-103 (33.1% win pct)


    Against Types of Conferences
    Record against Major Conference opponents (Big 12, Big 10, Pac 10, ACC, SEC, Big East): 27-63 (30% win pct)

    Record against Mid Major Conference opponents (A10, Big West, CAA, C-USA, Horizon, MAAC, MAC, Missouri Valley, Mountain West, Ohio Valley, WCC, WAC): 80-58 (58% win pct).....24-6 excluding the Missouri Valley (80% win pct)

    Record against Low Conference opponents (Big Sky, Great West, NEC, Independent, Southland, etc): 31-4 (88.6% win pct)



    Game Statistics
    @ISU, double digit wins: 31
    @ISU, double digit losses: 36
    @UNI: double digit wins: 45
    @UNI, double digit losses: 23

    Combined, double digit wins: 76
    Combined, double digit losses: 59

    @ISU, Average game score: 66.1 - 66.4 in favor of opponent
    @UNI, Average game score: 68.7 - 65.8 in favor of UNI
    Combined average game score: 67.6 - 66.0 in favor of GMac coached team

    In short, GMac has a 30% win percentage against major conference opponents while his win percentage is 64% against mid majors and low majors since 2001. His first NCAA Tournament appearance was also because UNI won 8 straight to close the season, while a few years later, they lost 5 of their last 7 but still made the tournament after recording a few quality wins earlier in the season


    70% of GMac's conference losses at UNI were to teams with a winning record while 70% of his conference wins at UNI were to teams with a losing record.




    FWIW

    Kind of mind numbing. Looks like he should get a gig in the Horizon league and clean up.



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

    Re: GMac: ISU AND UNI Combined

    How much of that record was when he was building UNI? I think when he got to UNI the team was bad and it took a few years to get them pointed in the right direction. If you take out say the first 3 years at UNI does it make a difference? I don't know - just asking the question.

    How many of the UNI players that are playing key roles at UNI this year were GMac's recruits that he told to honor their commitment to UNI when he came to ISU? Just wondering...

    Do you think UNI would be doing as well as they are with McDermott coaching them? No way to know for sure, but I personally don't think so. My opinion is that it doesn't matter how well McDermott recruits, we will be average to below average with him as our coach.

    It is the body of work. One wants to pick and choose......one can justify almost anything.

    The MVC the last 2 years has been very weak - I think only 1 NCAA bid each year. Ben J. has been cleaning up during a time when UNI has experienced players and a good team in a bad conference. Ben J. learned a lot from GMac and GMac has won at lower levels. I'm not sold on GMac but I think you have to look at the whole picture.

    So after Kirk's first few years you would have ignored the fact the team looked like it was getting better and fired him?

    Why are you on this board - go play in your own yard.

    Do you want me to draw you a picture? And who said anything about being fired? You asked a question about marathon's stats....I responded.

    Re: GMac: ISU AND UNI Combined

    This is nothing earth shaking. Unless you're an elite team you normally lose a lot more to teams with winning records than losing records...am I missing a major point here???



    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.
