    Not meant to be...

    Does anyone have the feeling that McD and ISU are not meant to be? I do not think he is a bad coach and I do not think we have bad players, but over these past 4 years, things have not gelled & it just hasn't "felt right." McD had success at UNI and I wouldn't be surprised if he has great success somewhere else. I just don't see it happening at ISU.

    Re: Not meant to be...

    I had a bad feeling when he was hired, was against his hire, but still gave him a chance since you know, i'm a fan of ISU and had to get behind him. Unfortunately in my mind, I was right about him. I do think he could have success at other places, but it's not happening at ISU and I have little confidence it will ever happen with him. He is 16-42 in Big 12 play counting the Big 12 Tournaments. Thanks for all your hard work GMac, but I won't be continuing to buy into you and ISU together as one product ever unless a miracle happens. Please take your 28.5% big 12 win percentage elsewhere. Thanks
