    Only if I can guarantee I can bring in a better coach.

    17-48 in conference play over the last four seasons? Yes please, get rid of the guy. Nobody has been worse since Ken Trickey who had about the same conference win percentage as McDermott and that was over 35 years ago.

    To me, it is a fairness issue. We fired Morgan after he had much better seasons. And we have fired better coaches in other sports.

    Re: Would you get rid of McDermott?

    If I had the money to dispose of him, he'd be gone. The only thing he could do to make things worse is literally lose every single game. Maybe **** on the front step of the Knoll, too. But that's about it.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    McDermott has a 25% win pct in the Big 12 (it's about 23%-24% if you count his UNI days)...how many coaches do you think can do much worse than that? Honestly

    Re: Would you get rid of McDermott?

    If money was not a consideration, then yes, I would fire him at season's end. Due to budget constraints, I give him at least a couple more years. Just don't think the athletic dept. can afford a quality replacement AND the buy out.

    I was a big fan of the McDermott hire and thought he would be a great, long term Coach at Iowa State. This season has pretty much done away with nearly all of that. McDermott has simply failed in all aspects. Stability is as bad as it has been under any staff (each season ends with the departure of several players, this year likely to be no exception). Recruiting has been below average, including a LOT of reaches that just didn't make sense. And what I thought was a huge strength, game day Coaching, has left me less than impressed.

    Can't get much worse. So we fall from 11th to 12th?? What's the difference?
