    Anyone else think JP

    has to make a statement really soon if we are keeping coach Mac? I would think that in terms of recruiting that telling everyone that he will be back for sure next year would be encouragement on the recruiting front. If he does not address the internet rumours I would assume that Mac is gone. Recruits would have to see some of this and hesitate to become Cyclones.
    I think something needs said if we are keeping Mac. Just my opinion.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    The season isn't over yet, although many people here gave up a LONG time ago. He won't make a statement until the season is over (nor should he).

    Re: Anyone else think JP

    Something needs to be said ASAP if GMac is going to be staying. If nothing comes out in the next day or so, it'll start to become pretty obvious of what's in the works.

    That's what i've been saying, if he's keeping his mouth shut, this raises a lot of eyebrows, makes you wonder if he's contacting people already.

    Agreed with Knownothing. This stuff is starting to pick up steam. I'm surprised nothing has been said yet.

    This is one of the main things I keep coming back to as well. GMac could very well be back next year, but maybe Pollard still isn't sure. What if we somehow get on a run and make the finals of the Big 12 tourney? (Not gonna happen but playing Devil's Advodate). I think Pollard MAY know what he's gonna do, but is letting the season play out to see how we finish/what players are bolting before going public.

    His silence is telling me if he had his druthers, he'd be gone, but too many things still at play before he can say one way or another.

    Re: Anyone else think JP

    Tom Osborn came out a few days and stood behind Sadler for at least another year...I'm not sure why people find it so strange that Pollard would expected to do the same for Mac if he was going to chose to keep him.

    Recruiting is one reason.

    He could at least come out with a quote saying Mac is our coach. I mean hell we have a top recruit for us tonight coming to watch the game. If the kid knows what the internet is he has to be concerned that the guy giving him his speach might not be at Iowa State next year.
    I would not doubt if Pollard is trying to see what Iowa is going to do. If Iowa fires Licklighter and we wait and fire Gmac. Iowa will get a jump on us in the coaching search. It's the same reason we hired Mac so fast last time. He tought Iowa wanted him as well.

    Re: Anyone else think JP

    I think he should say something to calm stuff down either way. Just say Mac is the coach and we have no plans to change anything. Who cares if it's true or not, the guys on this team deserve to be the focus.

    And yes, I know I've been part of the problem.

    Re: Anyone else think JP

    We either have them or we don't. Possibly changing coaches (per an internet rumor) and actually changing are completely different for the recruiting process
    The internet it true in the eye's of kids being recruited. If every fan says one thing the recruit might thing it's fact instead of a bunch of idiots opinions.

    theres probably a reason they havent said anything, if JP was for sure standing behind McDermott to keep him for next season, he probably would have said so by now, to get people behind the coach and program again

    how often does he check these message boards though? Maybe he hasn't figured out how much the story is growing.
