    Give him 1 more year....

    Give McDermott one more year and than if he fails to have a winning season and some kind of post season play than fire not only him but Pollard too. He is betting his future with McDermott as far as I can see. I was at Johnny Orr's first game at the Hilton and trust me you don't want to go back to 6,000 in attendance. Orr created a game that was exciting and fun to watch and he did it with a mix of average and good talent. This coach had more in place to success than Orr did when he got here. Orr's first center could barely run down the court and get there before the play was over. He never tolerated less than 100% and never accepted players quitting. This coach will never out coach others in the Big 12. Orr was up against what I considered a better group of coaches and better talent in his tenure and got the job done. I can barely stand to even turn on the TV to watch this brand of play. At least with Floyd you would get excited watching defenses that would shut down explosive offenses and you knew that everyone on the team had a critical part to play. Not the mess is on the court now. It is not the players, but the lack of Big 12 level of coaching. I can't remember the last time I watched ISU change tactics to take the other team out of their game. Record nights for the other teams guards will not change under McDermott. Kansas State had a bad night shooting the ball. It wasn't us doing anything different. Shortening up a game by holding the ball won't work if you are just trading baskets.

    The House that Orr built is shaking at it's foundation.

    Why would you fire pollard? Give me a compelling reason other than MBB is down right now.

    You guys are rough on the newbies.

    How does someone have 6 million credits with 1 post?

    Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

    I wouldn't exactly call him a newb. He's been a member since Jan 2009.

    I haven't posted before because of shark infested waters. Lost a couple of toes on this one. I am amazed by ones who attack and attack. They must be fans of MSNBC.

    first center?
    Utoff or Falenchek

    Assuming it's not Hill...Sam could run,
    just had a lot of drag from the ears.

    Re: Give him 1 more year....

    Razzing someone for too few posts seems a bit off to me. On the other hand there are a number of people that I wish posted much, much less.

    Post 2 busts on liberals and has this thread moving to the cave soon enough. Wow, this guy is good for lurking around here for over a year.


    Cyclone
    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    Re: Give him 1 more year....

    really people..? the guy has his opinion let him state it.. no need to bash.. the goal of this site is to get more people on CF and to get them to post.. bashing a first time poster is not going to help any..


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Okay stop it, you sound like Pollard did with the email that essentially said that only season ticket holders have a right to an opinion on the state of Iowa State basketball. I enjoyed the post, thank you.

    Greg has one more year. And that may be it if we win 12 next year.
