    What's Gary Thompson saying......

    about the latest exodus from our beloved university?

    I wonder if he might be thinking of his famous broadcast saying -- "Stop the bleeding!!".

    Anybody hear Gary comment on the reason why so players are leaving the program?

    He is probably delighted that practices are being conducted with "discipline"

    I have spoken to other GIANTS in the ISU program and they are NOT happy with the status of the entire program!

    So are they going to do something or sit idly on their hands like they have apparently been doing?

    Re: What's Gary Thompson saying......

    Without reading all the posts in the thread, I would bet that Gary Thompson is saying, "Greg, if you don't put a winning team on the court next year, I can't help you out any more."

    At least, that's what I would be saying.

    So what is the magic number for worthless or irrelevant posts? Maybe next time, comments could bring something logical or sensible to the table instead of calling people out....

    Now to the OP - I would really love to sit and talk w/Gary Thompson for 30 minutes just to get his assesment of the whole situation & 'state of the program.' I understand he's a legendary local boy but I would be curious to really see what his perspective is.

    Also be curious to know how many times he and Greg have played golf together, as I'm quite certain that could tend to skew his opinion of the man a little.

    When saying something like "I have spoken to other giants" without naming who they are, you are asking people to trust you. When it is your first overall post, there is no trust there, so it is perfectly reasonable to point out that the person shouldn't be trusted because they have no history here.

    If you are going to "pop up" and bring info to the table like you are a big shot on a 1st post, you'd better bring some background on why you know what you do or you can expect to be the target of snide remarks.

    Guy is a troll IMO.

    In before I get called a troll in return

    Same here. I have a lot of respect for that man and value his opinion.

    And to be fair to Greg Mcdermott, I do think he deserves another year or two to prove himself with all the balony he's had to go through.

    He can't even get his own team on board.
