    Who else feels McDermott owes Cyclone fans an explanation?

    I think McDermott needs to come out and discuss the current issues with Cyclone program, he owes that to the fans of ISU basketball. I believe a press conference needs to be held to discuss all things ISU basketball.

    He recently said something along the lines of- "I don't care what fans think. The administration is behind me. So, it's all good"

    Re: Who else feels McDermott owes Cyclone fans an explanation?

    Terrible idea in my opinion. He'll get bashed no matter what he says. Makes him look desperate. I don't think there is a win for him or the program if he does that. A few fans would appreciate it, some will still be ******, some will hate him no matter what. I'd like to see how this would benefit the program, convince me how this course of action is good for everyone.

    This would make an already terrible recruiting situation even worse.

    But he's already done it once, as in his presser after Johnson left. Holding that, and explaining how he went down to Texas and begged WJ to come back, was very demeaning.

    Re: Who else feels McDermott owes Cyclone fans an explanation?

    JP is the one who owes the fans an explanation because he is the one running the AD which sets the prices on tix, etc. He came out with a statement recently aimed at steadying the negative tone around here.....thats all there needs to be done, at least publicly. Does that really change much? Not really, we're all still ****** at the performance on the court. There's nothing that can be said right now to change anything. Greg and the team have to start winning, and next year. Positive changes on the scoreboard is the only way.

    Re: Who else feels McDermott owes Cyclone fans an explanation?

    I'll repeat my post from another thread. What do you think McD will say? I guarantee that it will be some "spin" that makes certain fans feel better for a period of time, but doesn't actually accomplish anything.

    I still remember the day that McD gave the press conference regarding Wes J leaving the program. Prior to the press conference, fans on here were livid, and some were calling for McD's head. Then McD goes out, gives a rah, rah speech, and all of a sudden a lot of fans are back on board with him. I have never understood this, but some people are very easily influenced.

    If he were to give another speech today, I'm sure it would be the same result. McD is a master at this talent, and if I were him I would do the exact same thing if it meant keeping the wolves at bay for awhile longer. But no matter what he says, it won't change the fact that our basketball program, four years into his regime, is absolutely horrid.

    He's got one more year to show some results.

    All the bellyaching around here isn't going to change that. So let it go, already. Please.


    I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.

    Anything he says will just acknowledge that we have tremendous problems. If he has any chance of succeeding here, why would he want to point recruits to all of our problems? Makes no sense. He needs to be as positive as possible, coach to the best of his ability and hope it works out next year.

    I mean watching Hamilton last night and ESPN and the NY Times spreading the Wesley Johnson situation around like they did, did nothing for recruiting statewide or countrywide. Hearing from McDermott could possibly clear some doubt for recruits on the underlying issues with the program.

    I am worried about recruits think right now, this could clear some air.
