    Is this true?

    To those "in the know about our athletic dept.", I heard that one of our biggest donors to the athletic department has cut his funding in half until McD is gone. Is this true??

    IF that were the case I would imagine the donor would just pony up however much JP would ask for towards the buyout and it would be done.

    This is not true. In fact, I increased my donation this year.

    And, yet another unsubstantiated rumor... I bet that if we win some games at the beginning of the season the donor would be back in the fold.

    You are one of our biggest donors?

    Money poorly spent, my friend...there is no reason to reward failure.

    Better said would be if we win some games at the END of the year he'll be in the fold. My guess? Next year will be a disaster for all the obvious reasons. Recruits know Mac is a lame duck and they will hold off or opt for another College. Not good folks.... not good. IB

    Re: Is this true?

    I was just asking, isn't that what the forum is for? I'm far from in the know, so I figured someone here would know. I hope it's not.

    I thought the same thing...we are supposed to win the games (even next year) at the beginning of the season with the 'tin can' scheduling we have tended to use in recent times.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    If I had to bet I wouldn't be surprised. I don't think it is about the money with McD. I actually think JP refuses to make a move, either he still thinks McD can somehow magically turn it around, or he refuses to admit that he makes mistakes too. And big ones at that.

    If a move does indeed need to be made next year, this rumor, if true, just gives more support to the school of thought that two replacements need to be made.

    Not all of us are fair weathered fans. In fact, Iowa State needs the money more now than ever.

    Failure!? We are not at failure, mediocre yes. A .500 record is like a C, C's get degrees and you are also just as close to A as an F. I am not happy, just saying it is also not failure. I would say since we were just under .500 we could knock it to a C-. Enough academic analogies?

    Sorry, but expectations of .500 for 4 years are not average in my book. The last four years have been nothing short of a failure. Teams don't aim for .500 to get by. I vote this the worst post of the day! All in favor???
