    McDermott to Creighton?

    This is wild speculation, but it's not totally crazy to see McDermott taking the vacancy at Creighton now that Altman is going to Oregon. Mac knows the Missouri Valley like the back of his hand, he's won the conference more than once, he's a perfect citizen when it comes to coaches, and might want to get out of Dodge before he's pushed out. Creighton could do a lot worse.

    Then Nurse, who just signed a contract with ISU, could get promoted to the head coaching position with a short contract and basically an opportunity to show he can or can't do the job.

    You got one thing right.....it certainly is wild speculation.

    Re: McDermott to Creighton?

    I thought about this initially but Greg is likely seen as damaged goods at this point. I doubt Creighton would have much interest. If this were 2 years ago or even last year, I think it could be possible.

    Re: McDermott to Creighton?

    I was wondering how long it was going to take for this to be brought up.

    Re: McDermott to Creighton?

    I saw your heading........then clicked to only find it is "wild speculation". Speaking of emotional rollercoasters.

    Re: McDermott to Creighton?

    I would think Creighton would take him in a heartbeat. But seriously explain the logic why McDermott would want to do that?? Walk away from that much guaranteed money.

    Re: McDermott to Creighton?

    Well with the job he's done here at ISU. You would have to think Creighton would be a step up!

    Re: McDermott to Creighton?

    How long until Altman decides Oregon isn't for him and wants his old job back?

    Re: McDermott to Creighton?

    I know that this would never happen. But for those of you who want this to happen. Who would you want as the next basketball coach?

    Less stress? May miss the lesser stress and the different recruiting environment of the lower level?

    But yeah, id agree, less than 1% chance this would happen, this late in the game.

    Re: McDermott to Creighton?

    I don't think Greg wants to leave a job half done. He will continue to work hard to turn around things in Ames.

    Seems to do it at *best* half done every season so far.

    He's halfway to having the program back to the shape it was in when he took the job.
