    It's not that good.

    This will be a nice restart for both GMac and ISU.

    More like, get out before you're thrown out.

    Tis better to leave on your own terms, than be fired.

    Exactly. If he would have failed next year and gotten fired, his career would've been in shambles. Now he has a fresh start and a chance to resurrect himself. This is really an amazing opportunity for both parties.

    Big difference: GMac is a "very nice guy"...for whatever that is worth in college coaching!

    Steve Alford >>>>> Greg McDermott - at least Alford had SOME success at Iowa before he jumped ship...
