    Are you satisfied with McD leaving?

    I see two main thoughts on McD leaving for Creighton.

    The group that is happy that ISU basketball will be getting a face lift. The fact that we save 2.5 mil on a buy out and we are getting 800k.

    The other group are the ones that somehow believe McD owed us something? Owed ISU something? The group that attempts to compare McD to Chizik (not even close). The group that complains about how bad McD coached, how he had no player retention and now he leaves (just like all his players).'


    So my question is this. Are you satisfied with McD doing us (and really himself) a favor by leaving for more money, or are you upset because he didn't leave in the most honorable of ways?

    I have a feeling most of you are just happy he is gone, if that's the case, lets just move on.

    Yep. I think it is funny that some of the same people that were the most vocal about wanting him gone are the people who are complaining about his lack of loyality, comparing him to Chiz, ect.

    I am satisfied and ready to move in a different direction. This is best for both ISU and McD. I wish him well at CU.

    Overjoyed.

    Also getting a laugh over Gms "integrity." Yep, he has such great integrity that he hired two new assistant coaches, landed two recruits, and left for a new job all in the same week.

    Is the pope Catholic?

    This could not have worked out better for us. I really wanted the man to succeed but it just was not happening for him.

    We are getting paid to take him off of the payroll!! I still feel like I'm dreaming!

    I am with Deace, the biggest waste of money our program has ever seen. If he couldnt win with Brackins, Gilstrap, and Lucca on the floor, he will NEVER win.

    Thrilled with the turn of events. Just hate to see a Cyclone legend like Grayer get the shaft though. Just adds to the ill-will I feel for GMAC.

    next year will be tough, but if we can push through it, I think brighter days will be ahead.

    Or i am just blindly optimistic

    Re: Are you satisfied with McD leaving?

    Lets face it, McDermott was going to be gone after this year anyway. Good for him to get another head coaching position. He has been nothing but a gentleman and I wish him well at Creighton.

    Now lets hope Iowa State can retain some players and bring in a new coach right away.
