    Point and Laugh

    That's all I can do - is just point at ISU MBB and laugh.

    Many get what we wanted - but the only way the timing could be worse is if he had done this the day before the season opener.

    Do I blame him? No.
    Am I sad to see him go? No.
    Do I think he's still a good coach? Yes. (just didn't even remotely work here)

    So now what we will soon be left with is bare bones. I expect TJ to go with him from what I can tell. I'd assume that will start a domino effect with players. And I would not blame them one bit either.

    It's ironic that in the last 18 months, we've had 2 losing coaches go on to get other jobs on their own accord - with those employers seeking them out. It's really quite amusing. But hey, we'll get $800k from Creighton out of this deal...so that doesn't suck.

    The short-term aftermath of this is going to be ugly. Completely ugly. Like Rosie O'Donnell ugly. The long-term is up in the air. Safe to say that if the new MBB coach and/or Rhoads do not pan out - Mr. Pollard will be "hired away" by a new school too.

    Actually, wouldn't that be just as good/bad, as we would have the players?

    Re: Point and Laugh

    I am pointing and laughing at Creighton all day long as now Ben Jacobsen will get to beat up on GMAC twice a year. AND, just like Chiz, we get a big check when we would have to cut one a year later. Let's hope this works out like football.

    Re: Point and Laugh

    I believed that if GMac had stayed, he would not have lasted the season next year anyway. It's not all bad to bottom out for Iowa State. It would mean open slots for a new coach to fill with players, and playing time. And PT is what players want. So is it a bad time? Yes and no. It's the best for the program for it to happen, so better now than later.
