    If it is not the buyout, what is taking so long??

    If it is not negotiating the buyout, what is taking so long to make the announcement?

    GMac wanting to take Nurse with him?

    Any other thoughts?

    I dunno...maybe he hasn't accepted it yet? Seems like a logical conclusion.

    Dana Altman heard that Gmac was to carry on in his place at Creighton, replied with a hearty "hell no", and is negotiating his return to Omaha?

    Whatever it is, no way it goes past today without something concrete.

    IMO he would want to take Nurse and Otzelberger.

    Its a life altering move. Plus you have to have some sort of contract with Creighton and have to settle with ISU. These things take time and you have lawyers and agents involved it may take a bit.

    Dana Altman is still officially their coach I believe. He is still listed as head coach on their website, and I have not seen a formal announcement from Creighton saying he has left. My guess is until that becomes official, you wont see anything about McDermott taking the job there...

    A Creighton blue blood has told me that word is GMac has not made a decision yet. Not sure if he is in the know or not but his family has been long time low level boosters. the classic Huskers fans in the fall and Blue Jay fans in the winter.

    Did you hear somewhere that it is not the buyout holding things up?

    Oregon has not officially announced Altman has taken the job.

    Also Paul Clark said on the radio that ISU & Creighton are still having a staring contest over the 800K buyout.

    Per the Des Moines Register, McDermott is undecided as of noon today.

    He better accept the job at Creighton. Look at the excitement his departure has created in the fan base.... It is the most excitement for men's basketball in 4 years.

    How is this freaking possible? Is he so out of touch he doesn't understand the backlash from his return?
