    What will JP Say ?

    During the press conference if McDermott indeed is leaving.
    I guess it's similar to what he said during GC's situation:

    "We have an excellent coach in Greg McDermott, that's why we're proud that he's been actively wanted by another excellent basketball program"

    He'll blame the players.

    He might even blame the fans for not contributing. Then he would highlight that he has increased contributions.

    Re: What will JP Say ?

    I wonder if he even has a press conference. Just put out a statement saying a national coaching search is underway.

    Re: What will JP Say ?

    I know that no matter what he says about 70% of the site will think it was brilliant, and a separate handful will react as if he screwed their wife, shot their dog, and burned their house down.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: What will JP Say ?

    We will probably find out that JP was writing up a contract extension for Greg before he decided to leave.

    Re: What will JP Say ?

    I don't expect this to be anywhere near the CHizik one. I think this will be pretty simple and reserved. There has to be some relief for him in this.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Re: What will JP Say ?

    I think he needs to save a little face and say this was the best case scenario for EVERYONE involved.

    Re: What will JP Say ?

    I'm still behind the conspiracy theory that JP was playing "used car salesman" in this process - he was behind McDermott 100% just like a used car salesman is 100% behind the quality of a lemon...

    He will say "Coach McDermott took an opportunity that he felt fit him personally and his family better. He hopes Iowa State the best in the future. We will start a coaching search immediately.
    Thank You and have a nice day."

    Re: What will JP Say ?

    He'll say..."You know, we were probably going to fire Coach anyway if he didn't win more games next season. We wish Greg luck on his new job, and we'll look to hire a quality coach in the coming weeks."
