    Everyone who was wishing for Mac to be gone, you better support this team for the next 3 years.

    Don't worry...they won't

    Will be calling for the coaches head by the time the introductory press conference is over.

    When we are terrible next year, there will be people ragging on him, the players and JP. Its the reality of this message board.

    I wish it wasn't true.

    Yes, we will still be in for a bumpy ride for a little while. I'm not expecting a miracle turnaround.

    But it's like my knee. I could have taken some therapy, slowly healed, but never fully recovered. Or I could have painful surgery, go through painful rehabilitation, and more than likely recover completely in six months. Yes, I had the surgery.

    We will because now they have a chance to be successful. The storm clouds over Hilton are clearing and the sun is shining through for the first time in four long years. It is a great day to be a Cyclone!!!

    Re: Be Careful What You Wish For...

    I would much rather watch a 12-18 team next year with a new coach at the helm and a glimmer of hope for the future than seeing the same 14-16 team thrown out there by McD running his horrible offense and knowing that there is no hope for the future.


    ...Straight going donkey...

    Chances are we'll be supporting it more so than if Greg was still here.

    I know we're going to suck next year. I'll be interested in seeing if the new guy can improve between year 1 and 3. Greg never improved.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: Be Careful What You Wish For...

    Criticizing the coach and wishing he would be fired is not mutually exclusive with supporting Iowa State basketball. I didn't want Gregg to be the coach but I would have still rooted for the team to win next year if he had stayed.
