    To those that think...

    chat boards like this don't matter, think again. How many times have you heard people say, 'quit complaining, it won't matter, just support our team'? I've never thought those that were critical didn't love ISU, but were only 'complaining' because we new we could do better.

    I have to believe forums like those found here on CF had a big impact on McD feeling like the end was near. Thanks to those who kept the pressure on. Iowa State basketball has hope once more.

    Oh, happy day!!!!

    Does that mean that we can take credit for saving ISU basketball?

    No, let's give all the credit to JP. We'll heap it on him anyway if he can bring in the right guy the second time around.

    I guarantee this board had roughly 0 to do with his decision. He had about 9,000,000 reasons to leave.

    IS this similar to the 20 million reasons TO had for not trying to allegedly kill himself?

    I just hope we get improvement, you seem sure, wish i was..
    It may get worse before it improves.... timing sucks.

    I just hope all those people that said they wouldn't buy tickets, call up the ticket office and buy them now (otherwise, that was just talk)

    Re: To those that think...

    Mac, like most other coaches, is smart enough to not let message boards influence his decision-making

    Have to agree here. He went from a guy who had a season left, a $2 million+ buyout and a soiled resume to a guy with a gig for thenext decade worth $9 million.

    The ship was sinking around him, and Creighton sent a single occupancy lifeboat.



    Greg gets to walk away, we get to start the next era sooner than expected and JP gets another merciful mulligan with a shot at another first rate redemption (see: CPR). That's a rare win-win-win. Be happy for all involved and let's move on.

    You really think coaches read message boards? Good god you have no idea how college coaches work.

    Re: To those that think...

    Whoaaaa 6785... before you get too high on your inside view of the coaching mind, re read the post. Never said McD reads this board. If he did have enough time to do so, maybe that's why he was doing so well in Ames.

    But, if you think that McD never heard comments from this board or other venues you're kidding yourself. And if you think he could not care less about them, then you don't understand why he's at Creighton right know.

    So, you're saying that Creighton's higher ups read this and realized it was time to give Mac an offer he couldn't refuse? That makes sense. I love how people that ***** all the time find ways to say that they're the reason good things happen...


    In Fred, we trust!! Go Cyclones!

    Tommy: Let's think about this for a sec, Ted. Why would somebody put a guarantee on a box? Hmmm, very interesting

    Here's the way I see it, Ted. Guy puts a fancy guarantee on a box 'cause he wants you to feel all warm and toasty inside.

    Ted Nelson: Yeah, makes a man feel good.

    Tommy: 'Course it does. Why shouldn't it? Ya figure you put that little box under your pillow at night, the Guarantee Fairy might come by and leave a quarter, am I right, Ted?

    The point is, how do you know the fairy isn't a crazy glue sniffer? "Building model airplanes" says the little fairy; well, we're not buying it. He sneaks into your house once, that's all it takes. The next thing you know, there's money missing off the dresser, and your daughter's knocked up. I seen it a hundred times.

    Ted Nelson: But why do they put a guarantee on the box?

    Tommy: Because they know all they sold ya was a guaranteed piece of ****. That's all it is, isn't it? Hey, if you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it guaranteed, I will. I got spare time. But for now, for your customer's sake, for your daughter's sake, ya might wanna think about buying a quality product from me.



    Thanks for the guarantee Becki!

    I love how people take posts and twist them into something they are not just to make themselves look*****.
