    If Servais ever leaves, I think we can safely predict, based on this hire, who our next baseball coach will be.

    John Sanders.


    ... and in so stealing him, there sure as hell better not be any big buyout of his Iowa State contract involved. If anything, they should be paying us to save them the trouble of actually going through next season before they fired him, which was all but assured of happening.

    Tonight is the best night in several years for every single Iowa State fan on Earth.

    A head-scratchingly, mind-numbingly STUPID decision that will make the hiring of Rick Johnson look like a stroke of genius . . .

    Here's what we just did:

    We just drafted Ryan Leaf.

    We just gave Alphonso Soriano a new contract.

    We just designed New Coke.

    We just thought up credit default swaps.

    We just gave the Marriage Ref a one-hour time slot.

    A home run, Travis? This isn't even a fielder's choice.

    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Don't necessarily agree with all the sentiment, but that is funny.

    Re: from the creighton message board

    And I continue to ask myself why? What did Creighton see in this guy? 1 title with four years starters at UNI in the MVC. 10 years, 1 title, no tournament titles, no wins in the NCAA tournament. Worth 800k and 10 yrs. 9 mill? HAHAHAHAHAHA

    This hire baffled me too, but I just realized that Creighton had success with the last guy (Altman) they hired away from the Big 8/Big 12. He wasn't wildly successful at Kansas State (68-54).

    But he did have more wins than losses, and didn't he make the tournament?

    I'm blown away that they would even have considered this move, but it should work out well for us.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    he will build it the right way...come on man.


    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs

    68-54 is wildly successful compared to gmac's big 12 run...

    Re: from the creighton message board

    I just wish him well. Looking to the future for a fresh attitude and lots W's! This is trivial I know, but I hope the next coach doesn't need to stand near the bench and yell to players indicating where they need to be positioned all game. I always thought this trait would go away, as if the kids didn't know where to go and when, but it never did. Again, I know this is trivial but hey we are all throwing out what we want.

    Get some studs in here and let them play some intelligent and fast paced team B-ball.

    He has been the number 1 guy to replace Altman going back to his days at UNI. The AD really thinks a lot of him and his coaching abality.

    Let me first wish GMac great success at everything he does at Creighton, except stealing recruits from ISU or winning games vs ISU.

    Having said that..

    WHooHooo the witch is dead! Welcome back Hilton Magic!

    The current UNI squad that just went to the Sweet 16 is almost entirely Greg McD's team. He coached them, he recruited them and they went on to a lot of success because of him.

    Much like Brad Stevens and Likliter.

    Is Jacobson a good coach? Absolutely. Better than McD? Maybe. But to diminish McD's impact on the current UNI's success is just venom.

    That is the guy Creighton hired. And he'll likely be very successful there.
