    Creighton, a better job than Iowa State? Historically, no. At the moment, yes.
    He's not wrong.

    He doesn't make one compelling point in that entire piece. You're an MVC school playing in a massive concert arena with no history aside from Kyle Korver. We are a Big 12 school playing in a storied arena with a history of basketball success.

    It's a better job now...because McD ran this one into the ground.

    No he's not, except the part where he left out that 4 years of Mac is what caused that statement to be true.

    Re: Sipple: Creighton job better than ISU

    If Creighton is a better job than ISU, its only because of the coach that they just hired. GMAC and the way the program was run the past 4 years brought the program to its knees. For Sipple's sake...I hope that he doesn't do the same for Creighton.

    Creighton also has a history of basketball success.

    Hilton >>> better than Creighton's place though.

    Re: Sipple: Creighton job better than ISU

    They'll pay him more because they don't have a football team, and all the bandwagon Husker fans cheer for them. They play in a huge municipal arena.

    All this is is Nebraska journalists trying to sell folks on a hire that looks like damaged goods.

    Re: Sipple: Creighton job better than ISU

    Garbage

    He says that Creighton has a better roster currently for next season than ISU does. That is true! But how does that equal Creighton being a better job?

    I guess Butler is a better job than Florida in basketball too because they currently have a better squad for next year?
