    Please make up your mind!

    To the posters who as recent as last week wanted Mac gone and are now complaining about the way he left, the timing, or the reasons he gave for leaving please take your medicine your schizophrenia is kicking in an it's confusing. To the posters who wanted him gone and are now taking shots at him please show some class. I think this move was good for both McD and ISU. I wish him and Doug nothing but the best and am confident he feels the same way towards ISU.

    This. Gmac didn't work out at this level, he realized that, we realized that and he got an opportunity of a lifetime with Creighton and did what was right for him and his family. I will always think Gmac is a class act all the way, he just for whatever reason could not connect with the athletes he recruited here.

    As for us, we got what we wanted and should be excited about how much fun coaching searches can be!

    Greg made a good long term choice for his family. OWH sportcaster says it is abetter job and is a promotion. It will all work out for the rest of the Family also. SportstalkMatt can relate.

    I'm happier than ever. He's gone, and he saved us between 2 and 3 million dollars. Kudos Greg, way to get lucky (again) JP. Hope you get the hire right this time.

    Re: Please make up your mind!

    I agree. Some guy on the radio yesterday called in and said he wanted him fired. However he was disappointed he quit. WHAT??? If we would have fired him it would have cost us 2.5 mill. If he quits we get 800k. Just quit complaining.

    One of the biggest culprits in this is KXNO pseudo-Cyclone Steve Deace, who spent the past month ripping ISU for not firing McDermott, then this morning suggested that McDermott was not "loyal" to ISU by leaving for Creighton.

    Who's complaining? I was dancing to Celebration yesterday morning, and I am sick.

    Re: Please make up your mind!

    I agree with the basic point of the OP.

    For ISU fans who saw no future w/ GM, it was a perfect accident considering the situation. And if I were GM, I would realize the only way to continue would be to achieve success next season at a level that was probably unrealistic, and under scrutiny of a divided fan base, but simply resigning would look defeatist. I don't blame him for taking an opening. I would've thought worse of him if he were just stubborn and refused to let it go.
