    His son is a great player and is the only reason his dad looks good as a coach right now.

    No. All that is happening at Creighton is that GMac is proving he is a competent MVC coach, and his son is an excellent MVC player. Nothing more. GMac showed that same thing at UNI. Of course he had a pretty good assistant at UNI.....what was his name again? Ben something?

    Let's see how Creighton does in the tourney when it faces a Big 10 or ACC team, or any team from a major conference that has a pulse. Also, let's see how GMac does once his son is in the NBA.

    He didn't get it done at ISU. Period.

    Greg quickly was turning our program into a college basketball black hole. Hell no. He's doing well for himself at Creighton. More power to him. Not sure what the problem was here, but it clearly wasn't working out for him in the B12.

    He may just be one of those guys that fits in better with a mid-major team/conference.

    McDermott was just flat out bad here, 2-4 wins in the Big 12 a season wasn't cutting it. No signs of improvement in his fourth year either, things worked out great for both ISU and McDermott in the end with him going to Creighton and Fred coming in here.

    Grant Gibb is the glue that makes things work at CU. Grant sets up Doug most of the time.
    It will be interesting how CU is doing in three years. Right now, they have it going on.
