Urb to USC......porn, gangs, cocaine, barges hitting blue whales, swimming pools, movie stars, Justin Timberlake, Heisman trophies, OJ Simpson, B-list television stars and Bradley Whitford, D-list reality/gameshow stars, Kardashians, earthquakes, and the airport is really close to the campus.

OJ may be enough to scare me away.

I just watched Urban Meyer basically beg for Athletic Directors to steal CMC from us. I’m not surprised his ethics are questionable. But can’t we get thru the season without this kind of talk from national sports coverage! Urban you have no loyalties, don’t wish that on others. How about a couple hours at least — after our biggest victory in decades. Cmon now!
I think statements like Meyers are counterproductive. It seems like when CMC is told how hard it is to win at ISU it just increases his will to prove people wrong.

Urban has long said that Texas has underachieved and I’m guessing that’s what he was getting at today. He probably should have left it at that. I don’t think Campbell is the kind of guy to leave ISU for a conference rival though. He’s a Great Lakes region guy and lol @ anyone who thinks he’s going to Nebraska. He’d do better than Frost but he isn’t going there.

Sure, USC has most of that stuff but the airport is nowhere near campus and Justin Timberlake spends an awful lot of his time in Montana.

Yes Gameday will be glorious. Like a cigar on Omaha Beach I suspect. Well...close anyway. And good TV to boot. Herb will be a good sport I’m sure.

Look forward to the Bear setting everybody straight again tomorrow on GameDay-- "Iowa State will win the Big12 and Matt Campbell isn't going anywhere. He's got it going in Ames."

Nebraska (in their eyes) needs someone who's going to get them to 11-1 and 12-0 type of stratosphere and nobody will be able to do that.

Duh!
One of the key reasons CMC should stay was on full display today. He has proven he can win at ISU; while Texas is approaching 10 years of trying to be “back”. Same at Michigan, Nebraska, FSU, etc.. There is more parity than ever, but expectations for these schools are still based on history; a advantageous past that’s not coming back. The result, unrealistic expectations and a revolving door of coaches. Think about how all those programs were built, coaching consistency with the right coach at the right time and commitment from the school.

CMC...should be ISU’s Snyder, Beamer, Fry/Ferentz, Bowden, etc..

Honestly, if money isn't an issue, what possible open job would be a better spot than ISU for Campbell right now? The guy just punched his ticket for THE all time great at ISU. Even if he does leave soon, he's going to be invited back in 30 years to commemorate this season. We've done just as much for coaches who never accomplished what CMC has done. Why not stick it out and see where the ride takes you?

They are truly idiots for chasing away Mack Brown, a hall of fame coach who took them to two national title games and won 1 title.
Could be wrong but he seems like a decent enough guy and I think he could really see how spoiled his players were at the end of his time there.

He's done a nice job at UNC.
