I just think that a coach, and staff, that paid attention to every detail, stressed fundementals, and had the ability to make adjustments could have won some of those program making wins that could have occurred along the way. Win those game would have made recruiting sooo much easier.

can someone kill: who ever took ISU anywhere thread?
I am getting sick of looking at it. Mac is gone, GC is now the coach. Will he lead the Clones to greatness? I have no idea, and neither does anyone else. The bottom line was Mac and his coaching staff were not getting it done, and JP saw that.
The fact that ISU has never been great is no reason to stop trying to be. Sure it won't be easy. If is was easy, college coaches would be make $45,000 a year instead of $1M +.
