How Long Did it Take Mac to Win?
Unless my Cyclone history is wrong- Mac didn't take Waldens talent & win right away. Why would we expect Chizek to take Mac's bad talent & win right away.
For you to say that ISU's talent isn't bad- what universe are you living on? Isn't this "decent talent" also responsible for going 1-7 in Big 12 play last year? Football isn't about having 5-6 "decent" players. If that was the case every school would be .500.
I'll make excuses for GC all day long during his first 2-3 years. He needs to be given a chance to recruit and develop his type of players.
Fans need to be realistic: 2-3 Big 12 wins would be a success in 2008, 3-4 Big 12 wins would be great for 2009.
BTW- what was Dan McCarney Big 12 record in his first 4 seasons?
