Darts, honestly, I'm sick of hearing you ***** and moan about ISU football. After your first 3000 posts hating on Mac, I think you made it clear that you don't like him. Give it up.
You know, you may be right Cy, I guess I just would like a Mac supporter to give me the rationale as to why he is the best guy for the program, what is it that ANYONE can point to that says "yeah he is going to get the job done here," REAL REASONS, all I hear is budget, facilities, and the like. Those things can be remedied over time, but why, after all we have seen over twelve years, is he still the guy.
The Mac people have this bunker mentality. I mean is it because you have invested so much time in Dan, that you can't bring yourself to admit that he really might not be the guy to get it done??? Are you family members? What is the reason?
I keep thinking that if I got a fresh perspective, maybe that will change my way of thinking. I am completely open to any fresh thoughts as to why I am wrong on my thinking that Iowa State can do a heck of a lot better for a coach, even at 1.1 million dollars a year.
I get as frustrated at Mac and co. as anyone else but I'll tell you why I think he should continue to be ISU's coach. Have you ever met him or heard him talk? He is quite possibly the most optimistic person I have ever encountered. When things haven't looked the brightest (and we've certainly had a few of those at ISU), after hearing him speak I was ready to get up and run some laps. I can only imagine that type of enthusiasm directed towards an athlete. As much as I hate to admit it, 5 star recruits are not banging down doors to get to Ames. Mac does as much or more with what he has at his disposal than any other coach. Look at it this way, suppose you replaced a coach at a highly successful program with Mac. I think he'd be just as good or even better. The man has only taken us places we only dreamed 12+ years ago. I think he deserves our respect.
