When did I say any of this? Actually, I am very supportive of people who have different opinions, I have said it multitudinous times on this board, and I stand by it. I wasn't attacking your opinion on wanting Mac fired (although I personally believe it's too early in the year to be calling for his head) I was attacking the notion that by just "playing well" you build tradition. If you want to keep deflecting my statements by saying I'm personally attacking you, that's fine, but I never did that. Also, I never even mentioned anything about Mac being fired, except that if the team doesn't turn it around by the end of the year, that in my eyes means the team gave up on him and that would definitely be grounds for dismissal.
I also don't think it's unrealistic or anti-ISU to openly think that this coaching staff cannot deliver the expectations of the players, school, and fans. Wanting a coaching change if one thinks the current staff is not capable of delivering these expectations is not being anti-ISU or a bad fan. I think it's being pro-ISU and a good fan based an a different and very realistic perspective. I think it's okay to have independent thoughts and state them on a fan forum. I don't think one needs to get a bad rap to want what one thinks will improve the team. (not saying that you don't think this is okay, just stating as I get the feeling, no names, that many just want all fans to be quiet and step in line.. I don't think rocking the boat is bad if the boat needs rocking). I think by not standing up and stating the need for a coaching change if you feel this current coaching staff isn't capable would be anti-ISU and a bad fan. I think we need to stand up as donors, alumni, and fans for the school when we think a change is needed. Doesn't mean everyone has to, but to be labeled as negative is wrong. I think it's being positive and excited about wanting and accepting necessary change.
