Saw this AP article on Mac's pay raise and have some issues with it. First of all, I wish Dan would stop with the poor-mouthing of the football program for self serving reasons. He did just get a raise after all.
Also, I take issue with the author stating our facilities lag well behind those of our conference counterparts. Really? We lag well behind KU, KSU, TT, Baylor, Mizzou, Okie State in our facilities? Do all those schools have a building like our indoor training facility? I would say we are in the middle of the pack with regard to our facilities, and yes we need to make improvevments at JTS, but it looks like that is being addressed.
Finally, the author saying the Hawks have dominated the state for a century is just stupid. I might be ranting here, but I really get tired of these types of articles that always paint ISU in the same negative light true or not. I guess winning will take care of that eventually. AP Article
You definetlly took this article the wrong way. It dosent stress that we currently are a bad team, or that we currentlly get dominated by Iowa. It simply states that these are things that were happening when McCarney took over the program in 95, and he has turned it all around, and that these things are not what is currently happening.
Its a very good article that shows that McCarney was well deserving of this raise.
