The only thing that he said in regards to McCarney was this is the third coming of McCarney...The first was building the program...The second was sustaining the growth and the third will be a trip to the Big XII Championship/ major bowl game. He also credited Gene Smith for not pulling the plug on him after four seasons. JP said Mac gave the program the stability to take the next step on and off the field.

I listened to the whole hour and I can't say that anything was new. Not that I expected anything new to most Cyclone fans that have followed news and such. He answered questions on his goals of our "$135 million gamble", answered questions about Witoski, the chances of a big 4 tournament, what a bottom line win number is for McCarney before he is fired and other such that is run over and over. The only new news was of course the 3 Hilton and 3 Jack Trice boxes being sold before they even exist. That was big news and great to hear! It was a great interview, but I can't say that Cyclone fans that are up to the date on news missed much!
He did mention that in the facility plans, provisions will be put in place to allow for even more suites at Jack Trice, and possibly an upper deck in the south endzone if someone wants to put it there. I'm not sure if we should read into the fact that he said someone else would be putting it in and not him.
