He's not, and there are plenty of others like him who feel the same way. A significant portion of the fanbase never got behind Chizik, and 3 years after the 56-85 coach was fired, folks are clamoring to bring him back. God Speed ADJP...you're going to need it in order to get somebody to jump into a mess like that...
"Don't worry Boss...they can't do nothin' 'til they're through sparklin'..."
The only way McCarney would have a shot here is if a bunch of coaches turned us down and suddenly we got into the month of January with no coach. At that point, we may get desperate enough to call him. I think ISU is the highest profile job open at the current time so I'm sure we'll get it filled but I could see us having some problems.
You know.... it was just 3 seasons ago....
7-4 and bowl appearance
7-4 and 3 losses were on the ROAD in OVERTIME (Nebraska, Missouri, Kansas)
7-4 and a certain part of the fan base was unhappy.... you think McCarney wasn't unhappy ?
My point is McCarney put players on the field that year and had us in a position to win.... a missed field goal or a missed Leader's interception in Lincoln was the difference in taking us to the next level.....
You know... I would be right there like I was when we welcomed Chizik... to welcome back Mac.... for some it would upset... but you know... reality check says we are NOT who we think we should be and may never be... I'll take 7-4's.... 9-3's.... 3-8's.... the way McCarney did... with class and loyalty... "we all know Seneca scored on that damn play"
