Dan McCarney has brought his football team to Kinnick Stadium facing long odds before.

In 1998, Iowa State was a 28-point underdog and expected to lose a 16th straight game in the series with Iowa. McCarney's Cyclones pulled off the upset, 27-9, a game that turned a one-sided sleeper of a series into a rivalry again.

McCarney, now in his fifth season as the head coach at North Texas, returns to Kinnick Stadium as a 26-point underdog Saturday.

Maybe it's just me, but does anyone else think that Big Mac's Monday night shows sound more like he's in his 1st or 2nd year rather that his 5th?

Yes. And that is because he is still in the phase of trying to convince people with lip service because his teams on the field performance sure as hell speaks for itself. Macs clock is ticking and if it weren't for our pompous AD extending him we could cut all ties immediately and bring in fresh, young blood in the offseason to kickstart this program in the right direction. Thanks, RV.
