    Re: Big 12 games 1/28

    Letting up on defense, brain farts, missing FTs, opponents making good plays, a little bad luck...

    With about 7 minutes remaining in the game UT game the other night, ISU has a 19 point lead. The...

    Same here...I just tell myself that this is a good thing and move on to another thread..
  3. Re: *** Official Texas vs IOWA STATE Game(day) Thread ***

    There was really only one "long range" 3pt shot during the comeback. Most of the rest came because the 3pt shooters were left wide open. Seems unwise to leave 3pt shooters open when that's...
  4. Re: *** Official Texas vs IOWA STATE Game(day) Thread ***

    Yeah, well...leave a DI scholarship athlete wide open and that's what happens. It was just mind boggling to watch how lazy ISU got on defense over the last six minutes.

    I hope Hoiberg can figure...

    Re: Interesting tweets from Travis Hines

    It doesn't have to be either/or. Players can improve their defense skills. Why isn't that happening, especially when the coach says that improved defense is something that needs to happen?

    Re: Interesting tweets from Travis Hines

    In pretty much every off-season interview that I heard from Hoiberg, he mentioned that ISU needed to get better at defense in order to move beyond where the team was. Halfway through the season, the...
  7. Re: *** Postgame IOWA STATE vs Texas Tech Game(day) Thread ***

    How do you propose to improve the shotmaking? Shots aren't always going to go. If this team wants to do something special, they will need to play better defense. You can't make a missed shot go...

    Re: Thomas mid range game

    Maybe it's time to have a "Plan B" for when ISU is sucking at the 3-pt shot, which seems to be more and more often as of late. I understand why Hoiberg doesn't favor the mid-range shot, but it would...

    Re: Contrary to Popular Belief

    IMO this is one area that Hoiberg really needs to work on. I know his system affords extra lattitude to the players, but they sometimes waste so much emotional energy belleyaching to the refs. Move...

    Re: Contrary to Popular Belief

    Pretty much. ISU is a nice team that is missing the mental toughness to bear down on defense, especially when the offense isn't going well. Not much different than past years.

    NFL: Re: New England under investigation

    Ehhh...kind of par for the course in NE. There was Spygate, and then last year some ex-Patriot players outed the team for doctoring (pun intended) their injury reports.

  12. Re: Will Cyclone Free Throw Shooting Give Us a Heart Attack?

    On the FT front, BDJ is 9/17 in conference. He was clipping along at 85% prior to the start of the conference. He can draw some fouls in clutch time, so I hope he gets it straightened out soon.

    Re: Future of Hilton Coliseum

    We all have impossible dreams. One of the many that I have is that ISU AD has been squirreling money away to make a big time play for the next FB coach. However, given all of the debt service that...

    Re: Future of Hilton Coliseum

    Unless ISU is planning on going after other non-university sporting events to make money, there really isn't any need to renovate Hilton as a university sports venue, other than to make sure the...

    BU got 23 second chance points off of 19 offensive rebounds. If Edozie could have gotten say five of those rebounds that ISU otherwise didn't get, in the overall score differential, isn't that about...

    Re: edozie..

    The bottom line is winning, not who is able to adhere to their ideal style of play. ISU gave up 19 offensive rebounds and 23 second chance points to BU. It will be very tough to win any more games...

    Re: 19 offensive rebounds

    This has been a recurring problem over the past several seasons. The question is how do you practice and prepare when you don't have that type of player on the roster. Bring in some linemen from...

    I hate it that WVU and BU are allowed to shove people around. But, that's the way the games are being called. And now, ISU has been shown vulnerable again this year...
