    Go Get 'em Team

    Please ignore the negative posters and realize that they are a small too vocal minority of Cyclone fans. Most of us appreciate the hard work you are putting in to make the team better, to win for...
  2. Re: This year vs. last year. People have short memories.....

    Well, he could still be right as the "next banner" is not going to be a conference championship, but maybe a national championship banner? :)

    Yes, I'm optimistic about this team and the program. ...
  3. Re: Is the loss of Doc Sadler bigger than feared?

    Exactly, no way we can do as well in the conference without Sadler, our current 10-6 record which can easily be 12-6 or 11-7 this year, notwithstanding.
  4. Re: Is the loss of Doc Sadler bigger than feared?

    Well, let's see:

    2013: We allowed teams to score 74.4 pts/game on 42% shooting, and had 5.9 steals, 2.9 blocks per game. Our effective opponent FG% was 47.7%, ranking 95th.

    2014: We are...

    Re: Missing Kane and/or Ejim??

    AND, 2 All-Americans, AND seniors. And, 2 additional consistent scoring options when we absolutely needed points. This year, Niang seems to be the only one capable of a consistent mismatch, and has...

    Re: Missing Kane and/or Ejim??

    Exactly, I've made the same point. If we win the next two, we finish 2-1 while last year's team finished 1-2, meaning there's plenty of time to jell more. U-Conn. did that last year as did we. ...

    Re: national championship banner

    I've previously posted similar sentiments before re: pre-season talk of conference and national championships, and wonder how much such talk has put pressure on the players. We only have two players...

    Re: WOW

    Right, it's not as if KU, which is again going to win the conference, would ever lose to this K-State team in Manhattan.
  9. Re: This year vs. last year. People have short memories.....

    And yet, both teams have similar conference records with this year's team still having a chance to finish the conference season at 2-1 vs. the 1-2 finish by last year's team.

    Re: Bench Points

    That was the biggest problem with today's game. Niang had to play 35 minutes when he averages 30, and they were very active minutes as he does so much in addition to scoring, such as bring the ball...

    Re: Coaching Versus Execution

    Agree to a point. Niang has now turned the ball over 3 times in crunch time leading to losses. However, we have turned the ball over on inbounds plays a lot this season, so maybe we need some new...

    Re: McKay/Thomas Peaking?

    Agree. He's our best on-ball defender which has resulted in a lot of steals and, unfortunately, a few times getting fouls in the last game. Fred has repeatedly praised how Monte is always in the...

    Re: Whar Edoize

    Agree. Edozie MIGHT have helped on the boards, but we actually out rebounded Baylor last night. What we needed was someone who knew how to cover the 3-pt line, although there was a hand in the face...

    Re: Taurean Prince

    I'm hoping Williams, with his 3-pt ability, will be a slightly taller version of Prince next year. What's exciting is he'll have 3 years of eligibility remaining. From the limited clips I've seen...

    Georges is shooting almost 40% from the 3 and big men coming out to cover him creates mismatches, something Fred has designed. You can't conclude that a person is a poor shooter by just looking at...

    Agree, and the fact we're his first visit is a great sign that we're in serious contention for not only him, but Diallo as well. If, and this is a (Naz) Long shot, he for some reason decides he...
