    Appearantly we lost to the greatest MBB team every assembled

    Granted, I know nothing about this Cal team, but that's what I took from the Fox broadcast.

    So really, we should feel pretty good that we even appeared to belong on the same court as the future national champs.

    Yeah, when Ernie gives Cal credit for DG blowing by everyone for a lay up- "that's what Cal wants them to do", it's pretty bad. I can usually stand homer announcers, but he was worse than most I have heard. Total PAC 10 guy to the core.

    They are a good team. Can't forget they won the regular season Pac-10 championship last year.

    They are not a good team. They aren't very good at all.

    We got beat, so the refs must have sucked bad?

    Last I checked, a team that set a record for least points in a half would not be considered a good team.

    They're picked 7th in the Pac10. Which is a bad conference.

    Cal is not a good team.

    They are also 5-2 and beat Temple who is currently ranked 20th. They had a bad game..that doesn't mean they are a bad team.

    And anyway I'm not saying they are a really good team or a great team..I'm just saying that they are a good team.

    Looks like their inside game overcame our outside play. That said, we did okay in paint for points. Our three point shooting in first half was three for ten while they were five for eight. That was a difference for them,.

    Average, at best, would be my view. But it's early, hard to say. Who knows how good they (or us for that matter) will be in February. They have a lot of limitations as well.

    And anyway I'm not saying they are a really good team or a great team..I'm just saying that they are a good team.

    And even if they aren't a great team, why do at the very least a vocal minority of Cyclone fans pretty much feel that we were going to win without any sense of objectivity?

    I really feel that some people on this board are WAAAAYYYY too quick to guzzle the Kool-Aid. We beat five bad teams, and one decent team (Creighton) and some people are ready to compare this team to the Fizer/Tinsley squad ten years ago.

    Anyone who thought going into this game feeling it would be an easy win needs to get a reality check. With the exception of a few more of our non-conference games, there are no easy wins for this team! And the sooner people accept that, the better.

    We accept it, but we as a team can get and take better shots. We can improve as long as we continue to hustle.We will get better.
