    Enjoy the Moment!!

    I really wish people would stop complaining and yelling at each other over whether the crowd was loud enough or not. The team is playing good basketball, they are a lot of fun to watch, and I don't know about you guys but I had a **** of a time tonight. I wish some of you would just do the same. Stop complaining and just enjoy what we have right now. Cause it's a lot of fun!!

    We have been in every game so far. That is a huge improvement.

    Hopefully it's only going to get better. I feel really good about where things are heading.. this effort with more depth and a true post player or two and we are going to be competing for tournaments. I like what I see.

    Amen and Amen. Enjoy the ride, folks. This team is playing hard and some good basketball.

    Appreciate the effort and reward it. We're seeing the beginning of something special here.

    Another bonus that I haven't seen mentioned yet: Fred wasn't satisfied in the postgame. he believed that this game is winnable and expected to win it. I love that.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    This. All 4 of our losses are by a combined 15 pts. We could have won each and every one of them if one more ball bounces our way. We are close to turning the corner as a program. Fred will bring back ISU basketball and have us competing for Big 12 championships again, soon.

    I love Fred's reaction too. It reminds me of CPR in the way that we're not going to say "aw shucks we were close" but use it to get better.

    But, aw shucks, we were close tonight.

    We were. I believed until the end that we could do it. We really could have done it.

    We probably should have done it, but I'm OK with it.

    The place was rocking and the team never quit, even when we got down double digits they found a way to climb back in it. Great game to watch.

    This team just will not go away. They've shown it in every single game this year. Very proud of the effort, and these kids are setting the foundation of great things to come, and I think they will be remembered for that. I also think they have a solid chance to win quite a few more Big 12 games than I ever would have dreamed.

    IIRC with less than 5 minutes to go, we missed 4 shots in a row, and we were defending like madmen, while down by 7. This game was close.

    I take solace in the fact that the eating of the young over here is minimal. Over on HN, they are in full "we needed to hire a Hoiberg" mode. That was just a bad game against NW.

    CFH just does not have the talent to pull the wins off this season, ISU basketball will be fun again very soon!

    Enjoy losing? You're kidding, right?

    Honestly, I was disappointed in the turnout last night. With Kansas and Johnny in the house, last night should have been a sellout. There's absolutely no reason why every single seat in Hilton wasn't filled. If I made the 5 hour round trip, no one else can make excuses for not attending.

    I think you are mistaken. It already is. Even the games we won last year, I felt it was in spite of ourselves. We went through periods of 5+ minutes where we could do nothing right last year. This year, we definately make mistakes, but we don't compound them by making more. We are overmatched, but we make up for that with outstanding effort. We probably won't make the NCAA, but I hope for an NIT. That would be a tremendous accomplishment for the current makeup of this team, a lay a great foundation for the future.



    No matter how good you are, you're going to lose one-third of your games. No matter how bad you are you're going to win one-third of your games. It's the other third that makes the difference. ~Tommy Lasorda

    I think the answer is in your name. I loved GMAC as a person, but you can't argue with losing badly for 4 years taking the wind out of the average fans sails. Ten years ago last nights game would have been a sellout, but it isn't ten years ago. I was very happy with the energy of those who were there. If Fred keeps this up, the people will fill Hilton up within a year.
