    I still think of ISU at Iowa under GMac....I have rarely attend road games, but I have never seen a team absolutely give up like that. Something was wrong.

    All that and more. GMac = Fail. And it was so frustrating that he had so many apologists year after year.

    We are in sooo much better hands now. The future is bright. Players want to transfer TO ISU instead of AWAY from ISU.

    So CFH has done better with a depleted roster composed of players that he didn't recruit than Mcdoormat did in his entire time here. Amazing.

    If you turn all those conference OT games and games we lost by under 5 around for the win, we would be at 22-8 (9-6). Kind of frustrating how we couldn't close out (at least some of) the close games until the last couple, but I've been impressed with the heart this team has shown all year. I couldn't be more excited for the way the program is going.

    He never won in the Big 12 tournament. The 200 plays in the playbook went silent at tournament time.

    So if we can win one tourney game, we'll have beat another McD record?

    Unbelievable that this team outperformed last year's team without Gilstrap and Brackins...or any other McDermott year. It's sickening we had to endure 4 yearsof that.

    I might be wrong, but I think we've only won 1 Big 12 tourney game since Larry was fired.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    McD first game Big 12 tournament losses were by 7, 14, 13, and 5 points.

    Basically, we can all thank Creighton over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over for hiring Captain McDuddypants.

    Thank you, Creighton! Thank you!


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

    Just saw your signature line for the first time.....I was thinking the other day that if there ever was a team that seemed capable of pulling off the last place to ncaa's miracle we would seem to be a good candidate for that. Close losses basically all of conference season plus now momentum into the conference tournament.

    If we could just get a better matchup than Mizzou...

    Without checking, I know the last one was 2004-05 vs. Colorado (opened that game w/ a 17-0 run, I think). It doesn't help, of course, if you're usually a 7 seed or lower going into it, which has been the case since '06, if I'm not mistaken.

    But did we win the opening round game in '03 (LE's last season)?

    If not, it's one Big 12 tournament win since 2000.
