    You think our close losses were rough?

    I think virginia took the cake today: lost with a 10 point lead with 42 seconds left in the game:

    Miami (FL) Hurricanes vs. Virginia Cavaliers - Recap - March 10, 2011 - ESPN

    I can take losing when we were up 6 with 3 minutes remaining, but up by 10 with under a minute and losing is just brutal

    The final score threw me off for a moment....for a second I thought they came from 10 back and somehow won by 7 in regulation.

    Can you imagine the meltdown if that had happened to us? I am thinking that not even Coach Fred would be safe!

    Yeah, I would take one nasty loss like that instead of counting on Diante not to get a shot off in the final seconds before the buzzer several times over the season.

    5 posts. That has to be a record. 5 posts in and we have a DG slam in a thread not about DG. Nice work.

    Agreed, it's not like DG was our best player this year or anything.

    I am going to put it this way: Without DG, we are Iowa.........at best. We easily lose 20 games and all of our conference games.

    So you're saying that without DG we would of made a post season tournament?


    There are not many crowds or places in the country that have a better impact on the game than at Iowa State. The Cyclone fans are truly a sixth man. The place is so loud and always a fantastic crowd." - Former Kansas and current North Carolina head coach Roy Williams

    Re: You think our close losses were rough?

    To get back on topic:
    I watched the end of that game on Espn3.com replay. That ending reminded me a little of the game at Oklahoma during Morgan's last year (I believe), where we gave up an 8 point lead extremely late in the game. I'm fairly indifferent toward Virginia - but that one was truly a heartbreaker - my heart goes out to that team and their fans.


    Utah Utes, Illinois Illini. The University of Pennsylvania thought about following this pattern by calling themselves the Pennsylvania Pencils. However, they were afraid their students would start chanting "We're No. 2"

    The point wasn't that DG was the guy doing it. The point was that we lost several close games because we couldn't execute, and many times it came down to him with the ball in the final seconds. Excuse the lack of clarity.

    Re: You think our close losses were rough?

    I remember the OK game, I think we game up a 10 point lead in about 75 seconds. It was bad coaching, bad playing, and OK having every prayer answered.

    That loss was the "microcosm" of that season.

    If someone added up near-miss wins in that season, last season and this season I'm guessing it adds up to something like 18, adjusting for similar narrow victories during that span.

    We evidently just needed more losses. Not having DG would do that for us in a big way.
