    1999-2000 Elite 8 Team

    My first post. Been on the site just never posted anything. I was not able to see all of the game but what I did see wasn't pretty. Just wanted to let people know before they jump off the cliff, that the 1999-2000 Elite 8 Team lost to Drake in the second game of the year 44-48. Not saying this years team is winning Big 12 championships or anything but just realize there is a lot of season left.

    That team had a PG and a bruiser in the paint. That might not be the case this time...

    Exactly there is a ton of season left, however this team doesn't have a true PG like that team had with Tinsley and that will be a huge problem going forward.

    And for the record I still think ISU beats Iowa at Hilton but it might be closer then I first thought.

    I'm sure they thought Tinsley was the true point guard then too....

    Royce had 21 and 14.....I would call that a bruiser, but he's the only one...

    We're lucky it's at Hilton or it would probably be a guaranteed L.

    And you would say that after the second game in 1999?

    The reason the 99-00 team was so good is there were no people on message boards ******** about how bad we were.

    Oh, back to the days before the Internet was popular.

    Re: 1999-2000 Elite 8 Team

    I've been on this site forever and finally decided to post a while back. The only thing I've noticed is that a few "legend" posters are some whiny *** ****s. I don't want to hear they are supposed to be huge backers of the programs.
    I've put my money in this institution for 20 years along with my kid going to school there recently. Sit back and let the dice end up where it may. Stop the ******* ******** being thrown out after one loss. It's that damn simple. Life will end up A ok. Fred knows the game of basketball. It's either him or that idiot Wayne Morgan. Your choice?

    I'm not going to freak out. That place sucks to play in, and its happened before. We'll be alright.

    Haha - was a joke. If there were message boards during that season we would have been the worst team in the planet following losses, especially after losing to Drake.

    People will always over react. I'm still holding judgement on whether or not we are good this year, but will not decide after one game.
