    ***Official Calm Down Thread II***

    This deserves a ******* 2nd thread.

    We outrebounded them. We committed less TOs than them (despite not having a "PG"). We got to the the FT line 27 times, much more than them.

    We did not shoot well, and we will shoot well. Chill.

    Our shot selection looked like it was from Mars.

    disappointing, yes


    Surprising, no.


    The children of CF and the hype they put upon this team, only to cry "It's Over", after a loss to a weaker opponent, well, there is a place for you. It is called Iowa City.


    This is a marathon, not a sprint.


    Patience, you must have patience.

    Re: ***Official Calm Down Thread II***

    hey its like all of us wanted to live in the off season. its time to man up and make this team work there is a lot of talent on this squad rome wasnt built overnight. if you didnt think this team wasnt going to have growing pains you are wrong. everyone needs to chill out and support this team.

    there is no way you can judge this team on the sample size we have seen.

    Re: ***Official Calm Down Thread II***

    Right now Iowa and UNI are probably playing better than us.

    We bring the ball up court slowly and then we do not have a solid plan to get a decent shot.

    Looks like we need to experiment with potential lineups a lot more.

    Re: ***Official Calm Down Thread II***

    I've been told to be patient for the past 10+ years as a Royals fan and been told to be patient for the 3 years I've been attending ISU. I'm going to be patient, but pretty soon it wears off and people will lose interest fast. I'll be at every home game in Cyclone Alley cheering my *** off, but we played like ***** tonight and there is no getting around that. Hopefully we play (and I think we will) play better Sunday.

    Let's face it. Everybody's just ****** they lost all their credits. That's why I never bet on ISU games.

    Re: ***Official Calm Down Thread II***

    Our fundamentals looked pretty poor tonight. Both teams were careless with the ball.

    On the offensive side we missed a lot of layups, and free throws, both are inexcusable. Add on top of that that we also shot pretty poorly from the field, especially Chris Allen. His shot selection was very questionable at times, and we seemed to be rushing long threes just hoping somebody could get hot instead of reigning it in and setting up a good play.

    On the defensive side we got burned a lot, and weren't playing good help defense, especially Scotty C. at the point.

    We look like a team that desperately needs to gel, but just can't work together. I have faith that eventually they'll get it together, but my hope is sooner rather than later.

    I am probably being contradictory and overreacting in the wrong direction. This night was not a positive. I'm oscillating between optimism and pessimism as we speak.

    We have a **** ton left to play for. I just wish we had a PG to lead us.

    We returned three scholarship players the past two seasons; whoever told you to be patient was right.
