    Twister Sisters

    OK...I can't help it. Have to comment on a few things even though I wasn't at the game. First - Pop. What can you say? She is playing at a monster level. Hope she can continue as we get into the Big-12. Will be a necessity as soft as Prins is playing. Not sure what is happening there. Second. 14. 14 points. The 14 points that Buffalo was held to in the second half tonight. Got to love defense like that. It will be our bread and butter. Loz stepped in for Moody big time tonight and we are seeing Jess become a nice piece of the puzzle.

    Pop is more athletic than Prins.

    Prins will be key if we have a chance at making the NCAA's this year as the Big XII season starts.

    You aren't going to like tonights news that Jess is taking a leave of absence. Yikes, losing a starter just before B12 play is going to suck. I was just getting over the bowl beat down and now we have to head into those first games with no Jess?

    Unfortunate news about Schroll. I just hope she isn't out for long. She's always been fun to watch and plays hard.

    Re: Twister Sisters

    I wonder whether Schroll's leave is related to the situation last night ? I hope not

    Re: Twister Sisters

    Schroll? Where, when, how did this come out? I'm stranded with a slow phone as my only connection. I wonder if this has anything to do with how (relatively) calm Coach was last night.

    I thought he was quite reserved as well

    Re: Twister Sisters

    I hope coach is big enough to apologize to her. There is a professional way to handle yourself in a situation, and he went too far. Hopefully, she'll get past it. This is a bad time, because she could transfer to another small school for second semester and play right away closer to home. I don't want to see that.

    Re: Twister Sisters

    There is an announcement at cyclones.com. States that her status for OU is uncertain.

    Hopefully she just needs a couple of days, and the leave is the means to do that.

    We love watching her play. Jess is one of the draws that brings us to games. She always plays hard, her defense has been exceptional. She has incredible offensive skills and has finally been coming to terms with them this year as well. She is just a lot of fun to watch.

    Jess can only do what's best for her. In any case, she should know that a lot of Cyclone fans are cheering for her.

    Is she the person that needs a leave?

    Re: Twister Sisters

    I don't like to hear this stuff; whatever it is, let's hope it gets worked out. As much as we like and support the WBB, I think coach goes a little too far too often lately. We love Jess. Bottom line, if there is a problem, let's get it resolved and move ahead.

    Re: Twister Sisters

    Jess is a very important piece of this team. If we lose her we lose maybe our best defensive player. She held Henddersn from Buffalo to no points in the second half when she was guarding her. The save she made in the first half on the east end where she went airborne out of bounds and flipped the ball bacck to one of our players waa great. many players woild just have let the ball go. I hope that if the reason for the leave is because of what happened on Thursday, Jess deserves an apoligy. Not to put down Pop's great stats but without 4 other players playnig hard too she becomes just another player.

    Re: Twister Sisters

    We have started going to more women games over the last couple of years and have seen a lot of in your face yelling.

    However, Bill has always been known for this and the girls signed on to it.t

    On the reverse side it now seems (from what we can observe and from what others have said) it has been getting worse to the point of over the top.

    For those that have followed closely, has there been a change or increase? I mean he seems way over the top, but we cannot evaluate from long term perspective.

    If so, he may need to evaluation how he needs to change/coach or adjust.

    Feedback?
