    I agree. I see his comments as, we had them beat, but something we did (or didn't do) kept us from winning, kind of like the game is theirs to lose. I do not seeing anything wrong with what he said besides the 11th ranked, but that could be out of context as others have said.

    Re: RW: "We had them beat"

    His comments are spot on. He believes that we can beat those teams and so do I. We clean up our game and we win this game. We ARE improving and its showing. Just need to close up games with smart play.

    Re: RW: "We had them beat"

    I love his passion and "want to" when it comes to winning. This team is growing and learning what it takes to play big time basketball. His comments are directly related to the frustration at seeing how close they are to winning these big matchups. The corner is soon going to be turned and I can't wait!

    Re: RW: "We had them beat"

    "We lost that game, and we had them beat" is a tad different than "we are better than they are except for".....insert excuse here.


    And for his comment about being #11.........it's about time we had some cockiness about us. We had four years of nice guy BS from the clown that almost ran this program into the ground! I welcome back that "kicked your a**" Johnny to Dicky V. on national television attitude. Well done and said RW!

    Re: RW: "We had them beat"

    I like his take in these comments, it shows confidence.

    Not a fan of how CA brought up the refs in his interview. Players should leave officiating out of comments; just makes it sound like sour grapes.

    Re: RW: "We had them beat"

    Well, we DID have both those teams beat...and we ****** both games away. I really like RW's comments. RW saying 'we're the #11 team' was just him trying to make a point. That we are not far from either of those teams. I love it. Really loving me some RW right now.

    agree 100%. not far off from either of these teams. this has been a good college hoops season so far. lots of parity in my opinion. keep playing like this, fix some things, cyclones will be just fine.

    Re: RW: "We had them beat"

    you people seem to have this need to over analyze and read too much into everything. for whatever reason many of you go out of your way to get all worked up over something trivial, such as a rag quote. All royce is saying is that his team is very talented and that they need to learn to put people away. If/when they can do that, they'll be one of the top teams in the conference

    Re: RW: "We had them beat"

    This team wants to win period. They have heart, class and everything that is needed to be a top tier big 12 team. We WILL get better every game. We need a leader bad. The two that will lead are not playing this year. Have fun and enjoy this. It will only get better from here.

    Mark it down now all. Clyburn and Lucious will be the starting backcourt next year and will average a combined 35 points NOT taking bad shots.

    The FUTURE is bright and that starts this season. Support this team.

    Sorry RW, you don't have anyone beat until the final buzzer. You don't get credit for being ahead in the middle of a game.

    That said, good work playing them tough.
    RW is right. The team needs to learn to win. Fred has to learn too. It takes time. This is a brand new team. This is a new coach. If they can pull off an important win soon, then tey will pull off more.

    The fans need to pack Hilton.

    The students in the fan section need to be obnoxious.

    ISU can make the big dance. It's a real possibility.

    Re: RW: "We had them beat"

    What is wrong with what he said? This team is getting better. The game planning is getting better. The team just needs to find an ID late in games and that will come with time.
