    ISU getting lots of love on KC radio

    Listening off and on today on 810 WHB and consensus is they are impressed with what Fred has done and state that the Big 12 needs ISU to be good. Just said they wouldn't be suprised if Fred builds a "monster program".

    Would like to get back to how it was in the Floyd & Eustachi years. Starting to feel it is headed that way.

    Makes you wonder what direction the other teams are headed.

    Like with Baylor be able to keep pulling in 4 and 5 star players and will Tech become the bottom feeder of the Big XII.

    I was also listening as well. I also liked how they mentioned after the win Hoiberg was calm and cool and acted "like he had been there." They said they bet Hoiberg doesnt want to see our fans storm the court. I tend to agree, we need to act like its no big deal.

    No. Not with Mr Gillespie at the helm.
    Lon will have Oklahoma back at some point too.
    Big 12 is going to become even more of a meat grinder than it already is.

    First win against Kansas in 14 games deserves a court storm, next year it shouldn't.

    This is true. Ultimately the southern teams will always have advantages (and fans) for football. For basketball, thats something where we have the best chance of shining (though its not impossible in football, its just a lot more difficult). Even if we never got beyond mediocre football, it helps the conference to say 'we've got these teams that are great in football, and these teams that are great in basketball... everyone brings something great to the table' (whereas, after the last several years, there's not much we've had to show for ourselves)

    people have a damn good reason to storm the court after the crap McDermott put this program thru....and Fred loved it.

    you are wrong along with the radio station.

    From here on out, there is no court storming unless it is an extremely unique situation. I really can't think of one that we would actually encounter.

    However, it was the first home win vs a top 5 opponent in at least 6 years against our biggest Big 12 rival in a game that we needed to give us a much better shot to get in the NCAA tourney. There aren't many regular season games that can be that important. You can't be above storming the court until you get that first huge win that allows you that mindset.

    yeah i figured at some point he'd get them back up, just seems like a very hard task right now.

    i think OSU is on the rise too.

    Re: ISU getting lots of love on KC radio

    My take on storming the court is this: Do it. Just this once. This crap about "Act like you've been there before" is just that, crap. The students haven't been there before. There was a time when we won games like this on a consistent basis. These students haven't been a part of that. They were 4 or 5 years old.

    Now that that they've done it, the next time around I would expect them to "Act like they've been there before."



    What ever happened to truth, justice and the American Way?

    Re: ISU getting lots of love on KC radio

    Fred was high-fiving students as they ran on the court. He seemed amused.

    I agree though - if we beat them, next year, we shouldn't storm. This year was fine.
