    We Can't Even Win There When it's Empty.

    I wish GIA would disappear. Frustrating.

    Does Eddie Sutton still come to most of their games?

    It was weird seeing GIA that empty. I thought they had better fans than that.

    I feel like we've seen better crowds at Hilton in the same situations during the McD years...

    That arena is in our heads, period.

    They could literally field a team of midgets with no one in the stands (which, by the way isn't that far off from tonight's reality) and still beat us.

    If you sent the Bulls in there with ISU jerseys, they'd be screwed.

    If we just had 5 guys try to play against no one, every missed shot would rebound across the court and into the opposing basket, some how scoring points for the team that wasn't actually on the court.

    Except our situation had been much worse during the McDermott years than theirs is now. Just shows you how much better our fans are than theirs in my opinion.

    I love when people are so into fanhood that they come up with this reasoning. How many current players and coaches have been involved in this losing streak? and how many years have each of them lost in IBA? I doubt they get recruited knowing this place is suppose to be scary.

    just like we went into OU and won, something we hadn't done since the Big 8.

    What a pathetic fan base. McDermott's worst years we still had ~10,000 minimum for home conference games. Same goes for Baylor, Texas, OU, and aTm. The best thing about the whole situation is they'll all out recruit us - unbelievable.

    That crowd tonight looked worse than our exhibition crowds.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Dude, its a joke. We haven't won there in 1/4th of a century, and have lost gut-wrenching heartbreakers in back to back years there. I'm making light of a frustrating situation, not being serious. Figured that was obvious.
