    This loss was tough, but we need to remember

    This loss is tough, especially since we still have to Baylor (twice), @ KSU, @ Missouri, but we are still in the rebuilding stage for this program. We are progressing nicely under FH and have been very competitive while we have already exceeded our win total from last year. Hopefully we can make the tournament (or at least a tournament) this season. We are upset because we know how close we are too the goal.

    I still think this year is a warmup for what is to come next season. I hate to look towards the future when we still have a lot to play for this season. Next season, with the recruits and the transfers we should be very tough. If FH can get some solid commitments in the 2013 class we will be in good shape, which in my personal opinion was what he was hoping to do when getting the transfers to bridge the gap to land some talented freshman in the future.

    You guys who crawl out of the woodwork to whine about the sky falling anytime we lose are a riot.

    We have a solid team. We have talent. We've improved, a lot, and have been playing well as a team. We've been "in it" every single game we played; we haven't suffered a blowout defeat all year, which is a rare and welcome change.

    One missed layup changes very little. Unless we completely **** the bed, you'll be watching Fred coach the Cyclones in the postseason for the first time in 6 years. Stop the crying, please--don't throw in the towel on the season, and don't be an apologist for having a winning season and being 4th place in the Big 12.

    Who is whining, I was stating a point. All I said is that it was a tough loss!

    Re: This loss was tough, but we need to remember

    The first post here sounds like a surrender.

    We're not in a rebuilding mode. We're chasing the tournament.

    I fully believe that we're right on course for the Dance right now, but the rebuilding thing is a "don't have expectations" idea. I'm not buying that. Team Transfer wasn't assembled to rebuild, but to dance.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Good point about the streak, I hate streaks like that, it just looks, feels and sounds bad. We will break it soon.

    You don't think we are in rebuilding mode? My personal opinion is when you have a new coach and new players you are rebuilding

    The word "new" here needs context. If the new players were a team full of freshmen, you would be 100% correct. In this case, we have a large crew of experienced players who have largely gelled by this point in the year, and proven that they can compete with anybody (and pull off a nice win here and there). Our players are too solid at this point to call them a rebuilding effort.

    As for the new coach, frankly, Fred isn't the normal new coach. That man is miles ahead of the game.

    So, no, in my opinion, we're not in rebuilding mode. We're in dancing mode.

    That said, tonight doesn't concern me. These games happen, very good teams lose on the road, and life goes on. I'm not changing my expectations for a tournament appearance with a chance at a run there. Simply no reason to do that right now.

    The only thing WE as Cyclone Nation need to do, is get the rest of the Big 12 behind us to make sure Joe DeRosa never Ref's another game again.

    It's not even that tough of a loss. Okie state is tough at home and we had a chance to win late. Our record in close games is pretty good but you can't win them all.

    Re: This loss was tough, but we need to remember

    I watched the game where i didnt have sound, but me and some other people were confused with the TM technical. i think it was a make up call for the one earlier. I wonder what the osu player said, because it didnt look like he said much.
