    man that OSU loss looms large now

    such a winnable game to slip through our fingers. win that game and we are in sole possession of third place in the big 12. granted if we beat baylor we will be there anyway, but had we won that game things would be looking a lot better for us in terms of conference seeding as well as tourney hopes (not to mention being 2 games up on the 4th place team).

    oh well. guess we just gotta beat baylor and be done with it.

    Let it go. You can say the exact same about the OSU game at home or the KSU game at home. Those wins are looming large now too, aren't they? We 'stole' both of those.

    My thoughts exactly. ISU was very fortunate in both those games.

    Heck yeah! Some of us didn't even go to the game.

    Re: man that OSU loss looms large now

    Overreact much?

    Two weeks ago everyone said they would be thrilled with a split in Oklahoma. That was exactly what happened and a week later some people are still of the opinion that the OSU loss is going to kill us in the long run. GET. A. GRIP.

    This team by all expectations from the media, the conference, even most of the fans is performing above expectations. Perhaps a year ahead of schedule. While I would love for ISU to be in sole possession of third place, I'm not going to **** and moan that we're not there, especially since the true alternative is that this team lived up to expectations and is riding at the bottom of the conference.

    Man, the losses to Drake, UNI, Michigan, KU, MU, OSU and Texas are looming large now. The team had the chance to win the conference and be ranked in the top. 5.

    Re: man that OSU loss looms large now

    I don't get why everyone is making such a big deal about that game..I honestly didnt care if we lost that game. I kind of expected it. Big 12 wins on the road are tough no matter who you are playing (except for tech)

    Re: man that OSU loss looms large now

    We control our own destiny as to where we finish. Anywhere from 3rd to 6th place would be possible depending on how we play from here on out.

    You can't ask for much more than that at this point in the season. After our last 6 years, just getting in the tourney is all I'm asking for.

    not overreacting at all. im not worked up about this. don't think the sky is falling. just thinking out loud and saying "man, that would have been sweet". that's all. i guess voice inflection was needed for this post. and as others have pointed out, we have "stolen" our fair share of games which we easily could have lost too.

    Same here. Could be in second place right now in the Big 12.

    this is true, but OU is also in the cellar this season. although i'm still not marking that game as a win either until the final horn blows.

    i predicted a loss for that game too actually. perhaps it would have been better to lose by 10pts. then none of us (me) could say "bummer. what could have been"
