    Re: NOTEBOOK: Time to regroup

    Some great quotes in there from Royce. I really hope we make a run in the NCAA tournament. I think as a fan-base, we are VERY down regarding the game last night. What a buzz kill it was!

    Re: NOTEBOOK: Time to regroup

    Scotty's comment that our guys lacked a sense of urgency is right on, and that's the disappointment. It's hard to imagine how it's possible to show up for tournament play without a sense of urgency.


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

    Re: NOTEBOOK: Time to regroup

    Not a good outlook. We ran into a team that was desperate. What do you think the Tournament is going to have? Much better teams who are much hungrier.

    With so much on the line and this team can't get up for it. Very disappointing

    Re: NOTEBOOK: Time to regroup

    The thing about these guys is that this has been there MO all season. Whatever it is, Fred has shown the ability to get them focused again. If they can somehow beat the first team, they will find the opponent "worthy" of their effort.

    Here is to me hoping that we get a lower than 9-seed so that we are a playing a "worthy" opponent every game.

    Re: NOTEBOOK: Time to regroup

    Jeez, if ya can't get up for the Conference Tourney where ISU fans were clearly the majority, hard to think we can get up when we are 1500 miles from home and playing in front a couple of moms that made the trip.

    Re: NOTEBOOK: Time to regroup

    The players' comments reflect the concerns I and others have expressed on this board for some time. When some were upset we weren't ranked, others were quite happy with the way things were because this team seems to need a reason to prove themselves. They love being "underdawgz." Combined with being ranked, knowing we're in the tournament, and getting the #3 seed, I'm not at all surprised by their letdown.

    Their behavior in the game reflected a certain cockiness which doesn't reflect the fact that this team has won by playing good defense, blocking out, and playing team ball in crunch time. The team was laughing, jumping into each other and, in the case of Allen, smilingly arrogantly after almost each score. Texas, on the other hand, did not do that and were serious and focused.

    Having said that, I expect the team to play the way they need to play in order to win in the NCAA's. If they lose, I hope the disappointment is in losing to a better team and not due to a lack of focus/intensity.


    "Of course the people don't want war ... the people can always be brought to do the bidding of the leaders. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to greater danger."
