    Kind of funny how when the team was struggling people talking about staff changes but when things are turned around that all of the credit goes to BF.

    I don't think it was.

    Not trying to sound like a jerk or anything. I've just seen several people state that people were calling for BF's head in January, and I don't remember it that way at all. I remember people taking great offense at anyone who dared criticize any aspect of BF's coaching and implying that anyone who did wanted him gone.

    July 2nd, huh? My guess is they would go someplace else other than Denny's for dinner that night.

    That's also the way I recall the threads here and on CR. Bill has done great things at ISU but he is just a man, not a god and not above criticism. I’ve been a big fan of Bill’s and the program but have ended this season with some mixed emotions. I do not have the “I can hardly wait for next year” feeling I have had at the end of the last dozen seasons. Sort of sad, at least for me.

    Re: Five Days that defined a season

    BoxsterCy expressed my feelings exactly. As we left Hilton last night, I told my spouse that I would miss Loz and Chaz and wish it could have ended better but that it was time for this season to be over.

    It's time for everyone to heal physically and mentally, look at the lessons that were learned this year and come together as a team and staff and apply what was learned for next year.

    Re: Five Days that defined a season

    I am glad this season is over, but also proud of the team and BF for what they accomplished through this year.

    I guess, I am excited to see the team next year, our post game should continue to be strong, and I am excited to see a couple/few quick guards join the line up. I have high anticipation for seeing Moody and Bingley play together.

    I have seen Bingley play. She is a gamer on both sides of the ball and one heck of a scorer. Her ability and desire to score should take a lot of pressure off Moody.

    I feel bad for Nicki. She had her best game of the year in Kansas City, then the game Saturday....

    IMO that was an issue at the end of the season, tired because of the great Feb. we had but I think Pop & Anna were hurt more than reported (as you do not tell your opponents who is hurting) just watching them play. Pop only played short stretches at a time (even when not in foul trouble) and Anna's dead eye three point shooting wqas off (right shoulder issue). With what we get next year coming in to go with the experience coming back bodes for an even better season next year.

    Go Cyclone womens basketball !!

    I kind of do. Loz and Chas have both made huge strides while here, but against teams with great pressure defense they just don't have the physical ability to handle it. That's not any fault of their own; it's just who they are. We're getting at least two, maybe three guards (if Vanloo makes it here) that have more of an ability to do that, although as freshmen we'll probably be banging our heads against the wall watching them at first. :)

    We don't make the tournament the past two years without Loz and the past year without Chas. But change is exciting.

    Anna needs a healthy offseason. I don't think she's had one yet.

    Yes she does, but don't hold your breathe for that. I think we would see a more dominant Anna if that were to happen, but I just don't see it.

    Re: Five Days that defined a season

    IMO, ISU needs to hire a specialist in women's conditioning who is also understanding of the issues of tall athletes. Using the football S&C staff is a reason why WBB and the VB team started these seasons with injuries. Not saying they don't know what they are doing, but from what I heard about some of the drills....let's just say the girls are not football players.

    I definitely meant to imply that in my comment in that thread. We used to be the team with the defensive advantage, the teaching/coaching edge like WGB had Saturday. BF knows the game far better than I do, but I'm sure he is wondering what he can do to regain the edge. We have plateaued a bit while everyone else has gotten better in their teaching skills. Being comfortable is not the same thing as being successful. Sometimes you have to choose...
