    i dont think alot of you relize how important

    this game was for isu. i think this was THE game that will determine if isu gets in postseason tourney. The main point the commites have looked at last few years is decent away wins. ofcourse with lucca n wesley being out will help. Uni minnesota n iowa are must wins for a chance at postseason consideration.

    If we are in that position, the NCAA will be sure to realize that we were missing our best player.

    Wow!! Game 3 and we are already dead in the water. Guess we need to increase the kool-aid distribution.

    I think we played pretty good considering we did not have Wesley, and this was our first road game of the year. On the plus side, allot of young players are getting plenty of playing time.

    Isn't Bradley picked to win the MVC?

    Fold the tent boys! we'll get 'em next year



    seriously, give the guys a BREAK! It's their third game in a tough atmosphere. Hell, I was happy we were competitive. WJ would make a world of difference. We showed our inexperience and that's all we can say about it. People read WAY too much into one game.

    Re: i dont think alot of you relize how important

    I really can't say it was that big of a game considering how we're a very young team and there are going to be a lot of big upsets early in the year this season. Factor in the fact that most of us don't realisticly see this team going to the NCAAs this year and you don't surprise a lot of people.

    I honestly don't see why people think we can win 20+ games this year - we just don't have the experience or scoring power that it would take. Next year I think we could be in the dance but we will be in two years. Building takes time and this team isn't built to dominate and that is going to show early and often this year.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Re: i dont think alot of you relize how important

    Rebounds made a HUGE difference in this game, and Wesley Johnson being out really hurt us on rebounds. This would have been a completely different game with Wesley. We were 10 point underdogs, and Vegas hit it pretty close. I didn't think we would win this game without Wesley, but when he comes back my expectations for the team will be higher.

    Our inside guys need to work on their toughness. Did anyone else feel like Bradley had 6 guys on the floor when they were on defense? When our guards had the ball at the top of the key, they would bring 2 or 3 defenders to him, but we still had nobody open. How is that possible? I just think Bradley did a great job scouting us and won this game with their defense.

    Were not as good as we were in 2000 but even so, they lost to drake early in the season on the road. Not that big of a game, just a good learning experience

    Re: i dont think alot of you relize how important

    It would have been a good win for NCAA tournament selection, but it is not a bad loss. The fact that we played them on the road, especially if they go on and are successful, only adds to our strength of schedule. Beating a sucky team hurts you as much as losing to a good one.

    Re: i dont think alot of you relize how important

    I can handle some of the knee-jerk reactions in football because every game is so important but if we have to do this for basketball...its going to get frustrating.

    I know we are all very passionate but the peaks and valleys of some are humorous. Win and you are sky high, NCAA here we come. Lose and you are rock bottom, Wait until next year.
