    Since the start of December of 2011 hasnt he shot like 24% from three??? I hope he ramps it up too, but until then, going to just need his D.

    Right now, I think McGee, Georges, Melvin, and Gibson are bringing the most to the table. Some of these other guys need to play better.

    Thank you, I do realize we just played two ranked teams, and one on their home floor. That has nothing to do with being so fundementally poor. Even when open, our guys shoot fade away threes with their legs kicked out, we miss layups, no help defense.

    I think in the end we will get better, like last year. But that doesn't make it any easier watch bad basketball.

    Which is funny since that was the one position where I thought we were loaded. Should of had John and Eric take the red eye out there to do this game. When BJ and Paul fill in I think rarely win.

    Guys, it is November. You just't don't throw these guys together and immediately come up with a final four team. They will be fine, it takes times. If they look like this in mid-January then get worried. But they won't. Teams get better, shocking revelation I know.

    Agreed.. Its not that we lost, but how we are playing.

    I think all these things are totally correctable, and we can be fine. These guys do work hard and rebound hard.. In that aspect they are probably ahead of last years team.

    Do people really think we'll shoot 34% from the field all year?

    We will be fine. A piece of humble pie is much better than a 50 point blowout where you learn nothing.


    Guys will get better. Think about how much we killed Chris Allen last year for taking horrible shots.


    I'd rather peak in March than November. Again, we will be just fine.

    Rebounding looked good. That was a knock against last year's team in the early-going.

    I didn't expect the offense to look so out of kilter.

    No, and I also do not think we will lose the ft battle by so much. We are close to being a good rebounding and defensive team. A little improvement and the shooting will be good enough.

    Anyone that is ripping on Clyburn, the guy had 21 points and 15 rebounds. Usually, that would be considered a pretty good night. Had some dumb turnovers because he has no business running point but overall pretty good.

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    Re: ***Official Iowa State vs UNLV in Vegas Gameday Thread***

    I think this is a good team. I also think there are many on the team with lots of pride and they will gel together as a team. I think we have the disadvantage of throwing people together who haven't had that much game experience together. And I don't doubt if there is a way to get these guys clicking, Hoiberg will find a way. Whoever gave the example of Chris Allen gave the perfect example. By the end of the year I thought Chris, though not a point guard was indespensible to the team. By the end of the year I was really impressed by that guy, and with the whole scheme that Hoiberg had come up with.

    Re: ***Official Iowa State vs UNLV in Vegas Gameday Thread***

    No one should be surprised that we lost to two top 20 teams considering we have only 2 returning starters who are very good role players but not big time players.

    We are relying on 2 brand new transfers and Booker who is clearly another role player.

    KL and Clyburn will get better and Hoiberg will find ways to utilize our players. Niang, Gibson and Naz are just getting going too.

    Plus the B12 looks like dog crap so we should still do fine in conference

    I think in the interview at haftime with Coach Matt he said the plan was to let Will play the postion that Royce did last year, to see how it would work. We will see.
