    We are fine!

    I repeat, we are fine. We actually played better against better teams in Cinn and UNLV, but we will be fine. Think of this as our Drake game from last year -- a big wake up call.

    The Drake game was a turning point in our season last year and I feel this will be a turning point in this season.

    I totally agree, but losing to them is irritating to say the least

    We're not fine, but it's not a train wreck.

    Potential is there. Performance needs to match.


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

    Re: We are fine!

    Remember a guy named Chris Allen? Went roughly 2-15 in the Drake game? How did he turn out?

    Remember a guy named Royce White?(not saying we have anyone that closely resembles his game) but how did he turn out after that game?

    Remember a guy named Scott C? Whom didn't shoot more than 5-7 shots a game until after Drake? How did he turn out?

    It will be a train wreck if we lose to Nebraska Omaha Sunday.

    We are not an 8 seed in the NCAA or 3rd best B12 team, but we are a good team....we are just not playing as a team right now. Everyone overreacts after a loss, but we will be fine.

    Yes, I'm sure Freddy is telling his team just this. We are FINE.......ummm, no. This team looked like **** vs. Cinn, UNLV and now Iowa. I hope someone on Freddy's coaching staff will get after these players bc they are running wild. Shooting 3's whenever they please and turning the ball over like no other.

    Good thing the Big 12 is down this year, otherwise it will be a long season. Our athletic ability will win us game, but our coaching is what is killing our team right now......

    Tallman, we are going to shoot 20+ 3-pointers a game, that is how this team is built. We shoot 40% and we win most games. Tonight we shot close to 30% and had 19 TOs and STILL had a shot at this game.

    We make 2+ more 3-pointers and this is a different ball game. I know that is all coulda/woulda talk, but thats how this team is built.

    Remember what its like to get a large lead on teams like kansas and texas only to have some asshat drain 2 or 3 3-pointers in a row to cut the lead to 0? Thats how this team is built, we just didnt make the shots tonight.

    Re: We are fine!

    Here is what is causing me some concern.....

    Last year, just like this year we had PG problems. The difference is that I'm not seeing a 1st round NBA draft choice (who is probably a lottery pick if he doesn't have off the court issues) that can step up and play the point at 6'8" 270. Clyburn's handles are not even close to Royce's.

    I think PG problems will plague us all year. I do think KL will get a little better, but we just don't seem to have a go-to guy that can step it up when needed.

    With that said, this might be the worst the B12 has ever been, so anything is possible.
