    Bruce Webber's Post Game Excuse...

    Did anyone catch Bruce's post game excuse regarding the fact that "We had flight problems, so maybe since we had to bus up here, maybe we didn't have our legs in the second half." I thought that was funny..

    Yes, I think Fred said it during his post game interview that it would be a long bus ride back to Ames.

    Yet they made almost every shot they threw up. Might want to coach tired legs in the future to help their shooters.

    I agree - always thought Weber was a class guy - these are 18-22 yr. olds, for pete's sake - why would he even touch on that?

    That's what I was thinking. The number 11 team in the country shouldn't be phased by "possibly tired legs."

    You've watch the Flintstones, right? Flying = tired arms. Bus = tired legs. That's why they shot so well but couldn't otherwise hussle/run the floor.


    May my postings be polite and not misunderstood. (And hopefully funny on occasion.)

    Re: Bruce Webber's Post Game Excuse...

    Do the players get First/Business Class on flights? If not, a bus would be more comfortable on their legs than Coach Class on a plane. Or do they usually take charters?

    Did they have to run laps around their "super-size" fans on the bus? If not, that's weak.


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

    You obviously aren't over 6 foot tall. Riding a bus can be miserable for a tall or big person.

    At least when I, at 6 ft 3 in, get on a plane, I know I am cramped for a very short time. a 45 minute plane ride in a cramped seat is much easier to tolerate than a 4 or 5 hour bus ride in one.
