    I can almost guarantee they get out every 1.5-2 hours and walk around so this does not happen. Heck we did that in high school for long bus trips.

    still stinks. It's probably a 4 to 5 hour bus time to Ames from Mannhattan. Maybe an hour plane ride. Yeah, I wan't to give up 10 hours of my life to a bus, instead of 2 to a plane. NOT. Especially, 10 hours of cramped.

    This, you don't usually associate tired legs with shooting 60% from the floor in the second half. Bad but typical excuse, makes me wonder what he'll come up with after we complete the sweep.

    Good point. I was focusing on the cramped-ness, not the duration of time.

    Did anyone see the bus? It was a lux-liner with fully reclining seats. Not a school bus or even a Greyhound....

    Bruce Weber is not that good of a coach. He inherited that one good illinois team.

    I think he is a good coach, but an absolutely terrible recruiter.

    Hopefully he is recruiting slow, pasty white galoots like everyone plays in the little ten.

    Just like Chizik inherited a good Auburn team.

    If he couldn't recruit to Illinois, there is no way in hell he is getting kids to KSU.

    Is Bruce Webber a lizard? Did anybody else notice his tongue darting in and out inside his mouth on the sidelines. It was very weird.

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

    I thought he whined to the refs the whole game. He may be a class fellow, but he isn't even close to CFH who only complains when the call is so pathetic you can't ignore it.

    Iowa State uses Signature Charters for every conference 'roadtrip' outside of KU, and the noncons vs. teams like Iowa, UMKC, etc.

    Webber might have made those comments to get in his players heads to test them to see if they have any cojones so they don't self implode and can respond this next week.
