    Too many close games as of late, I can not take it anymore!!!!

    Someone tell CFH that the health of ISU basketball fans is an issue as of late and we need a couple of blowouts in a row at home against Baylor and Oklahoma to get healthy...

    Could someone tell Coach Fred Hoiberg!!!

    For someone who's supposedly concerned with our health, you don't seem to take umbrage with forcing us all to re-live last night by reminding us with your post. Thanks.

    Its better than never being in games and getting blown out by 20.

    Fred doesn't use timeouts. Fred doesn't foul up three late. Fred keeps it too close against opponents ISU would never had had a chance against under McDermott.

    McDermott style.

    I'll take the close games (both loses and wins) after dealing with McDermott basketball for 5 years.

    Buy an AED and keep it on hand for ISU games and be thankful that ISU is in these games rather than getting blown out by 15 to 30.

    Know exactly how you feel. I'm predicting blowing out Baylor Sat. though cause we'll be traveling and I won't get to see the game, so that will probably be our comfortable blow-out. And no, if it happens, I'm not going to do that for every game.
