    No matter how hard we try

    We foul at the 11 second mark and give them 2 and then they hit a 3 at the end. I don't get it. I hope Fred keeps coaching and they don't get down on themselves. Something is bound to go our way. Fingers crossed.

    Re: No matter how hard we try

    Did we learn nothing from the Kansas game? How the hell did we not foul on the inbound?

    Re: No matter how hard we try

    This game isn't over yet.


    I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,
    “You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. During the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
    “Because,” says the Lord, “Sandpeople always ride single-file, to hide their numbers.”

    On Fred again, can't coach the last minute of a game.

    This, and either one of the overtimes, probably don't happen if Gibson doesn't play...

    Re: No matter how hard we try

    Fred did foul that first time. The thing that NO ONE EVER TALKS ABOUT is that you just give the other team another possession or chance to steal or chance for ISU to f*** up. The inbounds play would have been hard to foul too with the person moving out from inside the lane. The problem was no one got on the inbounder. That's maybe a coach's mistake, but more likely a mental error. Letting Kabongo get that easy layup (similar to the KU game) is really what hurts again.

    I hope Freddy learns from this season. And I'm not talking whether to foul or not up 3, as that probably varies depending on the situation and you never know which way was the right way until after the fact.

    I hope that he learns you need to be tough to win on the road. If not, you've seen the ceiling for him and this program last year. Fred is sort of a player's coach. He runs a soft, spread offense. He runs a soft, help defense. He recruits soft, offensive minded players.

    That will work in Hilton, but we won't win many games on the road without some more toughness and D.

    I think Fred is an average coach, but there's not denying that we have absolutely sucked inside of a minute to play in both halves this year. We usually botch our last possession and it's rare that the other team doesn't hit their shot.

    I can see where he's coming from on that one.

    Yes, Fred told Ejim to throw up a wild lay-up attempt with 14 seconds left on the shot clock in a tie ball game. Yes, Fred told Clyburn to hand the ball to the other team.
