    Quick.... someone tell me what GMAC's first few seasons at UNI looked like. Maybe it will make me feel better.


    Just in case you didn't know... I'm a girl.

    I am done being invested in ISU bball this year. I am getting too mad and too frustrated and it is not healthy.

    You know what the answer is! You stated it above! Better guard play! That isn't going to happen this year though...we are in a difficult situation right now! Ouch!

    Come on now, hos, that's a little harsh.

    I've said it before, I watch every minute of every game, good or bad.

    These are my Cyclones, win or lose.

    Re: MBB: Meltdown thread

    MCBB in this era is a guards game. It starts and stops with the guards. And before anything happened this year, back in September, we all knew that ISU was going to be challenged with an inexperienced backcourt. Lucca's situation made a shaky situation a devastating situation.

    As bad as it feels, its not surprising.

    Add to that Wesley's health, Jiri not at 100% yet, and you are getting what you are seeing.

    Re: MBB: Meltdown thread

    I was unimpressed with GMAC's resume at UNI. They typically faltered down the stretch in conference play and although they made the NCAA a couple times...UNI also made the tourny prior to GMAC so it's not like he broke new ground. They also won a game in the NCAA prior to GMAC (something he was never able to accomplish). Remember Maurice Newby over Mizzou!

    Dead on! It is a painful process to tear down and rebuild! Look at it this way...we are one year ahead of Iowa in the process!

    Re: MBB: Meltdown thread

    I only got to see the second half but we were out rebounded, played extremely sloppy, and looked very slow too. On the offensive side I think I saw 2 shots in the paint when I was watching which is a problem of driving and rebounding(I'd be curious to see how many offensive rebounds we had). Terrible game

    I think I know you well enough to believe you will be back after a couple of cool off days.

    Especially after we pound Iowa on Saturday!



    “One day we’ll be in here celebrating a Big 12 championship,” Rhoads said. “That I can promise you.”

    "I hope to coach here until I retire," Hoiberg said.

    This is the truth! Very good post! Can't let the obvious blind us just because we are fans! Doesn't make it easier to experience though...
