    These guys are tough as nails

    Nothing goes right the first half and into the second half. Yet these guys scratch and claw, the coaching staff makes adjustments and the guys respond. I love it, they don't get rattled with a team going lights out on them.

    This game must be a tough one to play for our guys for some reason, I have no idea why because all Fred has to do is show them recent history of sucking against UNI. I live in CF and am a graduate of UNI and ISU so I like to see the Panthers do well other than 1 game a year. I hope UNI puts it together and has a great year, but digging out from 3-5 may be tough.

    Hats off to our heart and coaches who never let them quit.

    Lots of adversity today, a hot UNI team, shoddy officiating, foul trouble, a banked 3 for the tie, and still found the will to win. Love it!

    Mental toughness. This team has it. (except not so much in the first half today)

    Great win today. These guys are way tougher than me. I turned to jello under the pressure.

    I don't think it was a lack of mental toughness in the first half, UNI hit shots out of the *****. Shots they weren't hitting all year. Luckily, that averaged out in the second half.

    We definitely could of played better in the first half but I think it was more UNI than us.

    Fortunately their poor FT shooting down the stretch helped offset their unconscious 3pt barrage - especially those makes that got them to an 18 pt lead.


    Utah Utes, Illinois Illini. The University of Pennsylvania thought about following this pattern by calling themselves the Pennsylvania Pencils. However, they were afraid their students would start chanting "We're No. 2"

    Seems like we've been starting slow last few games and get behind early.

    2-7 FTs. 7 TOs. Poor shot selection. Even with their shooting, we should have had 40 PTs.

    At about 13 min mark of first half Fred called TO so he could find someone, anyone who was willing to play D.

    Eventually they all did. They just had to get down by 18 to wake up.

    Only mistake UNI made is that they didn't finish the job.

    Re: These guys are tough as nails

    What pleased me the most was they didn't let Tuttle's 3 demoralize them. DeAndre got the ball rolling right away in OT with the and-one, and we never looked back.

    These types of wins are always more impressive to me. When you come out flat, don't play well, but still gut out the win, it is always big.
