    Not as bad as it seems

    I'm just as frustrated as anyone with the recent losing streak but should we really panic? I was surprised about the outbreak on social media to the point that Hoiberg called out the fans. We are 14-3, ranked #16 in the country and were on pace for a 2-5 seed. Shooting slump is evident but the rebounding and poor defense is just hustle. Ejim said he was going to be a monster on the boards and did that. As some posters have said, chemistry looks weak right now and we don't have that swagger. When things didn't go our way Saturday a lot of players were whiny about it. I think we'll be fine, last year there was a players meeting right before Kstate and that ended up being a huge win for us! I still think we win 12 games in conference. Go state!

    Not sure why anyone is mad. Each loss was close and we are already exceeding preseason expectations. They will figure out. People need to expect at least 4-5 more losses though.

    It could have been worse. We could be Ohio State who just lost to Nebraska.

    Re: Not as bad as it seems

    True look at Ohio st. and hell Wisc. to a certain extent. What's encouraging to me is that in our 3 losses these things happened in order for us to lose:
    1- We shot absolutely horrid from the 3pt. line, I mean horrid.
    2- Our rebounding intensity took a hit and some players just got lazy.
    3- These teams that we lost to are not traditional great 3pt. shooting teams yet OU and KU to an extent had the night of their shooting lives, won't happen again.

    We don't need to make (15) 3 pters in a game to win, we just need to hit 8-9 of them and hit the boards. We make 8-9 threes a game and win the rebounding battle and we win 99% of our games.

    Re: Not as bad as it seems

    I'm not frustrated at all. There were games in those first 14 we probably should have lost but didn't. There were games in the last three we could have won but didn't.

    We're 14-3 and capable of beating anyone on any day. On neutral courts and with a little help from our friends, this team can still go a long way.

    Re: Not as bad as it seems

    I read CFH's Q&A press release and thought it was a good read and well said, with no lack of confidene indicated. Where or what exactly did he say about social media and fans?

    Re: Not as bad as it seems

    Is anyone really panicking right now? If so, I haven't seen much evidence of it on this board. We're really early in the conference season with plenty of time to get things back on track. This next 3 game stretch is key, though. If we go 0-3, then there will be panic, and rightfully so.
