    Sugar coat it all you want....

    Iowa State just lost to Drake in Hilton...this is by far the lowest I have seen the program. I'm in it for the long haul, I'm a clone to the end....but these are the darkest days. Losing to UNI and Drake is about as low as it gets...Hope McD knows what he is doing...

    Lowest you have ever seen the program? Really? That is dramatic. There have been darker days than this, my friend Jordan. Buck up camper, it'll be alright!

    we are a young team. don't get me wrong I am disappointed too, but with a bunch of freshmen playing or juco transfers we are going to have streaks like this, this year.

    Damn Jordan, I cringe to think of how you react to a bad day at school

    The final days of LE were much lower and much darker. What makes you think McDermott does not know what he is doing?

    If you expect anything this season you are a moron! Sit back, go to the games, support the team, and watch them learn and grow. I thought we would start out 10-3, but then i thought we would finish with a 16-15 record. So dont let a decent start against inferior competition fool you, we arent great.

    I assume McD is a lot smarter than I am, if not I would be the coach...so..i assume he knows what he is doing...however, i can walk down to the rec and find 5 guys that will give Drake a run...

    Exactly, and guess what coach is 90% responsible for where that program is today. Patience my friend.

    Really? Are you going to the "academically ineligible college athletes" gym? There are a lot of programs that would take Drake's players and improve from them.

    uni is looking great. probably the best team in Iowa and in a very tough conference now. With Bradley, UNI, Creighton, and Witchita State.

    Get a clue. You assume GMac knows what he is doing? That has been proven from his past experience. I assume you are not serious about finding 5 guys at the rec.

    Re: Sugar coat it all you want....

    I really don't think that we are very low right now. Yes, we lost to Drake at Hilton today, but we lost by 0.1 seconds of play. We battled back from a 16 point deficit (which I didn't even think would be possible), and we didn't play a horrible game. Our defense wasn't good, but Drake is a very experienced team who hit some contested shots, and I don't think we did all that badly today. Our biggest mistake was turnovers, and those can happen in masses when you have an entirely new guard corps. You can't just learn how to react in situations in practice, it just doesn't happen that way.

    The biggest thing that I like seeing from this team is the battle and heart to come back from being down big at the half (both vs. UNI and Drake), and finishing out the game strong. We didn't win today, but we've got the ingredients for success in the future. Let's do all we can do and cheer on our Clones.

    I will cheer Iowa State as loud as anyone, you are missing the point...We are making excuses for why we are losing to Drake....freaking Drake...

    Re: Sugar coat it all you want....

    rec ball is sloppy, yes kids look good there, but that is because everyone plays loose defense and trys to showboat on offense. if they were so great why aren't they on the team. there is a reason the kids we do have are on scholarship
