    Maybe Twister Sisters Aren't Very Good

    Granted one blowout loss to a highly ranked Stanford team but losing to UI like that makes me have doubts about this team. Hope they can get their collective acts together before they get to conference play or this could be a very disappointing season.

    Even the sun shines on a dogs......

    One game does not define a teams season. They can still work throught it and be ready for conference play.

    Re: Maybe Twister Sisters Aren't Very Good

    Well good morning to you Mr Sunshine.

    Disappointing loss I'll give you, but every team has an off night or two. Iowa is better than their record, and will probably find some success in the big 11. Should we have won? Yep. Were we flat? Yep. Will Coach turn them around and jump start them? I guarantee it. All is not lost my friend.

    I hope so, too. I actually think they have too many good players on the team and no one can get into the groove. When they had basically 6 last year, I think that made those 6 play harder than they are now.

    Re: Maybe Twister Sisters Aren't Very Good

    I do not think this team is bad, yet they are missing something.

    The team last year was bound together by adversity after the injuries. Those left playing found a way to step up and they came together. They seemed to thrive being a bit of the underdog and came back and played great ball in many games when they were up against the wall.

    At this point, this team has to find its inner strength to get better when pushed (Iowa and Stanford). I am sure they all want to find it, and I believe we have a great coach capable of leading them.

    It will click at some point, the question is when.

    Re: Maybe Twister Sisters Aren't Very Good

    IMO, reminds me a bit of '06 football. I wonder if the girls were reading their headlines a bit too much.

    Long season, plenty of time to right the ship.

    Re: Maybe Twister Sisters Aren't Very Good

    Iowa had 24 points in free throws alone correct? Get the fouling crap shaped up, the game might have been a whole nother beast. It seems off character for the ladies to foul that much. They will move on and this game will be forgettable.

    We fouled too much and we missed too many threes..two things that are not trade marks of our Ladies. Just an off game from the start.

    Hopefully forgettable to us, as fans. I hope Bill reminds his girls of this game and how they played the rest of the seaon.

    They DO NOT suck. This is a better ISU team than last year. They just had an off night. Besides the game was at Iowa. This doesn't hurt us that much. We just need to find the missing pieces and rebound from this loss. I have faith in our girls.


    WE ARE IOWA STATE

    The team is still pretty good, but they are not great. Top 25 worthy? We will see how consistently we can show up against teams that have a pulse... so far, not so good this year. It's still early....

    Re: Maybe Twister Sisters Aren't Very Good

    Dec 21 vs. UM Gophers (presently 8-1) ...

    ISU has played two teams from major conferences, and been blown out twice. IMO, how the team plays against the Gophers will indicate whether there should be concern or not...
