    I'm perplexed . . .What is going on?

    No way we should see our women get hammered like they have.

    No way we should see the same "softness" in our men's BB program AGAIN this year. We have even seen it in our women's BB team . . what is going on?

    I am really beginning to fear what is happening at the Hilton. We need Johnny Orr back on the sidelines.

    We did see Johnny on the sideline last night.....remember Drake went on a 26-0 run in the second half and our coach didn't call a timeout. It was "Johnny like".

    Re: I'm perplexed . . .What is going on?

    Was Petersen the only one allowed to shoot the last 7 minutes of the game? I couln't watch it on TV, so I had ESPN gamecast on, and I thought there was something wrong with the feed because it kept saying Petersen missed three point attempt, over, and over, and over...

    Everyone was missing shots. Brackins missed free throws that would have tied the game. Why aren't people talking about that?

    Welcome to reality, you wanted a MVC coach and now you have one. This team is being built like a MVC team, this strategy does not work in the Big 12.

    Hate to say I told you so but.....

    If they were playing to win instead of not to lose, like we always seem to do, we could stick a knife in these teams and not have it come down to a missed free throw at the end. They need to toughen up and get that killer instinct quick, because no one is going to lay down for us like we did last night.

    For some reason, that first sentence had my mind going to a totally different place.

    Anyone want to compare McD to D Mac in coaching styles like I did when McD was hired? (Playing not to lose and fading down the stretch)

    Then don't.

    Since you are the know-it-all oracle, who should have been hired instead of McD?

    What non-MVC coach were we going to hire?

    3 straight losses to Drake....DRAKE....means you lose your job. Watching ISU pretty much makes me want to throw up

    Because people love to blame coach, the AD, and the Hilton janitors for everything.
