    Yep, let's blame the Secretary - after all, Angie DID say she'd like to pound Maggie Gyllenhall with a bag of nickels during The Dark Knight...

    Bummer. That sucks, we were soooo close to winning. We'll get them next time.

    It's OK to be disappointed with a loss, but calling for someone to be fired after each loss is crossing some line.

    It's like there aren't any Cubs fans here...

    Ok, I am done in this thread and all other idiotic meltdown threads.
    Drake was good last year. The year before they were barely .500 and this year they probably won't get to the postseason. I get really tired of the meltdown threads as well but there is a real lack of hope with this program right now and it's not just confined to this board.

    The problem is not once in three years have we beat a team we weren't suppose to. Be just lose to teams we shouldn't.

    "For the last four days, I've been single-minded in identifying and recruiting a coach who can inspire passion, teach the game of basketball, sell a program to recruits and fans, educate his student-athletes tirelessly, connect with Iowans, and build a total program that rivals anyone in the Big 12 Conference and the Nation" - Jamie Pollard

    That's what I was expecting and I thought that was what the AD was expecting. When will we see it?

    Agree 100% with the OP. I even went out and tried to order some ****** pills so I could put myself in a spot to see where all this meltdown is coming from but their orders unexpectedly rose about 10pm last night and they are all sold out................Bummer.

    I agree with everything you said but this.

    Well, we saw it after the Chris Colvin signing.
    We saw it after the UNI overtime win.
    If we beat Iowa, we'll see it again.

    What, you didn't realize it was just the big "L" that prevents many people from seeing it? They see it when they want to.

    2006-07 they were 17-15 we lose at home
    2007-08 they were 28-5 we played at the Knapp Center
    This year they won't get to 20 wins and we lose at home again, all I want is for this team to beat teams like this at Hilton, I don't think that is too much to ask for.

    Two examples for 3 years. I'm looking for a little more then that.

    How about beating a team in the top half of the Big 12, 1-19 in his career at Iowa State. How about beating a Missouri Valley Team 1-7. How about keeping a majority of the recruits you bring in? How about excitement about the basketball team? How about a chance at a Post Season Tournament? A first round win in the Big 12 Tournament. Get back to me when these things are happening.
