    Not a single Cyclone ...

    ... has shown improvement. Not one. Why?

    Re: Not a single Cyclone ...

    Funny, I could swear that Craig and his double-doubles were an improvement. And DG is a heck of a lot better. Staiger we didn't see last year. Just where are you looking for improvement? The walkons?

    Re: Not a single Cyclone ...

    Petersen is a lot steadier this year. Haluska has been more consistent to start the season than his start last year, and his defense is starting to come back around.

    There aren't that many guys around to be improving yet.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Because our players are so burdened by the 'system' they're trying to learn that they can't....not sure if something is supposed to click at some point but, it sure hasn't happened yet. Nothing wrong with a motion offense and some fastbreaks...especially if your players are more talented than the competition. I'm losing faith at a rapid rate

    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.

    Re: Not a single Cyclone ...

    Guys who we are counting on this year
    Hamilton: Freshman
    Eikmeyer: Freshman
    Vanderbeeken: New guy that is banged up
    Garrett: Soph
    Brackins: Soph
    Stiagger: 1st year Soph
    Buckley: Freshman

    Thompson: Senior
    Petersen: Walkon Senior
    Haluska: Walkon Senior

    I sound like a broken record, but we are not going to be any better until Garrett and Crew are Juniors and Seniors and the younger guys are not playing as much. We almost should have went after a big guy in the juco world just to get by then next couple years. But I think GMAC was thinking they will have Brackins, Hamilton, Vanderbeeken, Mann and Pomlee for next season.

    Re: Not a single Cyclone ...

    I think individual player have definitely improved over last year. The team as a whole has definitely gotten worse since last year.

    Remember how bad they were in December last year? And that was with Jiri, a senior, still around.

    People have individually improved but can they take the team and make it better. When you have one player a game who can score, you are hurting to win any game.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    Re: Not a single Cyclone ...

    I would say Petersen is better than last year...DG started off great but has really tailed off lately

    Re: Not a single Cyclone ...

    The early returns on player improvement aren't good. We'll see how it plays out in the Big 12 because the lower half of the league is not looking very strong. If we end up in the 10-12 range again, that's a baaad sign.

    Re: Not a single Cyclone ...

    I guess the most disappointing thing is we're not showing improvement during a very easy non-conference schedule.

    To me, SH and Wes e. are the only ones not really improving.

    Re: Not a single Cyclone ...

    I am fed up with this program and its direction but I have to disagree with this statement. Some of the players are getting better, but the team is NOT.
