    Houston Cougars are a better team then people think.

    Houston is up by 20 points on a Umass team that 17 days ago won at Kansas. This is for all the people that said the Houston win wasn't a good road win.

    Sweet, so if they win, that means by order we beat Kansas.

    Re: Houston Cougars are a better team then people think.

    There will always be negative Nancys out there. The Houston win is a good road win, especially for this team. It is frustrating that we can win at UNI and at Houston but lay some clunkers at home against Drake and SDSU (and, sadly, I was there for that last one). But hopefully games like the one on Sunday can prove to the guys what they are capable of.

    Some people have the attention span of a squirrel, and will go chasing after every little thing they see. Just ignore them.

    UMASS is 5-6 with losses to Jacksonville St, and UWGB. Not a good way to show that Houston is a good team.

    It was a good win though and I will agree with you on that

    Cyclonereport had a good interview with McD where he commented on that. I am extremely happy about that Houston win and I still think its quality no matter how some look at it.

    I just get sick of reading people **** and moan about every little thing. We could beat North Carolina tomorrow and someone would be ****** because Craig Brackins scored to many points.

    Re: Houston Cougars are a better team then people think.

    College basketball in November and December = Fairly worthless.

    Seriously, just don't completely kill yourself in the non-conference and worry about Big 12 play. As a fan, I don't really get into it until January. Despite our loss to SDSU, if we could finish 11-4 in the non-conference I'd be fine with that.

    It's a good win but it doesn't impress anybody other than Cyclone fans.

    All there losses were without Luke Bonner who is back now. They had won all 4 games he had been back until today.

    Yes by the transitive property we should win.

    Houston was a great win. ISU was a 13 point underdog. Go Cyclones!!!

    This year you are probably correct.

    Other years I would hope our games might mean something to the NCAA tournament committee.

    Re: Houston Cougars are a better team then people think.

    Any road win is a great win! Especially at Houston and while being 13.5 dogs like others have mentioned. I am not really let down by this team...I think they have the chance to knock off some people that they aren't supposed to. Just have to keep the intensity up! If you don't care about your opponent (like SDSU), that is where the trouble occurs!

    Also...Houston beating UMass is not too impressive to me. If you watched that Kansas game, you could see how they threw it away. Sort of like us against SDSU, although I wasn't there to see it.

    Re: Houston Cougars are a better team then people think.

    How anybody could not say it's a good win is beyond me. We beat a team on their home court that had won 7 straight games by an average of 23 pts a game and then they beat UMass by 26 today. UMass may not have a good record but they only have been blown out three times. Memphis beat them by 22, Wisconsin-GB somehow beat them by 17, and then this 26 pt beating by Houston. They have lost 2 games by 1 point and one game in OT by 4. So for any team to beat them by 26 is saying something. Houston was a solid win for our guys.
