    Youth

    We do have a young team. Kansas also has a young team. The difference is ISU has to develop the talent it has. The elite teams do not have to develop their young players to the same extent. ISU's best players needed development time.

    Re: Youth

    FYI, Missouri and Nebraska are the only teams older than us on the 8 deep. So, do our guys need more time to develop than every other team or just Kansas?

    We beat Nebbie and Mizzou just had one of those days. We havent had one yet. Maybe Saturday is our day
    And again, we are not playing with 4 star recruits and most nights it shows.

    The problem is that Oklahoma, Ok State, Kansas, K-State, Texas, Texas A&M, and Baylor are all younger than us and bringing in better talent. How do you catch up?

    Once again, you are saying that our problem is talent. Which it is. Our problem is not that we are young, but that teams are more talented than us. To think that youth is the reason we are not very good would be incorrect

    Less talent, and young boils down to having no room for error.

    Well, we bring in Colvin and Gilstrap but Texas brings in the #2 class, Kansas #5, Oklahoma #11, Oklahoma State #12, Kansas State #21, Texas A&M #23, and Baylor #25. Not to mention they all (I beleive) bring back more minutes next year than we do.

    <p>I am saying youth, given the talent we have is the problem. If even 50% of our players had over two years in the program, neither youth nor talent would be a major issue. Not saying we would win all our games, but we would be consistently good.</p>
