    Buckley nope
    Eik Nope
    Mann Nope
    JVB Nope
    Hamilton (some)
    Pomlee ( apparently not good enough to help this team so he is redshirting)


    Edit... Other players that contribute

    AT Walkon
    Petey Walkon
    Haluska Walkon

    Not given a scholarship initially.

    A big 12 school that couldn't recruit one impact player.

    JVB has helped more than "nope" but I agree with everyone else.

    Re: What gets me the most

    Wait till next year!! We've got another bunch of highly regarded recruits coming in that likely won't be of any help just like last year's highly regarded recruits.

    All of our recruits except Brackins really aren't performing on a consistent level.

    Wow, this is pretty eye-opening. Interesting food for thought.

    Buckley doesn't even see the court. I think many people had doubts about the guys recruiting and this is why. Many or most of these players are reaches at the Big 12 level.

    What get's me most is . . .

    When people have to open as many threads about the loss instead of just keeping it all in the post game thread.

    Re: What gets me the most

    What gets me the most is that teams we should blow out we let hang around and teams that have more we hang around. I blame the style of play for this. Speed it up, get some easy ones! When you don't shoot a great percentage you need to get more shots.

    Not to mention they'll have to learn McD's "complex system".

    +1

    And the original post points annoy me too - as well as the fact that Craig is the only guy showing up on offense.

    This is why we would benefit greatly from better veteran players.

    I don't see a thread labeled as being the official post game thread.

    This thread is not just about the game today. It does NOT belong in a 'post game thread'.

    Re: What gets me the most

    Well... I didn't expect all of the recruits to come in and make a difference, but I did expect more then this. I think what is sad is the regression we are seeing.

    Going to be honest on this.

    DG- getting worse as the season goes on. Can't finish, can't dribble, can't be trusted with the ball.

    Haluska- our best defensive player on the perimeter is not saying much. Look what we have. Can't hit the broad side of a barn yet again this year. Should not be playing big minutes.

    Petey- Alot of heart... Just doesn't have the size and skill. Do love the heart.

    Staiger- Needs to learn how to create off dribble for shot. Could be a great shooter but probably won't happen because he doesn't get the chance to shoot.

    Ham-- Big upside. Just needs consistency

    JVB-- About the same as Ham

    Eik-- Odd looking shot. Seems extremely scared to release it lately.

    Buckely-- No clue... Doesn't play, can't tell what to think.

    AT-- Thanks for coming back from the dark side, but you should of stayed there. Defense is alright. No offense. Although, the getting denied by the rim on a layup was comical.

    Sorry but had to call a spade a spade on some of these.
