    Everyone calm down

    Some act like this BB team wont win another game. It is earily in the season. Yes this win would have been nice but it didnt happen. Like I said before not many nights will this team shoot 29%. I think the new guys had real problems with the quick turn around, physically and mentaly. There is talent on this team, IMO their issue is they need to realize they have to show up to every game and play for 40 mins.

    Re: Everyone calm down

    Terrible, terrible game. Hopefully, they can use this as a learning experience. You know, don't go 10+ minutes in the second half of a game without a field goal. We couldn't have done a better job of handing the game over.

    I don't know, maybe you weren't watching the same game I was. That was an uninspired performance. You didn't quote the best part of my post, 10+ minutes in the second half without a field goal. I would have been happy with a win, but not pleased with the performance. Simple as that.

    hear what you're saying, but don't have too much confidence in Mac. Better coaching would have won this game and I think most of you that really know basketball x's & o's would agree.

    They make one more shot and they win.

    Same stuff we've been used to and what concerns me. I'm still sold on this season and firmly believe it's still NCAA tournament or bust - and can be achieved.

    But a few more games of having long scoring droughts would change that.

    The thing that buged me is every game this year to this point this team has went on a run and put the other team away. Tonight they had a mini run but didnt finish it off. There were times when they could have put this game away but didnt.

    And if a donkey had wings he could fly. This is about as lame as the "the great ISU MBB team lost to Drake" nonsense that comes out after many of our non-conference losses.

    We lost, no if's/but's. We lost. If we had won by a point, NW could say the same BS line.

    I'm not too concerned, yet. These guys are good together, but seemed to struggle in Chicago. They're still a 'new' team that has to learn how to play to each others strengths.

    Coaches, Coach....Players, Play....

    ISU tonite missed easy oppurtunities, lays up, dunks, put backs, free throws. They also had defensive breakdowns on the back door cuts that they have been working on for weeks at practice. If you want to blame that on Mac...? Go ahead, but it is the farthest thing from what happened tonite, ISU was in a position to succeed and they did not complete the plays on the floor.

    You need to stop. Some can't be reasoned with. The missed easy shots, dunks and blown assignments on defense can't be blamed on the players.

    The Greg haters have had this one built up all season, they finally get their chance to rub one off.
