    Meltdowns

    Love them, lets throw away all rationality. Don't step any closer to the ledge 90% of you. Its a rough game to swallow, we overhyped our team a bit IMO, they are good if they get things going again, but right now they are physically and mentally weak, and what seemed out of shape still. UNI is good, i'll give them that. I'm not going to call our season a failure yet cause there is plenty of time left, but hopefully we will see big improvement. If not I'll have to start question GMac. Goodnight Cf, hopefully none of you jump off that cliff. I'll be there the rest of the season to support them no matter what.

    UNI is above average. ISU is above average. We should never, ever lose that game in Hilton, period. That's what I'm getting tired of. We've had terrible teams in the past be able to beat above average teams in Hilton on a consistent basis but that home court advantage has been gone for 5 years now.

    Nope. The season is over. We lost twice. MBB is a 5 month long double elimination tournament. Might as well start getting ready for next year's football. What do the two deeps look like?

    NCAA Tournament or time for a new coach. I can remember games in Hilton in the late '80s and early '90s beating teams that ISU had no business beating. GM has not won a game like that in his entire 4 year tenure at ISU.

    Imagine next year without Brackins or Gilstrap.

    It'll probably look a lot like the second half of this game, being that they both disappeared....


    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.

    This x 1000. More than anything else, this is what bothers me the most.

    Re: Meltdowns

    I can only say that we got out coached! Many people were saying the same thing as they left HC. I don't think we ever had a good play set up with a screen or two to get Brackings the ball deep. UNI was patient and knew exactly what to do to get the ball deep and we coudl do nothing about it.

    This is getting old!

    Pathetic.

    No NCAA tournament again. This team will lose too many games early before they start clicking.

    Re: Meltdowns

    It is the coaching. It takes us 15 games every year to get our act together on the floor while the other teams seem to have it figured out how to end a game by the fifth game.
