    McDermott lost me.

    Outcoached. Out hustled. Brackins schooled by a 7'1'' sloth and he wants to be a lottery pick yet can't find a single second half field goal. Garrett thinks he has a green light to throw up a three whenever. Everyone standing around. No one working for the ball. No rebounders. And the more terrible we play the more I notice how terrible everything else is. The atmosphere. The opening video. There are more commercials at the game than watching at home. It just isn't enjoyable anymore and I will not be tortured this year. Brackins came back and Mac couldn't coach himself into the tourney if he had 5 of Brackins. We will lose to Iowa, I said it earlier and I will say it again. And I am done with Cyclone basketball until McDermott and company show me something to be a fan of.

    Re: McDermott lost me.

    With ten players playing no one should be gassed for as much standing around occurs on rebounding.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    I think Mac told them to watch the other team to learn to rebound better.

    Re: McDermott lost me.

    Say what you want about Wayne Morgan, but I had the feeling that every game we played with him and his players we had a chance to win. Anymore, it is the exact opposite.

    That made me laugh a little, thanks.

    Tonight was the end of me having any faith that a McDermott coached team can win a close game.

    Re: McDermott lost me.

    He lost me at his hiring press conference when he was asked about recruiting kids outside of the state of Iowa and he said,... "if we need to". Seriously Greg?

    Re: McDermott lost me.

    I was arguing the other day that ISU fans are more loyal that Iowa fans.

    I now think I was wrong. We have just as many fair weather fans as they do. It's a shame, really.

    Re: McDermott lost me.

    I'm not ready to say yet this is the last straw for me, but definitely disappointed tonight, probably as disappointed as I have been in the McD era.

    I have to wonder about the rotation. Why didn't Hamilton play more in the 2nd half? Why did Brackins only take ten shots for the entire game, especially after saying he needed to be more aggressive after losing to Northwestern?

    It seems like our shooting percentage is dictating how we play the rest of the game. Even if you don't shoot well, you can still rebound and defend, and the last two games we're not doing that.

    Re: McDermott lost me.

    I think it is becoming increasingly obvious that Coach Mac is not, and never was, the answer.

    Fair weather fans? 4 years of seeing the same mistakes in the same situations would lead any fan to question the direction our program is headed in.

    Re: McDermott lost me.

    At least he is taking the blame, as he should. He managed the game poorly today. I think we'll turn a corner this year... but this is depressing.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    our weather is a lot crappier

    ISU fans are crazy f'n loyal - we're not exactly asking for miracles. This was craptastic any way you slice it.

    Plus we still put butts in the seats. We should be thankful we get to argue about what those butts in the seats are suppose to do, but at least they are still there. We have that over Carver..... for now

    It starts with fundamentals and we seriously lack in that dept. Sorry that is coaching, no rebounding, no crashing the boards, bad shot selection. Box someone out please and I mean actually box out put your butt into there gut box them out to the floor I do not care just freakin do it!!!! It just plains disgusts me right now, Iowa State will not make the tournament if this keeps happening, period!!!
