    McDermott is 0-12 against ranked opponents

    OUCH! Here's to hoping that streak ends tomorrow night against Cal.

    One word that comes to mind, that has been brought up recently.

    Toughness.

    Re: McDermott is 0-12 against ranked opponents

    Cal is only ranked because their last loss isn't factored in the current poll. It won't count in my mind. I'll still be tickled if we win.

    I'm surprised we've only played 12 ranked teams in 3+ years.

    Re: McDermott is 0-12 against ranked opponents

    GMac's 2-8 all-time record against Missouri Valley Conference (MVC) teams since coming to ISU is more concerning (1-3 UNI, 1-3 Drake, 0-2 Bradley). Unfortunately, against Cal we are less talented and up to this point we have shown that we are soft and lack grit and tenacity. Past behavior is the best indication of future performance. We have the ability to turn it around but until the Cyclones prove it I won't believe it.

    I don't know if you've seen Cal play at all...but you could just as easily say the same thing about them.

    Unfortunately, I think Cal will be angry, coming home, and looking to put the hurt on somebody. In addition, I think the Bears are more talented and have one of the best coachs in America in Mike Montgomery. This road crowd, unlike Drake will play a factor. True road game. My heart says Cyclones but the brain says Cal in a landslide.

    Me too. Is this correct? If indeed true, I would have expected to have more wins than we have over this time period. Just another indicator that ISU is soft and the program is clearly in/at decline. Where have all the good times gone.

    I think it also indicates that the Big 12 is down, because I would assume at least 6 of those 12 were the 3 home and aways with Kansas.

    I agree. It's just hard to believe when you do factor in Kansas, that ISU has only played 6 other ranked teams in 3 years. We truly have sunk to the level of the competition then.

    Re: McDermott is 0-12 against ranked opponents

    When is the last time we've had a coach with this kind of record against ranked teams? Trickey? God knows it hasn't been in my lifetime (born in '85).


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: McDermott is 0-12 against ranked opponents

    He's 0-13 according to whichever poll ESPN reports (that's the AP I think...)

    Iowa State College Basketball - Cyclones Schedule - Men's Basketball - ESPN

    Kansas wasn't ranked during the Craig Brackins game...looking at that box score makes me want to vomit.

    We've only played one ranked non-con opponent thus far under Greg, #3 Ohio State in 2006.

    0-13 against ranked teams
    2-8 just against the MVC
    3 straight losing seasons

    OUCH, OUCH, OUCH

    And yet we have had 3 players that are sure NBA talent, although 2 were brief (Taylor, Johnson, and Brackins), plus Gilstrap. Many decent teams don't have a single NBA talent and can manage to play tough enough and smart enough to at least be .500 and reach the NCAA occasionally. GMac is driving the program into the ground and he better pull it up quickly.
