    Try and think of it like this...

    4 straight home games.

    Iowa
    Bradley
    North Dakota
    Houston

    There is no reason..we shouldn't go 4-0. By the looks of it we will have a lot of people doubting that. But if we do...were 10-3.. will we still be complaining just as much?

    They're spread out a little bit, too. I think that will help this team. And the semester being finished, they can spend that time pulling together like they did before this season.

    If we're 10-3, and we've pulled together, shown that we're wanting to be a team and not a bunch of players in the same uniform, then we should be back to the fun expectations, and anything can happen from there!

    Still not as easy as it looked to be early in the year. We've got the talent to win all four. The kids need to regain their confidence, and go back to the basics while playing their butts off. This is certainly a chance for some serious positive momentum.

    This is how I am trying to look at it. And how I want others to look at it. 6-3..is not acceptable.. but I dont see why we cant put a little run together.. and get to 10-3 and exhale a little bit.

    Wonder if the guys got overconfident and thought it would be really easy? I'd say it's possible.

    I agree with everything you said. Nice post.

    As sad as it sounds.. this may play a huge roll in our season these next 4. We cant go 2-2 here. This NEEDS to be 4-0 IMO.

    Re: Next 4

    If Iowa plays like they did vs. Prairie View and we play like we did last night, Iowa will win. If last night 's effort continues, we will be 7-6, Not 10-3 after the next 4 games. Bradley and Houston are not bad, and we all know Iowa will out hustle and out rebound ISU.

    Re: Try and think of it like this...

    I am not upset about the losses. I am upset about the play. No want for players to get open, no want for players to get a rebound, no want for a players to go after a lose ball, no want for players to take a shot, no want for a player to play good D.

    No reason except rebounding and standing around on offense.
