    Watching KState is just depressing

    Watching this KState team just depresses me. The same could be said for Missouri and Baylor too. These teams were in no better position than ISU in 2006, but now KState and Baylor are in the Top 25. Missouri is on the fringe of the top 25 and coming off an extremely successful season last year. Oh . . . yeah, and freaking Northern Directional School of Iowa is on the cusp of entering the Top 25.

    No need to finish rant, you know the rest, same old complaining. Next coach please.

    Wait, wait, one more thing. I never post on message boards, just cruise through and read, but now McDermott has done it, he's forced me to post. Hopefully I receive some childish replies, I enjoy those most.

    Re: Watching KState is just depressing

    Has the Kstate coach hit a player yet today? Who built that UNI team and handed off a great program?

    Nice post. I completely agree with everything you said. People act like we should expect it to take years to claw our way out of the hole left when Wayne Morgan got fired, but Baylor got things figured out fairly quick considering the state of their program a few years ago.

    no ****. they actually had a player shot and killed, correct? and a coach that went down in flames after being recorded telling the team to throw the deceased under the bus.

    Should Martin have hit that kid? No.

    Would it be nice to have our coach show a little of the same energy and
    enthusiasm as Martin? Yes.

    And why exactly should I care that UNI of the early 2000s were good? Mac has shown nothing in the way of proving he can develop a quality team in the Big 12.

    There is one excuse after another for why ISU hasn't been able to turn the corner. Will the excuses ever end?

    It has been 7 years since the Baylor mess is that a quick turnaround?

    Re: Watching KState is just depressing

    I halfway root for K-State because of all the hate Frank Martin took on here when he first took the job. Minus the lame fans and purple jerseys, they're an interesting team to watch. I'm not sold on Baylor yet.

    Re: Watching KState is just depressing

    Well, Frank hasn't hit anybody today, but they were doing a pretty good job at making short work of a quality A&M team. I'd be willing to bet that you would like to have Tim Floyd or Larry Eustachy back as a coach, or wish that neither would have left ISU. It's OK, I am in the same boat and we both know neither of them were saints. Reality is that ISU will have one tournament appearance since that era.

    Yes McDermott built UNI to a nice one-and-done tournament team, a nice ISU one-and-done tournament team would be a nice change of pace. There must be something in McDermott's contract that states he gets paid the better part of a million dollars for past successes at his previous employer. That's a good business plan.

    Did I answer your questions appropriately or did I fail miserably while getting paid a pretty salary for previous quesitions answered?

    I agree with you post but I have my doubts about how K-State and Baylor recruit.

    They were in the tourney a couple of years ago, thats when the turnaround happened if you want to put a date on it.

    I agree completely with the original post, these last few years have been frustrating. Oh well, back to hoping we somehow turn this season around. Hopefully we at least show up and play respectable at home against #1 tomorrow.

    Re: Watching KState is just depressing

    I don't think anyone has ever accused Martin's team of not playing hard or not being in the game... Even if it is holiday break.

    I have never seen Frank Martin show postive energy. He makes LE look like a chior boy.

    He was talking about UNI being good, but the fact is Mac stated to get the ball rolling there. Who knows how this season will turn out for ISU, they have yet to play a conference game. This team has 4 loses all to good teams. Lets see how a few conference games go before we get too carried away.

    I think Baylor is legit, but they were so short players they got a lot of talent at once.

    Yes it did 5 years in and one good recuriting class that stayed together and played as a team. Drew has done a good job with that program.
