    I'm proud of the Cyclones effort tonight!

    Our guys gave 100%, played their guts out, played hurt and never quit. I'm proud of all of their efforts and want to let them know we appreciate how hard they played. If you don't feel good to be a Cyclone tonight, I feel sorry for you.

    I'm proud of the effort but I guess I'm confused about all the moral victory posts tonight.

    With ya. I hope they can somehow find a way to take that energy and that effort to give it the same thing every night - not just when we are playing the #1 team in the country. If they do they will still have some good games in them and may be able to get some good wins in the B12.

    That 1st half of basketball was the most fun I have had watching this team in a LONG time. Too bad we couldn't hanlde the full court press, otherwise I'm sure we are talking about an upset right now.

    I agree completely. Usually teams that play that hard are rewarded with some upsets and some big victories throughout the season. Can't wait to see them.

    Agree! We just hit a couple of those 3's in the 2nd half and we're more than in this game with a heck of chance to win at the end. Sure could have used Colvin. The legs got a little rubbery toward the end and the shots wouldn't fall.

    Re: I'm proud of the Cyclones effort tonight!

    That is the way I thought this team would look from the start of the season. People ripped me this week when I said this team can play with anyone when they want to. They just need to figure out how to play a full 40 mins. I hope they play like this the rest of the season.

    I agree, it was fun a lot of the way and hopefully the team found their collective heart tonight.

    I don't call it a moral victory...just recognize a great effort. I can tell you the players don't count it as a moral victory. They smell a chance for a great win, and couldn't quite get it. This will make them hungrier. They played their hearts out.

    At some point we as fans have to stop being so damn negative and start getting positive about this team. Moral victory's at this point is important. I don't give a damn what anyone say's. Let's get excited about this good effort tonight...let's get excited about this team finally doing some things we've been looking for since the Drake game. Let's not get all uppity about what really is a good loss against the #1 team in the country.

    Wow, a great post. Well said. And the game was a blast to watch.

    It was a learning experence. This game shows what happens when everyone trusts everyone else and listens to coach. A few times tonight I saw players looking at the bench to be sure they knew what they were to do. They acted like they wanted to win and busted their ***. Maybe the things that have happened to this team over the past week have helped this team. Maybe Mac is starting to be a little harder on them. Maybe they understand what it takes. Maybe they are all on the same page now. Maybe none of it.

    Mac got outcoached the first few minutes of the second half which cost us the game. Still a great effort though.

    Both very valid. My wife asked if I felt good about a close loss to the #1 one team and I spent the next 10 min. breaking down why moral victories are meaningless and how we now would have to go 11-5 instead of 10-6 to have a chance at the NCAA's. Truthfuly it didn't even register that this loss would make the team that more hungry. Here's to going to NE and starting a solid run into the Big XII

    Re: I'm proud of the Cyclones effort tonight!

    I agree that was one of the most exciting halfs of basketball that I have seen in my time here at Iowa State. Its amazing to hear how loud Hilton gets when the old people stand most of the half.
