    I am SO tired

    of underachieving or non-achieving under McDermott. I am a season ticket holder this year. I will not be going to anymore games. To have this record with the talent we have on this team is beyond ridiculous. It is beyond apparent to me that McDermott can not coach a team at this level. Nothing, I repeat, NOTHING, I have seen in 3, repeat THREE, plus years indicates anything other than another craptastic finish. Jamie, please fire Greg before Hilton becomes Carver North.

    When it comes time to renew our season tickets for next season, I do not want to feel like ISU got my money for basketball tickets like this:



    "The bass, the rock,
    The mic, the treble,
    I like my coffee black,
    Just like my metal."

    Hilton is really more west of Carver than north.

    Please your a Bills Fan!! Can you say wide right!!! Fine sit home and watch your Buffalo Bills replays. Do not need your threats. Do you realize the Big Twelve is the toughest conf with 8 teams with 40 or under RPI. Colorado just about beat KU in overtime tonight. Big twelve wins are very tough to get. We are missing quality point guard play. Get a grip Scott Norwoood!!!! They will not be Carver (West) by the way.

    So you're allowed to quit on the team when the tough gets going but they get killed by the fans if they quit?

    Exactly. That's what it's all about.

    If people quit on a team when things get rough, how do you guys deal with real life? Real life is a lot rougher than watching basketball.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    If ISU will pay for my education, housing and food, the least I could do is give 100%. I would gladly not quit if that were the case.

    I doubt they'll do that, though, so I will do as I please. There's no expectation of me as a fan. I can watch if I want, I can go if I want. I can try to forget about this talented team not giving effort, like no other team I've ever watched, if I want.

    That's the beauty of it. When someone makes me waste my time and money to watch and support a game that they play half-assed, I can choose to not be taken for a fool any longer.

    Effort is the one thing that should be a given. If that's not there, we're so far beyond screwed from a player and more importantly a coaching standpoint, it's not even funny.

    If you guys drove an hour and paid a ton of $$ for your kid to go to a sports clinic twice a week, and when you got there he didn't try, would you just keep going?

    If so, you live in a different world than me.

    Actions have consequences in my world and they're taking our support for granted. They're getting more than their giving.

    It's been 4 years now of "tough gets going". When will we finally have a year when we can at least be competitive? Having a losing record overall and a pathetic win percentage against Big XII and other major conference schools (something like .250) is absolutely disturbing.

    I can't blame anyone for not wanting to watch the program they love absolutely implode. The coach doesn't seem to mind and the players don't even look like they are frustrated anymore. We are at the point when apathy is setting in with this team all the way down to the fans. We are becoming Iowa basketball.
