    You know what I don't get?

    Glossing over the game prediction thread as compared to the results last night, why are some jumping off the cliff (again)?

    If you predicted a 20 point loss and then lost your mind afterward where is the disconnect? Either you didn't really mean your prediction and just posted it for whatever reason or you meant it but your still emotionally involved and probably not that rational. Amirite?

    Because it is the same boneheaded mistakes we keep making to cost ourselves games. MU didn't capitilize as much as say KU probablly will come Sat.

    Re: You know what I don't get?

    Turnovers? No. Rebounding? Maybe, we got outrebounded by 3 and were hurt on the offensive glass in the first half, but we did some damage of our own on the offensive end. Free throws? Maybe, 12-18 isn't perfect but it's better than usual. Last 5 minutes of the first half? No. First 5 minutes of the second half? No.

    Did they play a perfect game and still lose? No, but is playing the perfect game where the bar is set?

    Of course KU will capitalize better. Their team is a million times better than MU.

    Perhaps everybody who had wrong prediction should run full court dribbling a basketball for 40 minutes with a defender(Every turnover we'll add a minute). So they get a full understanding of what the staff is asking these guys to do.

    Who said that predicting a 20 point loss meant that the 20 point loss, or any loss, isn't painful and full of things to ***** about?

    Last night DG had a steal, went to the other end 1 on 1, missed the layup. Put the ball on the under side of the rim. Guy got the rebound and made an outlet pass. The guy who got the rebound, then ran down court, cut to the basket, got a bounce pass and an uncontested layup. One of many boneheaded plays. That is a 4 point swing.

    The other coaches around the league don't ask their players to do the same? I'm not mad about last night because we were really shorthanded but we don't need the mini-lectures.

    I thought these guys were recurited to play baskeball? I didn't know that Gmac went to Curtis Hall and pulled out 10 students from econ 101 yesterday morning to go play. In that case, they played a hell of a game.

    Things like that are going to happen every game. I know EVERYONE is upset with how things are going but that doesn't give them a permit to act irrationally railing on every aspect of the game. Okay, they don't need a permit to do that, it just makes them look silly.

    As soon as some spend an equal amount of time applauding plays that are made for ISU then by all means go crazy with bagging on every single negative play.

    7 guys and one has mono. Very few other coaches are pushing the full 40min with their guys. And yet our guys continue to fight even though they have numerous reasons not to...wonder why that is.

    Nope...I'll settle for understanding, but it's tough for most to relate.
