    Re: Williams Blog: Another tough one

    I'm happy with the effort too, but like others I'm frustrated that we just can't get over this hump and pull out a win for once.

    Overall, good article. C-Willy does it again!

    Some may not want to hear it but please don't stop bringing a positive light to our board. It will be very depressing otherwise.

    Re: Williams Blog: Another tough one

    I've actually been really encouraged with the team since the KU game, and especially the last two games. Given all the adversity and roster turnover they've faced, I'm actually surprised they are still competing as well as they have. They actually seem to be improving and playing more cohesively lately. Now given the personnel deficiencies the Ws haven't been there, but assuming there can be some consistency in the roster for the rest of the season, I wouldn't be surprised to see the Clones finish with 5-6 conference wins and maybe steal 1 in the Big 12 tournament. If that were to happen, it would make me more encouraged about GMac's coaching ability.

    I love the team because their jerseys say "Iowa State" on the front and I think they are a group of real good guys, but come on man, they cant even make lay-ups. You at least have to make your lay-ups. Let's not kid ourselves, Mizzou tried to give us that game, but we didnt take it.

    Re: Williams Blog: Another tough one

    Thanks Chris, great write up. I also have been impressed with the improvements we have made throughout this season. Don't kid ourselves, we had a tough first half of confrense play, and i was very frustrated with the way we gave up at baylor, however, the efort they came back with against k-state, was impressive. Mostly on the defensive side. The mizzou game showed me that we can controle the style of the game. I think Mac does a good job of coachin in practice (look at our rebounding and turnovers - a lot of our turnovers last night were questionable). The lack of coaching in the game is very questionable (walking the ball up and wasting all that time in one of the final possessions). I think this team would really benifit from one more year together, it takes a lot of time to build a program. and i think we're on the correct path, just takes time for them to by into the system, and time to gel.

    If we did get those wins, I would be encourage, but nothing I've seen these past few games makes me think we have the killer instinct we need to put away games.
