    Watch the Press Conference...

    On http://www.cyclones.com

    You can tell these guys and our coach really wanted this one. It's really a shame that we've come to this situation. I think it's time for McDermott to go, but I'm really glad I'm not the one who has to sit down with him and take care of it. He's a genuine guy, and I really appreciate his efforts here at Iowa State.

    It's just unfortunate that it didn't work out.

    I'll agree with all of that.

    Re: Watch the Press Conference...

    Agreed. It's been hard to watch...they all want to win, but there is just something missing, and it has been missing for quite some time. I feel terrible for the players especially, they've busted their ***** and have seen very little reward for it.

    And I agree, everyone should watch this. If you question what this game, and what winning means to these players, this video shows how much they hate to lose.

    We have talent on this team, the team is just not coached right. No one likes to lose and it sucks for these players, but seriously this team is soft.

    I left a post on the post game thread saying this team plays hard, and wants to win. I just wanted to get that out to show I agree with everyone who has posted on this...so far.

    I quoted this post, because while I agree guard play is key, I put the overall onus on 'in-game, situational' coaching. This team chokes on a regular basis, and it's not due to a lack of trying. It's execution that is lacking.

    This.

    It doesn't make me happy to say this, but these players (and staff) have learned how to lose and have a losing mentality.

    Re: Watch the Press Conference...

    As much as this season has been a pain for fans I can't even begin to imagine the wear a tear it does on those young men. The one thing I really agree with that coach said was it is hard to loose that type of game compared to getting completely blown out.

    Re: Watch the Press Conference...

    It is a tough conference game in and game out you do not show up to play the whole game this is what happens, I feel bad for them, but lets face it that game was there for our taking and they did not take it.

    Re: Watch the Press Conference...

    That was painful to watch. You have to feel for those players. Greg is a stand up, class act guy, but I'm afraid the quote, "I didn't get it done" is going to be his legacy here.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: Watch the Press Conference...

    As a coach you put players in position to win not to choke game in and game out. Good guard play really hurts this team as well, but ultimately it is the coach who needs to make crucial adjustments at crucial times in the game and that does not happen.
