    does anyone feel bad for our players

    I mean we dont have much coming back, diante garret wont be any different, Dendy is a solid defender but it wont be hard to stop him, just foul him put him on the line, Scotty love the heart but he's not a big 12 starting guard, who do we have?

    I wonder if anyone gets sick of losing and it wont change next year we might win 6 games

    Re: does anyone feel bad for our players

    I do. Especially when this is what we have representing themselves as "fans".

    You pretend to post a thread feeling sorry for the players, just so you can slam them in turn.

    Sad.

    Edit: I should have quoted. My post is squarely directed at the OP...

    By the way, I won't pad your credit total by responding to you again.

    Oh, where should I start?

    How about wins. I will take the over on 6 for $2,000

    On Diante-I don't care if he is any different, he was good enough for us to win more games this year, probably 6 more.

    On Dendy-You're wrong. He is not a solid defender. He makes great plays but he is sometimes slow to rotate and is not in good position. That should improve next year as he will have more experience in the Big 12.

    On Scotty-Take a look at his last few games when he was healthy. I would say that is Big 12 caliber. I refuse to judge his future on a season in which he was sick a very large portion not to mention that this was his first season of playing significant D-1 ball. When he was healthy he was more than sufficient.

    I'm not saying we will be good next year but there are some bright spots on this team. It is people like you who make this stuff a lot bigger than it is. You make next year look terrible and we don't even know who all will be on the team.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.

    I feel sorry for the players because of crap like this.

    DG greatly improved through out the year and in the last five games was pretty damn good. We don't beat KSU without his play. He can and will continue to improve and in case you missed it he was playing against two of the better guards in the country. He finished stronger, developed the 10-12 foot jumper, and he shot 35% from three up from 22% from last year.

    Dendy also improved towards the end of the season. With his personal issues, Gma dieing and the subsequent time he missed due to poor communication, the last month was his only consistent time with practice and on the floor. If you didn't see improvement you are blind. Doubt people will go Shaquille defense on him. He has all off season to work on FT. But yeah, he can't improve.

    Scotty didn't see regular minutes until he had mono so I am not sure how anyone can claim "he's not a big 12 starting guard." You really haven't seen him healthy and even as he got healthier, he still wasn't practicing. Even sick he played solid defense. But yeah, he couldn't play any better healthy and praciticing consistently.

    Colvin was a true frosh who showed signs of being very, very good. I am guessing you think he won't improve either

    Quite honestly this is the worst post I have seen on here in a long time and that is saying something considering the state of the program and the crazy things people have posted

    im guessing he meant 6 big 12 wins, and if he didnt, ill take the over as well... if he was talking strictly big 12, then history is on his side.

    Really, there isn't much of a difference between 6 wins and 11. Both puts us solidly in last place in the Big12, by a mile.

    Re: does anyone feel bad for our players

    No, I do not feel bad. They are basically getting paid $50,000 to play a GAME. Outside of being a student it is all they should be focusing on. Well, IF and it's a big IF, they want to get better as a player. Some have put the time and effort into doing that in the past. A few. Not as many as are needed to put a better product on the floor.


    NHL teams need to be added to the favorite teams section.

    No it is their chance to step up and make something happen. It is their chance to step up and be team leaders. It is their chance to make a name for themself in the ISU history books and in the minds of fans.

    Re: does anyone feel bad for our players

    Sorry I don't really feel sorry for them.

    College athletes go to school for a scholarship. Majority of them don't go pro in anything. They get a degree and go out to the workforce. They get a SCHOLARSHIP to play sports and represent a school. This is very similar to work studies or somebody getting a job to pay for school at the same time.

    College athletics = job

    So? Do you expect people to feel sorry for you at your job? I mean you picked your job and career, just like these players picked their school to play sports. If your job sucked day in and day out, maybe you should get another job.

    It is a LOT more than $50,000. Tuition alone out of state is nearly $20,000 per year if I remember right, and that's only tuition. No housing, food, etc. They're getting more than double that. MBB players that don't live at Freddy get $500+ each month for housing (anything over the rate at Freddy they have to pay for). They're easily going into 6 digits.
