    I normally stay away from the boards for a while after an ISU loss because I cannot stand all of the meltdown crap around here but today I could just not resist. ISU is 6-2 and people are posting around here like we have not won a game all year. ARE YOU FOR REAL???

    Both the football and basketball teams are young, and therefore are going to be inconsistent. Yes, last night we lost a game that we should have won. It's going to happen more than most people can handle this year. However, we are also probably going to beat a couple of teams that we shouldn't.

    This whole thing about calling for a coaches head, or even Pollards for that matter, after every loss is getting a little rediculous. My guess is that 99.9% of people on this board have never been a college coach in any sport and have no idea what it takes to build a winning program. Anyone that thought that GMac and Chiz were going to come in from day 1 and make us a national title contender in 5 years is smoking some bad stuff.

    Ok, I think I am settling down now...

    Yep, people need to just let it go. We lost a tough game we shouldn't have. Almost all of our games are going to be like this. They are going to come down to the wire and if we can stay focused and play tough, we'll win. If we stumble and play foolish like last night, we'll lose.

    I think we should leave the Big 12 and go to the MVC conf....wait!

    Ok, ok. Let's cancel summer leagues, they have to be the problem.

    While we're at it, let's fire the coach, the AD, the university president, and his secretary. Then let's tear down Hilton cause the magic is dead.

    If we moved to the MVC we might never win a game...

    Yep, let's blame the Secretary - after all, Angie DID say she'd like to pound Maggie Gyllenhall with a bag of nickels during The Dark Knight... :laugh:

    Bummer. That sucks, we were soooo close to winning. We'll get them next time.

    It's OK to be disappointed with a loss, but calling for someone to be fired after each loss is crossing some line.

    It's like there aren't any Cubs fans here...

    Drake was good last year. The year before they were barely .500 and this year they probably won't get to the postseason. I get really tired of the meltdown threads as well but there is a real lack of hope with this program right now and it's not just confined to this board.
