    Its been discussed on here before, but our half court offense is hard to watch. Can we get one decent shot out of a half court set? There's no ball movement and we almost always end up with a contested 18 ft shot or a force by CB in the paint. The only time we have any flow on offense is when we are in transition. It is just very hard to watch.

    There's no ball movement to moving players. The ball moves, but the guy it moves to isn't open, since there's so little movement.

    Yeah I don't like the way it is working. I thought this was something the coaches would work on?!?!?!

    No kidding. It's going to be up and down all year. If our 3's arent dropping, we are in deep trouble.

    I wonder what they see when they watch game film? Certainly we are trying to do something right? If we could only call a timeout every possesion to "draw up a play" we might have a chance. How can they be so clueless out there?

    The only half court offense we run is the on ball screen by hamilton which is useless and then pass it to Brackins.

    That sounds like a women's team.

    Ya you're right. We shouldn't be getting negative about something when there isn't anything to be negative about.

    Right. This was a moral victory as were on ESPNU and we only lost by 20 on the road to a team that had just lost. We lose by 20 all the time on the road in football.

    I knew I should have worded that better. I was trying to say we don't have a half court offense without actually saying it. Nevermind, its late and I need to go to bed.

    I was being sarcastic there chief - I was trying to make fun of all you poor souls that seem to think this team is still ok. Our half court offense is non-existent and it's embarrasing.

    Four years in the making.

    Seriously, we cannot beat UNI at their own game.

    Last year Craig was the only one who could score

    This year Craig scores a bit less and Marquis just makes up the difference

    Who knows what the rest of our team does because as far as im concerned when im watchin ISU play its Marquis and Craig...and mac standing on the sidelines telling the press we need to learn how to win....goin on 4 years
