    Why does Hamilton not see the floor after the first 5 minutes of the second half? He was in a groove, he neatralized Eglebeater for a little while. But Mac in his infinite wisdom never puts him back on the court, as Eggbeater goes over 20, and some of those points during their run to take the lead late. Dendy was getting owned, and then puts up an airball when the game hangs in the balance...

    coaching....

    Lazy blocking out and lack of hustle. This has to be one of the least hustle teams I have seen. Do they even practice hard. I wonder.

    Seriously Hamilton may have been struggling a bit but Dendy was abysmal. His defense pathetic and he did nothing on offense

    So the rest of the team was doing a good job of blocking out and hustling? Atleast the big Ham was challenging shots.

    O M G!! Are you kidding me! I would say we get smoked at Cal, but we all know that isn't the ISU way. We will be in it to think we could actually beat a good team on the road just to lose in the last 2 minutes. You watch...

    Coach is too busy subbing in order to call the right timeouts.

    This is all very simple - Invirtually every game McDermott gets beat is, we get destroyed by 1 statistic - Offensive Rebounds (feel free to look it up) and it has NOTHING to do with effort or hustle, but has everything to do with Greggie's system - watch the next game - when Brackens or Hamilton or Gilstrap shoots, the rest of the team reatreats faster than the French Army to go play defense. At one point tonight, we were down 14 to 4 on O Rebounds. This loss, and dozens more, fall 100% on the Coaches shoulders. PERIOD!

    I'm glad I backed out on the Duke plans as well! For all the hype of Gilstrap and Brackins in the off-season, we settle for alot of jumpers that any team could get.

    That Dendy shot still KILLS me! No points, and no shots all night, then launches an airball...wow!

    Why not give Pomlee a shot? Nobody could stop anyone inside for UNI or get a stinkin' rebound. Find someone that will GMac. I don't care who it is. Put someone in there that will play physical and grab some rebounds!
