    ISU fans, support the players, support the coach and support the program. The wins will come and the wins will come in bunches. I am tired of the negative fan base representing Iowa State on this message board.
    For ISU Men’s Basketball, stability at the top will bring success.
    For the current ISU players, future players and potential recruits. The negative fans that write negative messages do not represent Iowa State. Please don’t read the negative posts. Keep playing hard and representing Iowa State in a positive manner. The wins will come.

    Let's hope he wins a couple more this year.

    I get this nagging feeling that the vocal part of our fan base that is tearing McDermott apart will be doing the same to the next coach three years from now.

    I get the nagging feeling it will still be McD because some AD put some stupid clause in his contract that won't let us get rid of him for financial reasons.

    Still finding it hard to believe that everyone is melting down over this one. Missouri is a really good team, and we took them completely out of their game. This game is disappointing, but in comparison to others, not nearly as much because our defense helped well, and kept us in the game. If shots were falling, this would have been a win. We have been getting beat even when the shots were falling, so I think this is a step forward. But carry on...

    If he is still the coach in 3 years it is because he is winning.

    Cumulative effect, if McDermott had won against the mediocre teams such as Oklahoma and Texas Tech this loss wouldn't feel as bad. As is beating the 2 worst teams in the Big 12 by a combined 4 points hardly inspires any sort of positivism for the direction of the program.

    I can understand that to a certain extent, but I guess I try to take them one at a time. Can't go back to the past, and I'm really looking for progress. I want the kids to improve and gel, and maybe make a run at the NIT if nothing else. They could certainly do that if they keep their heads up.

    I wonder what the commentators will say before the KU game.

    That's giving them far too much credit. "Geaux Tigers" man will be ripping into the new coach if his team isn't up by 40 on the first opponent of the season - closing out the first half...

    Somewhere along the lines of, "After a heartbreaking loss in Columbia, the Cyclones try to rebound against a much tougher opponent in Lawrence, Kansas"

    Hey Greg, its good to see you have access to the internet on the plane back to Ames. Hey if I were you I would want to keep my job too! So why don't you give me some reasons that these wins are going to come in bunches? Just use some stats, trends, or really any data. Whats that Greg? You have none? You haven't beat a ranked team yet? You have horrific player turnover? You have a losing overall record? Well my bad!! Yea I will support.

    What an awful post. Blind faith will turn us into Colorado.

    Your post isn't necessarily a model for great posts. You brought no insight. Basically it was a list of things that have been hashed and rehashed before.

    I do not care. Blind support will ruin this program.
