    So tired of some of the negative nancies around here.

    We have the most talented team that we've had in a long time.

    We have a ton of potential.

    Royce is a beast and has some amazing passes and dunks. If you can't see his talent and enjoy it, you need not reply to this thread.

    Since someone did this already today, can we complain about this one?

    Random thought, being positive in talk is considered optimistic, but testing positive in most situations is a bad thing.

    Sorry, i didn't see it, but I didn't look too hard as it wasn't on the front page. Apparently there are more negative nancies than positive petes

    We struggled to get it going. It's understandable.

    Ok, so official threads have 3 asterisks before and after the title.

    But what's with the spaces?

    I can't be positive about that.

    :twitcy:

    PS: I heart ISU BB and CFH (gotta keep it positive)

    The stars are artistic license and a bold new direction for this forum.

    I can't be positive about your stubborn, closed-minded refusal to change.

    Other than the Drake loss I've been "OK" with this team. Some early ups and downs should have been expected.

    January 4th is must win for this team if there's any chance of NCAA tourney. Unless something drastic happens because I can't see us winning a ton of games on the road. You better not lose more than once or twice at home in league play. Texas is very mediocre. Gotta have it.

    If you need a "positive" thread you probably had very unrealistic expectations coming into this season. We haven't looked great but this is still a transition period for the program.

    I like the spacing between the asteriks.

    I don't like that each word isn't capitalized like a true official thread.

    Our defense has gotten better. It still isn't where it needs to be, but it is much better than it was one month ago.

    Nope, on the conterary. I believe it's the people that are whining and ******** about us being lazy and how Royce is so bad that had unrealistic expectations. I need a positive thread because I get sick and tired of hearing the sky is falling.

    I think Bubu is turning into a better player. i really like his speed, he seems quicker than anyone else on our team. also Ejim had a really rough start this year. i think i saw him airball 4 or 5 three point attempts, where as compared to last year he actually had a good stroke from there. but after the game last night he looked better than he has all season

    We suck, period. We have more talent than Creighton, and are no where close to being ranked. They are.

    Things are not perfect, but all things considered I am happy. The team is still a pretty inexperienced team. Half our team did not play competitive basketball last year and we are basically trying to create a system from scratch. Practicing together does not create nearly as good of game chemistry and one of the biggest issues this year has been the players are still learning their roles.

    The potential is there to get hot and play really well - I truly believe that if the offense moves the ball and the shooters get hot we can play with anybody in the country. There will be growing pains and teams will exploit the lack of PG but I still think that the team is better off now than what it has been since Tinsley was here. The potential is there - I am not saying great things will happen, but they could and that is more than I could say about a lot of the recent teams.
