    Seriously, anyone expecting us to come out of this game with a win had to have been a little jaded to begin with. Kansas State has a clear talent advantage, and despite the fact that our guards have shown absolutely nothing tonight, we outplayed KSU for most of the first half and got close in the second. As the second half progressed, we couldn't keep up, but this could have very easily been a blowout loss for us.

    I will say that aside from some odd subs (as per usual), the game plan was pretty solid. I don't know, but some of you guys seem to like ripping on the players rather than their performance.

    We played over our head against OU, I have no doubt about that (big home crowd, etc.) but I don't think we're at a point where reasonable people, having a knowledge of our team, should get near this pissed about tonight.

    Who is getting worked up. We are ISU, we are not going to be any good at sports. The sooner you all get that, the easier life is.

    All I ever read on here is that Frank Martin is the worst coach in the country. I'm sure many people on here expected a win tonight.

    I don't think a lot of people expected us to win. I think getting up by 8 in the first half got a lot of us excited though.

    Frank Martin is a better coach than Gmac. he has beat him every time. You need to start caring otherwise turn in your gear. Sick of these people who tell everyone to chill out after every loss. Why don't you get some passion for the damn team and hold people accountable.

    Well obviously Frank Martin sucks and doesn't understand that X's & O's are the key to winning in this league.:jimlad:

    I'm pretty sure this is about the first time I've ever done it. I'm not trying to say everything is gonna be ok in the end, I'm trying to say some people have pretty high expectations for one of the bottom 3 teams in the conference in both talent and performance.

    I'd rather go into every game believing we have a chance. You are a horrible fan. Yes, I know you've been to a lot of football games.

    What exactly does that mean - hold people accountable? What are you calling for? Just calling players out?

    Minus Brackins, we have absolutely no talent.

    I wasn't able to watch the whole game, but when I came in we were a point down. I like how they play, but they just haven't been able to SEAL THE DEAL since the Houston game. It's just hard to watch. It's like they have this psychological barrier they're struggling to over come. I don't think it's a talent problem. We've got the guys needed to be at least middle of the pack in the Big 12. I think we have the right coach. I just know that consistently, in the 2nd half, if we're down, and we start to inch closer toward tying or winning the game, this is when the psychology of "oh god, when is the choke" surfaces, which is a psychology that permeates not only the fans, but the team itself.

    After getting kicked in the crotch enough times, you just become numb.

    Just when you think this team is getting better they do this. There needs to be more talent some how some way.

    SO we should just accept it, bend over and take it like a boi? I'll pass...

    Tired of losing, we had our chances tonight (again) and squandered them. This team continues to game after game - tease us. Come close, but foul it up when the game is on the line. It's about the only consistent thing we've done for a few years now.

    Based on coaching credentials, it is not even close. Let's see what GMac can do with average talent. Right now, we are severely below average. Next year is the year I begin to hold GMac completely accountable.

    1. Believe me; you don't want 'Clone fans to "Chill", because the day we do is the day we don't care.

    2. In the MacD era, we play every team close in the 1st half. But then the other coaches figure MacD out, and the second half is a different story....not only the second half, but the last 5 minutes MacD gets out coached*.

    *Unless that coach is Tom Penders

    I am not negative, just disapointed. Wish we could be good, but I still have faith we will be good next year.

    At the end of the day, it's just a game. I came to that realization about 4-5 yrs ago and my blood pressure has thanked me ever since.
