    I don't get it. I just don't see how the wheels fell off so quickly. I'm not freaking out, but this team suddenly has no confidence. Did that OU game crush their confidence that much?

    They've lost to 3 tournament teams with 2 of them being on the road. Everyone needs to settle the **** down. Jesus H. ******.

    Did I not just say I'm not freaking out? Doesn't mean that they're not playing like they've lost all confidence. I understand that they'll lose games, it's HOW they're doing it.

    This is the conference season. This team hasn't gotten worse, the teams we are playing are much, much better. There are no gimmes in the Big 12.

    I kinda hope they drop all the way out of the top 25 to wake them up

    We all jumped the gun on the #1 seed/Final Four talk when ISU was 14-0. This team had not deserved that talk yet and is showing why right now.

    We were probably never really a top 15 team, in retrospect when you look at our wins. We're looking at another high seed year, and first weekend exit, IMO. We still have too many holes on our roster.

    We need a legit big man. We need a shooting guard that can consistently average double figures. And we probably need a little more depth overall to take the next step.

    Starting with the Baylor game we our schedule was/is absolutely brutal, each one could be a potential loss, not necessarily because we aren't a good team but because we play very good competition. We need to find a way to win 3 or 4 of them, we've got 1 so far if this game doesn't go our way.

    They don't need to be woken up. Some of you don't get it. FYI...we may very well start the conference season 3-7. I hope not, but easily could happen.

    Oh, so you're saying they ARE playing with a bunch of confidence then? I guess we're watching different teams.

    Confidence isn't the problem is what we are saying.

    We don't have the guards to compete with these teams. They play hard but in the end we just don't have the guard play. Dorsey-Walker and Naz need to transfer and we might as well just go out and get a couple indian hills guards.

    We have the talent... I think that they are: 1. sick, 2. lost focus or 3. simply aren't so good.

    The big XII has better coaches and players than our non conference schedule. That is why we have fallen off the map.

    Nothings going on... We are just being exposed as not a top 10 team. Probably aren't really a top 25 team in all reality.
