    Haven't checked.

    Did the good guys at least win the second half?

    Sounds similar to the situation with Iowa State basketball.

    Agree or disagree glad to see another gunner on here!

    No doubt about it.

    Pollard is now that guy who after drinking way too much must decide if he is going to immediately purge so that he will feel better in the morning or keep it down and prolong the misery for the next day.

    Hopefully he doesn't decide to antagonize the fan base on Twitter.

    Given Prohms ability to achieve program records, I think he could beat the 24 loss mark in a season if we keep him around a couple more years.

    He will get it turned around starting next season.

    Wouldn’t put anything past Prohm. I didn’t think losing to Florida A&M or by 30 points to unranked teams at home was possible before.

    Yes, but I think only because the got some buckets in the end when KSU put in the reserves.

    I can’t remember if it was you or not, but which one of you wrote you wished we wouldn’t have won the big 12 tournament last year.

    Wasn’t me, but I have said we were fortunate Dean Wade was out against us. Much like we were very fortunate Joel Embiid didn’t play us in KC in 2014.

    There is enough sadness and bad things in the world. Why did Steve have to steer Iowa State basketball into the side of an iceberg and let it start sinking too?

    I am still holding out hope for next year. Hopefully next year's freshman class is like the 91-92 freshman class that pulled Johnny's teams out of worse seasons than what Prohm has had this year.

    Guess that depends on how you define "worse". Orr never lost 20 games. The 90-91 team was 12-19, and was 6-8 in conference. So same record and we still have a game to go, only Orr had more conference wins, and didn't lose by 30 at home.

    Correct but in the 89-90 season his regular season w/l percentage was 35.7% compared to Prohm's 37.5% and that season of Orr's saw the two most lopsided losses in Cyclone history Losing by 49 points to Indiana and twice to Kansas once by 43 and once by 33.

    And this bunch had a dramatically bad bottom half of the conference. With a normal year in the Big 12, we aren't getting those 5 wins.

    So if you wanted to compare right now we are 12-19 and as you said in 90-91 season we were 12-19 same record and look at the absolute powerhouses we played those 2 seasons (89-90 and 90-91) since it was still the Big 8.

    Yeah, I remember that year. Lost a ton of talent Johnny was counting on. In different ways that this year of course. Mark Baugh flunks out of school, Sam Mack......well, and Norman Brown didn't pan out. There might have been some others but those are what I remember. Insert Lard for Baugh and THT for Mack and T. Lewis for Brown and that year does mirror this in a few ways.
