    One stud and a bunch of tomato cans can still rock a good 7-8 guys in basketball.

    I know you know this, but it is not like football where you have to build a "program" with depth up and down the roster to be competitive at the top level.

    Culver is really good. Beard deserves a lot of credit, but he has turned into a monster with elite NBA length in size far beyond what his star rankings intimated.

    There was one clear NBA player on the floor today. It was him.

    At the beginning of the season I think all of us would be happy with 20-11 and 9-9 and a 5 seed in the NCAA's. You negative goobers are acting like we title contenders year in and year out. Sure, we have stumbled as of late, but Prohm also went through a lot of adversity this season that you guys don't want to give credit for. Multiple suspensions, injuries, obviously trying to control lard all while getting true freshmen ready for big 12 play and integrating transfers. He's done a pretty good job. Any ditzworth who is calling for him to be fired needs a little perspective

    This is exactly what I thought after the game as well. Contrast that quote by Campbell with this from Prohm in the post game presser, "I just wanted to make sure everybody understood that if you really do the research and do the math, it’s a pretty good regular season." I'm skeptical that Campbell would say something like that after an extended losing streak.

    Texas Tech clearly was the better team. Iowa State played better, but they continue to struggle. I’m really getting bugged with this teams’ “narrative hasn’t been written” yet crap I’m hearing. Something is seriously amiss that I doubt can change in the post-season tournaments. Prove us wrong instead of talking!

    But Campbell would absolutely stick up for his team. And that's what he's trying to do.

    Campbell didn't come out and say his guys played like **** and almost had the worst loss in Iowa State history against Drake, did he?

    He's been given plenty of chances. He can't defend so he fouls or gets lost.

    I'm not sure you watched very many games.

    Of course not. Nobody would expect him to say that. He didn't white wash it either though.

    This feels like McDoormat 2.0.

    -Coach has a hard time relating to certain players
    -Get's talent but doesn't perform
    -Good guy, but not a good fit
    -Play calling out of TO is terrible

    Being 9-9 at Hilton the last 2-years is unbelievable.

    Not at all. The other poster made a comment that essentially it isn't good to start over so stick with Prohm. My objection is I don't think Prohm can get this program to compete for a big12 title or anything futher due to his limitations as a coach and then people get mad. This season has amplied his shortcomings. I am just calling it as I see it. What is wrong with that?

    He kind of did. He didn't say anything negative about the effort.

    Again, I think Prohm trying to point out to the idiots in our fanbase that the season hasn't been a disaster is about sticking up for his players. He doesn't want them to feel like he thinks they are failures.

    What is "performing" to you? 20 wins and 5-6 in the tourney isn't enough?

    I am confused as to the tone of this post. When I am able, I will post in-game. I do think the players have their issues as well, but I will always look at the coach as a leader. A leader to make adjustments where necessary and motivate kids to max their talent and potential so I look at Prohm first.

    Prohm is about to go to his 3rd tournament in 4 years. McDermott never made the tournament. Bad comparison

    I’d love to hear from Prohm supporters what you feel he does in an above average way other than recruit and be a high character guy. It’s certainly not coaching or managing a team.

    I hardly ever comment here, but people comparing Prohm to McDermott is annoying.

    McDermott's record during his four seasons: 59-69/18-46
    Record during 4th season: 15-17/4-12
    Prohm's record during his four seasons: 80-42/35-37
    Record during 4th season:20-11/9-9
