    not a good comparison at all. Having good form doesn’t help out anyone if the shot doesn’t fall. Boxing out your guy used to give our taller more athletic guards a rebounding edge or at least keep us respectable.

    It appears prohm is looking for absolutely any reason to keep throwing Jacobson and Nixon out there to the point that he was crapping on other players. He has wasted so many minutes on them but when they finally don’t have a terrible game it still won’t be good justification. He really dug himself a hole with a lot of people by backing those two and completely crapping on lewis, to the point where know nothings who “know people” were telling us lewis will never contribute at ISU

    Prohm has demonstrated zero ability to manage lineups. And it is showing again.

    I get frustrated that we continue to shoot so many 3s when we have half a season of data to show we absolutely suck at making them. Contested, wide open, it doesn’t matter. It is insane that this team continues to shoot 25+ 3s per game...

    They have no choice but to jack threes all game when they don’t run a resemblance of offense that could give them better looks.

    It really is poor timing to have espn+ launch, Pollard's big project, a new sports fm station in Des Moines, and maybe even a conference reorganization in the next 5 years while the basketball program is fading. Would be a bad time for fan interest to fade. At least the football team is better than ever.

    Every coach has some years that make you scratch your head about why the team is not playing better. Just look at UNC and coach Roy Williams, identical record as ISU and I think it is safe to say has more talent on it's roster. Does this make Roy a bad coach?

    It took 31 years for Roy to have a team that bad. Prohm will have already done it twice in 5 years.

    Does anyone have an idea what type of team Prohm wants to have? After 5 years I still have no idea what he wants his team to look like. I wonder if he knows what his preferred style of basketball is.

    No, but I am comparing the talent levels at the two schools and trying to point out the overreaction some on this board some seem to have. I could also point out that many of these same Prohm haters, constantly talk about how bad a coach the TOE has, yet surprisingly they have a ranked team this year in spite of the coach. It just gets tiresome, the constant "chicken little" syndrome. Just because someone posts constantly, does not mean they know what they are talking about.

    A basketball team in the 21st century is not going to give up open looks from 3. They have a lot of open looks for obvious reasons.

    Mad Fran has been there for 10 years. Not having continuity with coaches really hurts a program.
