    Walker being a positive surprise would go a long ways towards being good next year!

    But you’re right. Will the returning rotation guys (plus Johnson) improve? Will 65 learn how to play good team defense? If not, it’s tough to see the freshmen doing so.

    I’m worried that the culture needs to change. How does that happen?

    I'd settle for walker being able to dribble the ball up the court and make basic passes without turning the ball over. That'd be an improvement over our post-tyrese efforts.

    Absolutely and I hate to be the one to say it but MJ and Nixon will end up being addition by subtraction too. MJ plays hard but he isn't quick enough to play the 4 and way too small to play the 5. Nixon is pretty self explanatory.

    Maybe you’re right, but at the same time, doesn’t make one feel great about this staff! Hopefully they never have another year in which they don’t have a small ball 4 and they avoid allowing guys like Nixon to have such prominent roles going forward. What a messed up roster this year!

    Does anyone want to bring up how poor Texas Tech has been down the stretch and the fact that they might miss the tournament if they end up losing to Texas? They've lost 4 in a row, 5 out of their last 7 including games to Texas, OU, and Oklahoma State..

    No, because that makes no sense to bring up in this thread?

    I just thought it'd provide a little bit of perspective but I guess not.

    We lost to Tech by an average of 25 points this year.

    If anything Tech's slide shows that it's a down year for the conference outside of Kansas/Baylor as well as how poorly we've played against said down conference opponents.

    To me it feels like cyclone basketball is the 30-handicap golfer and everyone is debating the finer points of the golf swing or proper course strategy, when in reality we need to learn to make solid contact, find the fairway, and stop 3 putting.

    Cyclone basketball struggles with defense, rebounding, passing, shooting, etc. We're a million miles away at being good at the basics. We have athletes with size that are 2-3 years into the program...and just aren't that good.

    I just don't think four high school recruits + 8 months changes all that. We need a minor miracle in recruiting this spring, and Prohm has to do some serious soul searching about what kind of coach he wants to be.

    Boy, I bet that kind of finish has their fan base disappointed. Even then they weren't in the running for winning the conference this year like we were last year before our slide happened. I wonder if beating us in Hilton by 30 made them over confident.

    Yeah I think the conference as a whole was a lot better last year than this year, but BU and KU are better than both TTU and KSU. That isn't to say KU or BU won't lose before the title game either because that could definitely happen.

    So it was a bubble team that beat us by infinity at home?

    I think Prohm needs to channel George Costanza.

    Hey Steve, If every coaching instinct you have is wrong, then the opposite would have to be right.

    They faded but they'll likely still at least get in the NIT which is miles better than what ISU did after both had to replace a bunch of good players.

    Yeah they added a lot more than what we added though. #16 recruiting class in the nation, 2 top transfers, and had a few solid pieces returning. Actually reminds me more of the team we had last year a little bit.

    If he goes 7-11 in conference and is retained I'll be the most annoying person on this board. Total up all the trolls on CF and I'd be worse.

    No way. I haven't even begun my "pregame adjustment" threads yet.
    We'll all step up our games. Well, everyone but Prohm.
