    And you know who you are...

    Coach Fred Hoiberg, for as much of a legend as he deservedly is, will NEVER coach at Iowa State again, and the sooner you dumba$$es can get that through your thick skulls the better.

    Steve Prohm is our coach. He may not have played basketball at Iowa State or be the hometown hero, but he is our coach. And he is a very good coach. Is he perfect or beyond reproach or above criticism? Of course not.

    But he is our coach, and if you cannot support him or the program as long as he coaches, and if you hate him so much that you never post on here after big victories like tonight or against Kansas but take the time to scream for his head after a loss like against KSU, guess what? You are NOT a Cyclone fan and whatever ISU apparel you might own needs to be donated to kids in Africa. Time to be a fan of Iowa State, not a fan of one man.

    Rant over. Had to get it off my chest.

    End of the game could have been cleaner, but glad these guys bounced back the way they did after two hard losses. Not something we always saw in the past.

    Why do we continue to do this to ourselves after every game?

    Win - Prohm is great
    Lose - Prohm sucks

    Gets tiring

    I say enjoy the ride and see where we are at the end of the season. Radical, I know, but worth a shot.

    Love the name calling and the fact folks can't disagree with someone else, whether it be fan, player or coach.
    1. I hope most are past Hoiberg. Hope most are judging Prohm based on just his time here and only that.
    2. Nobody wants to see Iowa State fail, but to imply disagreeing with the coach makes you less of a fan is ridiculous. He has a horrible record in close games and this team almost did it again with turnovers. Glad that wasn't the case, but his name in close games does not get cleared after one game.Please correct me since I couldn't watch the game, but Heft was freaking out before NWB made the jumper because they were once again standing around and not running any offense. A coach must put guys in a position to succeed.
    3. If he isn't above criticism, you can't criticize others for criticizing Prohm, especially when the majority feels like Iowa State let's a game or two slip away. That would make you a hypocrite.
    4.You seem to imply you have a wealth of Iowa State apparel. Why don't you donate $$$ to Africa and cut down on the amount of things you own? Materialism is over rated.

    Calm response over.

    The haters won't crawl out from under thier rock until the next loss.

    Not a single one has the balls to own up to the meth-addled "expertise" they have provided over the past few days.

    I don't do that.

    Like I wrote above, CSP is not infallible. But I do think his big wins definitely outweigh the head scratcher losses so far, and I'm sick of people who continue to cry, whine and pine for Fred to come back never give him an ounce of credit for anything because "He's not Fred!"

    To me, that's what gets old.

    Who's going to start the thread to rant about people who rant about fans who have mild criticisms of Prohm? I swear to God the people you say that want to fire Prohm for Hoiberg 2.0 don't actually exist

    Standing on a soapbox and yelling/cursing/insulting strangers in response to what you perceive to be their overreactions.... is just so 2018. Get over it.

    Let’s just all agree a Hoiberg team wins that game Saturday and a Hoiberg team also loses tonight.

    To the topic, critique is cool. Being upset is fine. All part of being a fan. There’s just a small but dedicated group of posters (most of whom will not post tonight) where it goes well beyond that, likely due to a Fred or TJ fascination.

    Yea I haven’t really seen this either. Figured it was probably made up so someone could get some attention.

    I started doubting him for the first time after the K-State loss. I'll gladly admit I overreacted
