    It will be one of the worst losses we have all year but losing to an NIT team on their floor won’t kill us.

    Two seasons in a row playing hurt? If true I apologize and understand his play.

    Yup...so play as a team and don't force it. We have great talent as a team, use it.

    If you watch him, he’s clearly fighting it.

    Personally I think this program can work its way into blueblood status, or if not close to it...

    Not saying they won't, but they have a long ways to go. Like I said, their individual talent will win us a lot of games, but lose 4-5.

    That will never happen unless we can retain coaches. Since 1994, we’ve had 7 coaches. No blue blood does that.

    So it’ll take a while to get there. You’ll need to be patient.

    I was typing a "fair question" when I realized he likely isn't negligible for a medical redshirt.:(

    Well then I guess it’ll lose us those games. I’m not going to freak out about it.

    Babb is quite simply not an aggressive or confident basketball player. He would quite possibly be a NBA caliber player if he was, but it's just not his personality.

    Wigginton is however. So hopefully they can sort of be like yin and yang together. Between Wigginton, THT and Shayok, I don't think we lack aggressive offensive players.

    The biggest weakness(es) tonight was rebounding and defense.

    Hope is fine.

    Reality is that even in ISU's best recruiting years, they're still way below the blue bloods.

    People are going to overract to this comment, but whatever.

    This team is not nearly as good as opinions seemed to be around here. Are they decent? Absolutely. But as great as its been to see the high-level recruits contributing, and the surprise that Jacobson has been, they are not world beaters. Especially without Wigginton.

    Regardless, we've known Prohm's teams to improve as the year goes on, so getting everybody back, the freshmen more time to develop, and figuring out how the team is gonna look I think will definitely improve things. And even now I still think they are a tourny team, which kinda makes the early season a bit pointless outside of hype.
