If Fred is interested in winning any more games this year, he's telling the team right now that if they play like that against a halfway decent Big 12 team, we lose by 20 pts. That is a fact.
Playing like this will get us another win or two tops this season. Hope you are all ok with that!
Seriously... put the kool-aid down. Nobody on this team plays with any pride or heart besides Scotty and McGee IMO. Not even Royce. He looks like he doesn't care in these games we're "supposed" to win by double digits. You can't do that.
Allen is really bad. I'm starting to think that Babb is only good for defense anymore. Ejim might as well sit on the bench if he isn't going to contribute. You get the point. If not for the heart, desire, and pride of Scotty and McGee, we'd really be in a world of hurt.
Ohhh wait... I left out Bubu. He plays with heart and pride too. He's proud to be a Cyclone and it means something to him. I'm not getting that feeling from a lot of these guys. Sorry. I'm just not.
I can only be hopeful that this crazy win can light some kind of fire under these guys and get them going, but I've said that too many times this year already to believe it will happen.
Haha! you still are the champion of asshats on this board.
Read what you just wrote. We won a game we generally played badly, but in the end we finished. About the "bad" team--we won. It was a win we as a young team will take lessons from, and we did finish. Page was pretty heavily defended most of he night, but he has an innate skill and did a good job of getting tough shots off quickly and making them that largely kept OSU in the game.
Remember.. we won. Remember.. Iowa beat a couple good teams in the past two weeks as well that arguably they shouldn't have been in the game with. Same night as us, Nebraska inexplicably beat a ranked Indiana team. Stuff like this happens.

I do not get why fans are complaining about this win. Yes, we "should" have won by double-digits. Yes, OSU is not a good team.
Fact is - we still are not a solid team either and can be very streaky. A win is a win.
In the past 5+ years - this is a game we almost always lose. Control most of the game, get behind in the last few minutes, make a last effort but come up short.
In this one - we did what we needed to to win. I'll take it any day of the week.
One thing we know about this team is we will almost always play up to or down to the level of our competition. Best accept that fact for this season because it's not something that's likely to change overnight.
We need to put you and Clones21 in a steel cage match.
Wrong on this one, a pillow fight would likely take out these 2 *******. Anyway I like Kool-aid, pass me some and put some Jack in it, I havent been this happy about an ISU BBall team since 2001, (2005 irritated me immensely with their streakiness)
