Re: So I'm at this morgue we call Redbird Arena...

FWIW, the reception for the Smithson teams before the game was nice. Radar Gene still looks fantastic. Jeff Wilkins basically laid it out that ISU is doing a terrible job of recognizing some of its greatest players (male and female). Have to agree. Not in Percy Redbird Hall: Billy Lewis (1962 pts in...

So if we have nothing to play for and should be giving guys experience, why is everyone mad when we lose?
I’m not mad that we lose. I’m mad that we suck. Losing is just the icing on the suck cake.
No icing for you.

Re: UNI @ ISU 2/17

6,535 at the game. Last 11 minutes of first half was hard to watch but the second half we played with confidence. I thoight the croen was engaged the second half. I agree with others that Elijah needs to be able to play without worrying he is going to get pulled quckly. He got pulled after 1. A goa...

Re: YAK went after the Michigan job, peeps...

We lost 3 coaches to B10 schools. I think you have to give credit to DM for bringing in coaches that bigger programs covet. Perhaps we should have a little more confidence in the new coaching staff. Maybe the coaches we have now will be recruited by bigger schools as well. Agree. Having two new coa...

Re: @ Bradley

Okay, so if it's okay for Muller to "promote" his assistants to "better" programs so they can move up in the world, is it okay for him to "promote" the McIntosh's and Hawkin's of the world to "better" programs so they can move up? If you argue it's okay for Muller to wish his assistants well, then ...

Re: @ Bradley

When did YAK become John Wooden? I guess I missed all those State Championships he won at Joliet West. I think he’s being overrated by some on here. We tend to overrate two things on this board. The past and the future! We tend to underrate two things on this board. The past and the future. Works b...

Re: Wichita

I wonder how Wichita State fans are feeling about the move, with the American only having 4 good teams (2 great with Wichita State/Cincinnati and 2 good with Temple/Houston). I think they are feeling just fine. They have 3 conference losses and will still be an at-large team regardless. 3 losses in...

I get there are some differences between David and Dimna, but I find hard to believe anyone can make an argument that David has improved since he's been at ISU.
Actually, his baseline jumper has improved dramatically from his frosh season.
