Re: I haven't been this bored with redbird basketball in a long time.

As pissed off and disappointed as I am in this season, I can't help but think this is an aberration. Sometimes the cosmic tumblers align and the chemistry gels so well for a team that is gives you last season's Loyola Ramblers. Conversely, sometimes the basketball gods & the chemistry are just so o...

Re: @ UNI, 2/13/19, 7 pm, ESPN+

A loss Saturday and we are Thursday night club. BU and Valpo will have the tie breaker on us. This team may not be the worst ISU team in the last 40 years, but it certainly is #1 in pathetically underachieving. Players, coach, everyone. I can’t go Saturday for my own health reasons as I will puke m...

Re: Muller and Lyons

Lyons - I honestly know enough about how the University works (I am no insider) that it’s hard to lay a lot of the lack of progress at Larry’s feet. The University has a strong anti sports culture on the academic side of things. Bowman had a hell of fight against those who even today would rather u...

Re: #14 seed

Guys - I know we all like watching our MVC basketball, but I recommend to you all to watch basketball outside of the MVC. It may be eye opening. Sadly, the MVC is CRAP right now. Most teams don't have a big man over 6-7 who can walk and chew gum. If the NCAA is really devoted to the NET rating syst...

You fire Dan you are looking at minimum 3 years before we are competitive again. I'm not ok with that.

To everyone calling for HCDM to be fired or bought out, we as fans were singing his praises for winning close games when Paris and Tony were seniors. The Birds were the first team left out of the big dance that year. Same coach. I love the guys on this team, but they have shown they do not have tha...

Re: @ Missouri St - 3 pm - ESPN3

If my choices are Negative Nellie or Positive Pansy, intellectual honesty dictates the former IMO. That said, I want this season to last as long as possible. Bet it’s with another loss on Sunday. I prefer Redbird realists. And Brick is spot on. Our guys must have felt like crap after last night. To...

I just read we gave up 14 points in the final 1:51. That’s pretty amazing.

Up 58 to 54 with 1:45 to go
Reminds me of the Indiana State game 7-10 years ago when Tuttle? nailed a few threes.

Re: @ Missouri St - 3 pm - ESPN3

So COY doesn't count? I'm pretty sure it does in Lyons' and Dietz's eyes. When Lyons and Dietz get an indoor practice facility built I might care what they think. ISU athletics can’t win in mid-major football or a low major basketball conference. Considering they hold the purse strings in relation ...

Re: @ Missouri St - 3 pm - ESPN3

You know damn well that if he didn't call a timeout and the same thing happened, you'd be complaining about not calling a timeout. I'm not defending Dan, just pointing something you know is true. Would be better of just inbounding the ball instead of letting Dana draw up his defense. Dan could have...

Re: @ Missouri St - 3 pm - ESPN3

I appreciate Dan’s contributions to this program and will always be a fan, but at this point, the program is not improving. He’s recruiting these players who can’t execute late in games. That BLOB Is inexcusable, as is calling a timeout to allow the defense to set up whatever defense they want. I e...

Very good point! Unfortunately if we had made the tournament the past couple seasons that wouldn’t keep him here! A very good source says he has a $50,000 buyout on his end! Meaning if something better comes along he pays $50,000 to walk! Lyons sounds like the master negotiator! Exactly!!!!! Winnin...

Who are these "we love Dan Muller" people, gobirds85? Show me a post where that is stated. Even one really positive towards the coach. You guys putting him down at every turn are very clear. That's for sure. But just because you don't hate him, doesn't mean someone loves him. Ok, how about the “we ...

Someone fill me in! Last time I looked we were up 6 with 2:30 to go! Someone told me Muller called a timeout before we inbounded the ball on the Chastain TO? Why waste that timeout? Couldn’t we save that for in the event we can’t get the ball in?


I wasn’t able to watch the game!
