  1. Our leading rusher was Adrian Martinez with 525 yards on 133 carries. That needs to be fixed. QB's were 170 - 658 RB's were 300 - 1325 WR's were 20 - 191 Need to find a RB and stick with him. Do you think Iowa made adjustments? Nebraska 1st half 27 carries for 110 yards 2nd half 15 carries for 18 yards Iowa's QB's make Martinez and Smothers look like All Americans.
  2. I'm a glutton for punishment. Here's a look at went wrong in each of our losses Illinois : missed 2 XPT, a safety, a roughing the passer on an interception (Illinois ends up with a TD), a fumble returned for a TD Mistakes cost us 18 points, in an 8 point loss Oklahoma : missed 2 FG's, a blocked XPT returned for 2 points. Mistakes cost us 9 points in a 7 point loss. Michigan State : Defense held MSU without a 1st down in the 2nd half. Punt return for a TD. Interception in OT. Michigan : Fumble with 2 minutes left led to Michigan FG Minnesota : Trip at the 1 yard line on 4th and 1 going for the tie. Missed FG. Missed XPT. Safety Mistakes cost us 13 points in 7 point loss. Purdue : 4 picks including a pick-6. Lose by 5 Ohio State : 2 missed FG's. Lose by 9. Ok with this loss and Michigan Wisconsin : KOR for a TD. 2 Int's leading to 7 points for Wisconsin. Mistakes cost us 14 points in 7 point loss Iowa : Blocked punt for a TD. Safety. 9 points by mistakes in 7 point loss.
  3. I'm at a loss. You have to try to lose games in this fashion. How hard is it to find a coach that tells the players to block a defensive player on a punt? We didn't even touch the guy!!
  4. I'm a defensive first guy. However, if we can't figure out how to shoot from 3 in games, this is going to be a long season.
  5. I'm going to put more on Moos. Miles didn't give Eichorst much chance to have faith in him. He went 13 - 18, 16 - 18, and 12 - 19 in his 3 years before Eichorst was fired. I'm almost certain Moos was set to fire Miles, and then he goes 22 - 11, and 13-5. You can't fire a coach after that record. Not only that, but he probably should have received a 2 year extension. This led to losing Kenya, which in turn led to losing Xavier Johnson. If Johnson came here, maybe we withstand the blow of losing Copeland, and make it to the NCAA tournament run, and bring in a new core of solid recruits. Having said all that, Hoiberg was a huge hire, given his Iowa State run. I really don't fault Moos for that hire. No one thought we would be in year 3, losing to 200 + Ken Pom teams, or taken to the wire against some 200 + teams.
  6. He's pretty much like AM2. He does enough good things to keep us in games, and enough bad things to keep the other team in games.
  7. Boyd only plays 10 mins in the 2nd half? Thanks goes to Tennessee State coach for not playing him more.
  8. We have ZERO basketball smarts. Stupid shots, stupid passes. Stupid decisions.
  9. I don't see us winning this game. If we lose, It might be time to rethink the Hoiberg experiment.
  10. Against D-1, Tennessee State's opponents have shot 104 free throws in 3 games. We have 8 at halftime, and we combine that with 3 - 14 shooting from 3.
  11. I'm waiting for the shooting to come around. I have a feeling it's not happening.
  12. The sad part is it's their best 3 point shooter. Under no circumstance should that guy be left open.
  13. This team is not going to win a game in conference. We are something awful.
  14. This team has allowed 83 free throw attempts in their last 2 games against D-1 teams. We have 6. These refs must have reservations somewhere, letting a lot of contact go.
  15. Possibly our best 1st half of the season. We realize our 3's aren't falling. Not forcing anything, and pounding into the paint. Verge still has moments of dribbling. However, he has tried to distribute more. Bryce has 13 and 8. 7 - 7 from the line. Exactly what this team needs right now. A couple get right games. Need to continue to take care of these buy games up until NC State.
  16. 1 - 14 from 3 still up 11, but 20 points in the paint.
  17. It doesn't help we don't have good on the ball defenders. It depends on the team. Going through the play-by-play In the paint Western Illinois 21 - 36 (58.3 %) 42 points Sam Houston State 12 - 25 (48.0%) 24 points Creighton 17 - 33 (51.5 %) 34 points Idaho State 7 - 13 (53.8 %) 14 points Total 57 - 107 (53.3 %) From 3 Western Illinois 9 - 33 (27.3 %) 27 points Sam Houston State 9 - 30 (30.0 %) 27 points Creighton 10 - 23 (43.5 %) 30 points Idaho State 12 - 37 (32.4 %) 36 points Total 40 - 123 (32.5 %) From 2 outside the paint Western Illinois 0 - 8 (0.0 %) Sam Houston State 3 - 9 (33.3%) Creighton 1 - 4 (25.0%) Idaho State 1 - 1 (100.0 %) Total 5 - 22 (22.7 %) If the other team takes 60 FGA and we force them to shoot 3's 3 Pt FGA 35 33 % shooting 12 makes 36 points Paint Att. 20 55 % shooting 11 makes 22 points Outside Paint 5 25 % shooting 1 make 2 points If the other team takes 60 FGA and we stop the 3 3 Pt FGA 20 33 % shooting 7 makes 21 points Paint Att. 35 55 % shooting 19 makes 38 points Outside Paint 5 25 % shooting 1 make 2 points If the other team takes 60 FGA and they take equal 3's and paint shots 3 Pt FGA 27 33 % shooting 9 makes 27 points Paint Att. 27 55 % shooting 15 makes 30 points Outside paint 6 25% shooting 2 makes 4 points It comes down to what the opposition does well and stop that. The other part is we are a below average defensive team. We have no one inside to stop the other team's post. Walker is too small. Bridenbach can't play defense without fouling. Andre is not strong enough. We have no good on ball defenders. Unless Bryce gets better on defense, he might have to stay in school another year. He plays too straight up, and it allows the ball handler to blow by him. Same with Verge. I forgot to mention, our lack of rebounding, doesn't help. It gives teams more shots.
