Yep. this basketball season............... has become a court version.......... of the football season. one big disappointment.

And with ISU thumping the Payhawks today, you can probably chalk up 2 extra tics in the loss column ahead.

There is no reason our offensive numbers should be that bad. We may not be the most talented offensive group in the country, but we have individuals with some offensive ability. It’s become psychological at this point. You can tell no one actually thinks their shot is going in.

Yeah, the shooting issues have clearly gotten into their heads. That is painfully obvious on both threes and free throws. The only silver lining is that sort of thing can go away if some of the shots start to drop. One reason it is so important to get Dean back is the psychological lift he can provide.

Plot twist: Amaad Wainwright and Brian Patrick were the keys to our offense flowing last year. Without them, we are now lost.

Bear in mind these numbers include a whole bunch of Dean Wade and Kam Stokes as well.

ISU is the program that we should emulate. Their talent level is way above ours, and their style of play fits their talent. I'm jealous of them. They've beaten KU 6 out of the last 11 games (and had at least one of those stolen from them by officials). Wouldn't that be something that would generate excitement in our program? Instead, we continue to lose to KU, and feel sorry for ourselves.

How does Iowa State find these talented players who can shoot the basketball? And why can't we? This is a subject for an entirely new thread, that I may start soon.
