Interesting the other ISU seems to have more interest from fans. They had 250+ posts on their game today…

So, are we going to blame NIL and transfer rules for not being successful? "How do you even succeed in this climate?" Someone has to win the MVC in the same landscape. I bet DeVries, Prohm, Wardle, etc. figure it out. Pedon should be expected to also.
No doubt about it. We should be in the running for a conference championship every year.

Another disappointing game. I will leave it at that.

There are some positives I have seen on the trip though. Knight decided to remove the cement shoes he had on for gym shoes. He has been much quicker these last two games and is gaining confidence.

Burford is fearless. He will take it the hole when he knows the team needs a bucket. He just needs to cut down on the fouls so he can stay on the court.

McChesney is playing with more aggression. There are times he still thinks before he shoots out thinks and then the defender is there an had to pass but there were several times he just let it fly. I would like to see him get a few more touches in the paint.

Sandage is a hustler. I love it. If he keeps playing with this intensity it will run off on the other guys.

Now we just need some others to start stepping up.

I'm glad we loaded up on games early. We need these games to get a lineup and learn how to play under Ryan. I have confidence in Ryan and his ability to completely turn this program around. What I don't have confidence in is the current landscape of NIL and transfer rules...which may not allow a program like ISU to get itself back into a big winner again...due to the potential roster turnover each and every year.

I think coaches at our level are going to have figure out how to win with a group immediately...because every 2 years we could be looking at 12 new kids on the roster., maybe more heaven forbid.

Can Ryan succeed in this climate? How do you even succeed in this climate?

We're probably a .500 team, tops. Which really isn't a surprise here, is it?
Totally agree with this. With the portal the way it is, it seems near impossible to build any kind of brand at the mid major level; unless your “brand” is being a minor league for the P6 teams.
College sports are ruined.
