Why are you talking shots at Sherman? Why are you so negative all the time? Indiana State needs more people who are supporting the team and less people complaining all the time. Daveinth, you sir need to take your negative attitude somewhere else!
P.S. Learn how to type! Your lack of capitilzation and end puncutation goes to show your lack of intellegence!!
And its you and people like you whos lack of support and athletic knowledge has run down a program i Have been supporting for 40 years . So think of something more intelligent than YOU DONT CAPITALIZE . If you attended any games what so ever you would know what i am talking about John Sherman goes out in the middle of the court YELLS into a microphone trying to get the 800-900 people in attendance to make some noise . Again its the people who show up to the games not the ones who just buy a ticket who are supporting the program . If these people cant take negative criticism they they need to find another line of work.
Sherman hasn't been doing the timeouts for last couple of games. In all fairness to John, trying to pump up the crowd with the way we've played this season would NOT be an easy job, and him yelling to get us pumped up just sounded all the more useless in the morgue-like atmosphere of the arena. And that atmosphere was NOT his fault, it was a direct result of the play of the team. Sounds like that is getting corrected.
I believe that if we had a mostly full house every game, and the team was kicking butt on a regular basis, John's schtick would be GREAT. It just doesn't fit in a funeral home like we play in right now...:bigsmile:
I guess I'm the only one who found the Bradley video pretty funny...in a non-mocking sorta way. More power to 'em.
As for posting on this board....I prefer to read posts that are not negative.
I go out of my way to NOT READ anything by Bob Kravitz in the Indy Star because I know that EVERY single article he writes is either completely negative or hints at negativity...and usually the former.
As for grammar and spelling...talk about a pet peeve of mine. There are too many folks who post here who don't know the difference between there, they're, and their. Or by stating that, am I just sounding negative?
What about the adage...if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it? Sure there's gonna be times when people disagree with the way a certain player plays...the way a certain coach runs the game...the way a PA announcer yells...the way a AD hires. But guys like Daveinth and Morgan have YET to post something remotely positive. Though they claim to be big Sycamore fans and I don't deny that they very well could be, I still find it to be an odd way of showing it by constantly coming on the board to piss on anything ISU blue.
I also agree!!!!!!!What about the adage...if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it?

I am not a negative person I am one of the most positive people in the world. I enjoy everything about Indiana State Athletics. However that being said if anyone believes these boards are designed to just be positive about losing consistently is living in a fantasy land. I personally like most of the players we have. I personally feel like Coach McKenna can do a good job. My feelings are the likes of the assistants they have in place. It’s the assistants’ jobs to scout the teams we are playing and draw up a game plan. Until Saturdays game we have not had that. On Saturday there was a fantastic game plan and executed it and if you look at my post I commented on how we finally had a game plan. Look at college programs who have boards like this and you will find that people are critical of every program in the country. Being critical is not necessarily negative. I want to see this program back to the front of the MVC. I enjoyed watching the video and if you look at my post it was making light of the Bradley players doing it. Yes I did crack a joke about Sherman and from now on I will no longer allow my personal feelings out about him. However I will continue to judge the program as to how it is being run. Sorry if this is not what you want to hear but all is not peachy in candy land. A 4-27 record may be acceptable to some but it is not acceptable to me, I will not sit by and bite my tongue or accept Status Quo.
I never said that you shouldn't or couldn't voice your opinion when you're upset w/ how things are going but would it hurt to throw in something remotely positive from time to time. You mention the game plan post...I just read it and yes, that was a positive post.
I am not the board police nor do I want to be. All I can ask is that you choose your words wisely when posting cuz there are players, parents of players, family of coaching staff and potential recruits (and their parents) that read the board. Whether you want to believe it or not fan sentiment could possibly sway a potential recruit to go elsewhere...or come here...or it could make a current player feel unwelcome.
Just a thought...I'm moving on now and going back to lurking.
