    Hmmmmm...
    Laugh all you want, but Lansing IS trash. More specifically Hughes bring energy and skill, hasnt put up big numbers aka production. Ill give ya that but who else besides Key has his athleticism...no one. Im not saying he is thw answer, but with most guys out there playing like shit he is a guy that runs the offense doesnt take bad shots and plays smart. Does he make mistakes, sure. But he is the only one i see who has a small leash. I believe he could have been a spark late in the game, or at the very least play give him a shot to make plays. You can pump sunshine up Lansing ass, but i call it like i see it. Fact is seniors we have arnt good, i like that Key is getting PT but i personally believe hughes should too, until proven wrong. I dont really need your input everytime i say something...

    I just dont understand how Lansing isnt on the hot seat.

    Let me help you. Follow these instructions:

    1. Read his contract
    2. Peruse the ISU athletics budget
    3. Do simple math.

    Hes not going anywhere anytime soon unless he wants to. Especially since some of the biggest donors to the program (and ISU athletics) are personal friends of his.

    For anyone questioning Hooper on this, he's 100% right. It would cost roughly $750k to buy him out after this season, or roughly 42% of the last public basketball budget. Not happening. Seat is cooooooold... Burrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. The only time you could see him exit early is if he left for another job or if one of you cuts a VERY large check. Here is what remains on Lansing's contract:

    2017-2018 - $242,980 - $743,340 buyout
    2018-2019 - $247,780 - $505,160 buyout
    2019-2020 - $252,580 - $257,380 buyout
    2020-2021 - $257,380

    If you're a Sycamore basketball fan, your hope is that Lansing can turn the program back into a consistent winner. Otherwise, we'll likely have a new coach in 2021.

    Hard to fault any fans in feeling that way.

    I still watch and give a damn, but wasn't pissed. I think I'm becoming conditioned to lose and that really sucks.

    This post needs to be a "sticky" in every game thread.

    This is pretty much where I am. Still care, but am getting numb to results like this and just refuse to get too upset about it. Not liking that feeling, but it is better than flying off the rails or having my whole day ruined every time we lose.

    I'm as guilty as anyone for being overly-optimistic. But now when I follow the games, reality hits me right in the face.
    1) Our "senior leader" is struggling.
    2) Barnes is just a true SO.
    3) Key and Hughes are FR.
    4) Thomas, hopefully, is making a transition to D1.
    5) We continue to fail to get quality big guys. This has been going on since we became D1, with just a few exceptions. Even our best teams have had barely average or below average centers and short PF's.

    Yes. Our "typical" big. He came in recovering from a serious injury and we usually don't get much from our big guys until Jr-Sr years.

    I think, if Key and Hughes can get up to speed, we might be looking at Davis at the PF in conference play.
