    What does MSU do to get some respect for this season? All-American selections, heck even all Big Sky selections were not forth coming, even with conference titles and a semifinal appearance. Why do sites like yours and others think the lack of MSU talent exists, obviously you believe it resides with the other semifinalist teams? Why not the Cats? Last season MSU was heavily decorated and I realize that not every team each year will garner attention but this year seems lacking.
    Maybe it is sour grapes on my end and it shouldn’t be because of another semifinals appearance, undefeated conference season and home win streak is intact. I will take comfort in these facts and not worry about some selections anymore, but need to know what the Cats could do to improve player performance?
