    They started 3 freshman, a soph, and a Junior. Of those, the junior scored the least tonight. They have 1 senior who is not very good, and bring in 2 more players next year. Woodbury, nice he adds some muscle. Could be a beast down low. Jesus, the thought of losing to Hesse guys the next few years is unbearable. Fred better have some studs lined up to compete with these guys, as their youth will only be getting better as the season goes on and they age.

    Fred also appeared to be totally out coached in this one. If Iowa didn't make some boneheaded plays, they would have won by 20! Horrible showing tonight....

    ISU had 15+ TOs and the starting 5 had 3 players score 5 points.....

    The ISU womens team could have beat us tonight.

    But I thought Iowa had too many goofy looking white guys? How can they be good?

    We've got young talent as well, Iowa not even in our conference who cares. Home team should always win this game

    No that team sucks. I'll gladly pound the likes of Purdue, NW, Minny, Illini against them and lay whatever chalk. Don't see many conference wins for them. They deserve credit for wanting it more. They also got a lot of calls when the momentum could have turned (and poor decisions from Lucious to cancel out the good things he did.) Iowa is awful ISU could have been as lazy as they wanted in Hilton and won by 20. In Carver they couldn't pull it off.

    Its really pathetic that a team who has beat noone other than BYU would show such little urgency in a rivalry game. There is nothing Hoiberg could say to these guys they collectively decided at halftime they didn't need to work hard to win a game that was there for the taking since they finished the first on such a good run.

    Fred's transfer idea might start costing him in this series with Iowa going forward? Iowa is VERY young and will only get better over the next few years. I'm not so sure we have much young talent?

    I think Morris and Thomas will be good next year, but not excited about anyone else coming in at all. I think SDW could be good eventually. I actually think SDW could end up being like a Devyn Marble before he's done at ISU.

    But right now, Iowa has a lot better young talent than we do... by far.

    Should, but looking at tonight, won't. Look who we lose after this year.... Now look who they lose. If you had to bet, would you honestly take us straight up over them next year at home? I certainly wouldn't! If they happen to find someone who could make an open 3, it will be even uglier. And rumor has it Jok is looking like his old self again, and his outside shot supposedly looks fantastic! Add in that transfer kid from Wisconsin who also is supposed to be able to knock down the 3, and it just seems like they are going to be a very solid team for the next 3 years at a minimum!

    That isn't one of the BIg Ten's good teams.

    The NW team that just beat Baylor in Waco is much better.

    As is the rest of the conference if you go team by team.

    Their arch rivals somehow decided they didn't need to try in order to win. This mentality was reinforced when ISU was able to lead at halftime despite not trying in the first half.

    McCaffrey got helped by his counterpart not gluing Clyburns *** to the bench.

    A good team would have won by 20-30.

    Fran McCaffery really surprises me as a coach. He is very good. Iowa will be very good in the years to come.

    So if a good team would win by 20-30 points? What does that make a team that wins by 9?

    Why does that surprise you? The guy turned Siena into a borderline top 25 team?

    Agree. That was a horrible game played by ISU and it was a miracle that they held a halftime lead. They continued their ineptitude in the second half. I don't think that game was much of an indicator of how good or bad either team will be in the next few years.

    I don't know.

    If you want to talk about what ifs and that Hawkeyes team we can compare you to a MVC team and debate if you'd beat either Drake or UNI in (doubt it) and how much Creighton would smoke you by. (Wichita St handled you of course.)

    If you want to be compared to teams in your conference see my post above. Lets hear why you'll contend in conference play and what about tonights game reinforces that? Feel free to list Big Ten teams you are better than. You can use the 9 point win over an ISU team who was clearly a class below UNLV and Cincinatti in their early neutral court contests as evidence.

    Purdue- Smacked the Clemson team who housed you (again) around. On the road.
    NW- Just beat the team that ended UK's win streak in their barn.
    Illini-Very good start despite people being down on them
    MSU-Same team as always hawkeyes don't deserve to be mentioned as competition to them.
    Michigan/OSU/Indy- nothing to say
    Minny-tons of talent managed to put a good FSU team in their place
    Wiscy- they would not lose to Iowa they just played real teams early on unlike Iowa who couldn't beat a Wichita St team with all new faces


    Don't worry Rutgers is coming soon you'll have a conference team to look down on...

    I certainly hope you're not talking to me.... I'm not an Iowa fan. Just calling it like I see it tonight, and I see us looking lie we are less talented than them, and they don't lose jack **** after this year. We do however lose a lot!
