    The team Iowa is killing right now. They are just awful. I mean awful. I'm really not kidding when I think I could start for that team. That's not even a joke. Being dead serious right now. Where the **** does Iowa's AD find these teams?

    First, I doubt they start mall cops.

    Second, I'm guessing they found this team on the eastern shore of Maryland.

    Why would the AD even schedule this? This team needs to be playing Waldorf College.

    They won two game last year. I don't know why Iowa schedules teams that are that mind numbingly terrible. And they wonder why their schedule kept them out of the tourney last year lol

    Iowa would have gotten a better tuneup game from their girls squad.

    I can understand scheduling this team for an exhibition, but a regular season game? This does nothing but hurt Iowa's RPI.

    Iowa's RPI will be fine this year with their much improved OOC SOS.

    It is improved, yes. Have Iowa losing 3 Non-Conference games this year. Don't think they beat ISU at Hilton and I don't think they beat Notre Dame. Also think they lose a game in that Tourney in the Bahamas.

    Ummm, hate to break it to you, but ISU used to play them yearly as well. I think they played Iowa and ISU usually a couple of days apart. Probably best not to complain about them being weak sauce.

    Don't remember the year but probably less then ten years ago; ISU played UMES. It was beat down as well. Maybe during Wayne's era or GMAC.

    Well they need to stop scheduling teams THIS bad. I understand some cupcake games, but this is beyond cupcake.

    If Notre Dame is anything like the tourney version last year, Iowa can beat them. It'll be an ugly game between 2 hustle teams that can't shoot, but it's a possible win.

    Fran doesn't want the team to feel like they can just walk out on the court and win. Hard to make them feel that way when you're playing this team.
