Why would it? One bad game doesn't change a thing. Iowa will still be a darkhorse B1G championship contender, and Iowa State will be lucky to make the NIT.
If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls
Her next story... Aliens kidnapped her and stole the ticket to fund their trip
back to planet X.
1. You allegedly have the winning ticket for a half a billion dollar jackpot. You know it was the winning ticket allegedly because it was in your possession after the drawing and you have confirmed it matched the winning numbers. Would you not guard that ticket with your life?
2. You are the "ticket pool" caretaker for the local McDonald's. You end up with the winning ticket but you allege that it was a personal ticket and not a ticket that was in the McDonald's pool. If you can produce the winning ticket do you actually think that the member's of your ticket pool are going to buy the story that you are telling?
If the first scenario is true then this lady is the biggest moron on the planet.
If the second scenario is true then this lady is going to get sued for millions of dollars by her coworkers.

I think she was a phony from the start. She was on local news saying she had won it, but wouldnt produce any sort of proof... all while fighting with her mcdonalds co-workers about the ticket, as she had apparently purhased a lot of tickets for them.... and they thought she was holding out.
I think she just wanted to feel famous for a short time.
