    ISU, because I'm a homer.

    Our games in Ames with Drake get crazy, so I really don't know what to expect. Drake's got some talent, or is supposed to. I expect a thrilling game, and Fred's first real test.

    I can't wait for this game. I consider this our unofficial season opener.

    Re: ISU or Drake?

    I don't think anyone really knows how this is going to pan out. We've looked good against sub-par opponents. After seeing what happened to Iowa today when playing good teams that can shoot, I am nervous about this game. Thankfully, we have experience at the point, but we are going to be relying on some young guys all season. I will not be surprised at any win or loss this season.

    How does everyone think the attendance will be? So far it's been pretty sad, friday against Arizona was decent, but not very loud. Today against Alabama was smaller but louder I thought. Nice to see that it's loud at least if there isnt many people there.

    Well, I know one thing...

    Lucca Staiger will not have a career high against them this year.

    Drake likes to play zone a lot. It'll be interesting to see how they play us and how we'll attack their zone. I don't recall NAU or Alabama State ever going zone.

    That will be interesting. If I were them, I'd consider a modified zone, with someone tight on JVB at all times...sort of a box and one. Scotty could come up big in that scenario, though.

    Two good points there.
    Drake's unadapting zone is the reason that Lucca has something like 75,000 3s against them in two games.

    With the green light our guys have out there, it will be interesting to watch that game develop. I think that we can force them out of the zone, and that should be a good thing for us.

    I will not be surprised at any win or loss this season.

    I wouldn't be surprised at any loss, but I would be VERY surprised to see us win against Kansas, Kansas State, Missouri, or any other top level Big 12 team this season.

    As for Drake, I think we can win, but probably not as easily as this weekend. I will be interested to see this Rayvonte Rice kid I hear so much about.
