    Score Comparisons for ISU/Creighton

    I don't put much into these and I'm sure Hoiberg doesn't either, but it is somewhat encouraging to look at the fact that ISU seemed to handle these two opponents better than Creighton

    Creighton vs Alabama State
    71-57
    ISU vs Alabama State
    74-47

    Creighton vs Northern Arizona
    74-70
    ISU vs Northern Arizona
    78-64

    I think what is encouraging is the defense. Not allowing 60 points yet this year. With Iowa losing today ISUs nonconference schedule is looking all the more doable.

    Ummm, 64 is more than 60.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: Score Comparisons for ISU/Creighton

    I like this idea overall. The team is fun to watch. They're willing to make some plays. Some don't work, but they're trying something, and I like that.

    I enjoyed today's DeMarcus Phillips sighting. Really good to see him in there for a few minutes. I think he'll really strengthen the backcourt, just like we all expect him to.

    I didn't see the game so maybe one of our newcomers accidentally scored for the other team twice?

    Why are you accusing only the new guys?

    I agree that we are fun to watch, but I'm still remembering that we were pretty dang fun to watch last year until about the end of November. We were blowing everyone out...no one came within 20 pts. of us until Northwestern. We had a few flashes of success (Houston, Bradley), but it turned pretty ugly about then.

    We will have some big letdowns, but I hope the effort and improvement continues.

    I'm excited for this game, although I wish it was at home and not at Wells Fargo.....

    Of course we'll have letdowns, it's basketball. That happens to everybody.

    We're a much steadier and smarter fun to watch so far this year. Not as many guys looking for highlight-reel stuff. In fact, in the 2 regular-season games, we haven't dunked the ball yet, which is interesting to me. Probably meaningless, but it's interesting.

    These guys seem to play with better chemistry than we've seen in quite a while. I'm still not saying we're a Sweet 16 team. I'm just saying that we have a fun style to watch. It's an interestingly patient uptempo team.

    I hear you, but I remember being a fun, up-tempo team at this time last year. Just reminding people that things can go south fast, and they probably will with a team with inexperienced post players. I just want to see us hustling and giving total effort to the new coach and system...then we can unleash the fury next year.
