    Virginia

    Washington is pressuring the heck out of their guards and they continue to cough it up. Although I don't think our backcourt is quite as good as UW, I see us having a similar approach. Virginia wants to slow it down, but Washington continues to push it after made baskets and is having great success. The one bright spot for Virginia is they have a solid big man in Mike Scott - could potentially be a match-up problem.

    This will definitely be a good test for our guys going into the Big 12 portion of the schedule.

    Agree with the contrast in styles, as far as ISU/Washington vs. Virginia's approach.

    As I post this, UW is up 52-31 late in the first half. I was sort of hoping UVa could pull an upset, to lend a level of cred to a future opponent, in case ISU happens to win. And if it's a loss (which many of us projected, being the first true road game of the season), it would be nice if it was a "meaningful loss."

    But Virginia also has Minnesota and VT coming up.

    Now it's 56-31.

    As a fellow Cyclone fan, I appreciate any type of analysis of a future opponent. I hate to say, however, that I can't agree with your assessment. I believe that with DG and Jake really coming into their own and leading this team as well as Egim showing us he can be solid and score points, our back court is going to be light years better that Washington's by the time we play Virginia. I honestly believe they have no chance of beating us and that this team will be a top 15 team by the time conference play rolls around. Buy your NCAA tourny tickets NOW!!!! GO CLONES!!!!

    Hmm..maybe I'm watching different players play. Maybe I'm going over the top about the top 15 things, but this is a damned good football team. I think we are gonna surprise people. And DG should be drafted. Period.

    Okay, I obviously meant basketball team, I've had a few adult beverages today. Other than that tho, what do you disagree with? Tell me you're not impressed with what DG can do now that the has been unleashed by the mayor? Tell me this team doesn't have potential to keep winning games??

    First game out of the state of Iowa and them having a legit big man makes this game a little daunting. Ever since that game in Hawaii a couple years ago, road non-conference games against inferior teams makes me a little uneasy. Hopefully under CFH, that will change.

    Who said they aren't impressed? EVERY CLONE FAN is impressed with how much potential this kid has been hiding for so long and is finally showing. Even with that, he is not good enough to play in the league...PERIOD. Oh, and if Curtis Stinson isn't good enough, DG isn't sniffing the NBA.

    Re: Virginia

    Although the kool aid does taste real good right about now we gotta put down the glass and look at what we've done thus far.
    We beat 3 bad teams by good margins and we beat a decent team in 40 mins and .1 secs of play by 3.
    I do believe that we could go undefeated in the non-conference but I'm not going to raise my hopes to high just yet.
