    Virginia will be a very good test...

    Viginia handled Oklahoma last night 74-56. Not the Oklahoma of old but December 30 game at Virginia will be a good test.

    And Virginia lost the night before to Washington 107-63! How bad is Oklahoma? Jan 29 in Ames needs to be a W.

    Not really. According to the RPI, Virginia is ranked 163, worse then any other team we have played so far.

    Any road game is going to be a good test, no matter who it's against.

    That doesn't mean squat at this point in the season.

    Re: Virginia will be a very good test...

    We will get "tested" before the Virginia game. UNI, Iowa, and Cal come to mind. Iowa I know is bad but it is a road game.

    I think Virginia plays Witchta state today that will be a good gauge to see how good they are. OU has looked really bad this year.

    Re: Virginia will be a very good test...

    It's amusing (to me) how UVa thumped OU during a tournament when OU lost to Chaminade, which has the link to that notorious Virginia/Sampson upset from '82(?).

    I wanted to say it's ironic, but it's merely a coincidence.

    Virginia is now 3-3 and lost to Wichita State 70-58 tonight. This games needs to be a W for us this year.

    Re: Virginia will be a very good test...

    Our non-conf schedule is turning out even weaker than I thought. Virginia is bad, Cal isn't good, UNI, Drake and Iowa are all not very good.

    We'll probably need 22 wins at least to make the tournament.

    Re: Virginia will be a very good test...

    Behind Cal (who we have at home) UVA will be our toughest test before we get to the conference games.

    I use kenpom.com which I find to be much more accurate than the early season RPI or basically anything else.

    Re: Virginia will be a very good test...

    I still think 20 is the magic number depending on the W's we can get in conference.

    Well there will be at least two Cyclone fans there so maybe that will help-front row even!

    It's looking that way.

    Wichita State is a clear favorite for MVC title, but UVa got exposed vs. Washington which looked pathetic on offense toward the end of the MSU game.

    Any road game is tough, but if this is going to be anything more than an encouraging transition season for ISU, the Virginia game is a litmus test. A loss is no shame, but it looks winnable.

    I can probably live with 2-2 vs UNI/Cal/Iowa/Virginia, if the team continues to play well overall but that's no longer a "best-case" outcome for me.

    Just forgot a few letters here........


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