    Re: what upcoming win will show that we are for real?

    If we win at UNI I think we are for real. Now, if we win at UNI and at Virginia then watch out. I have raised my expectations from 3-13 in the Big 12 this year to 6-10 based on how well we have been playing. The real question is will this team hit a "wall" in conference season because of lack of depth. Unfortunately, because its in Iowa City I don't see us beating the Hawks this year no matter how bad they are.

    I think a win against Cal will look pretty good. They also got a vote in the AP and ESPN poll. So I think if we can put together a good game against them we will look better.

    Let's beat some good teams before getting expectations high. Some of you guys are getting your hopes up way to early in the season. Beat UNI and at least be competitive against Cal than I could see 4-6 wins in the Big 12.

    Road wins at UNI, Virginia, and Iowa, plus beating Cal would be a good start to getting me excited for Big XII play. Just enjoying how the team is playing right now, they really are exciting.

    Re: what upcoming win will show that we are for real?

    perhaps I am on the koolaide, but this team has chemistry and is having fun, and they have embraced Fred, and they have seen how his methods produce, which just means they will listen even more. He seems to have this team's attention, and sometimes that goes a lot further than talent - example Texas football.

    We all heard how much an upside and talent DG, Scotty, VB had from the previous regime. We are just seeing now A) because they are healthy, and b) the micromanaging coach is gone, and Anderson is such a boost.

    My biggest fear is how we will do against size. That team last night was BIG, and even though they got a few more bunnies than I would like, the team seemed to hold their own for the most part.

    UNI would be a start, Cal would be HUGE.

    Hold their own? I assume you are talking about us when you say that, right?

    If that's the case, we completely owned that team on the glass. Not sure of the exact rebound margin, but I think we were pretty close to +20, while have an equal amount of offensive rebounds.

    there will be ppl on here saying "all of these wins mean nothing" even if we beat kansas state and win 20 games.

    They'll say "these wins mean nothing, its the tournament games that mean something"

    so take it fwiw
