    Maybe ND is pretty good and Cal had a cold start. Im not confident yet.

    5 points though? If you are that cold you should be changing your name from Golden Bears to Polar Bears.

    If we take care of business on Wednesday, hopefully Hilton is rocking for the game on Saturday. Could be the loudest non-conference home game in a long time.

    Not such a bad thing at all to be let down....means we actually have expectations for our team.

    Re: Cal scores only 5 points in 1st half against ND

    Cal's cold start in a game versus a solid ND team really provides no in depth analysis as to how they will perform in Hilton on Saturday. If anything, a 5 point half should simply be a statistical outlier that would be thrown out if you were analyzing their team's past performances and predicting their future abilities.

    They have poor shooting performances thus far - probably weighed down by that half - but they have also played 4 quality opponents. Cal will be the best team we face out of our first 8 games. Being at home is the only reason we will be favored vs Cal and not @ UNI.

    i've said it before and i'll say it again: the transitive property doesn't work in sports. let's just focus on UNI for now.

    I expect a first half shutout. Anything less, I'll be disappointed and start to question the direction of our program.

    Good thing Fred never fails.

    Question: When we shut them out in the first half on Saturday, will the students chant "Single Digits" when they finally do score, halfway through the 2nd half?

    Will the pep band play "Welcome to the Jungle" with new lyrics that say "Welcome to the Scoreboard?"


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

    Although the 5 point half is historically bad I suppose you could write it off as an anomaly. However, they also have a 12 point second half vs. BC this weekend. Clearly they have some tremendous cold streaks. I have no idea how good BC is but at this point it will be a bummer if Fred can't use those games to get our guys ready enough to win this one.


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    I'd take a atmosphere like the non-conference game against Virginia in 2004 I believe. That Stinson to Blalock to Clark dunk was easily the best play I've seen in person.
