    what are people confident about tonight, and worried about?

    Just wondering

    For me personally im confident that ISU is playing with more confidence due to guard play, i also think ISU is more athletic at almost every position.

    I'm worried that UNI will find its offense against us, normally teams that are struggling whether its football or basketball find their strenghts against ISU

    Either way i think ISU wins 10+ after our run and gun tires out UNI

    go state!!

    I'm not sure if we'll win tonight or not, but I'm not worried. As I said before the Drake game, the program has a new attitude and Drake and UNI will be relegated to Little Brother status again soon enough.

    Confident because they have no one who can guard Ejim. Who they going to put on him? O'rear? Haha. Worried about if UNI gets hot shooting, but i doubt it happens. Still think we win by 15.

    Re: what are people confident about tonight, and worried about?

    i'm worried our interior D will be exposed, that aleghbe finds his shot, that moran gets hot, that koch goes for 20, and that we go cold, struggle on the road, and just have a bad game. road games are never easy.

    Worried about?

    UNI will make us play their game and we won't play ours. We will get stuck playing in a half court offense and struggle to score

    First true game on the road. How will the team respond

    Most confident?

    That we have a coaching staff that keeps making the necessary in game adjustments to give our team a chance

    Re: what are people confident about tonight, and worried about?

    I fear that UNI will find their shot tonight and everything will be falling for them. I'm also a little curious to see how their defense effects our offense.

    Re: what are people confident about tonight, and worried about?

    I'm worried about foul trouble on Ejim or JVB and cold shooting. We'll play hard and guard but I don't know how we'll shoot or react to foul trouble.

    Re: what are people confident about tonight, and worried about?

    I am concerned as well about how bad the Panther shooting has been. That generally averages out in the end. Despite them not having the stellar posts that they have in the past, they are experienced in the post. I have concerns about our posts matching up: defending and rebounding.

    I am confident that Fred will have them ready and that if they lose it will not be because of a lack of effort.

    What will everybody be thinking if we just blow them out all the way through?

    Looks like my worries have all been stated. I'm not worried about anything now. Go State!

    Re: what are people confident about tonight, and worried about?

    Biggest worry is that we have a cold shooting night in the first road test.
    I'm pretty confident that we have an idea of it now, thanks to the WF game.

    I'm confident that we can adjust to whatever they have for us. I think we're ready, but this is going to be a brutal-looking start.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.

    Re: what are people confident about tonight, and worried about?

    UNI fan first ISU fan 2nd...
    Confident:
    Be surprised to see either team hit 70. Confident UNI does a decent job stopping transition points.
    Concerned:
    UNI missing Kerwin's size at guard
    ISU's high shooting % especially from 3.
    UNI's low shooting % especially from 3.

    I expect that we start cold for a couple of minutes, but I think we're breaking that 70-point streak tonight.

    Re: what are people confident about tonight, and worried about?

    My biggest worry is depth... Cold shooting can ruin any teams night. A bigger concern is the fact that ISU has nobody behind Garrett, Anderson, etc in case of foul trouble or injury.
