    Under 20 points. I hope you are right but just don't see it.

    Chris, I don't envy your job before games like this. Trying to spin any sort of positive outlook can't be easy.

    I didn't realize Scotty had that streak going, good for him.

    Thomas Robinson won't play. He had surgery on a torn meniscus and is out about 2 weeks.

    Selby is doubtful to play.

    heck, KU, you were real early. I could not find this thread. Sorry.
    good news none the less!!

    just in case someone wants to read this

    KU's Thomas Robinson will be out about two weeks after surgery on torn meniscus; Selby unlikely to play Saturday | Campus Corner


    Making a difference everyday!

    I agree tough job tough racket Chris. I can't imagine having to pick us to get killed. But thank you for not acting like it's going to ruin your weekend because we might get beat. I travel to watch the Cyclones play basketball (you know the drill, against all odds we show up). Des Moines, Iowa City, Lawrence, not to mention the 17 games so far at Hilton this year! I'd rather pick the Cyclones to win every game than pick them to lose. But that's just my opinion.

    Truly a breakdown this time. Looking for Railey to play some good ball tomorrow.

    Better ISU teams have lost by 20-30 points at KU. Hoiberg, as a player, lost by an ave of 18.75 at the Phog. I think this one gets ugly.

    Re: The Breakdown: Iowa State @ Kansas

    A couple of interesting tidbits from the article:

    KU only beat us by four points in our last meeting, 84-79.

    We had a player in the 2006-07 season named Make Taylor.

    Sorry to be the spelling/grammar/whatever police, Chris, but I still think that having someone proofread these before they get officially posted would be beneficial for CF's credibility. Just trying to be helpful.

    I liked the breakdown. I think we'll keep it within 20 as well.

    Re: The Breakdown: Iowa State @ Kansas

    I was going to start the ***game thread*** on this but, I just can't get myself too motivated about it. I'll certainly back our team, but my gosh, I just don't see how we can stop them even if we catch fire from 3 point range.

    Go Cyclones!

    Re: The Breakdown: Iowa State @ Kansas

    I think one of two things will happen:

    1. It will be a tighter game than many of us expect, but a version of the near-miss crops up and KU hangs on. It won't be ISU failing to hold a late lead, but being within a couple of baskets with plenty of chances, but not getting it done.

    2. ISU will fall victim to a slow start and KU gets its most lopsided Big 12 win of the season.

    Of course I hope for Option No. 3: Upset! It would make me temporarily forget about at least some of the heartbreakers in recent weeks.

    If this team truly isn't going to sniff postseason, at the very least I'd like to get a shocker. It would make CBB notice for at least part of a Saturday.
