    Reasons why we will beat Mizzou

    Adding to my other thread where I gave no logical reasons for a win

    1st game we played Mizzou was the toughest week ISU has had this season. The team just got done losing the biggest heartbreaker of the year to Oklahoma State. They had the game won and choked it away in OT.

    Than the team got snowed in down in Stillwater. They couldn't get back to Ames and so they took a bus to Missouri and waited until their next game. Sleeping in hotels is a lot different than sleeping in your normal bed.

    The team was not able to scout Missouri, who in my opinion is the team you need to scout more than any other team in the Big 12. You need to be mentally prepared when you play them and know what you are going to do when the press comes.

    We were not able to use our best weapon.....OUR SCOUT TEAM. Fred has said many times this year that our scout team is crucial for getting our players ready for games. We are probably the only team in the country that has a scout team that can match the teams we are playing.

    We got good looks early but shot horribly. Missed some easy layups. We were short on all our 3's (mainly from tired legs and not getting usual rest)

    Now we are back around. We are in Hilton on a Saturday for what should be a good crowd. We will scout them, know what they are going to do, and not let their speed of play get to us. We will win!

    Iowa State 78
    Missouri 74

    Go Clones!!!

    I like all your rationale, but my reason is just that the guys are playing hard and are due. I am optimistic they can still salvage a few wins to end the season.

    Re: Reasons why we will beat Mizzou

    Is it still Basketball season?

    "I didn't know Cleveland still had a team!?!?"
    "Yeah we got uniforms and everything, it's real great!"


    We are bound to win sooner or later, we pi$$ed away a number of games earlier, so I say we win this one.

    Why?? Because we shouldn't.

    So just out of curiosity, why didn't you just add this to your other thread?

    I don't think we match up well with Missouri at all.
    But maybe they won't make any shots.

    Until this team wins again — against anybody — I don't know if I could come up with reasons they'll win, even though every game remaining (except for Texas) is winnable.
