    Mythical Iowa Cup

    I know football is right around the corner, but I got b-ball on the brain. So....

    Who do you think will take home the mythical Iowa Cup amongst the 4 in-state schools this year in basketball? And how do you think the standings will finish?

    My guess is:
    1. ISU
    2. UNI
    3. Iowa
    4. Drake

    I think ISU finally takes this baby home. Also, I think it is really a toss-up between Drake and Iowa. Iowa is gonna suck (Hubbard leaving just killed them) and if Van Deest for Drake can get over his injury and play well this year, I think Drake could have a decent year. Thoughts? I am always interested in hearing about the other in-state schools.

    Re: Mythical Iowa Cup

    Side note: Why the hell hasn't some sponsor stepped up and actually made some sort of trophy for this? Would it count as a tournament and mess up non-conference scheduling if they did that?

    When UNI and Drake (1 year) have dominated this mythical trophy series for the better part of the last decade it is hardly worth sponsoring.

    ISU better sweep the Iowa teams this year. Tired of losing to UNI, I want to beat them as bad as we beat Drake last year. That would be awesome.

    The Cyclones should and WILL destroy everyone this year. I expect to dominate again for many, many years to come under Hoiberg and his direction.

    Re: Mythical Iowa Cup

    I'm going to be sick to my stomach if we find a way to lose to UNI again. Last year made me physically ill.

    Re: Mythical Iowa Cup

    Someone should compile and maintain a list of the mythical state champions somewhere. I couldn't easily find one by googling.

    Re: Mythical Iowa Cup

    Almost completely off topic, but speaking of state championships and trophies, Shouldn't the Georgia/Ga Tech trophy be the Nut Cup?

    I can't believe that UNI is worse than Iowa.

    Re: Mythical Iowa Cup

    1. State
    2. UNI
    3. Iowa
    4. Drake

    Too early predictions...

    I State v Drake - Iowa State will again crush Drake this year in a total team effort. Christopherson will light it up from behind the arc, while Ejim and White dominate down low. Final Score ISU - 87 Drake - 54.

    I State v UNI - The pesky panthers put up a fight but fall short in Ames. Their entire student following arrives clad in Black and Gold, cheering not for the Panthers but merely against the Clones. Christopherson has a bit of an off night but White has a big game and leads the Clones to a 10 point victory. The Visiting fans go back to their trailer park in Cedar Falls, dissapointed the Clones won but confident that Big Brother Iowa "will beat down the clowns for sure". I State 70 - UNI 60.

    I State v Iowa - Clones start out hot and the excitement is thick inside of Hilton Collesium. Fran "Gets Mad" but it is useless compared to the power of Hilton Magic. Scotty C. continues to terrorize the Hawks by dropping 25 points. The few Hawk fans in attendance once again leave in tears, driving back once again, to their trailer park in Cedar Falls, complaining about Christopherson's "Thug Life" attitude and blaming the 21 point beat down they just recieved on the refs. But deep down inside they are gradually accepting they are in store for another 11 win season. This will be the second of many beatings given to the Hawks by Fred and Co. I State 82 - Hawks 61.

    First thing is to determine which of the 2 (or 3) annual Drake-UNI meetings count toward the "tournament".

    Re: Mythical Iowa Cup

    Just went back to 1980-81 (start of Johnny Orr era):

    Iowa State - 12
    Iowa - 11
    UNI - 3
    Drake - 3
    Three-way tie (ISU/UI/UNI) - 1
    no champ (nowhere near full round-robin played) - 1
