    That was the best job of selling this non-conference schedule I have yet seen. That was excellent.


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

    Here's all the selling that schedule needs:

    In a few short weeks there will be Iowa State Cyclone basketball on your television and radio.

    I'm thinking Chris may have been looking at a 2010 calender. It says ISU plays at Drake on 16 Nov, which is a Wednesday, but the story says it's a Tuesday and the iowa game is on December 3rd, which is a Saturday, but the game is on Friday night.

    Why is that game always on a Friday? Is it some big tradition or something? It always struck me as kind of dumb that they didn't try to move it to a Saturday or Sunday game.

    I could be wrong (there has to be a first time), but I think it got stuck on Friday supposedly because of finals for first semester. It's been on Friday for quite a few years,now. It used to be on Saturday.

    It has been on a Friday long enough to become kind of "normal" and maybe traditional, but I never liked it there.

    I still say there's a way to find open conference dates for each team and stick it sometime in late January. On the off-chance that both teams actually become strong again in the same season, it'd have a more noticeable profile.

    Or, move it a week earlier and play it on a Saturday.

    The problem isn't TV and radio. The problem is spending 6+ hours to go to these ****** games

    But without ****** non-con games how will we allow ourselves to buy into insane hype like "Royce White is the best passing forward since LeBron James" or "Scott Christopherson is the second coming of Reggie Miller"?
