    Cyclones to scrimmage Nebraska

    Interesting note from Fred Hoiberg at Big 12 media day.

    The Cyclones will travel to Lincoln to scrimmage Nebraska at the end of the month.

    That will tell the coaches a lot about this team, IMO.

    Chris, did Fred give an exact date or is that still TBD?

    I apporove of this scrimmage. Good test to see how the boys play and insight on possible line-ups.

    Too bad the public won't know what they try.

    This is cool...yet I just wish we would have added them to our non conference schedule. I'd love to play Nebby every year in hoops and not just because I think we can win...I'd just like to maintain that rivalry with them.

    I very much agree... would have loved to see Nebraska as a continuing series like Iowa... get the Huskers at Hilton in the years that we don't get the Hawks at home. Hopefully something like this can be worked out soon.


    You feel the floor give you a little tingle, man, Iowa State junior point guard Monte Morris said in a private moment after the game, leaning against a wall in the bowels of Hilton Coliseum. You feel it. You feel it. Its real. You feel it on the court. Its a tough feeling to explain. Its a vibration. It gets you going.

    He paused.

    Its magic.

    This seems much more reasonable, valuable and cost-effective than going all the way to Italy to play against teams we beat by 60.

    Re: Cyclones to scrimmage Nebraska

    This is pretty cool, and I am glad we are doing it. It wasn't a hidden secret that Doc Sadler was not happy with moving to the BIG, and because of that I have a hard time having ill will towards their basketball program.

    True, but the Italy trip was not a complete loss, I'd say. From a team building point of view, it will be invaluable. That's huge...especially for this team. Chemistry, chemistry, chemistry

    Our team was only allowed to practice/scrimmage anyone over the summer because it was an international trip, so it's apples and oranges.

    Re: Cyclones to scrimmage Nebraska

    So, is this like playing University of Dubuque last year? Same caliber of team, I guess.

    Wait, I guess it said scrimmage, not Exhibition. Oh, well, I still got to make fun of Nebraska.

    Is this new information is it? It was already mentioned on this board that we were scrimmaging Nebraska and it was the reason we were only playing one exhibition game. This wasn't something we just learned from today's media day, was it??????

    Good to play a team that actually beat you the year before. It will be a good test for our guys.

    This is an excellent type of exhibition/scrimmage
