    Time to stop playing at Drake

    Despite our lackluster performance last night, there is still no reason that team should have lost to Drake last night. Our players were recruited to Iowa State because their talent was Big 12 level, not Missouri Valley. When you play in Hilton Coliseum in front of 12k to 14k fans, and the other arenas in the Big 12, it can be very difficult to transition down to play a game in a glorified high school gymnasium full of 4k to 5k fans. This letdown, along with Drake's extra motivation to beat the BCS conference team, plays extremely far into Drake's (and any other mid-major)'s favor. Mizzou does not play Missouri State; Kansas and Kansas State do not play Wichita State.... it's time for Iowa State to only play this game at home, at Wells Fargo, or else not at all. If this team hits its stride in Big 12 play, and develops a tournament resume, last night's game at Drake will be a thorn in our side, and possibly even a burst our bubble. It is time to quit catering to a private school who's success directly hampers our ability to compete and reach the next level. We might as well play a schedule North Carolina or Duke if we're going to lose at Drake, instead.

    Re: Time to stop playing at Drake

    Even without the loss (and i was posting this yesterday when i thought we'd win, so its not just a hating that we lost there thing), id say at minimum it should either be a 2\1 situation or it be played in the well on the des moines end.

    We need to stop scheduling this game before T'giving. This should be a X-mas break game -- home or away.

    Is it Drake's Superbowl?



    32 years later and I am still riding on the back.

    ...and a Kansas fan, and a Missouri fan, and a Kansas State fan... etc... I sound like a fan of a team that wants to make the tournament and realize that this hampers our ability to do that.

    Come on its on our player to put the ball in the hoop, not where they play. You really think the Knapp center is a tough place, really.

    I'm not scared of playing Drake... don't overreact... it'll be ok. Imagine if you were a UCLA fan today?

    Re:Time to stop playing at Drake

    Haverhill is not a troll. He has some very valid points there. I strongly disagree that we should stop playing Drake though. Bottom line is losing to Drake is unacceptable and we shouldn't be having this conversation right now.
