    The last time we lost to Drake look what they did.

    Im not saying this Drake team is as good as the team that went dancing but it is early in the season and you never know.

    Re: The last time we lost to Drake look what they did.

    Last time we lost to Drake (it was in Ames in 2008) we went 15-17 with a 4-12 Big 12 record. Last time we lost @ Drake (2007) we went 14-18 with a 4-12 Big 12 record.

    Missed my point I guess. Was that 2007 Drake team really that bad that the loss was ugly? But wait they were Drake so they should never be good. They should never be again should they? My point is when it is the second game of the season you never know how good or bad the teams you play really are and will be at the end of the season.

    We should expect to beat Missouri Valley Conference opponents every year. Period.

    We lost that 2007 game by 30+ points, so yeah it was ugly. I dont care what team you play, a 30 point loss is ugly.

    This from Wikipedia:

    Under the guidance of Keno Davis, the 2007-08 season was one of the most storied in Drake history. The Bulldogs won the Missouri Valley Conference regular season and tournament titles, advancing the NCAA Tournament. Drake earned a five seed in the NCAA Tournament and they were ranked nationally throughout the year. The season would end in heartbreak fashion when Ty Rodgers hit a last second twenty-six foot three-point shot, giving Western Kentucky a 101-99 overtime victory in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Drake finished the season with a school best 28-5 record.


    "Of course the people don't want war ... the people can always be brought to do the bidding of the leaders. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to greater danger."

    ...no mention of the 2000 Cyclones who lost @ Drake, then lost only 4 more games the rest of the way.. ended up a #2 seed in the big dance, just to get royaly ****'ed by the officials in Auburn Hills? I think we'll be fine. After all, nobody goes undefeated. Just let me Mayor coach!

    Yes.

    I could never think of a way to spin the '07 Drake loss into a positive light.

    In the last 10 years, how many ISU games that didn't involve KU were 30-point losses? Drake '07 is the only one that comes to mind.

    Even that drubbing by North Carolina in the '05 tournament was "only" 27, and UNC won the national title.

    That Drake team was good, definitely, but not That Good good. Ended up slightly* overseeded and got knocked off by the 5-12 upset, to boot.

    *Like, maybe 1 line. I said "slightly."

    Was the 08 loss the game that Dodie Dunson made the half court shot at the end to win but they said time had expired before it left his hands?

    Will people stop with this crap? That team had Marcus Fizer and Jamaal Tinsley and a solid experienced coach.
