    Michigan and Iowa

    ISU's Dec 3rd opponent #15 Michigan today beat #8 Memphis by 12 points in Maui and will likely face Duke next. Tim Hardaway Jr. is their leading scorer. The Cyclones have a very stiff test barreling down the tracks toward them; let's hope the men show up ready to play big boy ball....

    Re: Michigan and Iowa

    Michigan looked pretty impressive, but that game was so sloppy I didn't really put a ton of stock into it. Not saying they're not a great team, but I feel like if they play that game again it could just as easily be them losing by 15 points. Will still be a tough test though.

    And Iowa... oh Iowa.. haha. At least Creighton isn't terrible.

    Unless Michigan really tweaks their defense, we have a chance to shoot somewhere near 3 billion threes in that game. If we're shooting well at all, we have a great chance at Michigan.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.

    I think we could win shooting 61 or 62%. Don't have to go crazy.

    We will not beat Michigan. 5% chance...we aren't going to go out on the road and beat a good team until this team has a lot more time together.

    We did lose to a middle-of-the-MVC Drake team. I love to see Iowa lose but I'm not quite ready to go pointing and laughing.

    This is reality until these guys start to play something resembling Eustachy-esque D.

    Exactly. You have to rebound and play very good D in order to win on the road against major conference competition. It's rare that your offense is going to come as easy on the road, so you need to defend very well.

    im not sure why we are bagging on iowa for losing to Creighton, when we lost to freaking Drake, and looked terrible doing as much. Creighton has some legit players, Drake is okay.

    Re: Michigan and Iowa

    My brother-in-law is making the trip up here and both of us are going to the Michigan game. It will actually be the first basketball game I've gone to since I graduated in '03.

    After watching Michigan twice now, I really can't consider them good.......yet.

    People are dogging Iowa because they didn't just lose, they were destroyed.

    Re: Michigan and Iowa

    We just beat Northern Colorado by like 6 points and you think Michigan and Iowa aren't good? We lost to Drake, they lost to Creighton a top 25 team...seriously we all bought into the hype this preseason but reality is that our basketball team is mediocre and doesn't like to play defense, have a bad shooting night we aren't too good (see Drake)
