    ISU vs Iowa MBB ending?

    It sounds like Fran is scared to play ISU, not to mention Drake/UNI. It would be a shame if this rivalry ended, IMO.

    I would be ashamed if I were a Hawk fan if my coach talked about major conference opponents like this......

    Rivalry will go nowhere as long as a corporate sponsor exists IMO.

    Iowa always quits the rivalry when they start losing.

    See 1934 in football.

    Re: ISU vs Iowa MBB ending?

    I can see getting rid of UNI and Drake but I can't imagine Iowa and ISU not playing yearly.

    Moreover, how could Iowa play Drake and/or UNI in any given year and not ISU?

    Re: ISU vs Iowa MBB ending?

    If Iowa quits playing the in-state teams in order to schedule 3 more cupcake teams then Iowa basketball has reached a new low. I don't see the rivalry games going away, on any given year all 4 schools have been more competitive than the other.

    Re: ISU vs Iowa MBB ending?

    The comment about Iowa State not being a rival makes Fran sound pretty ignorant. It is a rivalry even if they don't "have to go through us to win the championship." He clearly doesn't understand what match-ups like this mean to the state of Iowa, even for sports other than football.

    I thought he was quoted saying something like "I can't imagine the home and home series between Iowa and ISU changing." This was in response to a Big 4 tournament.

    Re: ISU vs Iowa MBB ending?

    Dropping us to play Kansas, UCONN, Duke - makes sense to me - NOT. The PR out of Iowa has not had a good week in relation to in-state games.

    The money quote was when he said they may want to take on Kansas, Duke, or UNC in future years.

    KU, Duke, and UNC need cupcake games too.

    Re: ISU vs Iowa MBB ending?

    I thought there was an State of Iowa law in place that all 4 schools were to play each other. I don't know why people keep bringing this up.

    I just find it funny that Fran wants to play Duke and Kansas, would have been funny this year, I think Duke and Kansas would break all their records.
