    3 reasons why I like the clones today

    1.) This is the first game since probably the Kansas game where the clones can actually play the "respect" card. Most pundits (I'm looking at you too CW) and myself are already giving KSU the W.

    2.) For the past couple days all KSU has heard on the radio and from college analysts how they are playing their best ball of the season, they had the best two game winning streak in the history of KSU bball, and most importantly they are now lock for the dance. IMO today's the perfect letdown game with an early start.

    3.) It's become pretty clear that the one thing missing on ISU's dance is s signature road victory. (not sure when a road W became such a big deal) A win today would sign, seal, and deliver a ticket to the dance.


    Keys to the game:

    1.) How the refs are calling the game. If they are calling every ticky-tack foul it helps out the clones. If they are letting them play, it could be a long day for the clones.

    2.) Stop dribble penetration: In most of our losses, this is what has killed us the most. Who will we put Babb on?

    3.) Rebound: Too often the past couple games we've been caught half-*** boxing out. The guards will really need to help rebound.

    Ya, KSU has just come off of a tough 4 game stretch so hopefully they will be looking in the past (their big wins) and to the future (NCAA's).

    Hopefully today is when we start "chopping heads off".

    Defense, Defense, Defense, and Rebounding. I think we can pull it off, we just have to stick with them. Hope Royce is hungry today.

    Babb will be on mcgruder I bet. He was last time. Good post by the way, I agree with you on all this.

    Anyone know if Booker will make an appearance today? We could really benefit with his presence down low.

    Re: 3 reasons why I like the clones today

    I like all of your reasons as well. I think this will at the least give us a heck of a game against them. K State is a good, tough, and physical team. I just hope we dont get down by 14 again and have to come back. We wont have Hilton on our side to try and dig ourselves out of that hole...

    I really like our chances against KSU today.

    Re: 3 reasons why I like the clones today

    I am looking for SC to be a key defensive matchup against Rodriquez, Last time the Hobbit 2 ran circles on the court on the right side before he got into foul trouble. Hope to see Melvin explode with great shooting today


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    Re: 3 reasons why I like the clones today

    My key to getting a win is the ISU bench. Will we get enough from Tyrus, Percy, Booker (need him to get right immediately), and Bubu?

    Think we have Babb on Magruder or however you spell his last name

    Re: 3 reasons why I like the clones today

    Agree with most, but on your key #1- I think it is more important that we respond to however they are calling the game. We figured it out late against them the first time, and when we did, it was a different game.

    could we use bubu on rodriquez? isn't he the #2 as far as defenders go?

    Bubu could be a key, as well as Booker. We need the defensive bodies to play against that type of team, and those two add some toughness off the bench.

    Re: 3 reasons why I like the clones today

    I too like the Clones today. KState is playing well and have two great road wins. I actually think they are the toughest match up remaining. I think our guys know this is an opportunity to punch their own card so expect to see a focussed and determined effort. The Cyclones have been the better team over the course of the season and good teams make runs when it matter most. We will find out where this Cyclone team ranks in history over the next 3 games and potentially with a run in the conf Tourney. I think these guys find a way to win 2 of the last 3, win one or more in the Big 12 tourney, be the strongest 8/9 seed and have a great shot at an upset of a 1/2 seed in round two. This would put them right up there in the rafters as a team to really remember for years to come and set them up with high expectations and all of the press that comes along with that for next season. Worrying about 4 losses and a popped bubble is pretty defeatist thinking considering how far they have come, just need to take one more step.

    I like the matchup of Tyrus on Rodriguez better than SC on Rodriguez. I like Tyrus' scrappyness to really throw Rodriguez off his game.

    I know you don't mean to be insulting but this statement pisses me off. They are not coming off of a tough 4 game stretch. They are at the end of their tough 5 game stretch. Not sure if you know this, but we are tied for 3rd in the conference. We are no longer a pushover. Let's get that in our heads.
