    I realize ISU is favored by 1.5, but looking at it, you can still call it an upset. An unranked team over the #9/#10 team in the nation will be viewed as an upset.

    I don't think it will be. Most experts will pick us to win this game.

    I don't expect the line to stay on ISU's side. Many people will see that and jump on Baylor. I'm not sure how many experts will pick ISU, but in the eyes of majority of the nation, it will be seen as an upset.

    Those people will be the stupid one then. We will be real tough to play tomorrow night for anyone.

    Our threes may be reigning from heaven since Booker and Royce now are shooting and making them.


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

    I'm concerned that Royce has become a little too comfortable at the 3 point line. We have too many times when a big misses a three and there are no Cyclones even contesting for a rebound.

    I'm not concerned. He's shot 11 all year.

    He shot 3 in the last game. Two of them went in so he may be thinking about shooting them more regularly.

    Thanks for the correction. I must have missed him shooting one. I guess that reinforces my point; four in the last game. He may be getting a little too comfortable at the arc. Hopefully not because we need him collapsing the D and rebounding.
