    "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."

    Re: ISU Dark Horse Article

    Interesting article. Amazing how many writers think the seedlings will have few surprises then you see articles like this.

    Not bad, though the author may want to do spell check. He spelled team as tram.

    I take offense to his remark about just finishing outside the top 3 of the conference, we were third along with Baylor schmuck!

    Re: ISU Dark Horse Article

    Iowa State (No. 8 South)
    In the Dark: Hoop junkies know how good of a job Fred Hoiberg has done as coach this year, and they know about Royce White. But this would be a perfect time for the casual fans to get introduced to “The Royce White Expressway”.
    Why they can make a run: Royce White. The 6-9 forward is a match-up nightmare. He’s the type of player who can put the entire team on his back. But he does have help. Scott Christopherson is a phenomenal shooter, and Melvin Ejim can do a bit of everything. This team was right outside of the Big-XII’s big-3 of Kansas, Baylor and Missouri. Being just outside of that group isn’t too shabby for a team chalk-full of transfers coached by a second-year head coach.
    Tourney distance: UConn is a difficult second round match-up, but talented teams that lack cohesiveness don’t usually fare well in March. If Iowa State beats the Huskies they can legitimately give Kentucky a run for their money in the third round. If they can knock-off the overall No.1-seed, sky is the limit.
    This guy needs an editor to review his work...

    1) "Big-XII" - should be written "Big 12" per the Big 12's media releases every week
    2) "chalk-full" - probably means "chock full"
    3) UConn is our first round match-up, not our second
    4) Kentucky is our second round match-up

    The talking heads have been insisting on calling the play-in games the first round, therefore, our first game is in the second round.

    Well, yeah. And they're repeating it. Just sounds stupid.

    Re: ISU Dark Horse Article

    A few other observations:
    • Noticed the photo; does McD often drag his son to the lockerroom by his hair?
    • The three lower big 12 teams all on this list. Since all three of them made the list does that suggest that the Big 12 wasn't exactly done any favors by the seeding in this year's tourney? Underseeded?
    • I don't disagree with his characterization of ISU being right outside the big 3. He didn't say anything about conference finish. ISU is far away from a top 10 ranking. These other three are not.
    • If we are going to hit him up for use of the English language, you might as well throw "birth" in there. Unless the teams are having babies, the word he is looking for is "berth". Of course most posters on here get that wrong as well.


    "There are five real good recruits in the state. We got three of them. One couldn’t get into school, and the other went to (the University of) Iowa...which is about the same thing." - Coach Johnny Orr

    I think it's hilarious that 60 of the 68 teams in the tournament officially have a first-round bye.

    Re: ISU Dark Horse Article

    Wasn't there articles about Iowa State being a darkhorse to win the Big 12 tournament? How'd that work out?

    Exactly. I was thinking we were playing very good ball down the stretch by beating KSU and Baylor, and giving MU a great run in Columbia. But that Big 12 game was a real stinker. I am very nervous now about UCONN.
