    Iowa is going to be tough for the next few years

    They started 3 freshman, a soph, and a Junior. Of those, the junior scored the least tonight. They have 1 senior who is not very good, and bring in 2 more players next year. Woodbury, nice he adds some muscle. Could be a beast down low. Jesus, the thought of losing to Hesse guys the next few years is unbearable. Fred better have some studs lined up to compete with these guys, as their youth will only be getting better as the season goes on and they age.

    Fred also appeared to be totally out coached in this one. If Iowa didn't make some boneheaded plays, they would have won by 20! Horrible showing tonight....

    ISU had 15+ TOs and the starting 5 had 3 players score 5 points.....

    The ISU womens team could have beat us tonight.

    But I thought Iowa had too many goofy looking white guys? How can they be good?

    Last year the coaches from Ohio were asking themselves 'how in the heck Aaron White' make it out of the state. Last year wasn't a fluke. Aaron is a great goofy looking white BB player.

    And I do remember Iowa State living off the three ball last year from a certian goofy looking white guy.....what was his name? Christiansen or something like that. He was as goofy looking as Gessell.

    We've got young talent as well, Iowa not even in our conference who cares. Home team should always win this game

    Re: Iowa is going to be tough for the next few years

    Fred's transfer idea might start costing him in this series with Iowa going forward? Iowa is VERY young and will only get better over the next few years. I'm not so sure we have much young talent?

    I think Morris and Thomas will be good next year, but not excited about anyone else coming in at all. I think SDW could be good eventually. I actually think SDW could end up being like a Devyn Marble before he's done at ISU.

    But right now, Iowa has a lot better young talent than we do... by far.

    Huh? Not really. White looks like he plays with his feet firmly on the ground as well. Gibson was also the only player to get a block tonight for us. And vertical? Booker was the best athlete on the court tonight. Did that help us or him?

    Is this a joke? How many dunks did White have tonight?

    Between this thread and the other one I'm 100% convinced you just plain make things up. White is a high flyer, an explosive athlete who plays above the rim frequently. He doesn't look the part but he plays it well. Based on what I've seen (I live with THREE Iowa fans and I love college hoops) he gets 2+ dunks per game.

    White isn't fast/quick, but yes, he can jump fairly well. He's also 6'7 so dunking isn't too difficult, but he loves to do it. I wouldn't call him "athletic" but I wouldn't call him "unathletic" either.

    "Dunking" isn't difficult but not many people 6'8'' (or any height) get off the floor as quickly as he does. He also appears to have Elastic Man's arms.

    Explosive? Check.
    Quick vis-a-vis his size? Check
    Fast? Check
    Hand-eye coordination? Check

    Yep, that's an athletic player.

    Re: Iowa is going to be tough for the next few years

    No that team sucks. I'll gladly pound the likes of Purdue, NW, Minny, Illini against them and lay whatever chalk. Don't see many conference wins for them. They deserve credit for wanting it more. They also got a lot of calls when the momentum could have turned (and poor decisions from Lucious to cancel out the good things he did.) Iowa is awful ISU could have been as lazy as they wanted in Hilton and won by 20. In Carver they couldn't pull it off.

    Its really pathetic that a team who has beat noone other than BYU would show such little urgency in a rivalry game. There is nothing Hoiberg could say to these guys they collectively decided at halftime they didn't need to work hard to win a game that was there for the taking since they finished the first on such a good run.

    That isn't one of the BIg Ten's good teams.

    The NW team that just beat Baylor in Waco is much better.

    As is the rest of the conference if you go team by team.

    Their arch rivals somehow decided they didn't need to try in order to win. This mentality was reinforced when ISU was able to lead at halftime despite not trying in the first half.

    McCaffrey got helped by his counterpart not gluing Clyburns *** to the bench.

    A good team would have won by 20-30.
