    Seems like Ohio State doesn't really want to play us

    If we beat ND and they beat Iona of course. Was strolling their scout forums and it seemed like they prefer playing Notre Dame over us. Our 3 point offense/high scoring offense worries them, especially since Ohio State prefers to play smaller and therefore won't really have an inside presence on us to offset our 3 point offense.

    Just thought I'd pass it along.

    Notre Dame doesn't really seem to even care that their playing us Friday. Excited about a potential matchup with Ohio State, seem like great, classy fans and they don't seem very cocky. Aaron Craft and Deshaun Thomas scare me a lot though. I think Babb could handle Thomas but I think Craft will take Lucious to the woodshed.

    I think we're just such a big wild card. When we're on we can beat almost anyone.

    all depends on if will shows up, Korie stays in control, and the 3's are a falling. 3/3 and we win going away. 2/3 and we probably win. 0-1 /3 and we lose.

    Re: Seems like Ohio State doesn't really want to play us

    As many people have posted over the past couple of months, no one will want to play us when we get to the tourney. How do you stop a team that scores 80 a game and can either have a 6'0" or 6'7" point guard with 1 day to prepare? Not to mention a guy that comes off the bench shooting 47% from 3, anywhere on the floor, with or without a hand in his face.

    And rebounding. Can't give them 4 chances in one possession like the Kansas game. Plus Fred always stresses rebounding, so it must be important to our game.

    If Iowa State and Ohio State advance... I think that matchup won't be nearly what you think it will be. Korie will be looking to distribute rather then score which takes Craft's ability to lock on and shut down a scorer and flushes it. Craft can spend all his time chasing Korie while our other shooters get open looks.

    Re: Seems like Ohio State doesn't really want to play us

    Oh, I look to be screwed by the officiating. (where would this be played at?) I like the match up, besides if your going to be bounced from a tourney, may as well be against a team like that than some other squad that'll probably lose before the sweet 16. I KNOW we can take 'em.

    As many of the experts have said, nobody wants to play Iowa State.

    Re: Seems like Ohio State doesn't really want to play us

    I think we are in trouble with whatever team we play. We are also in trouble with almost any team we play. We just have to play better than we have ever played before.

    Big problem would be who could match up with DeShaun Thomas.

    Re: Seems like Ohio State doesn't really want to play us

    Well Iowa State better not get in the way of themselves then. Defense will be key and controlling the ball and not turning the damn thing over. When we do these things we are a strong team, when we don't well........... but yes we are such a wild card its confusing. Oh yeah and rebounding one and done get the break started and push it up the court is essential to our offense.

    Well... Thomas is 6'7" so Babb, Clyburn, or Ejim could take him. I would suspect that Babb will be face guarding him the majority of the game but if he drops down on the block trying to post up when OSU goes to a small lineup I would think Ejim would be on him.

    I agree with this. We are one of few teams that can negate a lot of what Craft does because Korie doesn't have to have the ball. Of course, the problem is OSU locks down everywhere as a team but you get the point. Craft still makes it hard to get into a half court offense, but he doesn't need to have the impact he can have against a team that relies on their PG to move everything.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Re: Seems like Ohio State doesn't really want to play us

    He's so versatile he goes in and out. I could see them throwing all 3 of those guys at him to mix it up on him. Honestly I'd say Clyburn would be the best bet. He's got the quickness on the perimter and enough length down low, although he doesn't have much bulk.
