    Cooley

    I watched over some of the interviews for the ND players. I can't figure out why Cooley was so confident. He almost comes across as smug. I haven't heard much but it doesn't seem like Ohio St. is being that smug about playing us. I guess I was alarmed at how unprepared they looked for us. Even if they had a bad night they also seemed to have no clue of what to do.

    Re: Cooley

    For sure. Compare us to the mighty DePaul. I hope Ohio State thinks we are Northwestern. There is a difference between cocky and confident. We were confident they were cocky. We win they lose. Simple as that.

    I think overconfidence and smugness are required to get into Notre Dame. For me professionally every ND alumni I have met (only 3 so small sample size) and talked to, they just thinks they are better than everyone else because they went to ND. So it think is it a status thing.

    Re: Cooley

    I think teams that are average and below average in the Big East have a false sense of security. A feeling that average in the Big East is still better than most Big 12 teams.

    Re: Cooley

    You might as well get over it because we destroyed him/ND. Keep in mind that these people probably don't even know where to find Iowa on a map, despite their claim to a superior education.

    To them ISU might as well have been Arkansas State or something. Just another rinky dink, low budget school in a mid major conference.

    Once you've beaten DePaul, what else is there to accomplish?


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.

    Re: Cooley

    Reminds me of UConn last year. They've never heard of ISU and thought it would be an easy win. It's great to watch them suffer for their arrogance.

    Re: Cooley

    He is a very overrated player. I thought that Withey was overrated, but Cooley takes it. Slow and a very limited game.

    Here's hoping they did what everyone else has been doing lately, and OSU has been studying Iowa film.

    Re: Cooley

    Just like Cooley on defense, I missed something here. What's the deal about his girlfriend?

    Ha. Well, there's your problem. ...but yeah, ND grads suck.
