    I'm going to bet that guy hasn't watched ISU play a single time and got all of his info on our squad from a box score.

    Yeah, not sure there are many similarities between us and Iona beyond scoring at a high rate.

    Re: 5 Keys to Beating ISU Article

    It's from an OSU perspective so not much different than articles by this site's moderators. I do agree re: the turnovers. But, as with Notre Dame, I think the key is rebounding. If battle them and hold our own, we win.

    Re: 5 Keys to Beating ISU Article

    This article is a lot of fluff. Replace "Ohio State" and "Iowa State" with any other higher seeded team and lower seeded team, and the article pretty much reads the same. Advice like "stay out of foul trouble" and "have good guard play" is revolutionary!!!!

    It's from bleacher report, so you know it's good stuff. Why, I'd bet you that the author even PUT. DOWN. HIS. SANDWICH. once or twice while he was typing that up.

    I agree with this. I didn't really disagree with anything except the Iona comparison. But that's because he doesn't really say anything specific about us. But I do agree with the writer that we are not your typical 10 seed.
