    Buckeye here ..

    I had to come back one last time and thank you for the warm welcome and info you have provided me over the past week. This is one great message board community and the traffic and volume of messages is great.

    I don't want to touch much on the game yesterday as there is plenty of other posts on here covering it, but I do want to say your team is extremely talented and if we would have played 10 times I think we each win 5 of them.

    Best wishes and my fingers are crossed you can keep Coach Hoiberg. You have a good one on your hands!

    Congrats on the win. Thomas is a baller and hard to root against the guy.

    Please destroy the Hawks next fall.

    I wasn't aware that Iowa even had a basketball team this year. They are 2nd tier big ten and after what I saw from your team yesterday, they are not even close to being the top dog in the state of Iowa anytime in the near future as long as you keep that coach of yours.

    nice of you to come back and say nice things but not be condescending. You keep making burns like that and you can stick around.

    No reason to be condescending. Your coach is a class act, your team was fantastic and that game was one of the best so far in this tourney. It is hard to dislike what I saw. If the ball would have bounced the other I would have had no issue cheering for you guys.

    The only thing I disliked was the damn chants each time we shot free throws. Good lord that was annoying (and yes I realize that was the point so mission accomplished). Was that your band? A group of fans?

    It's the band mostly, and a lot of people complain about in Hilton. Personally I'm indifferent. If it works, I don't care how stupid or annoying it is. IF...

    I believe that was the band and there is big huge thread somewhere on the front page where everyone argues over whether it's clever or annoying, so you're hardly alone on that.

    Was disappointed we/you didn't
    get to see Babb cover your top scorers
    with the hot hands. Forced us to change up
    our D strategy significantly. Good/bad calls weren't
    the issue, not having our arguably best player
    on the floor the second half killed us.
    When Babb went down, I expected the Bucs to run away with it.

    Please tell us you are going to stick around! There's no way you wouldn't get favorite guest poster of the year award.

    Thanks man. You guys have a great team and Thad is a great coach. Great athletes and great defense.
    Hopefully in a few years we will be able to build up our talent level similarly. Don't want to jinx it, but you guys should have a Final Four team especially with how the West blew up. Good luck the rest of the way. Go ahead and win the whole thing. Then we can say we lost to the eventual champion two years in a row.

    LOL, you aren't the only one. Most of our own fans don't even like it.
