    Hawkeye basketball last night

    The attendance was the worst I have seen on T.V. from a major conference. It was horrible. The seats were empty everywhere. Did anyone else see how bad that looked. No recruit in there right mind would want to play there.

    It was pathetic, and there were a number of recruits sitting directly behind the bench.

    It was sparser than BJ Armstrong's beard in there.

    And against a program with some decent tradition as well. Not exactly your run of the mill directional or tech-school preseason softie.

    BTW - who won?

    Wake by 9. Iowa led for all of 8 seconds of the game. The final score looks better than it really was. Wake played badly for most of the game and still led by 13-15 most of the way.

    When I turned it on they were talking about how WF hadn't scored in something like 8 minutes, but they were still up by ~12.

    Re: Hawkeye basketball last night

    I sure as heck would be mad if I was a player there. Any ACC team coming in should draw a crowd, especially on national television. Wake has a decent tradition (better than Iowa's) and I would have expected a full house since the students are there. Heck we had 10x more fans against MN when the students were away.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine.

    What's wrong with you? iowa has excellent tradition in basketball. The went to the Final 4 in the 70's, or something.

    That means they're a top 10 program every year.

    Not to be a Debbie Downer but Iowa has a better basketball tradition than we do.

    Their all time record against ISU would shock many of you.

    And yet, as of today I'll still take our fans, our arena, our coach and our players over theirs.

    Our little brother may have a better record but they still don't really have a tradition, just like we don't. It takes more than mediocre wins to create a tradition and it takes longer runs of success than either program has had to create a good tradition.

    Are you kidding me? If we hosted Wake Forest, Hilton would be a madhouse. What's wrong with Iowa fans?

    Iowa was bad last year, and this year their talent is pathetic. Good old Stevie did a job on their program and I'll always appreciate him for that.
