    Re: Baylor vs Iowa for all the marbles in NIT Gamethread On ESPN @ 8 PM

    A lot of basketball games come down to match-ups. Baylor is not a good match-up for Iowa. Iowa seems like one of those teams that is disciplined enough to win a lot of the 50/50 games but they aren't athletic enough to beat the big boys, and when Baylor wants to, they can play like a big boy.

    I'll agree with Baylor having better athletes, and that's why they won.

    I don't agree that Iowa is not athletic. I'd be curious as to what your definition of athleticism is?

    When your best player is a ginger, I'm sorry but your team is just not that athletic.

    Ah, gotcha. So it has nothing to do with athletic ability, just hair and skin color.

    Why are we still talking about this? Seriously, why is a gamethread for the NIT championship game the hottest thread on CF? Why?

    Am I disputing the fact that you won? no. Im disputing the fact that Iowa beating us means that they are a team of anything more than Y-league athletes.

    Re: Baylor vs Iowa for all the marbles in NIT Gamethread On ESPN @ 8 PM

    I watched about 10 minutes of the game, before and after halftime, so I am entitled to a ill-informed opinion too. My 2 main thoughts:

    1. "Shooting". Iowa shot badly, but a big piece of that was trying to shot over/around Baylor's tall guys. And of course Baylor, going for blocks, didn't rebound well so Iowa gets more shots that they can't get over/around those bigs. So I don't buy "had a bad night shooting" excuse -- a lot of that is credited to Baylor.

    2. "Athleticism". Not even going to talk about vertical leaps or height. Baylor looked FASTER than Iowa. Getting up and down the court, in the half court, helping on defense. The only time Iowa looked faster was getting to loose balls- they do hustle, to their credit. But Iowa looked slow.


    I told some friends at work this game was all about which Baylor team showed up. Unfortunately for Iowa, it was the good team.

    It's the offseason. 5 months of this hell, trapped like an insect in amber. Basically there are only 3 choices:
    1. pointlessly re-hash old games
    2. cluelessly speculate about 20 redshirt freshman on the football team
    3. turn off the computer and go try to do something productive in society

    I think we all know 3 is totally unrealistic.

    Yeah Bobby Knight commented on that quite a bit.

    At least #2 directly involves Iowa State University.
