    Think we could've beat Michigan?

    Does anyone think we could've beaten Michigan at home this year like it should've been instead of skipping a year?

    I honestly think no but I think it would've been a pretty good game.

    Sure. There were about 30 teams that could have, should have, would have on any given night.

    But Louisville went and did it.


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

    Depends on when. Late in the regular season we would have beaten them.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Re: Think we could've beat Michigan?

    If we were on, yes, but we weren't the same team early in the year when we would've played. I'm pretty sure we couldn't have beaten Louisville at any point of the season. Just so physical.

    I always appreciate your 100% optimism and homerism Erik. And I respect it.

    However, I disagree. Not when they played like they did tonight.

    ALTHOUGH, they did lose @ Penn State, got blown out @ MSU, and lost twice to UW and OSU. So, it's not like they're unbeatable college team that lost to an NBA team tonight. They got hot in the tournament, and ran into the best team in the nation at the end.

    So, I think ISU could have beaten UM. Tourney UM, maybe not. Penn State UM? Blow-out city.

    That's the thing. I'm not guaranteeing it. I'm just saying that we could, and putting us in that group of 30 that could win it all. Not at #1 out of that 30, not at 30, just in that 30, wherever we are.

    Oh, we're talking in a tournament setting? Yeah, lot's of teams COULD win it all. For a while, it was looking like WSU was going to be one of those teams.

    The way we played at home this year we could beat about anyone in Hilton. Keep in mind that KU let UM off the hook and ND did beat Louisville.

    Right. They're definitely in the group that could, and pretty high up there.

    They were toughened by playing Iowa
