    Iowa Kansas potential matchup?

    Can't decide who I hate more. This would be a fun game to watch though if they match up in the bracket.

    Kansas might double iowa's score, if baylor beat them as badly as they did.

    Re: Iowa Kansas potential matchup?

    Oh please make this happen. Would love to see a new-look Kansas destroy an 'experienced' Ha_keye team. Because, you know, the NIT will obviously have given the black and gold birds the edge...


    Best part of that article is the last paragraph, talking about Iowa improving their non-con schedule:

    The Hawkeyes hurt their NCAA tournament chances last season by playing a soft nonconference slate. But Iowa will play at Iowa State, host an undetermined ACC school and play in the more prestigious Bahamas tourney next year.

    Re: Iowa Kansas potential matchup?

    Good timing for Iowa. This will probably be Iowa's best team in 10 years and possibly KU weakest team in 10 years. KU has a lot of new starters and Iowa returns almost entire squad. I'd not be surprised to see Iowa win. For me this is like North Korea vs the Taliban. Can't stand either one.

    Kansas will still find there way into the top 15 this season, they always do. They'll probably end up winning the Big 12 even with a loaded Oklahoma state team

    KU is reloading a lot of talent from last years team which is now gone. Look for them to struggle early, and knowing Iowa and there luck it wouldn't surprise me at all if they pulled out the W here.

    Re: Iowa Kansas potential matchup?

    Iowa would likely win an early season matchup with KU. KU has a lot of pieces that will need to learn how to play together. They'll have it going by conference, but don't see it that early.

    A) that's not saying much

    so Kentucky is supposed to be unbelievably good because of their recruiting class (hands down #1, one of the best if not the best recruiting class ever), but KU is going to be down because of who they lost (#2 recruiting class). They have 4 top 35 players coming in, as much as I hate them they are still going to be really good next year

    Iowa has plenty experience playing with each other and Kansas will still be trying to gel together at this point in the season so iowa has a chance. With this being said honestly im hoping we see the taliban win this and then we take down the Taliban twice like navy seals.

    Iowa has an OK team, but not one that will beat Kansas. UK 80 Iowa 67

    The pieces are better than Iowa's pieces across the board so I'd have to disagree with the "likely" part.
