    Get ready for an ugly frustrating game

    That's the way it always is when you play UNI. They won't even look for a shot until they're 20 seconds into their possession, and they will play very tough sound physical defense. They will suck us into a slow pace and frustrate the heck out of us. And they will do it with a bunch of players that most teams passed on, all of whom will be playing with a big chip on their shoulder. They will not beat themselves. We will have to win a half court game.

    I think we will win, but we won't be emptying the bench this time.

    There will be devastation, weeping, wailing, and teeth will be gnashed.
    It will stink to wear purple on Saturday.

    Just so they know, it's just business. Get in the way of a Cyclone, expect to be destroyed.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    UNI will come out guns blazing to beat a top 25 team. ISU has to get out to a hot start.

    Do we destroy UNI in anything anymore? Cripes...it has been forever and a day.

    I'm expecting a frustrating, close game and hope we are shooting well.

    It won't be ugly if we don't allow them to play their style. You make it seem like UNI is certain to dictate the tempo, which they are most certainly are not.

    No, we don't. This team has survived slow starts and rough stretches against much better teams.
    UNI can come out all fired up. They're still going down.

    Just looked at their schedule. They are not the normal UNI team. I'm sure they will be up for it and it will be hard fought , but I'm not nervous about this one.

    I looked to. I was surprised to see that they average 73 points a game. Maryland put up 80 and LMU 81 on them also.

    The only way I see us forcing an uptempo game is if we come out and press the heck out of them, and I don't see Fred doing that. They will get back on defense very well which will make it difficult to get transition baskets. I'm afraid it's going to be a half court grind it out kind of game.

    Re: Get ready for an ugly frustrating game

    UNI isn't a fast team. If we dictate the tempo, which is what I expect to happen, shouldn't be too hard. They're down this year.

    Re: Get ready for an ugly frustrating game

    The difference i this team and past ones is that our point guard situation is set and we have the guys inside to board. I expect to win by 10-15. We will get their best shot no doubt but I don't think they have enough.

    I'll be honest, I am slightly nervous for this game.
