    Still schedule time for the Big 12 to select Missouri as ISU's SEC Challenge opponent next year. Then we can get rid of that stat within 12 months. Fred shouldn't have any blemishes on his resume.

    It will be a Cyclone beatdown vs. UNI. The guy that always held us back in this game is coaching Omaha.


    Cyclones 80 UNI 66


    Clone to the Bone with the up and coming IOWA STATE.

    Re: Get ready for an ugly frustrating game

    I expect UNI to play hard but go down to the Clones. DeAndre Kane creates all sorts of matchup problems for every team we play. I love that Hogue had a great game when Niang played not so well. This team has such great chemistry and feeds it to the hot hand and has a lot of different weapons. And even when players are not shooting well they do other things to help the team and contribute. Fun team to watch and I actually expect us to play well and have a shot at winning against every team we play. Ultimate team with us developing depth going to 10 deep. I like it.

    Fred Hoiberg has never beat UNI. Let that sink in. I wouldn't believe it if I hadn't witnessed it.

    Until we actually beat UNI, I won't expect it. For whatever reason, we blow at this game.
    If we lose this game, it deserves a meltdown, no matter what anyone thought going in. We are ranked in the top 20 and undefeated. UNI is 3-3. If we do lose, it's definitely not the end of the season, but it will take all of the accolades we've had recently and put a big giant **** over all of them. And this will end up being a bad loss on our resume later in the season.

    I don't play the game, so what I think really doesn't matter at all. I do know what I've seen of our team so far and if they let UNI even hang close in this game, it's a **** performance on ISU's part, not how well UNI can play. Personally, I'm going to take the glass half full approach to this season. I'm not going to fall to the classic ISU mantra of, "Well, we're ISU, anything can happen. I'm saying we come out and punch them in the face. This ISU team seems pretty resilient. They have shown they come out to play, so for now, I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt and be positive about this game.

    Re: Get ready for an ugly frustrating game

    It's so annoying that people constantly think we are going to lose or not gel early because of previous seasons. Fred hasn't beat UNI yet, but that doesn't mean he has to lose again this season. People are so negative and for no reason. The way to beat a slow, half-court team, is to run fast on our end and tire them out. Teams like UNI are a half court team and can't keep up if we are gunning while on offense. If we get aggressive on D, run up and down the floor quickly, then we should be able to beat them soundly. I'm not terribly worried about these guys and think we can pull this win off by 15 points.

    Zero excuses this year for losing to uni. I'll settle for a win of any kind but Fred and the players should take some heat if they lose this one.

    Ummm, it was the other way around. We said we didn't want to play UNI at their place anymore.

    I think I know where you were heading - UNI always has someone shooting lights out against us. They will this year too. Didn't do Auburn much good though, their stud had 27 pts to lead all scorers.

    Re: Get ready for an ugly frustrating game

    UNI's adjusted Tempo (per kenpom.com) is 4.5 possessions per game higher this year than last (67.5 vs 63.0)

    Ours is 6 possessions per game higher (75.4 vs 69.3)

    Sample size plays some factor in that, as I think ours comes down during conference play. But I don't think this will be your normal UNI slow it down game. It'll be a little faster than that, and we may have more luck than usual dictating the tempo against them.

    Didn't we still offer them 2 for 1 before the Big 4 event materialized?

    I don't understand this mentality. It's sports. Nothing ever deserves a meltdown.

    Re: Get ready for an ugly frustrating game

    I'll jump up and down for joy if we win this game by one point. ONE POINT. Seriously I don't care how bad we play as long as we win. I ******* hate playing these guys especially with this stupid Big 4 classic set up. All the Hawk fans will be pulling for UNI as they start to trickle into the arena.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Since a bunch of them attend UNI. Maybe they can get some of those half and half jerseys like the Farniok parents wear when we play Oklahoma.

    I don't understand this mentality, at least not on a site called Cyclone Fanatic.
