    I believe this is the first time ever...

    Both Iowa and ISU mens and womens teams come into their games all being ranked. I'm like most on this board and don't like the Hawks, but you have to admit it's pretty cool that both programs have their mens and womens teams in the top 25 at the time they are playing each other. And judging from the early season play, I don't believe any of those rankings are overly inflated.

    I wonder how many other states with teams set up like ours (Kansas, Michigan, Oklahoma, Arizona, Washington, etc.) can say that.

    Can't wait for 7 PM tonight and 830 tomorrow. Go Cyclones!

    This is pretty cool. It's much better when the games matter.


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

    This has nothing to do with this thread but when I opened this there is a League of Angels ad on the right. Let's just say it's an interesting marketing ploy and one that I bet is very successful.

    Indiana - ND and Purdue are not the same. Indiana State U?
    Kansas - KSU? Witchita State is not the same.
    UNC - Duke is not the same. NCS?
    Illinois - Illinois State?
    Michigan - MSU?
    Cali -UCLA, USC? Not Stanford.
    Washington - WSU.

    Reminder from the OP's question. I'm still interested if there has ever been a state with a comparable scenario.

    1. Has a state had two schools have both men's and women's teams ranked at the same time?
    2. Has a state had both men's and women's teams playing each other in the same week/weekend while all are ranked?

    This seems like a great story line for ESPN to run with. Seems pretty rare. Hope the games live up to the billing and we win two thrillers.

    I'd pull USC, too, being a private school.

    Not at home where I have adblock, but I got this at work as well (adblock not allowed). Also a Frederick's of Hollywood one. I'm blaming the victoria's secret thread.

    Re: I believe this is the first time ever...

    Yeah, I was thinking along these lines:

    KU/KSU
    Michigan/Michigan State
    OK/OSU
    Arizona/ASU
    Oregon/Oregon State
    Washington/WSU
    Florida/FSU

    I know it's probably happened a lot with men's. But, I'd be interested to see if it's happened with both mens and womens at the same time and when they're playing each other.

    FIFY. I hope Iowa sucks every single year until the world ends, I get no joy in seeing them ranked.

    Your California one has probs.

    "Cali" and UCLA are both part of the University of California system (the other campuses are Davis, Irvine, Riverside, Merced, San Diego, San Francisco, Santa Barbara & Santa Cruz).

    The California State University system has 23 campuses...SDSU is probably the most notable for basketball.
    Edit: I think Cal State Long Beach has been to the dance a couple of times in recent memory...

    USC & Stanford are both private institutions.
