    They should blame magic. Only valid excuse.

    This is obvious....they will say the refs as we shot 15 more free throws than them.

    Refs were pretty bad both ways. I saw two even teams on the court tonight. Hilton was the difference.

    Iowa is a very good team and they played a hell of a game! Coming up with lame excuses just diminishes that.

    They can likely find several excuses and we could point to our free throw woes. None of it matters. We won, but there wasn't a clearly better team tonight.

    Re: What excuse will EIU come up with?

    Not an excuse by them, but on Twitter, they're so butthurt that they're bringing up bowl games, the overall record of the series, etc like it actually matters to this year's basketball season.

    Iowa fans should be confident - they have a really good team, but bringing up those types of things above just makes them look like sore losers and douchebags with no confidence.

    I don't listen to EIU sports talk, so I would neither know or care what excuses they have. We won. End of story.

    8-0 is all that matters.
    Suck it hoks!

    I will say though, very impressed with their team. Not many teams could handle that pace they for e you to play. They were much better than Michigan and will easily make the tourney and that kills me to admit.

    I have gotten texts from some and all have said the refs screwed them...funny thing is they are the same people who say we complain about the refs to much.

    I got fouls on facebook, but the refs didn't cause the hawks to miss FT's at the end.


    There are not many crowds or places in the country that have a better impact on the game than at Iowa State. The Cyclone fans are truly a sixth man. The place is so loud and always a fantastic crowd." - Former Kansas and current North Carolina head coach Roy Williams
