    Re: Preview: Diamond Head Classic

    I'm hoping for a ISU Boise St Championship. It's gonna be interesting to see how the team adjusts to playing in a dead gym at Noon Hawaii time.

    Excellent pregame capsules, Chris.

    Iowa State should win this tournament, but at absolute minimum, don't lose that first game (and getting to the final would be preference).

    Losing to George Mason in itself wouldn't be a resume-killer, although it obviously would dilute some of the progress to this point. Going into the loser's bracket right away, though, would reduce the chance to notch any meaningful wins on this trip.

    This will be a long holiday season if we lose the first game. I prefer to think about us starting and being so impressive that President Obama decides to come to our game whether we play Oregon State or not!

    Go tell it to your "Yes We Can" poster. (Only half here.)

    I can't lie...I've got a horrible feeling about this tournament.

    That is a great idea. Maybe somebody can go to the Hawaii Democratic HQ and borrow one. Just make sure that your ISU gear is clearly showing when the TV cameras focus on you.
