    First Big XII Opponent: Texas Tech

    I don't think they're as bad as many on here thought (particularly to begin the season). They are pounding Mt. St. Mary's now at home and should be 7 - 1 at home coming into our game with only a 2 point loss to LSU on the schedule.

    No Big XII road game is easy. If we can go 5 - 4 on the road this year in the Big XII I will be ecstatic! I think 4 - 5 is more likely.

    They are 7 and 5. They haven't lost to a bad team, but they haven't beaten a good team. Only one loss was to a ranked team (Arizona) and they lost by 20+. Lost to LSU at home and Pitt neutral with other losses to ASU and Bama.

    Re: First Big XII Opponent: Texas Tech

    Some TTU stats so far this year (National Rank):
    PPG: 72.3 (191st)
    RBG: 34.7 (225th)
    APG: 11.8 (258th)
    FG%: 46.4 (100th)
    Kenpom SOS: 211

    They are not very good. All of that being said, Northern Illinois is still up next tomorrow night. I am FAR more worried about that game than I am TTU, at least until the clock in Hilton reads 0:00 tomorrow night.

    Good point.

    I don't think Tech is "terrible" though as an earlier poster stated. By that standard more than half of college basketball team's would be "terrible" I suspect. We play them on the road, and I think we'll see a close game. Hope I'm wrong and we blow them out, but a truly "terrible" team would not give ISU a close game.

    Re: First Big XII Opponent: Texas Tech

    Is this just classic ISU mentality? Pump up our opponents so if we lose, we feel better about it? No way in hell we should lose to this team. Not saying it isn't possible, we shouldn't have lost to them last year, but no need to make them seem better than they are.

    Agreed. They aren't good at all. A must win.
