    Way early pre ISU vs Oklahoma game thread

    Just so damn exited I couldn't help but make a game thread already.

    Prediction Oklahoma's strategy on defense is to try and stop Kane and forgets to guard the 3 ball ISU nails 9 of them. Georges has a monster night with 27 points.

    Final score
    Iowa State 73
    Oklahoma 65

    We got thumped there last year and between two big games it is the perfect time for a let down. 72-70 Sooners.

    This is probably our toughest game so far this year.

    Re: Way early pre ISU vs Oklahoma game thread

    All the talk of a let down. IF Freddy can't stop a let down no one can. His answer last night to the NC comment tells me there is NO WAY the Clones suffer a let down. If we lose its because of the team we are playing not because the boys don't show up. Losses may/will/should come but it won't be because we of looking past anyone. Just because things like this have happened before doesn't mean we should be waiting for a let down. STAY CALM AND BALL ON!

    Each won on their home court last year by almost the same margin and score. At ISU, we won 83-64. At OK, they won 86-69,

    Re: Way early pre ISU vs Oklahoma game thread

    I'll go with 83-74.

    At some point we have a let down and drop one. I just don't think this is it. I think we get through this and KU. Texas feels like the let down game to me.

    I almost guarantee that Texas will be the let-down game, because I will be there, and it feels like the kind of thing that would happen when I'm in attendance.

    Re: Way early pre ISU vs Oklahoma game thread

    The mistake I made in the Baylor game (in being nervous) was in looking at the match ups. Baylor had bigs and smalls, and not nearly enough in between to cover the type of guys we put on the floor. I'll have to look at OU's roster again. And while we aren't going to win every game, I think this team has proven that we should expect them to win going in to any game from here on out.

    Lol, we'll say that every game with a target on our backs. It's a good thing I guess.

    Although, this is not an ***official game day thread*** because that belongs to CycloneRulzzz, I supposed I'll make a prediction.

    ISU 85
    OU 81

    Re: Way early pre ISU vs Oklahoma game thread

    Looks like they have the size to match up (similar to us, mostly mid-sized players), but do they have the talent? I think we're a little better at most positions. Their schedule hasn't been as tough as ours, with a reasonably close loss (by 11) to Michigan State, a win that looks very good at Texas, and nothing much more to mention (other than a loss at home to La Tech). Just a matter of putting our game on the floor.

    Re: Way early pre ISU vs Oklahoma game thread

    Can their big men play with ours? That's the overlooked question in these matchup analyses.
    I don't believe that they can.

    We'll be favored by 4, and win a tough one by 7.
