    I Think We Beat KU At Home

    I just have a feeling that ISU is going to take down KU in Allen Fieldhouse on the 29th.

    Does anyone else think it will happen?

    Didn't we just lose to them at home?

    No. We don't match up well with them.

    We can beat anyone else in any other matchup (maybe not OSU in Stillwater), but we just don't match up well with KU.

    I could see it happening. That said, I wouldn't "predict" it.


    Ill put any dollar that if I get this ball again, Long said, Its going in.

    Why? But I would take it.

    if we figure out the defensive rotations and start shooting the ball better, I agree. Especially if we win the next 2.

    Re: I Think We Beat KU At Home

    Playing a team on their court, is not a home game. But no, I disagree with you. Worst match up for us you could dream up. Especially since we are not a threat from behind the arc.

    Re: I Think We Beat KU At Home

    Could happen. Fred's got roughly 2 weeks to figure out how to beat them. Lost by 7 at home, could translate to a 20-30 point loss at AFH. Especially if we shoot as poorly.

    Yes we can't possibly play or shoot worse.

    I think three things will factor in:

    1. KU arrogance at home.
    2. KU keeping us at arms length at Hilton (adding to their arrogance).
    3. There's no freaking way we'll ever shoot the ball that poorly again.

    We're a damn good team. If we play together and hit our shots we can steal one back. I think we're going to do just that.

    With Cobbins out, Pokes have no interior defense. I'm not scared.

    ISU could of easily won last night with a good shooting night. ISU struggled on offense, but played a great defensive game.

    That being said, I'd be shocked if KU had as many turnovers next time around.

    I don't think they'll beat them but I do think we'll be more prepared since Fred now has 3 days to gameplan for them rather than just 1.

    fify. We absolutely could play worse. I actually thought the D played well for the most part, especially in forcing 24 TOs. We could get half that many TOs next time, and the defensive rotation could be even worse. Gotta make shots, plain and simple. Those that are already calling the season a loss or are looking for the implosion are not looking at the right things.

    Looks like you've been around the block so I have to ask, have you been to a game at Phog?

    Do you have any idea what kind of advantage they have at home? (rhetorical). The arrogance is backed up with the W-L totals they have accumulated at home.

    Like other posters on here I think its possible, but the odds are slim, maybe 5-10% chance of winning at Phog. I love the environment we have at Hilton, I think it is second to only one, and that's Phog Allen. That place is traditionally where good teams go down.

    I watched KU play there on an "off" night, and it was like Hilton on a good (not great) night (hurts to say). Their home court advantage is at least 10 points.

    Bill Self is 76-5 at home during conference play. Let that sink in.

    After one game in that building, I walked away more impressed with our handful of wins there in the last two decades.

    We need our A+ game to win there, its possible, but probably not likely.

    EDIT: Even with all that said I will still be cheering like crazy for us to pull one off in that building. And my all time favorite quote, "It's just another Gym." -Jamaal Tinsley
