    Should win by a lot. It's weird to think that with a loss we are tied with them for 7th.

    Beating them by more than 20 is highly unlikely...

    I would temper those expectations. Would be glad just to come away with a victory!

    For some reason I am more concerned about our team beating Texas Tech tomorrow than I am beating Texas on Tuesday...

    Hope I'm wrong!

    Re: *** Official Texas Tech at Iowa State Game (Day) Thread ***

    I'm not sure I have the stomach to predict a blowout victory for ISU in light of what the Cyclones did Monday and what the Red Raiders did in Norman. Heck, we struggled to put away the worst team in the conference on our home floor last Saturday, so why would we be able to beat a surging Tech team by 20? The people who think that is likely have been watching a different Iowa State team from the one I've seen.

    Early in conference play we had some bad shooting games from behind the arc and people attributed it to having off nights. We've had a lot of off nights through the first 11 games, which is why we're dead last in three point percentage, which is unbelievable considering how good we were last year. Niang has turned into our most consistent threat from outside, while the guards Thomas and Long are not quite the dead-eye shooters we hoped at the beginning of the year. I think we just have to accept the fact this is not a good three-point shooting team and that we should stop taking so many of them.

    I think we can all agree Iowa State is not the 11th best team in the country. They are probably more like the 20th best team.
