    Re: Texas at Iowa State predictions.

    In the last minute, a loose ball goes off the leg of a Texas player while no other players are in the vicinity. Refs rule it went off a Cyclone despite there not being one within five feet from the play. Play is stopped so refs can look at the tape. Despite obvious evidence that it should be ISU ball, they still award the ball to Texas. Fred's pacemaker explodes. CPR rushes out of the tunnel and punches the ref in the face.

    Re: Texas at Iowa State predictions.

    I am taking my oldest daughter to her first game (well, second, but she was 3 at the last one and doesn't remember it). I hope she'll remember this one as an exciting ISU victory. Good guys by 13...85-72.

    No reason to think we're going to drop a game we should win at Hilton. I think we win by about 6 or 7.

    We will get a double digit lead Texas will call a timeout and we lose lead other than that who knows, just hope we win.

    Exactly. We've lost only to Kansas at Hilton since last season. I don't expect to lose at home again this year.

    Our last non-Kansas loss in Hilton was a conference game against Missouri (Jan 2012)

    Re: Texas at Iowa State predictions.

    This is going to be tough. It would be nice if Hilton could be crazy and full again, but I doubt that will happen, for whatever reason. Probably not an important enough game to get the students' attention.

    This is something of a trap game for Texas. If they are looking forward to their next game with Kansas on Saturday, they may be a little bit distracted. On the other hand, that game only means as much as it does if they beat ISU on Tuesday. Texas has 3 conference losses, KU two.

    Imho, Texas has been every bit as impressive as KU this year, at least in conference. They have won 9 or their last 10. I just don't think ISU can handle them inside. Unless ISU can get Texas' bigs of Holmes and Ridley in early foul trouble, I don't see ISU getting the win. I hope I'm wrong.

    Re: Texas at Iowa State predictions.

    We were on the verge of blowing them out in Austin until a 3 point thunder dunk was transformed into zero points and foul trouble for our star player. Could we lose? Sure. But pounding them into oblivion the way the previous game started is more likely.

    All were close, 3 were against the bottom half, and the loss was the worst of the season. The OSU win is still good but they've lost 6 straight, and the TCU game had Mel's 48, but it shouldn't have been close.

    Instead of flailing, I'll say, not performing as well as they are able to.

    Re: Texas at Iowa State predictions.

    2 home games in 4 days. Gotta love it.

    Win or lose, it will be a hard fought game throughout.

    Re: Texas at Iowa State predictions.

    I think this is going to be a game where not being able to make free throws does us in.

    Texas: 75
    Iowa State: 73

    We have won 4/5 but:
    2 of those wins were ugly against bad teams (Oklahoma State/TCU)
    1 of those wins was ugly against an average team (Texas Tech)
    1 of those wins was a good win (Oklahoma)
    and the loss was an absolutely *** kicking (West Virginia).

    4 out of 5 in the W column and 4 out of 5 in the "didn't play welll" category. You can only play with fire so many times before you get burned. Good teams burn you. If we don't wake up and play well down the stretch 10-8 is an ugly possibility.

    Re: Texas at Iowa State predictions.

    I was at the game in Austin. Still drives me nuts how badly we came out of halftime and allowed Texas to jump all over us. We were clearly the better team most of the first half. Ridley and Holmes destroyed us in the paint, they will be a tough matchup again so we better be hitting our shots.

    With how strong the Big 12 is this year, expecting frequent blowouts isn't realistic. Tech has only lost one conference game by double figures and that was ISU in Lubbock. TCU isn't a pushover anymore and the West Virginia game was the first time all year that the team played really badly (compared to several times the past few seasons). I'm really surprised at how pessimistic/unrealistic a large segment of the fan base is given our 19-5 record and probable position as a top 5 seed.

    Oklahoma State is far from a "bad" team, especially in Stillwater. That statement is laughable.
