    Re: Texas at Iowa State predictions.

    We will win by 6-8. Ridley will get in foul trouble because refs love to call fouls on the road team (especially the bigs) and the ridiculous, unforced turnovers from the game in Austin won't happen.

With lots of long shots come long rebounds and ISU was able to get hold of many of those, which also helped. But the superior size of Texas pounded ISU on the interior, drawing lots of fouls, which sent them to the line for high percentage free throws and putting an ISU team that isn't very deep in foul trouble. I alos remember the length of Texas defenders being a big reason ISu had so many turnovers. I think ISU has to get Ridley and/or Holmes out of the game in foul trouble for long stretches to have a good shot at winning. They were close in Austin, but Texas prevailed. Since Texas isn't getting any smaller, ISU needs to figure out what changes can be made. They'll either need to get the Texas bigs moving more side to side and drive past them or make more threes. I am cheering for ISu to win this game to help KU out in the standings, but I think it will very very hard. Until ISU proves thay can beat a team with big strong post players I will pick Texas.
    Ok

    Re: Texas at Iowa State predictions.

    Will people please stop predicting home losses now? Only reason to predict a home loss is if we are playing KU or some other nationally elite team from another conference.
