    Good for you. How big of a loser do you have to be to come to another teams board and run your mouth? I bet you're the tool that sat in front of me at the Big 12 tournament that stood up and flexed his non-existent muscles every time Kansas scored. Get a life man.

    Re: Iowa State vs South Carolina

    Usually when we try to get a good high major for a home and home they expect us to play on the road the first game. This year we already play a high major on the road. I'm not saying it won't still happen, but at this point, playing the round robin schedule in conference is tougher than most other conferences, and with McKay not eligible yet, maybe it isn't the right year to start one.

    They are ok. They have harrow the Kentucky transfer. Ware the Louisville transfer and hollowell the Indiana transfer both have to sit out this year. Ware is trying to get a waiver.

    If South Carolina wasn't so terrible I would be a little more excited. Will be a bad loss if we lose this, expected to win.

    Re: Iowa State vs South Carolina

    For those saying this game is for Diallo to come check us out, you guys realize he'll most likely already be committed by then, right?

    I'm fine with this game. The opponent is definitely a little underwhelming but the only way I'll be upset with this game is if it takes the place of the home-home we're trying to schedule right now.

    Re: Iowa State vs South Carolina

    I assume this isn't the high major the staff was talking about, if it is yikes this non-con schedule is bad...

    Re: Iowa State vs South Carolina

    They weren't our top pick, but Iowa State is having trouble finding good teams who want to come to Hilton right now.

    Sucks that everyone is a bunch of ******* about playing us at Hilton. Nothing we can do about that.

    Re: Iowa State vs South Carolina

    Travis Hines tweeted a story about non-con scheduling:

    ISU tried to get home-and-homes with Minnesota and Nebraska and were rebuffed.

    ESPN wanted to set up a two-game series between ISU and Gonzaga at neutral sites (potentially Corn Palace in Mitchell, SD and Moda Center in Portland, OR) but we didn't want to do that.

    So, instead we went with the NYC game.

    That's what they all say. Yet somehow all these other teams manage to book tough home/home series with each other even though it means playing tough road games.

    It's a little different when you're a storied blue blood program with history. Maybe down the road it will change, but right now teams like Kentucky or Duke don't want to come to Hilton and "lose to a team like Iowa State". Michigan booked us before knowing what Fred was doing, and they now wish they hadn't come to Hilton. Their coach even came out a few months ago and said he's glad he doesn't have to come back to Hilton.

    That Gonzaga series would have been excellent, especially at the Sprint Center or Century Link Arena.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: Iowa State vs South Carolina

    I totally want better competition in our Non-con. I think ISU is a top 10 possibly top 5 team next year. They are stacked, and have depth. Not predicting a #1 but I think it's within the realm of possibility. Hoiberg has already got us to near perennial potential.

    I can't even make a starting line up prediction because there too many good players to choose from.
    Best I can figure:

    Morris Custer
    BDJ Long\Thomas
    Hogue<--?-->Nader
    Niang Nader
    McKay Edozie

    Length, athleticism, re bounders, toughness, shooters, rim protectors, depth, experience.... I'm so ready for this season.

    Dang, that Gonzaga neutral site series would have been awesome. A lot better than South Carolina.
