    UNI WBB Non-Con Schedule

    The UNI WBB team posted their non-conference schedule yesterday and ISU is not on it. Does anyone know why we aren't playing them this next season?

    They've had enough of Fennelly ball apparently.

    Re: UNI WBB Non-Con Schedule

    Too bad for them, but it reminds me of how ISU scheduled (see article on Bill) when it came to Iowa in the pre-Bill days. If you can't compete drop 'em.

    Re: UNI WBB Non-Con Schedule

    Tanya greatly dislikes real competition. She had a chance to make her program the best in the Valley with the wealth of talent Tony D left her and her recruiting ties, but she takes the easy way out. Recruits small town Iowa kids with no other offers and repeatedly refuses to take buy games or enter tournaments with higher competition levels.

    She will never be fired at UNI, she knows it, and is thrilled to finish 3-5th every year in the Valley. Her reputation is out there too. She should have been able to get a better job after her two NCAA appearances, but everybody knows she has no drive or desire and greatly despises actual work to make a program better.

    So even less incentive for fans to come to games.

    Wasn't she just named Coach of the Year in the Valley. You don't get that for just setting on your hands and singing Cher songs. She took a very young team and turned them into a top five Valley squad. About recruiting Iowa kids, they recruit kids with upside and then develop it. The Valley isn't the Big 12 and thus we should not expect UNI to compete with the Cyclones. Lastly, how do you know that it was UNI that didn't want to play the Cyclones, maybe it was the other way around.

    Re: UNI WBB Non-Con Schedule

    Fennelly has always talked about how important to him it is to play all three in-state D-1 programs. So I would be very surprised if this decision was even remotely considered by Iowa State.

    I do find it interesting that UNI plays at Iowa this year, as per usual. Iowa State would have made a trip to Cedar Falls. It's all fine by me. I'd rather play all the in-state schools every year, but we can always get some other directional university to play.


    All people who make sweepingly generalized, stupid, uninformed comments are idiots.

    (maybe)

    Re: UNI WBB Non-Con Schedule

    I'm with Buster on this one. Why would you play a very talented and loaded Iowa squad and not ISU? Is it because UNI is Iowa-lite? (yes, that was a bad joke).

    Re: UNI WBB Non-Con Schedule

    Not that I want to squelch all the fun speculation, but it's possible it could be as simple as not finding a date that worked for both schools.

    That said the scheduling of Dartmouth at UNI on Sat. Dec. 13 for the first time looks a little odd. Sometimes ISU has played UNI right before or after finals week.

    Buster is 100% right. If you know Bill he is all about playing all the in state schools.
