    Fear and Loathing

    We have lost two starters off a team picked in the middle of the conference. Bill had settled on a seven player rotation with little playing time for the others. I fear we may not be competitive in league play and loath going through a season of losing WBB. I'd prefer this was the open date so Bill would have more time. We played NU last year the first game Medders was out and without time to make adjustments - we did not fare well. The glimmer of hope here is that Anderson is a pretty good player in her own right and Amanda been fantastic at times. Today will be a good demo since NU has a strong front line and will test the paint.

    I think now it will be an absolute miracle to finish with a .500 conference record.

    Before Wieben's injury, I would have been disappointed if they only finished at .500.

    Before the injury they should have been in 4-5th place. I hope they can make 7th-8th place now.

    The optimist in me just thinks back to Lindsey Wilson's senior season. That team that was over-matched at every position except the point and managed to go 7-9 in Big 12 play.

    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."
