    What are our chances at Nebraska tomorrow?

    I'll admit I don't follow the ladies as closely as I should, but they are playing at NE tomorrow and if they win they'll be 8-8 which will be a tremendous accomplishment based on the hardships the team has had this year.

    I know they are in the tourney in the bracketology sites and whatnot, but do they still have work to do? Can they get in with a losing Big 12 record, if they lose tomorrow? If they do lose, will they have to win some Big 12 tourney games to play their way in?

    Just curious at this point. I hope they make it. I think it'd set them up well for next year when they get everybody back and hopefully they can make a big run next year with more experience for the backups and hopefully a healthy Ross and Weiben.

    Slim and None. Nebraska is good, and Connie Yori knows how to beat Bill's teams But, Bryce and other Cyclone fans, you are missing a good thing if you are not following this team. They play the best defense of any of Bill's teams, take care of the ball, and never give up. And they will get an invite if they do nothing more this season. The Big 12 is very good, and deep.

    I believe they beat us at home this year right after our second injury to Weiben? I definately think they can do it. They have played with the BEST Big XII teams without Ross and Weiben. I would expect them to do it again. Hopefully they can win 2 games in the Big XII tourney.

    All I gotta say, is that Bill Fennelly is sitting on our bench. You bet we can win this. Go Cyclones!

    Re: What are our chances at Nebraska tomorrow?

    i think we can win this game... this is a huge game tho.. tourny or no tourny this year.. BF def did an outstanding job coaching, and the players stepped up big time, and i think the entire team has grown alot this year...

    but i have a random ?

    with Ross now coming back next year (as far as we know) does that mean the scholly we had is now taken again? or how does that stuff work?


    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."

    Yes, they beat us at Hilton, but that was with Nebraska shooting 110% from the field. They simply couldn't miss that night. At the 15:00 mark of the first half it was already 21-5 because they kept hitting 3s. We definitely fought ourselves back, but like the men, they couldn't get over the hump.

    Yeah, Toccara should still be on scholarship as we only had 14 scholarship players slated to be here for 2008-09 before she got her medical redshirt (out of the allowed 15). Basically what is happening is Toccara is taking the scholarship left by Gillian Bjerke when she left the team at semester. I believe this is correct at least...someone more in the know can correct me if I'm wrong...

    You have it correct. I think.

    Next year's squad should be fun to watch.

    The only correction is that Brittany Lange is a walk on and therefore not using a scholarship.

    They have a chance to win the game, but not a great chance to win it. Like Phaedrus said, we have Bill Fennelly sitting on our bench so you bet the girls will be ready to play tomorrow.

    what this game comes down to is if the 3 is falling for us and if theres isnt...

    also if we can keep the game in the 60s i think that will be in our favor

    The game is on in Public TV on NET1 in Omaha. Maybe channelsurfing can pick it up.

    I was just curious, Is anyone going to be making the trip over to Lincoln? I read a post that said that Cyclone Alley is taking 50 students. I am taking off here pretty soon and going with 4 of my buddies!! Go Clones!!
