    Minnesota favored by 7

    WOW.... I know we are not getting any respect, but I do not see any way in hizell we lose this game by 7 or more. Minnesota is god awful, and our defense should be overwhelming.

    What do you all think? Am I missing something?? I know Lawerence McKenzie transferred to MU, but still....

    I guess I feel about 60/40 on this game. 60% chance of a win.

    Re: Minnesota favored by 7

    I have not seen Minnestoa yet, but from what I have seen from our team so far, we have a long ways to go before we can match others in the Big 12 conference. If it was in Hilton, I bet we would be favored. But with our young team going on the road for the first time this year, I dont think 7 points is too bad!!

    Re: Minnesota favored by 7

    I agree with chuck, 7 points is reasonable, if not a bit forgiving. Until they put in a quality road effort, there's reason to doubt this year's squad.

    EDIT: I wonder if there's going to be an element of revenge coming from the Minnesota bench. How many players are still playing on their team that lost to us in the first round of the NCAA tourney in 2005?

    There is no way we are winning on the road for at least half a dozen games. Having said that, I would like to see GMac prove me wrong..

    I would agree to some extent, but this is probably our easiest road game on the pre-conference schedule.

    Re: Minnesota favored by 7

    We turn the ball over way too much, and I predict we really struggle on the road until that gets corrected. I say, if we turn the ball over less than 13 times we win; more than 13, we lose.

    I disagree.... GMac won on the road throughout his entire career with subpar players, playing great defense, and playing balls to the wall. I do not think he has ever had this level of talent as he does now, and I think we have a shot at winning tonight, and if we do not, I think it is going to be only by a few points.

    Regardless, it is an exciting time and fun to guess.

    I COMPELTELY disagree with this, Stout and Coleman would have started for ISU this year and last, Ben Jacobson was a good player, and they had some nice complementary players as well. He might not have had the athletes he does now, but that's not all it takes to play basketball.

    Re: Minnesota favored by 7

    Minnesota is a horrible team....they got manhandled by Division II Winona State. Now I haven't seen ISU play yet this year, I've only read about us, as tonight will be my first live game all season. But I think that we will be able to win by 5-10 points.

    Re: Minnesota favored by 7

    We've played 4 cupcakes and still have one returning starter. I don't think the guys in Vegas give a rip about "our potential."

    7 points is pretty reasonable IMO. I would probably take us in that bet if I had to choose though.

    Re: Minnesota favored by 7

    7 is fair in my book. We have played 4 pretty bad teams and only one was a decisive win. These were all at home.

    Going on the road to a Big 10 team is going to be quite different. I am looking forward to seeing us in our road red tonight.

    Re: Minnesota favored by 7

    I definitely do not think this is unrealistic...we're very inexperienced and on the road....Do we have the talent to do it? YES! Do we have the experience and mental toughness? We'll find out...

    Re: Minnesota favored by 7

    i saw on one site that their big man is listed a s questionable with a sore ankle. If he cant go 100% itll really help us out. Hes a wide body that could hurt us. I wanna take the 7 pts sooo bad, but its really early in the season, who knows what kind of team we have. I ve seen us play
    In Minn. defense, i believe Winona St. won the div 2 national championship.
