    Iowa Over ISU in Basketball ???

    So i tuned into Cyclone Wednesday on the Jon Miller show today. It was really was Husker, Hawkeye BB, Cyclone, Panther Wednesday. Which is ok because we all know Jon is becoming a Cyclone fan and he is just trying to hide his love for the Clones and doenst want to upset the Hawkeye fan base.

    Jon W and L Iowa's schedule and he said Iowa would beat ISU this year. He also said they would beat Drake and UNI. Sorry Jon Iowa will not win all these games. Granted ISU isnt going to be great but what makes you think Iowa will beat them. Lets not forget you said over and over that last years Iowa team was the worse that you can remember. How can they just bounce back that fast.

    I wouldn't bet a penny on us playing in Carver.

    I really hope we don't lose to them.....any resemblance of them being farther along in the rebuilding stage will not look good.

    Its not like Carver is that big of home court advantage. I mean besides the fact there are 5000 fans there and they need to add some lights.

    We lost our best three players and are a horrible road team. I'd put money down on Iowa in Carver.

    I guess my expectations for ISU men's basketball are at an all time low.

    Re: Iowa Over ISU in Basketball ???

    If it's Cyclone Wednesday, then I would say he was doing that to get a rise out of his fanbase to get us to call him and tell him why he's full of crap. Otherwise anything other then blind, dumb, homeristic, nutjob opinions would never come out of anyone with a thread of objectivity.

    I'm not saying, I'm just saying......

    Well for Iowa fan they should be the same for the Hawks. I'm not saying ISU will be good either, but Iowa isnt going to be world beaters either.

    Jon said Iowa would beat Drake the last two years. He's good at predicting stuff.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    yup. Second that. Couple it with the fact that I'm just not that into basketball in general, and we're bordering on apathy here. On the other hand, we could have some pigs dressed in cardinal and gold jerseys playing football, and I would probably get excited about it...

    Thankfully this is just week 2 of football season and I am not even close to thinking about basketball yet... unlike last year at this time.

    And here we are talking about a show hosted by a Huge Hawk fan saying things to make you post, validating his show, backing and flavor.

    Re: Iowa Over ISU in Basketball ???

    I heard it too. The Iowa BB schedule just came out today, so he was giving his "first impression" prediction of the Hawks schedule.

    Apparently he did the same thing for the Cyclones last week (I missed that one) and had us going 19-12. He has the Hawks going 18-13. He qualified it by saying it was his first impression only, and will likely change after he has the opportunity to look into it some more, so don't read much into it.

    I agree that we'll probably not win at Carver, but I doubt Iowa sweeps the in-state teams.

    look at our record there. it is a good enough home court advantage against us if not against the rest of the country.
