    Tubby Smith and UM want to set up home and home with ISU.

    Recruits to visit Tubby this month (Gopher Sports)
    - While talking about the announced 2008-09 schedule Wednesday, Tubby Smith said he was trying to find a home and home matchup with an opponent that would be a big boost to the program. Smith said he would consider starting something with Iowa State, which had played Minnesota the past couple years. "It's a regional rivalry," he said. "I know coach (Greg) McDermott does a great job with his program."

    he's getting Minny too good in the one year he's been there. How bout we play a home n home with a big name, but not a program on the rise. Can we play Iowa twice?!?

    I think we should play them. You have to play regional "name" teams. I would love to see us play Illinois, Northwestern, etc. I love this Chicago tournament thing they are doing next year.

    Re: Tubby Smith and UM want to set up home and home with ISU.

    I took home-n-home to mean we play at Minn one year and at Hilton the next year. I think that would be a great set up. How about other schools like Marquette, Bradley, DePaul, or Wisconsin. I think it could develop into some great rivalries and natural RPI boosters. Sure, we might take our lumps some years but I think it would help build our program by helping with recruiting in areas like Chicago.

    I'd much rather play a good team. Not only is it better preparation for your team for conference play (which is what counts), but it looks a whole lot better when you win.

    I love all your work for basketball... but thinking about basketball is just way to depressing.

    Re: Tubby Smith and UM want to set up home and home with ISU.

    I can see why Tubby wants to schedule us. :( I would, too.
    I enjoyed the series with Minnesota and hope it continues. I'd much rather watch ISU play a Big 10 team than some directional school from the south that nobody has ever seen. Minnesota is definitely on the rise but I'm hopeful we can get there soon, too.

    What's depressing? The fact that football will be over then?

    I can't see anything to be depressed about...at worst, waiting to see how things shake out. At best, relishing the thought of seeing the development of Craig, Lucca, Diante...

    Minnesota would be a good match. A better name to put butts in the seats than many on the schedule.

    It's just me being selfish, but I like having one big name over holiday break. The last couple years the only games I've made it to have been the games over break while I'm home with my parents. I made it to both the Minnesota game in Ames and Minneapolis and hope there can be more of them in the future.

    This would continue to be a great fit for us for a lot of reasons. RPI, Recruiting, money, T.V.

    I love games against other teams from major conferences. The more, the better.

    I thought Minn didnt want to play ISU this coming season.
