    UNI favored by 7.5 - Thoughts?

    OK, just want to get everyone's thoughts.... Last week, I thought Minnesota being favored was crazy... but ended up ok.... Am I wrong here in thinking that UNI should not be favorite by 7.5??

    I understand that UNI is BIG and may destroy us down low, but I think McD will come out with a plan to shut down Coleman.... Hubalek returns, and our players are competing with confidence....

    Thoughts??

    Re: UNI favored by 7.5 - Thoughts?

    7.5 seems fair enough. I like playing as the underdog. I think this will be a tough game because of the emotions involved.

    GMac knows the UNI team as well as his own. Hopefully, he can exploit known weaknesses.

    We're more athletic, but they will play a cleaner game with fewer mistakes.

    At best, it's a tossup for us. Probably slight advantage UNI.

    Re: UNI favored by 7.5 - Thoughts?

    I think the fact it is in a dome helps stretch the spread out. +7.5 to ISU seems right this early in the year with all that is new.

    UNI plays great BB and tends to play ISU the toughest in their rival games.

    While I think ISU can cover and win, I am not sure enough to put $$ on it with my bookie.

    - keep.

    Re: UNI favored by 7.5 - Thoughts?

    they have a lot more to play for (getting a "W" against their old coach who recruited them) and the fact its at UNI makes it that much tougher. I see UNI really pressing Taylor and forcing our other guys to come up with the points. 7.5 is fair because of that.

    I think they key for ISU to win this game.... not just cover, is to take care of the ball. If we haev less turnovers than UNI, i think we win.

    I don't mind being the underdogs all year really. Makes it sweeter when we do better than people expect us to. With higher expectations comes added pressure: see this year's FB team.

    Corey or Dodie break out tonight...double-double with pts and assists. Dish the ball to Wes and Clark all night

    Is the game in the Dome. I heard the ISU assistant say it's hard to play there but he might have just slipped up. Anyone know. I though it would be in there new place.

    Nope, it's in the Dome. And I think the line is about right.

    What about Taylor? Feed the man the rock. The only time I like to see Clark w/ the ball is on an offensive rebound and when his feet are set behind the 3 line. Please don't dribble Clark!

    It is in the Dome because they want to sale more tickets. Even though there is still last I heard 6,500 tickets sold so there are still many left.

    Their new place only holds 7,500 so they have to play their big games in the dome. Doesn't make sense to me. Y not just build a bigger arena?

    Yeah i thought iwas in the Dome as well, but KXNO said this morning that it was in the Mcloed Center. Either way, I think UNI is a MUCH better team then Minnesota, and 7.5 seems about fair.
