    What NC Games Do We Lose?

    Just reading some other threads and see some people talking about how many non-conference games we could lose. Let's look at the remaining non-conference schedule and see what games you truly think we have a chance of losing. I know we are young so could slip up on a couple but I really only see 1 or 2 possible losses but also think we have a chance to run the table in the non-conference schedule. Again this is just an opinion and I was wondering what some of you think.

    @ Hawaii- They have lost to San Francisco and Cal St Fullerton and then were taken to OT and only beat Idaho St by 3. Not likely we will lose unless the kids get caught up in being in Hawaii but hopefully McD makes sure they know it's a business trip.

    Miss Valley St- 3 losses to AZ St by 16, Washington St by 51 (only scored 25 pts total), and Oklahoma by 41 . Should win this one.

    @ UNI- Beat Denver at home by 5. Play back to back games against Marquette and Auburn the week before we play them. I think we win this one also.

    Oregon St- Lost to Howard 47-45 and then Howard in turn went and lost to Navy. Not too impressed by this, I think we win.

    Drake- Played Butler tough, but have a new coach and lost some good players. I say we win this game but could be the one we slip up in.

    @ Iowa- Beings how it's at Carver and these games are normally close I think we could lose this game w/our youth, but they are pretty young also. I'm split on this game.

    Jacksonville St- Lost to South Carolina 89-76. A game we should win.

    South Dakota St- Enough said

    @ Houston- Lost to Georgia Southern at home. Plays Miss Valley State on 12/13 so could have a better idea seeing them play a common opponent. I think we still win

    Mercer- Might be a good thing this ones at Hilton. They beat Alabama by 3 at Alabama. I think Hilton Magic pulls us through it.

    SIU-Edwardsville- WHO? Sounds like an Iowa 8-man high school football team w/all those letters and names. We win

    Houston Baptist- Lost to Marquette by 31 and Middle Tennessee Stat by 17. The Clones win this one also.

    Outside chance to get them all...Most dangerous are probably Iowa and Houston.

    We can win all of them. I can also see us losing to Hawaii, Houston, Drake, UNI and Iowa.

    I'll give you Houston and Iowa. I've read quite a bit on Hawaii and really think the only way we lose is if we aren't mentally prepared and just stink it up. I think McD will make it a point to win in Cedar Falls this year and Drake just has too much newness in the program to worry me at this point. That could change if they show some life over their next few games before us.

    do you have a blog "write up" about win on Sunday? I figured that game would HAVE to give you something good to say about the team.

    Lucca 4-5 from 3 land

    Breaking 3 ball record

    lots of positive stuff ...

    -keep.

    Don't know who the culprits will be and the above are most likely, but I see us coming away from non-conf. with 3-4 losses.

    Of course I hope we win them all.

    Let's have little more positive attitude. I think ISU can definitely win every single non-conference games.

    Re: What NC Games Do We Lose?

    I'll vote for winning all of them. I'm only concerned about the in-state games. Those always seem to be close.

    Re: What NC Games Do We Lose?

    Iowa and Houston stood out the most to me so far. Mercer surprises me, but how good is Alabama? I'm really not sure, and haven't looked it up yet.

    I really want to be with a bunch of Cyclones in Carver-Hawkeye chanting "Cyclone State!"

    Re: What NC Games Do We Lose?

    The one's I'm worried about are UNI, Drake, Iowa, Houston and Mercer. They will tell us alot about the season. The rest I don't think will

    Re: What NC Games Do We Lose?

    I'd say probably 2-3 NC losses...I would hope for less but I think we lose a bad one at home to a Mercer or Drake. And I really dont see us winning all of our road games. My guess would be slip ups at Houston and Iowa.

    Re: What NC Games Do We Lose?

    I think they are all winnable, but chances are we lose at least 2-3. Iowa and UNI could be the culprits. The Hawaii game worries me mainly because of the travel and distractions, but we should be the better team. Hopefully we are all rested.

    Aren't we at home against Houston?

    EDIT: Sorry, I was thinking Houston-Baptist.

    That's Houston Baptist we're at home against. Houston is a road game.
