    Re: Hawaii

    What a great opportunity for the team to come together and "bond" over the next 7 days. 4 days in Hawaii and then they come back and spend Thanksgiving together at coach McD's house. I dont want to be accused of wearing my Cardinal & Gold glasses but I really like the direction this years team is heading.

    They are definitely heading in the right direction!

    I have my Cardinal and Gold glasses on. They fit too well for me to take them off


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.

    Re: Hawaii

    I hope they aren't too disappointed when they land. We're in the middle of a cold and rainy spell here on Oahu and the forecast is rain basically right up through when they leave. Of course a cold spell out here means lows in the mid-60s and highs in the low 80s so I guess its all relative.

    First off, It's cold and snowing in Ames right now, so 60s is better.

    Second, it's a business trip. I want them to play good basketball. If they got all wrapped up in the atmosphere then I'd worry they wouldn't be focused for the game..


    I don't drink the Kool-Aid, and I am done making excuses. Only keeping it real...

    Taking the glasses on and off is hard...I think we should just opt for Cardinal and Gold LASIK. No going back now....

    Re: Hawaii

    Here's a piece of mostly irrelevant trivia...

    Know when the last time was when we played in Hawaii on Thanksgiving weekend and beat Wisconsin-Milwaukee in the same season?

    1999-2000, and the UWM score was eerily similar to this year's...78-64.

    FYI: 2000 ended up being a pretty decent year.

    Disclaimer: This in no way implies that this year's team will be an Elite 8 team...although that would be really cool.

    Here's a game preview from the University of Hawaii. Looks like we've got a good shot to get our first road win of the season.

    Re: Hawaii

    I have not been a McD supporter at all but I like the fact they get this trip and then get a chance to play in the Rainbow Classic in a couple of years. I think the team getting a chance to bond like this is better then what some practice time can do.

    Hopefully this season starts a turnaround. If there was a chance to move up in the Big 12, it is this season so lets take advantage of it!

    This should answer your questions regarding the Rainbow Classic...

    So, our coach is at Idaho State, too? How does he manage to coach at two schools far apart that just happen to have the same logo?

    Hawaii needs a proofreader.

    Re: Hawaii

    Looks like this "Idaho State" is in the Big XII, too. What if both of his teams were to play in the tournament title game? Does he just coach from midcourt?

    Re: Hawaii

    As for Hawaii, that's a lot of freshmen and Juco transfers all at once. Not as though we don't have a ton of newcomers, but that stands out.
