    I say we cancel the Cap City League.

    What do we really get outta it. I know everyone thinks this is typical since we lost to Drake, but why should we let them scrimmage us all summer long? Thoughts?

    We can scrimmage against former players still in Ames, they can play with the bums and meth-heads downtown.

    That's a little drastic. It's pretty much just pick-up games. There is no game planning involved.

    Re: I say we cancel the Cap City League.

    How many fans (over 14 yrs old) remember losing to Drake 3 times in a row? That never happened prior to the Cap City League. It's a 100% legitimate question and one I've been quietly wondering about the past 3 years. We started that and coincidentally Drake starts playing their *** off. They're seeing the rewards for that league since they only get to practice against their awful scrubs otherwise.

    Now they get to play against our best and learn our tendencies, etc... Legitimate question.

    Re: I say we cancel the Cap City League.

    Playing with players from other teams gives more insight than you will ever know. You learn the weaknesses and strengths of players more than you would just watching tape!

    You think that if you are on the team with Player X from ISU (you are from Drake) and you see Player X working on his shot from the left side because it is weak. You don't think you will exploit that to win against them in regular play? (Little example, but it is after 10:30 and I'm tired)


    Just in case you didn't know... I'm a girl.

    Alot? Iowa 31-7 against UNI, only loss ever to UNI in Iowa City in 2006. Iowa is 3-4 in the last 7, but 6-4 in the last 10

    Iowa 53-9 against Drake, with their only win in Carver two years ago.

    No, Iowa's and Iowa State's recent rough patches have nothing to do with the Cap City or Prime Time leagues, and everything to Iowa and ISU being down with Drake and UNI at arguably all-time highs the past 5-10 years.

    When ISU escapes from their relative low and drake from it's relative peak, things will go back to normal.

    Hey HawkeyeGuy -I think your numbers to help the argument against the leagues though? How long has the league been around, maybe 7 years? 3-4 compared to 28-3 is a striking difference. Fact is UNI isn't scared of Iowa anymore (till tonight!). Same with Drake and ISU, while they still can't beat Iowa, they aren't scared of us anymore.

    See Drake hiring of Tom Davis as reason for that not that Cap City.

    Personally i want the players playing the best competition they can in the off season.

    I can see your point, but I agree with the last poster, you had Davis hired at Drake and built them from a doormat into a respectable Valley team, and McDermott who elevated UNI into a tourney team.

    I guess I think Drake and UNI just being much improved from what they were 8, 10, 15 years ago and Iowa State and Iowa not nearly as good as they were in the 90s as a bigger factor in closing that gap then these summer leagues.

    I'm confused. Can't we learn about them the same way they learn about us? Why is the Cap City League an advantage to Drake?


    Dean Wormer was wrong. Fat, drunk and stupid was a great way to go through college (all five years of it).
