    Texas Loss to Arkansas=Trouble for ISU

    Any hopes I had that we could sneak up on Texas went out the window because Texas just lost one on the road to Arkansas.

    Or they'll be reeling and we'll put 'em down! (I do not believe this, but have to try to spin it somehow )

    we'd have to be firing on all cylinders to even keep it close but who knows that's why you play the game

    Re: Texas Loss to Arkansas=Trouble for ISU

    Regardless, assuming we don't pull the upset, it is only one loss. I'd rather get it out of the way now than later if we are in a position where we need it.

    We play the game for a reason - anything can happen. Hopefully we can frustrate them on D and hit a few 3's, then move it inside to CB.....It's always tough in Austin though.

    I know there's a lot of McDermott bashers on here, but you can't deny that we've played Texas really tough these last two years when we had no business doing so.

    I recall the Cyclones taking the Longhorns into overtime last year. I do not expect anything of that nature again, but ANYTHING is possible.

    I'm pretty sure just playing Texas is trouble for ISU whether or not they win or lose....

    Re: Texas Loss to Arkansas=Trouble for ISU

    We only lost 77-68 in Austin during the 06-07 season, that was McDermott's first year. That was a much better Texas squad (Kevin Durant) than their squad this year. Hopefully it's not too brutal but we'll see how much heart our team actually has.

    I think you're right. They knocked off Oklahoma last week as well. I'm guessing the hogs will be making an appearance in the top 25 shortly.


    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Austin is really not a tough basketball venue as far as the Big 12 goes. Not incredible fan support for MBB, gym is huge, and crowd is kind of far from the court. Now if you are saying Austin is tough because the team they field on the court has been good for the better part of 7 years, then I agree with you and it will be very tough.

    You are probably right. The psyche of the team is huge in college sports. Often, it depends on the loss.


    ISU fans are the greatest in the world. All they ask for is hope and the belief that we have a chance to win every time we step on the field - Johnny Majors (paraphrased)

    At least we should be ready after that crappy performance.
