    How important might Neb in Ames be?

    In looking at the upcoming schedule, it strikes me that the Nebraska game could be a very important one for us. After a potentially painful game @ Tx a win would be nice but more importantly the next best chance for a win might not be until 2/11 when Colorado comes to town. I know that Co looks pretty bad but expecting a win in their house is tough (1/27). For the sake of this teams psyche, I hope we play well and pull out a W on wednesday. Even if Co is bad, I'd hate to play them at 0-8 and NEEDING a win.
    Even if we look good this weekend, getting an actual W on the board will be huge next week.


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    Personally, I'm a little worried about this game...It's one of those games where we might have to go small.

    Nebraska plays very hard. If we do not, we lose.

    It's OK. We'll beat Texas this weekend and all your fears will be for naught.

    Re: How important might Neb in Ames be?

    Yep, at that point my only concern would be how high we end up seeded in the tourney after running through the conference

    The same importance as every other Big 12 game.

    It's important because you have to protect home court and it is one of the few we have a shot at winning.

    I'll only make one guarantee about the Big 12 season. We will beat someone we shouldn't beat, and we'll lose to someone we shouldn't lose to. All games will be important.

    Re: How important might Neb in Ames be?

    There isn't a game on the Big 12 schedule you can say is going to be an easy win right now. I'm being optimistic hoping we can go 8-8 which would put us as 19-12 on the season and hopefully get us a NIT bid. Winning just 5 or 6 games wouldn't shock me either too though. You never know which team is going to show up on a given night for us right now.

    True...but there also isn't a game where I feel like we have no chance...Maybe Oklahoma.

    Re: How important might Neb in Ames be?

    You are so right, the Nebraska game will be key for the Big 12 season! We need a win to get started off on the right foot and build confidence, and we have to win our winnable home games if we want any shot at a decent season. It is a must win! And we should be able to win this.... of course we well know that we are capable of losing to anyone.

    Re: How important might Neb in Ames be?

    If we lose to Nebby it will be hard to get me back to Hilton. That sounds fairweather (and it is by definition) but my schedule is a nightmare and taking 6-7 hours to watch bad basketball just isn't worth it. We'll win and the point will be moot.

    Don't worry. I sell or give away my unused tickets.

    Great point and it has me concerned as well. I hope that the improved play of Hamilton we may try to make them matchup against us instead of the other way around.
