    Next 4 Games (schedule gets easier)

    How will our cyclones fair in the next four contests? We have.........
    @ Kansas State
    vs. Missouri
    vs. Colorado
    @ Oklahoma State

    4 wins - unrealistic imo, achieved only by bringing our A game every night which won't happen (again imo)
    3 wins - would be awesome, maybe possible but would be a surprise
    2 wins - about what should be expected, we shouldn't lose to colorado no matter what and we will win one of the other games if diante shows up
    1 win - dissapointing and shouldn't happen
    0 wins - will not happen imo

    really, i think we'll beat k-state on the road. i know we don't play well on the road in conference, but this is our best shot of a conference road win. k-state is almost as bad as colorado and we aren't cursed at bremlage.

    Re: Next 4 Games (schedule gets easier)

    I think we should expect 2 wins and hope for 3
    4 is possible if we play like we did today, but highly unlikely

    K-state is playing good bball right now (blew out Mizzou and up 10 right now in Austin). And we hardly ever win at Bremlage.

    Re: Next 4 Games (schedule gets easier)

    I've seen nothing to suggest we can go on the road and win. I also don't think we match up with Mizzu well at all.

    CU should be an almost sure win. Should be...

    Re: Next 4 Games (schedule gets easier)

    Kansas State has won 2 in a row and is leading @ Texas by 10 at half. That is a loss. (pomeroy gives us 10% chance)

    Missou is a bad matchup -- very likely loss (pomeroy - 15%)

    Colorado- obviously should win (80%)

    OK st -L (10%)


    1-3 is most likely

    Re: Next 4 Games (schedule gets easier)

    The fact that 2 are on the road I don't think we can really count on more than 2 wins, I hope we show up for them but we never do on the road. Mizzou will be tough and we should beat Colorado. I am hoping at least 2 but I expect just 1.

    Re: Next 4 Games (schedule gets easier)

    We will most likely go 1-3 with Colorado being our lone win. I do think we'll play some good games and have chances to win, but haven't seen us prove that we can do it very often (and not on the road).

    Re: Next 4 Games (schedule gets easier)

    I don't know about easier, have you looked at the standings in the Big 12. Being tied for last I don't see any easy games.

    They will go 1-3 beating Colorado. I agree about the road games, until I see otherwise I will not pick them to win a game on the road.

    Turn to channel 5, KState is up by 15 with 12 minutes left in Austin...

    Mizzou could easily find foul trouble in Hilton with the way they play D.

    3 of the 4 are very winnable.

    Re: Next 4 Games (schedule gets easier)

    being a cyclone fan for 25 years ive came to find that we have a good chance of losing any game


    There are not many crowds or places in the country that have a better impact on the game than at Iowa State. The Cyclone fans are truly a sixth man. The place is so loud and always a fantastic crowd." - Former Kansas and current North Carolina head coach Roy Williams
