    I know in the past we haven't done well out there. Just like we remind Husker football crazies - that's the past.

    This a new team with a new coach and a new attitude - a completely new identity. All that stuff that happened in the past is long gone.

    I'll be very disappointed if we go out there and drop one to a bad Colorado team. Especially after starting 2-0 and losing in OT to then #6 ranked Kansas.

    -5 equals motivation.

    Clones win by 8.

    - keep.

    I see more confidence in these guys everytime they take the court. The loss to KU hurt, that is for sure. But at the same time it had to have motivated these guys.

    GMac will have a solid game plan as always and the boys will execute it well.

    We will win the turnover and rebounding battles and end up winning by 11.

    I think we're a tough matchup for Colorado. We'll make it an ugly half court game, and that's not how they want to play. Hopefully they're not shooting lights out...

    Nick, what's up buddy? It's Zim....

    I hate to say this, and have been winning on taking the cyclones recently, but I think -5 is going to be tough. I would take the money line if there is one, I do not think we will lose, but I am not sure we are going to win by a ton....

    Lines I do like, non cyclone related... Patriots & Saints

    Line is: Iowa State (-5) @ Colorado, meaing we're favored by five points. That's a tough bet, on the road. Colorado has been running up the score in their home games this year, meaning the ending score might be closer than the game actually was.

    The line i like is: Nebraska @ Oklahoma (-5)
    Oklahoma has Longar suspended for the game, and they don't have anyone else to cover Maric (not that Longar could anyway...). Plus, OU has been pretty shaky this year, and NU is a solid shooting team. I think Nebraska on the money line is a good bet here.

    I found a -3.5 line and put a little down. I'm not sure if it was a good idea or not anymore...

    Re: Line tonight

    McD hqs not visited Colorado before. I believe he will learnm from tonight's mistakes. You do not shoot threes. When the refs call it tight, you have to finsd a way to get the ball inside. You tell Mike he has to pass to play. You tell Brock Jacobson you must play better defense. You just do things different than what we did tonight. We deserved to lose because we threw away opportunities. Corey Johnson and Wesley Johnson were about the only light bulbs turned on tonight. I predicty similar as we visit other foreighn arenas for McD. He too has to learn what to do and not to do at Texas and Oklahoma and Kansas. That said, I expect better effort in Hilton if we want to go to the NIT or NCAA. I wish Rahshon or Wesley or Dodie would be able to take more shots than Mike one time.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.
