    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    I am a lifelong Badger fan, but the Great Dayne is way overrated. His pro career shows that. He had incredible offensive lines at UW.

    Re: Top 5 Running Back All Time

    Barry Sanders is the best running back, college or pro, of all time.

    Earl Campbell has to be up there as well. Guy was an absolute beast.

    Yeah, I think great college backs don't always transition into great pros. But the offensive line can only open up holes for your first few yards, then that is when the good ones shine. I think Barry Sanders had some soild o-linemen in college, but it was what he could do to a defender five yards+ downfield that made him a great one.

    Marcus Allen - USC. I watched him live against IU. Big, strong, quick.
    Billy Sims - OK. First run against ISU 1976, dropped the pitch, picked it up and ran for 80.
    Barry Sanders - OSU. Toooooo quick
    Gale Sayers - KU.

    If you have a problem - if no one else can help - and if you can find
    them - maybe you can hire: The A-Team.
