    Simple

    Why does ISU win, IMHO?

    Simple to me. ISU and Iowa played an even game last year in IC up to the fourth Q.

    Game is in JTS. ISU is a better team than last year in all phases, offense, coaching, ST and defense. Iowa has taken a step back compared to last year.

    It will be a dogfight and turnovers are still a huge factor, but if ISU is even in TO, I think we win.

    Re: Simple

    i think it all depends on who has the momentum at the start of both 1st n 2nd half who ever can start both quick win.. to me that will be iowa state


    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."

    I agree with this thinking. It should be a close game, and whoever scores first in the second half will probably win.


    Winning cures all.

    We'll win because we'll have fewer fans wearing jorts.

    Re: Simple

    I was listening to a podcast from the guy that does SmartFootball.com (don't remember his name, but do yourself a favor and visit his blog). He said that he was talking with some college staff who did a study and found that teams that lead by 6 points or more at the end of the first quarter go on to win the game 79% of the time. If we can get a lead early and force the Hawks to get out of their comfort zone offensively, I like our chances.

    ...and if not, I'll settle for a 2005 outcome again!

    I was at that game at the Johnson County Landfill. Played on a soggy field because the drainage system didn't work (must've been designed by Iowa civil engineering grads).
