    Thank you to Iowa...

    I would just like to thank Iowa for participating in this years run at the tournament of 65 and present them with this trophy of honorable mention.

    I think a lot of Iowa fans and players were looking past Penn State as a win and thinking about Illinois.

    I think it would be just perfect poetic justice if Tom Davis and Drake could somehow win the MVC Tourney and get in to the NCAA Tourney with Iowa on the outside looking in.

    I don't mean to sound smug though.

    Re: Thank you to Iowa...

    If they lose to Illinois this weekend and we beat Tech...their conference record will only be 1 game better than us. If you would have told me that 1 week ago, I probably would have laughed in your face.

    Tom Davis gets to the tournament almost every year...doesn't lose in the first round but can't get Iowa past the sweet 16 so he's let go. They bring in a guy who has 1 NCAA victory in 7(?) years...

    I bet Iowa fans just wish they could get back to the Tom Davis level.

    I'm hoping they do just enough in the Big 10 tournament to get in. Gotta keep Steve around folks. He's shown he can underachieve with the best of 'em!

    The Alford family should be paying Bowlsby a cut of his salary. I'm thinking that Barta must be ****** that Bob gave him an extension on the way out the door.

    Re: Thank you to Iowa...

    I work with a bunch of Hawk fans (live in eastern Iowa) but surprisingly very few support the basketball team. The best I can explain there is a tremendous amount of apathy towards the basketball program. Very few really even care anymore. Last year people got mildly interested again until the crushing defeat to that mighty NCAA tourney foe. Some people love Alford, some hate him but most don't give two craps. That's the state of Iowa Basketball right now.

    Ahhh, make it eight years now. Thanks for being the state's whipping boy Steve. I grew up in eastern Iowa and a Hawk fan (don't worry, I saw the light when I went to ISU.) I didn't understand then and I really don't understand now why they canned Davis. I was so happy to see him beat Iowa earlier this season.

    Did anyone else hear the loud fan at the Penn State game shouting FireSteveAlford.com? I chuckled but really wish there was a site RetainSteveAlford.com. Let's get that done. We need him around. God forbid they ever get a good coach there.

    Yep, same thing here. Even my brother who goes to Iowa doesn't really care anymore. There is a lot of apathy for Iowa Basketball.

    Maybe they are the All Great and Mighty fan base they think they are...

    We are going to outdraw them in attendance this year...with a 1,000+ smaller arena.

    And get matched up with Drake in the first round so that Dr. Tom can whip them again...

    See, now that would be fantastic. I loved Dr. Tom and him beating Iowa this season was great. To get to see him do it twice with the 2nd being in the big dance - that would just be all too fitting.

    Pipe dream though as both teams need to win their conference tournaments to even get in.

    I'm not certain on this but I thought his extension money was not garunteed money if they canned him and was more of a thing to allow him to be able to recruit since he didn't have lame duck status.

    Personally I'm not sure how he's been able to stay coach this long with the PP mess and all the underachieving his teams have done. But it doesn't hurt my feelings either that Iowa will just have to settle for mediocrity while Alford is the coach.

    IDK about keeping Alford around, what's his record against us? I could be wrong but I thought he had a winning one?

    Re: Thank you to Iowa...

    How about us getting a rematch with EIU in the NIT? Would it not be great to see Haluska's career end witha lose to ISU.

    Alford may or may not have a winning record against ISU but he is such a devisive figure in hawkeye nation that I wouldn't mind keeping him around.

    McCarney had a pretty good record against Iowa, but I didn't see any Iowa fans wanting us to get rid of him.

    Do you think that is a product of Iowa/Alford's success or our poor teams the last few years?
