    How good is Northwestern

    Leading NC State by 12 with 3mins left in the first half. Game is on ESPNU and the Wolfpack is rated 17th on CBSportlsine rpi rankings.

    Good enough to beat us.


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

    Re: How good is Northwestern

    Well, if NC State is 17th in someone's RIP standings on December 1st then I'm sold.

    I still think NW will finish 7th-9th in the Big 10. I don't think they're bad but certainly not good.

    Re: How good is Northwestern

    Well we didn't have a fieldgoal in about 12 minutes against them, missed all those bunnies and lost by 2. hopefully that means we are decent too. We need them to be good so that loss doesn't bite us in the rear.

    Hey guys...it's time to give NW some credit. You all sound like scorned Squawk fans that can't come to terms with NW being good at anything.

    They are good, plain and simple. There is no way the finish that far back in the big 10.

    Probably better than expected. Not enough talent for the top half of the Little Eleven. They'll give someone else fits this year.

    Ouch.

    I think they played well. Their offense gave us fits. Every Iowa fan at work has completely understood (without me offering anything up) what happened. They've been to this dance before.

    Still, this would be another impressive win for their team, which we all thought would be a pushover. They apparently are not.

    I hope they can make the tournament. They'll be one of the teams I'm cheering for the most, after ISU.

    Re: How good is Northwestern

    they are a gimic team, but fundamentally sound. tough to perpare for in short turn around. they will beat teams they are not supposed to beat (e.g. MSU last year, ISU this year).

    i would think they get 7-8 wins in the big 10. 2 are guarenteed (i will assume they play Iowa twice)

    Re: How good is Northwestern

    They are a good team, but I still think we are better. How many times are we going to score 1 basket in 12 minutes? Northwestern could finish 5th or 6th in the Big 10.

    Re: How good is Northwestern

    I am telling you that Northwestern is hard to prepare for, especially in one day like we had. Does anyone (else) remember when Floyd brought Princeton in for a four team tournament and we played them on the first night, even though they weren't the worst team in the field, because Floyd said there was no way to prepare for that in one day, and he would rather know he was playing them and have a week to prepare And I believe Carmody was at Princeton at the time.

    Re: How good is Northwestern

    I have to admit it makes me feel a little better knowing they are giving an ACC team a run on the road.

    In other news, I hope Roy Williams shoulder hurts. kinda.

    Re: How good is Northwestern

    For our sake, I hope Northwestern is really good. I just don't think they are.

    We were prepared well enough for them to be up 48-40, and then we just fell apart.

    Re: How good is Northwestern

    NW up at the half 34-24. Shooting 58% from the field. Shurna who scored 25pts against us has 10pts. Wolfpack are not shooting well. 37% from the field and only 1 for 7 beyond the arc.

    Their team reminds me of watching 5 IT Systems Administrators during mens league.
    Not pretty, but I guess they are good.
