    If we WIN tonight

    Is it the biggest non conference win in our history? I am sure we have beaten higher ranked teams before, but with everything that this program has been through the last 6-7 years a win tonight would do wonders. The confidence of the players appears to be shaky and beating the Duke Blue Devils would give them major confidence heading into conference play. I really think this team could go one of two ways after this game.

    In my opinion the key to the game is getting Brackins points in the paint. He hasn't posted up down low all year but we will need him to in order to beat Duke.

    Biggest non-conference? I can't imagine it's not in the top 5 for the program

    Re: If we WIN tonight

    Im sure its no shocker to anyone, but every player on our team needs to control tempo, none of the run and chuck. If we run and chuck with any sort of lead, its over.

    This would be a huge win and would definitely give us a big much needed boost.

    Agreed. We definitely need to pick our spots to run. I think it is really important (obviously) that we start to make the "bunnies" that we have been missing so far in the season. Also you know they are going to pressure DG all game. He has to stay tough with the ball, and he can't let them stop him from going to where he wants to go to set up the offense.

    I'm not expecting a win but man do we NEED this one!

    We beat #2 ranked Purdue back in the Orr, Grayer, Thompkins era on a neutral floor. That is likely the biggest one.

    Re: If we WIN tonight

    I will say yes for reasons outside of the game itself. Mac is sort of on the hot seat. If he wins here it proves a lot IMO. It says something about the direction of the team. However, even if he wins, we need to move along and still need to beat Kansas or Texas once maybe twice. I think we have guys that can do it.


    It's all snark from here on out

    IF we win tonite will this be McD's first win at ISU vs. a ranked team? If it is, how sad is that.

    It won't be. I'm very happy with how much better shape our program is in than it was when he took over. That said this would be a huge win for him...

    If we happen to win, people should back off McD a little.

    It's a deal! If we win I will definitely back off the guy! IF we lose though, I expect you to join in and rip the guy for being 0-14 vs. ranked opponents, okay?
