    Missouri Valley Style

    Once again, tonight's game proves that the style of ball played by the mid-majors like UNI just can't compete with the elites of the BCS conferences....oh wait, never mind.

    today proved that if you dont turn the ball over and if you make your shots, you can compete with anyone in the country...... oh yeah, and mr. jacobson can coach too.

    I think this is more like it.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: Missouri Valley Style

    Athleticism is overrated if you can't play team ball and have sound fundamentals.

    That's basically ISU's downfall for quite a while now. We've had athletes... but not all of them could handle the ball, make smart passes, and smart plays overall... in addition to being able to take good shots (and make them).

    Dead on!

    We have tons of athleticism on our team. But we really dont have anybody that can even dribble the ball up the court or create a good shot for their teammates consistently. Most of our players have a significant hole in their game. Those UNI guys played solid all the way around.

    Re: Missouri Valley Style

    I am guessing that Jacobson will be gone at UNI and Doug may consider looking elsewhere. I also think it is highly likely that Doug grows another 1" or 2" in the next year or so, he is very baby faced. Doug at 6'9 or 6'10 is a Big12 player, especially with his long arms, outside shooting ability and his nose for the ball.

    Re: Missouri Valley Style

    Alright i had an argument with someone already about this. What if UNI i was in the big 12 all season? Could they win with there style of play, playing the best athletes out there night in and night out? I doubt it. Another example Mac tried winning in the big 12 the way he won at Northern Iowa..... Did that work out? No. My point is say Kansas had three or four days to prepare for this game, I think they win. The NCAA Tourney is all about getting up for that one game and UNI did it and took it to kansas. Keno Davis hasnt won **** at providence, Gmac.. well hasnt done **** here. Ben jacobson, time will tell, but I think he will learn that his style of ball in the mac just like the others, wont cut it in the big conferences once he gets that job.

    What the hell is the MVC "style of play." Somebody, anybody, answer that question.

    Keno coached for 1 year at Drake with his Dads players. His style will work anywhere his Dad won at Iowa. I don't think UNI would have had as good a record in the Big 12 but I do think they still would have gotten to the NCAA tournament.
