    Interesting ISU/UNI question

    Here's an interesting question. Let's say Iowa State stuns UConn this week in women's basketball. What's the bigger story this season, UNI reaching the Sweet 16 in men's basketball by beating Kansas or the Lady Cyclones knocking off potentially the best team in the history of women's basketball?

    UCONN would be the bigger upset...but would not get the pub UNI simply due to the popularity of the sport.

    ISU over UCONN by far, but doesnt mean the media will give two ****s about it.

    UNI is the bigger story, not even close.

    This. It would be one of the biggest upsets in sports in decades. Just not a huge story.

    If the game is within 20 i'll be surprised.

    Re: Interesting ISU/UNI question

    Bigger story and most pub = UNI

    Biggest upset ISU vs UCONN


    “It’s beyond pride. It’s a restored trust. There’s a confidence again, a passion that teeters on swagger. More than anything, (Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads) has restored the Iowa State “it” factor, the steadfast belief that it is great to be a Cyclone...the man’s enthusiasm is genuine to the core...”
    – columnist Sean Keeler, Des Moines Register

    Re: Interesting ISU/UNI question

    UNI would be the bigger story, especially considering this tourney is all about the betting world, but knocking off UCONN would be the bigger upset without question.

    Re: Interesting ISU/UNI question

    A four-seed over a one-seed would seem to be the lesser story except for the fact that UCONN hasn't lost a game in two years and may be one of the best WBB teams ever.


    I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.

    I'd say that ISU beating Uconn would throw off almost all, if not every bet placed on the game and tournament. Ucoon is riding a huge streak and have been demolishing teams, and havent lost in 73 games...

    Is women's ISU upsetting UCONN >>>> men's UNI upsetting KU??

    I think so. UCONN is probably a history in the making and should win the whole tournament IMO. They are a beast. ISU looked weak and slow against the GB girls. If we can beat UCONN somehow on Saturday, I think this would be the biggest upset any ISU (men's or women's) team ever came up with. It might rank even higher than UNI men beating KU down the stretch. no disrespect for UNI whatsoever. I just want to give UCONN all the credit for winning 75 (?!?) games in a row and beating them would be monumental.


    WE ARE IOWA STATE

    Um, how about we wait until it actually happens before we go declaring the greatness of a win?

    Re: Is women's ISU upsetting UCONN >>>> men's UNI upsetting KU??

    It would be waaaay bigger than UNI's win. kansas had many flaws, while Uconn is nearly perferct and probably a top 3 team of all time.

    I would say yes, unbeaten UConn closest game all year was a 12 point win over #2 Stanford so no one has even come close to them yet this season.


    Go Cubs Go!

    Would be way bigger than UNI, God love em.

    I'm convinced that if I act like we're going to win, it's going to happen. Similar to how I believe I can force it to be spring by driving around town with my windows down at the slightest sign of warm weather.
