    Should be an easy win. Perfect tune-up before Cincy on Friday

    I will be watching. Can't take this team lightly, just because they got beat by Cincinnati.

    Nerd alert: This opponent was my major national rival during an old March Madness 2005 dynasty. Back in the fictional day, they recruited a dominant 7'4" center from Germany. We traded Final Four wins and national titles back and forth.

    For purely nerd reasons, I'm excited to see them on our schedule, and to see our guys avenge their pixelized counterparts. For competitive reasons, I look forward to winning the tipoff. Everything after that is a given.

    Actually, as a fan, you can definitely take them lightly.

    I'd be confident that Iowa State could start Aaron Law, McBeth, Ellerman, Okoro and Fowler and still win by 10

    Probably Agriculture and Technology. Too lazy to confirm.

    North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University is an academic community focused on students—providing them with interdisciplinary learning opportunities, teaching them with faculty renowned for excellence, connecting them to cutting edge discoveries in research, and encouraging them to serve their communities.
    From our roots as an 1890 land-grant university, we have expanded and adapted to become a school fit for the 21[SUP]st[/SUP] century and beyond.

    N.C. A&T still has award-winning faculty, intensive research programs and community-focused initiatives — but now our campus is more diverse, our curriculum includes nanoengineering and our idea of public service encompasses not only Greensboro, but the world.

    Quick Aggie scouting report:

    They beat a DII school Greensboro for their only win. They lost at home to Utah Valley by 9 and on the road to Wright State by 12 before getting utterly demolished by Cincy.

    They are shooting 19% from 3pt range on the season and just 33% from the field. Their one strength would seem to be offensive rebounding, as they are averaging 12 per game, including 18 against Cincinnati, although they are getting out rebounded on the season.

    Their best player is #30 Lamont Middleton, a 6'3" JR averagine 13 pts and 4 rbs, their only player in double digits. He also leads the team with 9 assist, along with 12 turnovers, so he may play the point. They have no one on their team with a positive assist-TO ratio.

    Their leading rebounder and tallest player is #31 Austin Witter at 6'8" and listed at 195# (!!) He averages just under 8 boards and 6 points per game.

    All in all, they are at the Alabama A&M level, not the Southern/Campbell level of talent.

    Having a hard time getting excited enough for this to drive up to Ames. I hate pre season boring blowout games.

    Come for walking tacos and stay for the game? Actually, I kinda want to try the chicken sandwiches they are offering this year. They might be good.

    I like them, but the lines are ridiculous. (And it's usually cold) The only way to get them is by getting there really early or leaving part of the game.
