What happened to this rivalry? It used to be almost as heated as the football game. The excitment/buildup/etc. just isn't what it used to be. Why? Is it because both teams haven't been really good in the same year? I bounced on over to HN and I couldn't believe the apathy towards Iowa basketball. I mean they just don't care about it. I used to be a hawk fan before I went to Iowa State and it was NEVER like that with Dr. Tom. Iowa basketball was on pace with Iowa football, if not on a higher level. Is it all Steve Alford? Could you ever imagine being apathetic towards ISU basketball? Because I couldn't. This has turned into a more broad discussion about the state of each program but it's interesting to see the differences between the two programs. And who will win the game on Friday?
