    Whats everyone think? Should be able to handle a young Iowa team, but this being at Carver scares me just a bit.

    Iowa is nothing special. That being said, this game worries me. There is nothing I hate more than losing to Iowa.


    Iowa State- 73
    Iowa-64

    I think we handle them pretty solidly. If we can keep shooting the 3 then we'll be good. If not, then we'll be a sitting duck.

    Iowa returns 6 guys who all played a lot last year. Their experience and them being at home makes it tough. Right now I'd go Iowa -2.5

    I'm just very afraid of us coming out slow and sloppy. We need to come out and pop them in the mouth quick. If we don't it could be a long night.

    Sagarin predicts Iowa wins by 2.
    Kenpom predicts Iowa wins by 1.

    I say we win by 15. 88-73

    How many years straight have we won? Like 4? I guess Iowa is due for a win.

    90-80 Cyclones. Our weaknesses on defense are extremely evident but in the end Lucious absolutely schools Gesell the whole way.

    Gesell actually scares me more than Marble. I think Babb and Tyrus will shut Marble out the whole game.

    Some things to consider....Fran has not yet beat Fred, and the Big 10 is tough. They need as many quality non cons as they can get. And here is a chance to get all of the above, at home, against an instate foe. They will be pumped. With that said...they are better than recent years...but not yet good enough to dictate. So we play like we did against BYU...we are 7-2 Saturday morning. We commit 19 turnovers like tonight....this one will be a butt pinch of a game.

    There was a kid in my high school who reminds me of you. He wore cowboy boots and a denim jacket to school every day, and had a fu-man-chu that he was very proud of. He also used a fake redneck sort of talk, same as you.

    Ironically, he became a security guard overnight at a mall. He was fired after being caught doing inappropriate things to himself in the bathroom. Which is actually an issue he had in middle school as well after watching "the movie" in health class. Not the female version either. It was actually pretty gross.

    I suppose you can always aspire to be the next Paul Blart.

    My October guess was Iowa in 2OT.

    I'll stick with that, and hope for a better result — Iowa State in 2OT works OK. :spinny:

    I say we win this one before the last 5 minutes, but Iowa hits a few shots down the stretch to make it interesting. ISU 74-68 Iowa
