    Assume what we know about Ejim...he may play in limited minutes.

    Either way, it's in Hilton. The place is a death trap for ranked teams.

    There isn't an option for 110%. That is what I vote for.

    KenPom, which factors in home court advantage but not injuries, has ISU at 51%. Sounds about right to me, even with injury issues on both sides.

    Pretty good IMO. Hilton is a tough place to win in for the visiting team.

    Fred's teams are 49-7 @ Hilton. The team is pretty young and inexperienced, but it'll take a solid effort from Michigan to take this one in Hilton. BE LOUD CROWD!!! :) DICKIE V. IN DA HOUSE!!!

    I almost went with 25-or-less, but it seems more like 26-50. (i.e., can't see worse than 3-games-to-1 in best-of-5 series).

    Remove McGarry/Ejim status for a moment.

    * Beilein teams occasionally under-achieve on the road (historically promising situation for Hilton Magic vs. legit teams).
    * ISU's largely unproven roster has been untested (but left little doubt in early games).
    * U-M schedule has been weak so far (but left little doubt in early games).
    * U-M was national runner-up — had key roster losses.
    * ISU was Round-of-32 — had key roster losses.
    * Fred team in November figures to be somewhat less-effective than Fred-in-February.
    * Prominent TV-coverage stage builds excitement, but Longtime ISU Fandom gives me smidgen of uncertainty.

    Sounds about 50-50 to me.

    I would have voted for an even 50%, but since that wasn't an option and I've always been glass at least half full, I went with 51-75%.

    I think this team is gelling more quickly than our other November squads. I don't think past years have any significance on this season in that regard.

    Hilton will be crazy. Threes will be falling. We win one by about 7, and just might see that # by our name, like #24 or #25.

    most everyone will be in two categories between 25 and 75%. Maybe you should have broke it down more in those ranges.

    Had to go <25%. I just don't think we're ready yet, and without Ejim? I don't like the odds. But I'll still be supporting and hoping for the best!

    I'll never give us <50% chance to win as long as its in hilton and hoiball is still in effect.

    Nobody yet has had a big blowout win of us in hilton in his entire tenure, and when you can keep it close that means you always have a chance.

    Will McGary play for Michigan? That will determine a lot.

    I think Monte Morris steals the show and goes off against his home state's school.

    And Rashad runs to Fred at half court and screams his commitment.

    Johnny Orr in the house. Vitale's first game at Hilton. RV visiting (among others).

    Also, one does not simply waltz into Hilton...

    Re: Poll: What would you say the chances of beating Michigan on Sunday are at this ti

    Why does everyone here assume that because of us taking time to gel in the past two years that again it'll be the case this season? That's one of the things that annoys me about so many CF posters. Our only player that sat out last season was SDW, and he doesn't play many minutes to begin with. Kane and Hogue played competitive college level ball last year and it's obvious that they're both tuned up and ready. Just because we're "young and inexperienced" doesn't mean that it's going to take until January for this team to find its niche. I really think we have one of Fred's best teams yet and will put up a great game against the Wolverines and should come out victorious, with or without Ejim. Our offense is great and we would be averaging around 100 points a game (I don't care who you play, that's impressive) if we didn't pull our starters out with 5 minutes to go because we're winning by 35 points. This Cyclone team can run and gun.

    Naz proved in the first game that he can be a sharpshooter. When he couldn't make his shots in the second game, EVERY OTHER STARTER and Morris picked up the slack for him. We're balanced and have a special team. Expect a nailbiter and a Cyclone victory on Sunday.

    The options were slightly odd but I think there's a 50/50 chance we win or we lose, but I'm a pragmatist.
