    Agree, these posters seem to have a good handle on their team and also the strengths/weaknesses of ISU. Even a guy that points out ISU is undersized, but still gets after it on the boards.

    But...there always has to be "that guy"

    By the teams he saw on Tuesday night, I'm assuming he means Duke, Kansas, Kentucky and Mich State.

    I for one enjoyed Sven's blatant homerism.

    LOL at the guy expecting a 20 point road win in Hilton. He is going to be severely disappointed on Sunday.

    He knew his stuff, I like that he posted the clip of crowd noise at the KU game. I think the noise will definitely approach KU levels for this one.

    While I appreciate the clip... watching that made my stomach turn, considering what happened in the last 45 seconds of regulation after that shot. When Niang hit that i was convinced we were going to win... silly me.

    Actually, though its a bit overly negative in tone, what Loneclone is saying is essentially correct. We do have a lot of new guys who will take some time to mesh, and that has been a characteristic of Fred's teams thus far. Fred seems to work the season with an aim towards the NCAA tournament, allowing his players to grow into their roles and his squads have seemed to peak their performance in February and March. That doesn't mean we're bad in November, but I think LC is just saying this team is a far cry from what it will be by late in the season. And while most teams show gradual improvement over time, Fred's teams exaggerate this tendency...in part due to the melding of new players and in part due to his deliberate coaching methodology. This is a positive trend IMHO, and I don't think its unreasonable for LC to point that out.

    Not having Ejim is also an important factor in the game for us that is worthy of mention.

    Yes, he is., I believe he was banned from his home site for disagreeing with the wrong person in the wrong way.

    For stating the facts? LC knows his stuff and backs it up.

    Lone Clone is absolutely correct in his analysis, the MBB at ISU is talented, but has played very little as a team. Also, Fred's teams have come out of the gate pretty slowly in the past. Remember the disaster in Iowa City last year?

    I expect the Clones to put up a good fight, but will be surprised if they can pull off a win like this early in the season. It really all comes down to how well ISU shoots from the outside. If Naz goes off again, than I like their chances...

    That board seems pretty intelligent and realistic.

    Lone Clone may be correct, but what good is it to post something like that on an opponent's message board? That post makes me queasy when I read it.

    This is exactly the same team makeup of Fred's last 3 teams. Hopefully next year there will not be as many new faces on the team. That being said, Fred has done an amazing job of molding very good teams out of the transfers and JC guys, so we just expect it to happen again. Bottom line is Fred is a great coach, and I expect this team to be good by the end of the year. Right now they are still not there, and without ME they are missing the experienced guy knows how to tough it out when things go wrong.
