Looking at that, not the greatest non-conf schedule, but could be worse. We at least will play 5 BCS teams if my math is correct.

I really hope that unknown opponent is against someone from the power 5 conferences. Right now there isn't a home game that I "have to get to" like the Michigan game last year.

Pretty underwhelming. Was hoping for a bigger matchup based on our success last year. The CBE has had much better fields in the past, but that's not something we can control. Georgia State is a good under the radar game to watch, they have probably the best mid-major backcourt out there.

That schedule simply stinks. Very disappointing.

Has potential...if Auburn, SC, Iowa turn out to be good, that'll help. A-state, Maryland, Bama have potential also.


Let's let the chips fall and see what happens. Win, and who cares.

There's plenty of room in Hilton


We're certainly happy to play in Hilton, provided you'd like to come to Cedar Falls.

I have no ill will towards Iowa State in this. They have every right to play who they want to play and the perfect situation came up PR wise and were able to get out of the series with Fran and Barta taking the bullet. Its never coming back, that's fine. I just wish the Big 4 would end.

I think it should happen as well but not at a 1:1 rate. I'm not trying to treat UNI as "little" brother but I think a 2 for 1 would make sense.

This was a nice tradition that never should have changed.
At least we were able to replace it with a lackluster event at Wells Fargo and uninspiring noncon opponents. That makes the change worthwhile.

Not a fan of that schedule. Wish we had a big name on it like Michigan again.

Is there anything related to Cyclone athletics you don't ***** about?

I wish we'd to UNI and Drake, but unfortunately, the higher powers think otherwise.
