    Garza is efficiently bad. A true sign of a limited player and roster. They don’t do the wrong thing, they just can’t do the things needed to win.

    So much losing with Iowa’s efficiency numbers, which has been consistent for Fran, is a red flag.

    I think it will help when our 4th and 5th best shooters aren't hitting sub-20%. We'll lose our top shooter, but I think our 3rd, 4th and 5th best shooters will be better and we'll have more viable threats on the floor at all times.

    Wow, looking at the box score Iowa was pretty bad yesterday.

    I saw two possessions of Iowa and JBo recently. He only got beat once and only had one TO in that time. It makes me think he has progressed, but potentially it’s too small of sample.

    Doesn’t that take away from the performance of the players and staff?

    “best fans in the country” need some of the credit apparently.

    Iowa fans wouldn’t understand the concept of home court advantage.

    And they still suck at home? Doesn’t that take away from the performance of the Iowa players and staff?

    It’s confirmed, Iowa fans under 60 don’t understand home court advantage. What a sad state that program is in.


    YeahBuddy is a gift from the mods. I’d buy it’s really CW.

    I mentioned this the last time you posted this and will mention again... this is a list of home venues sorted by win% over the history of that venue. There is no metric here.

    Do you honestly think that history can’t weight this list to inaccurately reflect current home court advantage?

    Should we compare home court records over the last decade?

    Think I read somewhere today that ISU has the #1 homecourt on Kenpom this year.

    Really impressive some of the wins that team has had in a down/transition year.

    This is how I know we actually have talent and how I know Iowa has very little.

    He is one dimensional, the vast majority of his drives are defacto turnovers, and his defense is bad. Height probably has most to do with this and can't be overcome at this point. That being said he is a great shooter when on and is money at the free throw line. I think on balance we will be better at his position next year, but I wouldn't expect the same sort of offensive production.

    Fun fact: only six Big Ten teams have a higher RPI than the worst RPI Big 12 team (OSU at 89). Per CBS Sports
