    Looked pretty weak from what I saw on Twitter. Probably 6-7k in seats?

    Iowa is a good team, they have Garza in the middle, and he can score and rebound. They have enough 3 point shooters that force you to cover them on the outside, so you can just not pack it in to stop Garza, and they are also getting enough from the other players. Last night Kriener had what 13 points. Not bad for a secondary player. Plus a little home cooking never hurt, Iowa 27/30 from the FTL, Michigan 4/5. Garza was banging the big guys from Michigan just as much as they were him.

    But we all know that Fran is a first part of the season coach, and when they get to the Big 10 tournament and the NCAA, they will crash like they always do. That is Frans MO, when the pressure is on, Iowa will fold down the stretch.

    Us ISU fans just need to shut the F up this year. Iowa is so much better than us it's not even funny. Just admit it and move on.

    Right now, we just need to be concerned with our own program and how we're going to get this s**t show turned around.... and forget about Iowa.

    I've already checked out of this year's college basketball season. I had no idea Iowa even played last night, and don't even know who ISU has coming up on their schedule.... it just doesn't matter.

    ISU needs to get an infusion of talent and some better coaching ASAP because the future doesn't look bright right now.

    Who gives a s**t how many Iowa fans were at the game last night? Traveling anywhere last night was dangerous. And they won another big game. Meanwhile, ISU still sucks and will for the foreseeable future. Deal in reality folks. Yes, it hurts, but it's true. Time to get it corrected.

    Which is sad when you think about it. College basketball stinks this year.

    Just so jealous of Iowa and how hard and together they play.
    And Michigan misses Beilein and perhaps even more Yaklich. Nowhere near the intensity of what they've been the last few years.

    Iowa fans seem to be pretty sensitive about it

    That was a very entertaining game with multiple twists and turns. Fredrick, Kriener and Mccaffery came up big last night. Another nice resume building win over a top 20 team.

    Looks like Garza shot 13 FT's. Michigan as a team shot a total of 5.

    Wieskamp also shot more FT's than the entire Michigan team.

    So did Frederick.

    Wow. Juwan should be pissed.

    Sounds like it was pretty entertaining if you like watching FT's, that's for sure.

    Might have something to do with Mich jacking up 34 3's. A pathetic number.
