    Seems like the MSU writer and fans want to write off their lack of effort and inflated rating as something else. Simply put, they overlooked Iowa, and they're not good enough to do that with anyone (this isn't the first close game they've had with a very crappy team).

    Yet ISU is a whopping one spot higher in Kenpom.

    Prior to last night he was shooting 33% from 3 in conference play. Add to that he only shoots 42% from the field and 20% from the free throw line(59% on the season) in conference play.

    Omg Kenpom is SOOOOOOO 3 years ago. Not surprised Hok fan still clings to it like square-toed shoes.

    Jordan Bohannon was 5/8 for three in that game.

    He scored 17 points against a Top 5 team.

    Said it before -- but I would take that kid as a bunch gunner.

    Some guy was on the Ken Miller show today and said Moss plays like a 1st round draft pick at times. I nearly drove into a snowbank.

    He scores 17 but gives up probably 30 points in uncontested lay ups or open jumpers. He is one of the worst defenders in the Big 10.

    Tyrus McGee was nothing to write home about on defense, either.

    Just saying -- there is a role for him on a good team.

    Cook is a legitimate stud. He would easily start for us.

    After that, hard pass on all of them.

    His passing the ball in after made baskets and his free-throw defense are Pro worthy.

    Still strange to me there is this much of a circle jerk over Iowa's bad year when ISU is almost as bad.

    I think the main difference is that ISU had to replace 4 All-Conference caliber starters and Iowa returned 4 starters.

    Iowa was supposed to be good according to Hawkeye fans and local media while this was a rebuilding year for us and we're still better
