    Prove to me I made multiple accounts. I got banned for 2-3 days because people don’t agree with what I say. They call me a troll and can’t bring on an intelligent conversation.

    This is why people call you a troll:

    Well to bring intelligent conversation, you should try and add something intelligent. Given some of your posts that were just quoted, you’ve failed in that regard.

    Is this the post you're referring to? If so, you really weren't laughed at. Other than you not knowing Iowa was playing 20 conference games. I'm not sure how much you believed in it.

    Reading through your posts and the next 20 or so posts doesn't feel like you were nearly laughed off the board. Some serious revisionist history here. Maybe there is another post that you were thinking about.

    There’s so much hok anger and aggression in here. Can you imagine if CF didn’t exist? We’d have hok fans driving to Ankeny to yell at people wearing Cyclone gear as they walk in to Hy Vee and Fareway. Instead of guys holding signs in the median that say “Homeless vet please help” we’d have hok fans in their Wal Mart Wear holding signs that say “Honk if you love JBo, don’t honk if you love Nick Baer”

    Hey, did you every see this post from Althawk?
    https://cyclonefanatic.com/forum/threads/seemingly-never-ending-iowa-mbb-thread-still-going.213718/page-446#post-5612295
    You're right in that Jok is not used to being defended like he will be in the NBA. That's because if he was defended in the NBA the way he is in college, the defender would be fouled out in about 30 seconds. The freedom of movement players are allowed in the NBA, plus the improved spacing, will make things a lot easier for Jok in the NBA than he ever had it at Iowa.

    I’m glad you can predict better than that bozo.

    They also got drilled by Purdue, Michigan, MSU 2x, Ohio State, Wisconsin...as well as losing to Nebraska and Rutgers. IA was competitively a lot closer to the bottom half of the league than they were the top. Oh, I know- 98-84 and they beat Michigan at home- hang your hats on those two wins if you want. Reality is, no big wins anywhere but on Hawkins Drive and a lot of shellackings vs. good teams. And, an escape against dog.... Bryant- what does that one even out with?

    .....and the cyclones get blown out by WVU, TCU at Hilton, get blown out by the Hawks. Lose to a bad Arizona team in Maui...Face plant in the NCAA’s to 8-12 8th place B1G team.

    What’s your point?

    My point is any team in the country could say they lost a few close games that they should have won- ISU was NOT very good on some nights and I have no problem admitting that nor am I trying to say we could have been 27-8. The fact that IA got blasted more times than not when they played a good team points to them being the "best of the rest" in the Big 10. I'm not the buster on a rivals board trying to justify squeezing wins out against Northwestern and Rutgers by saying we could have stole a few more. Just about everybody's record ends up being about where it should be. Iowa had a good year- not great- good. Ask yourself this- are you where you were in 1999 when you ran out a guy who made 9 out of 13 NCAA's, two Sweet 16's, and an Elite 8, all while representing your program with class? 20 years and 3 coaches later and, if Hawk fans are honest, the grass hasn't been greener.

    @benjimill since you hit "funny" on those statements by Althawk, I'm sure you'll agree with this:

    TCU just finished up their season a game away from the playing for the National Championship.

    FIVE absolute miracles. Between fluke shots and **** teams. They were the same 16 win team they were the year before.

    This could very easily break the dumb rating button.
