    Either way, they both made the tournament as an at large, both had similar records and Iowa won the head to head. ISU gets a bump for winning the Big 12 Tourney and Iowa gets a bump for winning an NCAA game.

    There wasn't some big monumental upset last year. Both teams were pretty equal last year.

    That's fine, but last year wasn't an upset by any stretch.

    "It's a huge Rivalry; everyone takes it personal. Iowa, they take it personal and we do too.
    Tyrese talks about this game all the time..and we're playing for something bigger than just a basketball game". - George Conditt IV Dec 10.

    Way to go George; get pumped up like it's a " Superbowl" and beat the Crap outta Iowa!

    I don't hate Evans or Niang. Just pointing out the hypocrisy of everyone bashing on Pemsl for being a dirty player. Your favorite ISU player of all time got T'd up twice for hitting guys in the nuts. That's on the same level as eye gouging.

    Oh oh, this goes against CyTwins' narrative. I thought he was more plugged into the pulse of Cyclone athletics than this.

    Thanks for confirming you've never played basketball competitively.

    I don't have a prediction on the score tomorrow night, but I predict:

    An Iowa cheerleader will complain about the poor treatment the squad received from ISU fans

    An Iowa player will dive into the crowd going after a loose ball. Two ISU fans will help him up and the Iowa player will later claim he got shived.

    Randy Peterson trips on his shoe laces after the game and breaks his arm, but ISU fans will be blamed for storming the floor after the win and Peterson will never admit his own clumsiness.

    I played competitive basketball for over 20 years. I can honestly say I never purposely hit another guy in the nuts. Maybe where you're from that is normal. There aren't a lot of technicals handed out in college basketball for nut punches. I can't think of one in the past couple of years.

    An old man will run onto the floor to attack Fran when Iowa wins on a last second shot.

    Someone will steal Garza's Beats headphones from his bag. Barta sends a letter to all NCAA schools in the nation to warn of thieves in Ames. They'll later find out it was one of the Iowa managers.

    There is a big difference between being good and "dirty" and not being able to play basketball like Pemsl and what he does

    Nut taps when the ref has his head turned are just as common as illegal screens.

    But I don't need to tell you that.

    When you're elite you get a lot more leeway yes. When you're bad you're going to get criticized more. That's life

    Follow up question...if being good excuses being a dirty player, does that only apply to a career or can it be one game? Can Pemsl have one good game and play dirty for one game? Or does he have to have what is considered a good career in order for it to be acceptable to be a dirty player?
