    I predict I'll stay out of the game day thread all night, and off CF for a week if we lose.

    That said, while nervous. I think good guys prevail.

    On paper they should struggle to defend us but it's their Super Bowl

    It is hard to predict a score because you just don'e know how all the new guys are going to react to a real road game. Jacobson is the only Iowan, so the fact that it is at Iowa might not effect the team a lot. There is only 1 starter from last year playing, so the team might go it there with the "it's just another gym" attitude. I like the way ISU runs the floor and moves defensively. Prohm probably will not do it, but I would start the game by pressing Iowa to see how well they handle the pressure. Not a lot of great ball handlers on that team, and several turnovers to easy baskets would take the crowd out of the game in a hurry. The one thing that I see a lot is ISU leaving guys open on the wing when they double team the post. So far they have not been burned too badly for this, but if someone gets hot it could be an issue. THT is capable of giving teams fits, but needs to make better choices at times. ISU's length will bother Iowa in the passing lanes.

    I like ISU 78-71

    Ahh. Well that's not what you said. You said 'they're really going to struggle to defend us'. Thanks for the clarification.

    They have, but in most cases, it more of shade to the post and maybe dig at the ball when it's exposed (we have a few steals from doing that).

    Thanks for playing, everyone, but I think we have a winner.

    I predict that the hawks and their fans are giant turds.

    Also, any ISU fan who "predicts" a loss to any team, especially those turds, needs to run a check.

    Easy Clone W, score doesn't matter.

    I remember when Jim Zabel asked Bobby Knight what he thought of the "newly built" Carver Hawkeye arena and his answer was something like "Looks like any other arena we play in." It pissed off Zabel and the Hawkeye faithful.

    I agree with the score but despite the individual talent of 4/5 starters from ISU two seasons ago, I like this team better all over.

    I think Iowa hits the shots they haven't been and vice versa for ISU though.
    Don't really care so long as ISU wins the rest of the way to conference play. A win would be great too, just not counting on it.

    The 2016-2017 debacle is n the past. We had a group of seniors that thought they were going to walk into Carver and just win the game and I don't see that entitled attitude with this years squad.

    IMO we just need to weather the early intensity by Fran's spiders because you know they will be flying around. Go out on a 10-0 or 12-2 type run and Fran will take care of the rest.

    In all seriousness though, I really think it boils down to how we attack their zone. If we just stand back and jack three's there is a great chance that we will lose. If we attack the middle of the zone and the baseline we could absolutely run Iowa out of their own gym. Give me Iowa State 82 and Iowa 70.

    If I had to put some percentages to it, I think it would be something like this

    Iowa wins by more than 20: 1%
    Iowa wins by 16-20: 3%
    Iowa wins by 11-15: 5%
    Iowa wins by 5-10: 9%
    Iowa wins by 0-4: 16%
    ISU wins by 0-4: 21%
    ISU wins by 5-10: 12%
    ISU wins by 11-15: 8%
    ISU wins by 16-20: 5%
    ISU wins by more than 20: 3%

    Right. They aren't really doubling, they're just digging aggressively which has been a great change from previous seasons.

    To be fair this team probably has 3 NBA guys on it too at least. Also, I like this years front court a lot better. 2 years ago we had to roll into Iowa City with Merril Holden, Darrell Bowie, and a very young Solomon Young.

    That was one of Solo's first games right? IIRC he missed the first month or so with a wrist injury?
