    I have never predicted Iowa to win in Hilton. The Super Bowl factor plays a big part into the game for you guys but not enough to overcome a legit home court advantage

    My fear is that although you are correct about talent and coaching, you have not taken officiating into account. We have to be better by 20 to win by 5. You know I'm right.

    How do you figure? If Iowa was remotely as bad as what CyTwins spends all day trolling and projecting them to be he wouldn't routinely pick Iowa to win. It's hedging the bet.

    Lol it's Iowa, not Kansas. The officiating won't be an issue.

    So Jack Trice isn't a legit home field advantage?

    Much easier to win on the road in college football than college basketball

    That took about 30 seconds. I wouldn't recommend you put your livelihood on the line for something that I pretty much randomly pulled out of my ass.

    Lol, my point exactly.

    Though maybe there's a 17% chance of a tie?

    Did he pick Iowa to win last year in Ames or are we using the word routinely wrong?

    It's ok that you don't understand the put down.

    Surprisingly, Iowa (#10) has a better home-court advantage than Kansas (#30) per KenPom. With how often Carver Hawkeye Arena resembles the atmosphere of a funeral color me impressed.

    Have you seen Iowa's FT shooting numbers at home this year?

    Ahh yes, the big NBA Finals match-up for the Hawkeyes. They really need this one too.

    I predict PAIN for the Hawkeyes and their 4,000 fans.

    They've shot a lot of free throws regardless of location. Their lowest amount of FT attempts (19) was actually at home against Wisconsin. They shot 30 on the road against MSU. They shot over 30 against Oregon and UConn at a neutral site.

    I like our squad this year. We defend and rebound and have long defenders who get their hands in the passing lanes. We are blowing out everyone and not relying on the 3-ball to do it.

    Defense and rebounding travel. Clones win baring a 3 point barrage.

    For the love of all that is holy dont let little 5'7" Jordan Bohannon shoot three pointers. Literally the only thing he can do. Guard him obnoxiously close force him into the lane do whatever it takes. Take away the three point shot he is relegated to a middle schooler out there on both ends of the court.
