    Historically, a fan, I would always take a win vs Iowa for bragging rights and to re-enforce ISU is the the basketball program in the state. That said, this year wasn't a normal past Non-conf schedule and I was way more excited for the #7 Michigan game. There were so many unknowns of how the players perform on a national stage against the Nat'l runner up, ESPN2/Dicky V. and it was raised to another level when Vaughn decided to take his official visit for that game. That win helped the program more than any win vs Iowa in the past/or on Friday could possibly achieve, National ranking, Dicky V raving about Hilton, and impressing RV.

    A loss to michigan was more important than beating Iowa this year, thus I don't think it is justification of fans.
    Not that it matters, I expect that we win tomorrow anyway.

    Being bored before the lunch rush at work doesn't mean I'm as excited. If there were dozens of uneducated Michigan fans here the week of that game I would have doubled up my posts that week

    Yeah and that doesn't have anything to do with the twenty hawk posters and trolls posting, right?

    Not really. Most of CyTwins posts are strictly to bait/mock Hawk posters on this site.

    Now if I could only get you to admit it's Iowa's Super Bowl every time they play ISU in any sport...

    It's just not a #SuperBowl in BB. It just doesn't make much of a difference in the long haul. For instance ISU being one of Iowas better wins last year wasn't enough to push them into the NCAA (the rest of the year mattered more). Conversely ISU losing to Iowa didn't keep them out of the NCAA (the rest of the year mattered more).

    It makes so much more of a difference being 1 of 12 football games, plus the #SuperBowl is football.....derrrrr.

    I guess some just don't know who Ejim and Houge are, or they have never seen them play a single game in their lives.

    I can't wait until 36 hours from now when I can go back to devoting 100% of my hate back towards Kansas and then can forget about the Iowa Hawkeye basketball team for another year, much like most of their mouthbreathing fanbase already does.

    Actually, by this morning's CBS ratings, Iowa's SOS is 58 and ISU is 95. On TeamRankings, Iowa's SOS is 72 and ISU's is 85. KenPom has Iowa at 16 and ISU at 22. Sagarin has Iowa at 5 and ISU at 6 (strange, this one - BOTH in the top 10?!)
