    You gotta walk before you run. I’ll take an easier leaning pre-conference schedule so we can get our game together. With transfers, the loss of our lottery pick point guard and incoming freshmen, it’s nice to play a team with delicious frosting and sprinkles on it so we can liberally make mistakes (and they’re coming) and not have to brutally pay for them on the other end.

    Well it is probably because they used to have overall SOS and non-con SOS as two different metrics they were considering. That meant that the non-con was considered twice - once as part of overall SOS and again as non-con SOS alone. The big boys generally had the meat of their schedules and toughest games in their conference season so they only got counted once, while the little guys had their toughest games in the non-con and they got counted twice. It makes sense that their resumes aren't looking as good now that the non-con in only counted once in the evaluation.

    How soon is Big 12/SEC announced? Figure it'll be soon, since WBB matchups were released. Wonder who we'll get? I'm guessing Vandy or Ole Miss.

    Or someone else. :D

    We owned TAMU when they were in the Big 12. All in all, yes there are cupcakes, maybe one or two more than usual, but better them than UNI/Drake. I think it's a good schedule for the coming years squad.

    How are any of those teams not associated with tournaments, challenges or Iowa 'better' than UNI or Drake other than in the ability to beat them without effort?

    Thanks, I'll hang up and listen.

    I'd like a varied opponent, too.Matchups tend to align with previous season's results/next season expectation, so I don't know exactly where that would put ISU -- assuming Mississippi State would get a notch above. We'll see.

    Those are some extremely awful D1 programs. Think Prohm might have tried to schedule us to the NIT like I've seen a few others do. That sucks because the NIT is for losers but it's still better than last year so I guess

    Why do people want us to schedule losses instead of wins? Or do you think we’re suddenly a top 25 team again?

    If we get Georgia I'd feel confident we have the better in game coach at least

    I'll never hear the end of it if we lose to SDSU. Actually it will just be a weekend of razing but damn I don't want to hear that. If they lose that one I'll by groaning from the cheap seats.

    Well odds are we aren’t going to be good, so I’ll take a bad non-con. Prohm has really killed this program IMO

    One good take away is there is no Dec 31st game this year... Those are always awkward for attendance and the team coming back from break.

    Based on the lack of venue listed on the schedule, it looks like they may be planning for a potential no-fan December anyway.

    no one has mentioned $$$.

    the schools that are 150-250 are in high demand, and they know it.

    given covid, maybe ISU figured to save some $$ and only pay the crumbs required for the 300+ level schools.

    20 b12 games, iowa, high-maj h-h, big east, SEC, holiday tourney (2-3)....you're at 26-27 games against legit competition. So those other six teams don't really factor into an ncaa decision...might as well play the crappiest teams we can and get the wins.

    Thanks for that, good to know the matchups.

    Observations plus a question
    * Novelty that ISU faces both Oregon and Oregon State in the same season.
    * Has ISU ever played Oregon in MBB? Archive from cyclones.com says no. Correct me if I'm wrong.
