    What does that have to do with a scrimmage that doesn't even go on record?

    And if you thought two seasons ago was horrible, I hope you didn't have to live through the Johnny Orr years, or the Tim Floyd years, or the Larry Eustachy years, or the Wayne Morgan years, or the Greg McDermott years, or Fred's first year.

    I predict another year like we had two seasons ago.

    This just in from Jeff Foxworthy (or was it Jeff Prohm?): If you're imitating Chicken Little based on a scrimmage that neither you nor any other fans saw, you might have fully exposed yourself as a "haters gonna hate" troll - although, we already knew that anyway. Feel free to take your bundles of joy to your actual team's site.

    This type of prediction is lazy.

    The big 12 will be way down then this year and probably only be a 1 bid league.






    I hope you can tell this is sarcasm

    SIAP, Hines mentioned that Haliburton played a little at the 4 in the Minnesota scrimmage.

    I don't know if you realize this but Iowa State has not won the Natty 10 years in a row. We have actually lost every year.

    Like many here, I am quite alarmed at the result of the scrimmage with the Fighting Gophers. This puts a lot a pressure on the scrimmage with Bucky. I hope CSP can finalize his tuning and rotation before that game or we are going to lose all the momentum we had in the off season. Starting out 0-0 is going to be a tough hole to dig out of.

    While we are analyzing performances - what happened to Rulzzz? or did I just miss the basketball game day post? Can we get this straightened out for before the Wisconsin scrimmage?

    And what out the prediction thread?

    I know we didn't have anyone perform well enough to get Big XII weekly honors, who got them?

    Finally - I will start the Wisconsin prediction thread.

    I have to go with Bucky - 44, ISU 32. Both teams shoot under 20% which surprises ISU but aligns with Wisconsin usual offensive production. Haliburton is tagged with 7 TOs because of his step back jumper. CSP tries SoLo at 1. Ultimately, ISU is unable to overcome Madison being 58 miles farther from Ames than Minneapolis.

    Best quote "I know we won but I don't think either coach was coaching that way. I think we were trying to look at a bunch of different things. We got a lot of new guys. They got a lot of new guys..."

    People who care about this realize Nixon barely played right? 4 bench guys played more minutes that he did.

    He's been fighting a lot of injuries this fall.

    I would imagine they limited his minutes as a precaution.

    Believe it or not, I actually enjoyed that year. I had low expectations going in and, well, they met them, but I have some good memories of that season nonetheless. We forget, but they won their preseason tournament and beat a few ranked/tournament teams (the big wins against Boise State, Texas Tech, WVU, and Oklahoma come to mind immediately) along the way. Sure, the overall result was underwhelming, but there were moments there.

    The game that stung the most for me was Texas in Kansas City, actually. Not that they were really playing for much, but I wanted to see them win one more for DJax and his family.

    Plus...

    PG -- NWB v. Haliburton... Haliburton is a large improvement
    SGs -- D. Jackson/Wigginton v. Bolton/Nixon... probably something of a push
    Bigs -- Young/Lard v. Young/Jacobson... definite improvement, if only because Solomon is healthy, two years older, and Jacobson is much more reliable
    Bench -- Beverly/a bunch of junk v. T. Jackson, Griffin, and Conditt... neither bench had much proven, but this year has much more talent, so improvement there

    The team might not equal last year's win total, but I doubt it sinks like 2018 did.

    I like Jacobson's take on the scrimmage. "Took some good shots, took some bad ones, missed both."

    Not be any good. Kenpom’s got them at 6-14 in the B1G. Seems like predictions are 10th-12th in the B1G.

    No one cares about losing, but this isn’t the first notion of this team having poor shooting and rebounding. The outcome, short of a blowout either way, is irrelevant.

    Nevertheless, How good is Nixon? He’s likely one of our starters, but I’d be surprised if he’s a difference maker, particularly in what ailed them (poor shooting and rebounding).

    I think you are making this up cuz inbound plays.

    And that Texas Tech team that beat ISU - woof. That team was absolute garbage.

    Fred's inbound plays and timeout usage were perfect.

    That is why he never lost a game.
