    Ok Cyclone nation... Let's concentrate our thoughts on BB now.
    This is the final game on CyclonesTV, and final non-conference tune-up game.
    Time to cheer on our #2 money maker! It’s been almost a year since we lost a home men’s basketball game. It should be a while before the 'clones drop another.

    We enter today's noon game against 4-9 Yale with 14 Hilton Coliseum wins in a row, and a chance to match the fourth-longest Hilton Coliseum streak in program history. GO CYCLONES!!!

    It will be interesting to see how the team plays considering this will be the first game they have played in nearly 2 weeks. Yale played games this past Friday and Sunday. Hope it is not too sloppy on ISU's part.

    Heading into conference play I would like to see very few turnovers and good 3 point shooting. A win would also be nice.

    I want to see the extra pass being made all game. And no unforced turnovers.

    Gotta make sure we get at least 70 pts since we are the only team left that has always scored at least 70

    Why was my thread deleted? Is this communist Russia?

    If you delete my pre-game meltdown thread, then I expect all post game meltdown threads to be equally deleted.

    I think it is the ketchup on hotdog avatar on a board frequented by mustard people like me. :smile:

    Or, maybe, just maybe, after a evening of football venting they didn't want to start the New Years off with a post baiting folks to argue? It's a new year and I am ready from something Cyclone positive and I am generally skeptical of crazy expectations but hopefully MBB or WBB will turn it on this winter!

    BTW, HAPPY CYCLONE NEW YEAR!

    So a fire messingham thread is ok, and all the post game meltdown threads that we will have after we BEAT Yale are ok, but a pre-game one getting all the concerns out of the way is taboo. Got it.

    No - this is a site that has owners. The owners of the site can do as they wish. You agreed to the terms of service when you signed up (you probably didn't read them - nor did I)

    Right, I just wish to know the reason why my original thread was deleted. It seems kind of wrong to delete what I thought was a legitimate thread without explanation. It's like waking up and your wife is gone without even a note to say goodbye.

    Getting back to the actual game. Thanks for reminding us of how long it has been since we played. Might not be unreasonable to expect things to start a little rusty for us. I would be happy to see a low turnover smooth second half.

    We will struggle early but pull away to win by 17, or start hot and let them pull withing 9 to end the game.

    Cyclone.tv is less than ten bucks. You can cancel your subscription right after the game if you want.
