There it is ….. another backhanded compliment from GD sukeye. “ Should be a solid 2 seed” …. My gawd man just go away you are a douche. We’ve been a 2 for a couple weeks … , could be a 1
You took the bait. Should have just congratulated him on the Hoks NIT invite. Then suggest they'll probably get a first round home game with the electric atmosphere at the Carver library and knitting center.

Insecure much? Don’t know how you could take anything from my post as a backhanded compliment. Lol
Because if you paid any attention to this board or the national CBB media since last night you'd know there's serious talk about a possible 1 seed.

Leaving that out is either ignorance or a troll job.

Knowing hokdom, it will always be assumed to be troll

EIU has become a women's basketball school, forget about the men. Let's talk about all the records CC is setting.

For the next few weeks. If they aren’t good next year, WBB won’t matter. They are band wagon fans. They’ve always been band wagon fans. When they’re good in a sport, they’re right there pushing it in everyone’s face. When they’re not good, they were never a fan in the first place.

As an example, how much did you hear about Iowa wrestling this year? A couple years ago, Iowa fans couldn’t wait to talk to anyone about college wrestling. You’d see Hawkeye wrestling stickers all over cars and tons of shirts around town. It’s non-existent now.

I just watched that and...wow....just...wow.

I hope they paid him a lot for that. Even just that ridiculous coat is something I wouldn't wear for less than $1,500.

He won't disclose how much he got. I'm thinking it was free refills on Mt. Dew for life.

This is one of the more accurate posts I’ve ever seen on CF.

Even their football fans have gone the route of being self deprecating in terms of their offense as a hedge against their usual arrogance.

Only interesting thing will be to see how long they can make this CC thing last. May not stop immediately. You’ll hear the “you can’t just replace a generational talent overnight thing” through next year and possibly the year after.

Someone on Hawkeye Insider said he hopes Harding can find 15-20 pounds of muscle. Have they ever looked at any of their players? They all look the same freshman year to senior year

Most of their players are bean poles and have been for quite some time. It's almost like Fran and the staff has not figured out where the weight room is nor understand its importance in modern basketball. Perkins has found the weight room, but that is about it. Fran just loves him some tall lengthy kids that can run the floor and shoot a three.

Congrats fanatics. Would you prefer being a 1 seed in the West or a 2 seed in the Midwest with Purdue? Please be nice to me and @iahawks

Would be cool to be a 1 seed. But, I still don't think the committee could stomach giving Iowa State a one seed over North Carolina. Plus, Iowa State could whip Purdue and might have a crowd advantage in that game. So either way works for me.
