    quit over reacting. Lindell is in his way. Solomon will be coming back to guard some down low guys and rebound.

    We had a bad night and they had a couple guys go off on their home court.

    In two months teams are not going to know how to guard Wigginton, THT, Shayok, Jacobson and the rest of our guys. Plus two months of playing together.

    Big 12 better get their crap together because we will only get better and start smashing teams. Take a breath people.

    Other than this being our in-state rivals it really doesn't mean that much in basketball. A non-con loss on the road to a ranked at the time team. Not really going to change anything. Other than it may light a fire under some of our guys.

    Sorry, we may be fine but this was a 'bad' loss. We can make excuses all we want but were just schooled by a team that we should have beat.

    It can be a teaching moment, for sure. I guarantee you if the committee needs to dig that deep it's not going to be a positive result for our team...

    I think this team will be fine. I am not seeing a team that can seriously challenge for #2-3 in the B12, but we may look completely different in January when Wigginton and Solomon are back.

    I'm still concerned about 3 point shooting with a "small ball" club, but Wigginton may change that, and we will probably improve our 2-bigs lineup over the month of December.

    With all that said, I hope Prohm can take back control of this series going forward. I really hope he can land Foster, but I fear this season is exactly what Foster is waiting to see out of Iowa before committing to them.

    Especially if Cook keeps blowing up.

    I’m willing to bet the committee will see us whipping ass at the end of the year and know we were without two of our best players

    In theory, Iowa is a ranked team. That’s not a ******* bad loss.

    However, we have only played 2 good teams and got killed by one of them.

    I'm not going to overreact to this loss at all. First of all, two of our main contributors just got back last game and are nowhere near in game shape yet. Second, our best player isn't back yet, and our enforcer down low isn't back yet either. Iowa was jacked up and playing out of their minds for their biggest game of the year. Their roster is chock full of Iowa kids, and we have one, Jacobson. It isn't a "rivalry" in most of our players' eyes. Kansas is a rivalry. OU is a rivalry. Iowa..... ummm...... no.

    Short handed, against an instate rival whose back is against the wall (and a team that is ranked, even if not deservingly so)? It’s a textbook write off game to anyone who puts any thought into it.

    With all that, playing terrible and not catching any breaks, it was still someha game.

    Repeating but this type of game may have been really good for ISU.

    Quasi-hostile environment, other teams' players living their dream, and ISU playing their worst game of the season and still getting it to 8 with 6 minutes left.

    Also despite what that POS Randy Pete says, Lard came alive a bit. He just needs someone out there as a compliment.

    This is why I picked Iowa. We were going to miss Lindell at some point; Solomon too. They needed this game more than us. Once those two come back, we'll be fine.

    So in theory, this was the number 18 team on their home court. Really fail to see how that is going to be a bad loss.

    Iowa will win some they shouldn't and lose some they shouldn't, but in the end this game on the road was at worst a neutral.

    I hate losing to a POS team with a POS coach as much as the next guy, but in the end, this is pretty inconsequential to long term aspirations.

    I’ve poo poo’d not having Young but he would have been a huge help on the boards in this game.

    Ultimately we just need to get back to the tourney this year and all of that is still certainly possible.

    Not a bad loss. It just sucks to lose to an apathetic fan base. After two games of being ice cold from the arc of course they can’t miss against us. We have a good team. The future is bright.

    1st true road game, against a ranked team that could not afford a 3rd straight loss and played like it.

    It happens

    Yes but no...

    To explain, they won't be ranked by the end of the season. Come selection/seeding time this game can make a difference.

    They don't look at rankings at the time of loss, they look at the rankings at the time of seedings....

    Still a big nothing, for all other reasons listed.

    It's just a basketball game in early December. If it weren't for bragging rights, it would be fairly meaningless. Probably should be more focused on improving team defense and finally knocking KU off their perch in the Big 12.
