    Everytime Cook got a putback dunk, there were 3-4 ISU players ball watching and not boxing out.

    What were your expectations? Remember, we were the worst team in the big 12 last year, and have been missing major pieces all year including 2 this game.

    Top 25ish puts you in that neighborhood...

    We are at that threshold at this very moment.

    Top 25 program and Duke are not in the same neighborhood.

    you are fortunate...I have a son-in-law who is an avid Hawkeye fan (yep, he graduated from UNI), and he’s raising his son to also like the Hoks. Yeah..

    This game in (1) early December (2) on the road to (3) an NCAA Tournament squad will (4) have no impact on our seed in March.

    Guys this team that we have has the possibility to be really really good. I think they are the 4th best team in the Big 12 without Wiggs and Cameron just coming back. I think they have the talent to go 12-6 in the Big 12.

    Iowa will make the tournament this year. They will have non con wins against us, Oregon and UCONN. They are probably a #7-#9 seed at the end of the year.

    My hopes were to at least compete for the Big XII this season.

    Yes, I understand this kind of loss happens. It isn't the end of the season. It doesn't mean the end of the world.

    It certainly set the peg a notch or two down on the expectation level.

    At least he shoots over 40 % from 3. I think THT is around 20%

    I'd prefer a better than 4th finish in conference.

    Why wouldn’t you be happy with that? That would be a good regular season and a good jumping off point for this next cycle.

    So what are you expectations. I just watch Kansas get taken to OT by an exponentially worse team than Iowa on their home floor last weekend.
