Yeah, how can you not root for Haluska, he came to Iowa State after his brother was here and transfered to Iowa. It takes some serious guts to do that.
With that said, I am still frustrated with 4-26 from the field and 0-17 from behind the arc. I thought that this guy could shoot. Our biggest problem and the reason that we succeeded IMO was that we were able to easily get the ball upcourt because there was no pressure, Haluska and Peterson until recently really struggle against it.
Thanks for the input Jon. I wasn't suggesting that you use all those questions in one day. Side note: I came up with those questions in about 5 minutes, they only scratch the surface of the amount of topics that could be covered from this weekend, they were just examples, but who knows how long they'd last. Anyway, I just think that a little more time should have been devoted to the Iowa/ISU basketball game the Monday after the big game. This game's importance within the borders of this state fall second only to the football game, and I feel they should be covered maybe a little more than they were today. And I know, I know, if I want it covered, call in right?:smile:
I don't disagree that wrestling needed to be covered today and more so than usual, I believe shelf life is the term you used. But give us basketball people more than 12 minutes the Monday after the game.
I know it's hard when people not in your profession tell you how to do your job (I know it would get to me), but that's the best part of message boards right? Seriously though, I think you do a good job, and I enjoy listening to level-headed discussion from the Iowa side of things. I'll be sure to tune in for more basketball talk later on this week right?:smile:
I try to plan my week out on a Monday, with a rough draft...and as most people know that listen to my show, I am much bigger on college sports that pertain to the state of Iowa than I am on pro sports. I enjoy pro sports, and I used to be an NFL and NBA junkie. But the demands on my time during college football season would make committing to watching numerous NFL games something that would bring harm to my family life, and I am just not going to do that.
So I have to try and plan things out....all the while looking for even a hint of controversy :)
As for Saturday's 'big game'...man, I just did not sense any sort of 'big game' buzz about this thing leading up to it, from either side. Maybe I just missed the mark.
Actually, it seemed to me that wrestling may not have come in second last week on this board, either. There were quite a few of us jacked up for hockey on Friday and WBB and volleyball got their share of props as well.
Wrestling deserves more attention, especially with the resurgence of the two titans of the sport in this state, but dominating the water cooler talk? No.
