Sorry, but I want to see us play good games. Not 20 games against Alabama A&M so I support more tougher games.

If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls
I spoke to Fred earlier about this and he said that he pulled some strings and the Timberwolves will come down for an exhibition against the clones. Verified by rebecacy. and the Dude from WV. And Chip Brown.
Somebody already said it...

Those guys are awesome and will need a big win. A ton of money problems on Moron Mountain and the Iowa Hawkeyes are just not bringing in the money for them. But we win easy because Hoiberg will suit up and save the cyclones from a lifetime of servitude. 117 to 110 Cyclones
And next year is how the non-conference schedule should be every year. Plenty of opportunities for resume wins so we're not in this position anymore.
I completely agree. Going the "Big 12 North" route and padding your win column with cupcakes only gets you so far. I feel as if CFH wants us to be a marquee program, and if that's to happen, we'll need a non-con that regularly has some big names on it.
Then, once we're to the next level, we can be like Syracuse and revert to playing cupcakes in the non-con.
