Not a chance.
Oh Lord, come on OP. It might be closer than before, but we're still a much better team.
A game in IC would be interesting! ISU is still better but Iowa is definitely improving. They start 2 freshmen, 2 sophs and a junior and their first guy off the bench was a freshman. Bawinkle is the only senior and he played about 2 minutes.
Iowa is headed in the right direction.
What a stupid thread...you do realize that Iowa would probably not win a game in the Big 12 this year? I mean come on, we lost to 2 top 5 teams and a game on the road in the Big 12 (which last time i checked wasn't easy) and all of a sudden we are so bad that we'd probably lose to Iowa a team we beat by 10 and probably even more if it weren't for consecutive 3-pointers made during garbage time.
Seriously if you are that down about this team than quit watching rather than stating ludicrous statements...
I think I made my point with this thread. I will never stop supporting ISU and the players.
It's not a stupid thread and has nothing to do with our B12 losses. Look back at the end of our non conference schedule. We have not made improvements in the basica fundamentals of basketball. Our teamwork is not there.
That is all.
At the end of our conference play we were also playing teams like bradley and Houston...not Idaho State
The real question should be is who finishes with more conference wins ISU or Iowa? Unfortunately I think it will be close.
I don't know why everyone is jumping all over the OP....I get what he is saying. I'm not sure if they would beat us, but they are getting much, much better. They came very close to beating MSU on the road last week, and anyone who thinks that we keep that game within 15 pts has the cardinal and gold blinders on. Iowa is fundamentally sound, they play defense and they play smart, pretty much everything that we don't do. They are overmatched talent-wise in most games, but Lickliter has them playing very hard, and it just shows that if you give consistant effort and play fundamentally sound basketball, you don't need overwhelming talent to be competetive. Just because they are the Hawkeyes no one on this board wants to even consider that they might just beat us now. Like I said, I don't know if they would or wouldn't, but it wouldn't surprise me.
No, Iowa would not beat us... neither would Drake
Iowa would be last in the big 10, last in the big 12 and would really struggle to climb up in the MVC too. This thread is ridiculous...
Iowa State is better than Iowa in basketball, we already won. Get over it. Focus on the big 12, we've played some really tough teams and things won't get a ton easier but their are still possible wins out there. No we prolly won't make the tourney, but Iowa won't even get to .500 this year.
To the point of Iowa almost beating MSU. We were within 5 of Texas with 2 mins to go.
Are guards are able to match up with EIU and there is no way they handle gilstrap, Craig and dendy right now.
