    Beating ISU

    Would equal out one of these early lossess - very big game for NCAA hopes.

    I agree, however if the Hawks keeps shooting 12% from beyond the arc they're not going to beat anyone decent. They got by SD by overpowering the paint. iSu doesn't have a great inside game so if the Hawks can at least shoot 30% from 3 they'll have a chance to win. Woodbury needs to try and stay out of foul trouble. He did a good job last night and would of came back in if it was a close game. They're a different team when he's on the court.

    I agree. Hate to say it, but knocking off the clownz is a big résumé booster.

    Not sure how much of a "booster" it is; it would prove that Iowa can't beat only hapless teams, I guess.

    Western Kentucky is 7-2. Maybe that will end up being considered a good win at the end of the season.

    I know, I know...it's a stretch. But this whole thread is a stretch so might as well include it.

    Re: Beating ISU

    I just hope Iowa can win. Seriously Iowa needs something to silence the ISU posters/local media, etc... All that ever seems on TV/Radio in Iowa is how ISU is on the way up and Iowa is still a step behind. They need to win big like ISU did last year. If they do win, I agree it will be a good win come end of the regular season and if this Iowa team has a good enough record to be considered on the bubble for the NCAA tourney.

    I feel we need to sweep UNI and Iowa State, beat the rest of the cupcakes and then go 10-8 in the Big Ten to dance.

    Exactly, we need a momentum changer. All of the focus is on the clownz and we really do need to keep pace with their rise in popularity and talent lately.

    And it will be a big booster since ISU has a good chance at dancing again this year.

    it may be a good win but I'd hardly call it a resume booster.

    Re: Beating ISU

    I'm confuzed on why we need to "cancel out" one of our two losses.

    Losing on a neutral court to Wichita State and on the road to Virginia Tech, who are both undefeated, is not going to be the reason Iowa's bubble bursts. If it bursts at all.

    It is too early to tell just how good or bad those two losses are; the thing is nobody would be talking about them as good or bad wins right now if Iowa had just done the job and won. Everyone would just be saying we'll see how good or bad the wins were come postseason.

    VT could tank in league and WSU could finish as low as fifth.

    My point is neither of those losses will be a Campbell, we know that. It's pretty safe to say that @VT and a loss to Witchita in Cancun won't be under Iowa's bad loss category on Selection Sunday.

    Re: Beating ISU

    Its not that Iowa's losses were bad, but more missed opportunities to build a resume.

    Iowa has a fantastic chance to win this. I cant remember the last time ISU faced an Iowa team that had 6 guys returning that played significant minutes. This Iowa team has experience, and more talent than they have had in a while.

    Im not expecting ISU to win this Friday.

    Re: Beating ISU

    This is a sad thread. Beating ISU is equal to beating Simpson. They suck. We should not be elavating them higher than they belong. I cannot believe this. Let's beat them and move on.
