“It is Iowa’s 11th sellout this season”. Right. First the arena, then your fans, right, boys? This was another demonstration of why this group has no business going to the NCAA tournament. It was the eighth or ninth single-digit loss of the year, suggesting a lack of courage, leadership or character. Take your pick.
Richard, when they don’t get the job done they hear about it. In what world is that not the case? This was my school when all these guys were nothing but a future human being, and. I (and everyone else who wants to) can call them to account for poor play if we decide it [...]
It is a step up. Three still-eligible running backs with productivity who have neither transferred, nor have they been thrown off the team. I will take that, any day (AIRBHG has me a little on edge still). What do you think of a Weisman-Canzeri mix in the style of an Alstott-Dunn combo as played in [...]
I have said it before. We have no one player who can take the game into his hands and close it out in the final two minutes of the close games. Matt Gatens was the last guy we had who could do that. Without that player, 1-7 in the close ones sounds about right, and [...]
I don’t like the idea, because I have seen Iowa’s general success rate under the lights, and it is not good (MSU in 2009 was an exception, but flash to that Arizona debacle the next year, and you see what I mean). Also, giving ten thousand college students a chance to get steadily drunker and [...]
If we don’t find a way to win these games, we are headed for an early out in the tournament… If we get there at all. I would be surprised if we were still in the top 25 after this week. We are playing our way right into bubble status
Brian, do you really think Syracuse, Duke and Florida don’t have such fans? Every program has people who express their pain that way, especially when they put too much emphasis on winning. Join the rest of us in Reality Land. Every team gets “followers” like that.
All I know is that this better be the year. It is the most favorable schedule I have ever seen as a Hawkeye student and fan. All the tough games appear to be at Kinnick (Pitt is a possible exception, and a stretch at that: They are not very good) and our road games are [...]
If he cannot maintain speed with the weight he will have to gain, then I could see him as a free safety against whom NO ONE wants to come across the middle. That said, the more versatile athletes we get, the better I like it. Welcome, Parker Hesse.
The notion that the Big Ten title is “gone” must refer only to the regular season title. There is a tournament, and if Iowa peaks at the right time, there is no reason to believe that it cannot be won. The only real question is whether or not they will sustain the level of effort [...]
I don’t know what “great things” you are seeing from Woodbury. I watch him back into the lane and score on a jump hook or inside move about three times a game. He routinely scores and rebounds in single digits. The rest of the time he looks timid and outclassed by men four inches shorter [...]
