Celebrating horizontal football since 2011
This is the first game I've felt good about for a while
Oh god. that's not good, is it? Shit. JUST WIN
Nearly the mother of all jinxes here
That's why you're the judge and I'm the law-talking guy.
I spent half my life's earnings on wine, women, and song. The other half I wasted.
Well I'm warmed and ready.
Still waiting for 2nd FB NC.
Moss going coast to coast?
C'mon Garza. You were open. Gotta at least hit rim there.
Switch to zone, Fran, their man to man is garbage.
annnnd they’re carving it up
no more yankey Chuck's wankey
Keep it up, Cook
Just be a zone team.
Garza just doesn't look the same these past few games. They need to set up a play for him to get his confidence back.
C'mon guys. Too sloppy
jNW is shooting well. Odds are they can't keep it up for an entire game. Just keep attacking the inside and pass out of any double team to the open shooter.
yep. beat me to it.
jNW hitting shots. let’s not over analyze this
Ridiculous shots, in fact
Waiting for the next time Michigan comes to visit
yeah, because the defense is terrible...
Man, we can't finish at the rim
Gotta stop allowing the offensive rebounds
We’ve got something Cook’n!
This is really ugly.
It is, indeed.
Fran get this lineup off the floor
Kreiner is having a rough game
so is Garza. and Bohannon. and Baer. and Dailey
This is getting old.
What sort of backwards fucking pageantry is that?
All of the good from the last two games is gone.
STIP PLAYING MAN TO MAN DEFENSE
This game is there for the taking, just need literally anyone to step up and get going.
I didn't know Jordan Bohannon's nickname was "literally anyone."

Hey Iowa or isu....want to play in Des monies
*both proceed to #*@& the bed
This is a bad loss
This is looking to be the worse loss of the year.
terrible, terrible showing.
It was until it wasn't.
Edit: replying to wrong comment
I wasn’t worried at halftime but I’m beginning to become concerned now.
hey, at least we avoided a “bad” win.
That stolen inbounds for a missed open break layup is pretty indicative of the kind of game this has been for pretty much the whole team.
Damnit, come on Iowa.
NO FUCKING WAY
AH NAH HELL NAH JBO GONE UP AND DONE IT!!
Holy shite, that just happened
I feel sorry for people who turned this game off (though I don't fault them). That was nuts.
Team learning how to win and deal with adversity. This is what they were missing last year. Will serve them well once March rolls around.
I admit to turning away with about 4 mins left. I checked back in at 3 minutes, saw us turn it over, and checked out again. Fortunately, I came back with exactly 3 secs left. So I missed some heroics, but I saw Jordan's next highlight destined for the "Titanic treatment".
Everyone gets an AP!
And boom goes the dynamite. Wooohoooooooooooooooooooooooooo!
The moment I gave up was the moment they came back! I am going to have go full Nihilist in the future to ensure blowouts
I am absolutely stunned.
Lo, bring forth the Bohannon Cannon. "Fire!" Fran shouted. And lo, it was done and they smote jNW's ruin on CHA's battlefield.

I started taking shots of crown royal apple when jbo missed the layup. We won and now I’m shitfaced. Work is gonna suck tomorrow but at least we got the W. I’ve never been so pissed off and so happy in 45 seconds since I lost my virginity when my first girlfriend said no and then ok.
Black and Gold Surrounded By Orange
Well worth it. Good work!
Oh myyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!! How sweet it is.... I love it, I love it, love it! Holy cow!!!!! Who fired that shot??????
That was just too good.
Two big wins for the bball teams today, in very different fashions!
A Hawkeye Daily Double today!
We did not deserve to win this game. But, a win is a win and I'll take it. And to paraphrase Little John: JBo has balls of solid rock. GO HAWKS!!!
I don't understand. What the fuck did I just watch?
You watched absolute beauty
The ugliest win is better than the prettiest loss. Just wish we didn't try to test that theory quite so often.
No complaining allowed! You are never seeing that again! Full enjoyment required!
I've rewatched JBo's shot 25+ times now. Each and every time I'm absolutely certain that there's no way it could possibly go in. And I am STILL convinced that it shouldn't. But, it only has to be good the one time.
Somebody have a link where I can watch it 25 times myself?
Don’t have twitter or Facebook for very good reasons by choice. Thanks Hoya!
DOWN 15 WITH 4:30 TO GO BOHANNON WITH THE BOMB GAME WINNER!!!! pic.twitter.com/Y3Q0SCn4zA

Christian Laettner is yet to repeat that shot against Kentucky...
Christian Laettner hadn't spent the first 35+ minutes of that game sucking it up. He was literally perfect that entire game. And his shot was nowhere near as far away as JBo's was.
Christian Laettner stepped on that dude, though.
In the standings, this win is just as impressive as the one over Michigan.
Yes, I understand that. Hence the whole ugliest win being greater than any loss thing.
Damn right - no such thing as a good loss or a moral loss.
This reminds me of a game back in the early 70's where we were 11 points down with very little time to go and won it. You do not forget these kinds of games. Ever.
(edit) It was against Illinois.
jNW was up 76-65 after a made shot at 2:09 and lost 80-79. That is a gloriously tragic collapse
Couldn’t happen to a better opponent.
Has it sunk in yet?
Still at a loss for words.
You are all my best friends tonight.
