We still don't have any actual sports to talk about and we're not going to have actual sports to talk about for, uh, quite a while. But we can still talk about old sports! And vote in brackets! So that's what we're going to do.
In the last 20 years, Iowa basketball has listed 62 starters. With a hat tip to
@HPbasketball, who devised this concept for the NBA, we're going to ask who would win one-on-one. Since there aren't any sports anymore, we have plenty of time on our hands.
The Go Iowa Awesome Hawkeye Basketball One-on-One Extravaganza is officially on:
We're limiting it to 2000s-era players because, well, it just seemed like that would be more fun. Also, we had no clue how to analyze, like, Murray Weir vs Peter Jok. Also also: there are many many months to go 'til any sort of real Hawkeye sports return, so we might end up doing versions of this for the 90s and/or 80s as well.
The rules for our one-on-one match-ups are as follows:
- shoot for first possession
- alternating possessions
- play to 15, must win by 2
- 3s are worth 3 points
We'll be running polls daily starting tomorrow (Tuesday, March 31).
Who's making deep runs? Who's getting upset? Fill out a bracket and let us know.
