with you Ricky. i had planned to take next Th-Fri off and plant myself in front of the TV for 4 days.
i really want to believe this but i think that is just totally wishful thinking. think of the logistics involved. that alone is insane. takes years to plan this stuff.
Oden looked like he'd been there since '86.
or without Tyler Cook?
vs MN or IN... yikes
Purdue’s old man rec league player > Iowa’s old man rec league player
he’s not going anywhere.
Purdue’s had our number for the last two years. Painter is imo the best coach in the B1G.
totally agree on your help defense critique. even more maddening - when the shot clock was winding down and their big had the ball 18 ft out. Connor goes to double leaving that 45 yr old wide open for a buried 3.
Sitting behind a guy who was constantly messaging "Hawkeye State."
huh? i’m confused. weird flex during that game but he’s not wrong.
to say this was Iowa getting beat because of February blues or whatever, isn't true.
are people still saying this? it’s not even February.
CJF a true Frosh
Fredrick redshirted last season.
the officiating was questionable.
agreed. i’ve watched a lot of B1G basketball this yr and that was the first game where home cooking wasn’t remotely a thing. two calls that stood out resulting in 6 pts - Kriener’s moving screen wiping away Evelyn’s three, and the clear out of bounds along Purdue’s sidelines giving them the ball and a three as the shot clock expired.
the blueprint was already there and successful (see Nebraska). more a matter of Iowa’s guards making open threes.
needed Sparty, Illini, and Wisc to lose over the wknd. 0/3. and Wisc got reeeeaal lucky in winning that game last night.
agreed but the extra day off / one less game is big.
winning at Illinois is going to be very, very difficult. like, if we played them in Champagne 4 times we’d win once sorta thing.
check out Weezy’s Insta page for your answer.
keep my privates outta this.
these numbers are truly hard to comprehend.
heard AJ didn’t fare as well... possibly dropping him to 2nd round?
if he doesn’t go top 10 (i believe he will), the Jets have pretty much said they’d take him at #11
are we surprised tho? same old same old. it won’t change until Izzo retires, may as well accept that.
I dunno, Weezy badly misses CJ - even more so than Garza. we got away w/ it vs OSU but it bit us tonite. i don’t think the juice - going big - is worth the squeeze.
this is where i’m at. no expectations going in, lead for 75% of the game and get our hopes up, turtle at the end.
you had me until resting our top players. that’s what a top 4 finish is for. otherwise - you can’t be serious. one loss and suddenly concede everything to be content w/ 9th place after fighting all season to be in 2nd? even if the logic checks out, this will never ever happen.
I'd feel better about our chances if Brands & Co. could join the hoops team for tonight's wrestling match in East Lansing.
the Reverse Jinx - love it!
