    They are a bunch of transfer misfits and JuCo transfers. It’s the clown way. At the end of the day the clowns acted like what they are...’lil bro.

    May have been Baer's best play of the night, which is saying something. I didn't like the look in Connors eyes. He was getting ready to drop the gloves.

    Jacobson was waiting for the confrontation. Why else would he be standing there? And where were his teammates to drag him away? Jacobson should start the next game with a technical already assessed to him

    And why was Horton wandering over? Two on one wasn't enough, had to make it three on one?

    I can't wait for the Hilton rematch.

    I have been saying that for the two previous years, they may not be large for his size, who knows, a little clumsy who knows, Cook had a lot of bad handles tonight and in most games, needs to improve there

    He was too emotional with the calls tonight. But it shows me, he’s an Iowan and not a transplanted east coaster; he wanted to win this reeeaaally reaaaally badly.

    What impressed me was Iowa had someone to finish the game. Connor McCaffery drove and drew fouls at the end to keep Iowa up. I haven't seen that in a long time. Wieskamp seem to be following his lead. Its nice to have guys that can make their free throws at the end of the game.

    So now we have to root for ISU the rest of the year? I just barfed all over my keyboard.

    Cook may come back for his senior year for the sole purpose of dumping a can of whoop ass all over Hilton.

    I remember Skiles going Scotty Skiles on ISU. He ran back up court, pointed to a spot on the floor, told Jeff Hornecek he would make his next shot from that spot, and he did exactly that.

    This definitely puts the Michigan State thugging in the rearview mirror. Iowa, at least at home, is showing that they won't be intimidated by physical play. I'm afraid every Big game is gonna be just like this one. So let's get every non-conference win left and hit the Big running. We can't have a let down against UNI, it will be just as scrappy but hopefully not as dirty. Last, WELCOME back the Pemsl from his freshman year. Nice looking jumper he's developed.

    It really sucks that Iowa doesn't play for another 9 days. Although it woulda sucked a lot worse coming off another loss

    I'm sure they're up in arms about the officiating.

    Meanwhile, they shot 29 free throws to our 23 and were awarded a basket that may have hit one of the arms of the shot clock.

    The worst call of the game was the foul they called on cmac when he was just standing under the basket completely still with his arms up. He wasn’t in the circle . It wasn’t blocking or a charge, should have been a no call

    I literally didn't comment on this. I don't know where you are getting that I thought this was okay. It was stupid, Prohm going on the court was stupid, and there were just a ton of stupid emotional reactions during the game by the ISU team.

    Doesn't change anything I said in the post.

    Edit: If you want the proof, here are some links:
