It's not reasonable for the committee to consider games that don't count. While Iowa wasn't trying to lose, I doubt they were going all out to win, either. The committee is made up of ADs and conference commissioners and they actually explain their process and reasoning after they announce the field. I don't see any of them making an argument based on something they aren't supposed to consider.

have detected no mourning rituals, no sack cloth and ashes to be seen.  suspect the press will suppress this news, the people will forget about the game and the chinese communist method of 'openness' will filter the news for the poor iowans i see....

When my two year old gets really angry, she gets in a power stance, balls up her fists, holds her arms rigid and slightly above her sides, puts a twisted scowl on her face and starts to shake. I can't help but to laugh at the awkwardness of her whole routine.  Instead of tantrums, I think I'll call them "Frans" from now on.

For D-2, yes, they're very good. Same conference (NSIC) that UMD plays in. But this is D-2, so it's not that high of a bar to clear. UMD's best player last year was a 6'5 center, for example.

But good for Augustana. Bad for Iowa. But this is a real exhibition, so I can't get too worked up about it.

Unless there are some good Fran shots. I'd like to see those.

As probably the only the only alumnus of Augustana on the MgoBoard, I must say, this is pretty frickin' cool. Augie (as we're affectionately known) is a really good D2 program. But yeah . . . D2 program. Oh Iowa . . .

Not an alumnus of the school, but growing up and graduating high school from Sioux Falls I have many acquaintances who attended Augie. Most of my family graduated from SDSU while I graduated from the University of Sioux Falls. That being said, I will never cease to enjoy any loss of any school from the state of Iowa to any South Dakota university. Those weirdos need to learn how to drive.

of Orange City. Kid should have gone D-1 but here in the boondocks of Northwest Iowa we don't get much attention from P5 schools. Maybe this shot will wake up some of the bigger schools to Danny's younger brother Levi, a tremendous 12th grade point guard.
