Game at Noon eastern/ 11 Central.  Some Iowa fans smell an upset.  I think they will be upset after we win.  Go Blue!

I think I may have underrated Iowa, they look like a tournament team so far...

I've been down on Iowa all year (even their close loss against IU, I put on IU playing bad, not Iowa being, you know, good) but their defense l Basabe/Woodbury/Clemens trio could do damage

I think it's a testament to how good this team is that we can shoot poorly, get relatively outplayed, and still be only down 2 or 3. All it takes is one little streak where we shoot well (which this team is more than capable of) to take control of this game.

It happens man. When you're playing a guy that is 3" taller, you're going to catch some elbows. Mitch is the type of guy that you don't want to hit in the nose, because he'll stop thinking and just start playing his balls off. It didn't look to be malicious or anything. That guy is all bones and elbows. Mitch will put him on his hip take him for a ride if he wants to get physical around the paint.
