    I've been trying forever to find the nipple guy behind the backboard, when Calathes was shooting his FT's. It's great image of fans.

    I think Allen is still as loud as it gets for big games, but it really isn’t even close to what it was in the 90s/2000s. I went to games that were deafening.

    I can’t say, but I will say that Self’s teams don’t seem too scared of Rupp.

    Your program would piss themselves at the sight of a Sweet 16 banner.

    They’re only scared of Kentucky in the title game.

    If we’re being honest, I think they were just in awe of the fact that someone would actually walk out of his house with a full-fledged unibrow.

    I’ll celebrate someone naming us national champs in a pre-tourney era waaaaay before I’d celebrate a recent NIT appearance.

    The Iowa equivalent to a Helms would be if some organization declared them a member of the NIT field in absence of a tourney this year:

    According to this site which just ranked schools solely on academics Iowa came in dead last in the Big10 with a ranking of 218. Next closest was Nebraska at 178.

    For overall school ranking, highly respected US News ranking has them a little better as they finally get past Nebraska and tie with MSU. Ranked 84 overall, tied for second to last with MSU.

    True. I think the last time was halfway through the Roy era. Around the time you last reached the Sweet 16. RollLaughRollLaugh

    better yet, I think it's your turn. You said I was wrong, I put forth two rankings showing I was right, one of which is considered the most respected ranking out there. Shouldn't be too hard for you since you are already insinuating that you've seen plenty of rankings where Iowa is not considered the doormat of the conference.

    Respectability is so far out of your reach. Yet you're so desperate for it.

    Sad, really...

    Ha, here's another one for ya. Once again, congrats on being a better school than Nebraska! That's 3 total links, the only 3 I've looked at.

    I didn't go to as good a school as Iowa, but I'm pretty sure 3 links qualify as "multiple" Laughing
