    to think that Iowa is currently ranked #19 and is #26 or #28 in the net ranking, not bad for a trash team and is solidly in the NCAAT, not to shabby. for a team that was picked to finish 10th or worse in the BT this year.

    not doing that as it is a long season. but the point remains the same that Iowa is doing a lot better than most expected. yes or no?

    I actually gave them more credit than you did. The post below was dated October 11th. I said one month before the season started that I thought Iowa could make it to the second round

    Meanwhile, hail asked you about your expectations for Iowa...

    Almost seems like I had more faith in Iowa than you did.

    I await your apology.

    before the injuries I actually said 11-9 in conference play maybe at best 12-8, as I predicted that BT would be a very tough conference for ANY TEAM to get a road win, been pretty spot on so far.

    as so far there have only 6 road wins so far, also said that Nebraska would beat Iowa at their place as they have beat Iowa 3 straight on their court,

    that was before they lost 2 starters in Nunge and Jordan.

    now Garza has taken his game to the next level, Wieskamp is now 100% after suffering a extended elbow injury, Fredrick has recovered from a stress reaction in his foot and has replaced Jordan's shooting plus is s quickere defender than a injurdered Jordan.

    again Fredrick has surpassed every bodies expectation.

    right now this team has settled into knowing that Jordan will not be playing this year. JT and BE are settling into their roles, Connor has settled into the role of being the 4th guard this year.

    last note Fran has done a much better job with a 8 man rotation. hoping next year he limits his rotation even though he will have more options, the 5 new players won't be needed so their minutes will be limited.

    Well at least you just admitted that the state of Iowa is > the state of Indiana by listing one city.

    Good call, and yeah it was that easy.......:)

    He sits behind Cade Cunningham and Moses Moody. Zeb is appropriately ranked and will have productive minutes next year.

    Show us on the doll where the state of Iowa touched you. SmokinSmile

    Also, I agree with you, except.....I don't. Because, after all...........you're wrong. And let's not forget.

    Iowa > Indiana


    P.S. And to put the final nail in this debate, just think about this. If I thought that there was a place in Indiana that was a better place to live than the town I'm living in here in Iowa, don't you think I'd be living there, if it was so much greater?

    Exactly.

    Drs Moines is a giant suburb. Not sure why he thinks it's Iowa. Clearly he hasn't spent time in the state

    I think you not moving has more to do with the wheels on your trailer being stolen, than you not wanting to leave.

    JMO, though.

    Stupid argument. Both states a very similar...culture, climate, people. Not much natural scenery in either. Politics are close, Indiana a little more conservative. Lived 34yrs in Indiana and almost 20 here. I'm usually not the expert in anything but in this case...I am SmokinSmile

    I don't know why you would stereotype me as someone who lives in a trailer, when the state of Indiana has more residents living in trailer homes.............:eek:

    Besides, what part of my name don't you understand?


    In fact, let me take a guess. Is it the part where....
    Iowa > Indiana SmokinSmile
    ?


    It is, isn't it. I thought so. ;)

    P.S. I've also given it some thought. Maybe it wasn't you that the state of Iowa touched................maybe it was your wife!

    10-8 with a Q3 loss to Nebraska....

    Honest question, do you think Purdue gets in with 17 wins? That would be 10-10 in conference play.

    I'm sorry, but if Iowa > everyone.....and therefore, Iowa > Purdue...................then Iowa > West Lafayette as well.

    Most PU fans won't even agree with that. Next time try something believable.
