Re: Please dear God, don't allow me to do this again.

It is true Astroman that we have unknowns and there is a remote chance of a 1-6 start based on the difficultly of those first 7 games. That being said, there is not one game on our schedule where we don't have a fighter's chance of winning. We have the ponies and mental toughness to be competitive a...

Re: SB on 1280 the Zone

Jack Trice stadium at Iowa State sells tickets to sit on grassy hills in the corners. I've watched a few games from the frozen ground there in late November before.

Re: Viko Nomaaea Commits

One other comparison between Quayle and Viko that I noticed is that they are both very good rebounding guards. They aren't tall but can jump and have the mindset to go get the ball.

Re: Best young coach

I've been impressed with Fred Hoiberg. He's not that young (40ish) but had no coaching experience up until he took over Iowa State a few years ago. Just signed a 10yr deal to keep him in his home town for a while.

Re: Indirectly Aggie Related UNM losing Alford?

Yeah, good point NE. I think they should have never fired Doctor Tom. McCaffrey will get them there though.

Alford can recruit but just can't coach. You have to be able to do some in-game coaching to go far in the tournament.

Big mistake for UCLA and a blessing for the Lobos. UNM had hit their ceiling with Alford. Alford is notorius for making a run in his conference and then exiting the Dance early. That is why he got run out of Iowa. He will do the same thing in LA, mark my word. Neil was with him here in Iowa and will...

Re: The where do you stand thread.

I think we'll be in the next group along with UNR and FSU, and possibly CSU if Larry can rebuild well. If we show the same toughne...

Re: DC

Any chance it is Jim Leavitt? I'm not sure if he has any ties to Coach Wells. He's the one that built the USF program from scratch. He's the LB position coach for the Niners so perhaps being DC at USU wouldn't really be a super stretch if he decided he'd rather coach college kids.

They will be in their 2nd year with Chow, have a lot of returners, and have a high ra...
