I knew some turd nugget would bring this up :roll:

The two schools play early in the season and this will almost always hurt UNI. UNI will naturally have less talent then BCS schools, so they recruit smart players that can adapt to a system and that fit in the system. Iowa gets solid talent that may or may not be too bright and may or may not fit the system; it usually ends up being a nightly one man show. Seeing how they play early natural talent will win 8 out of 10 times versus a system structure. By the way UNI’s best shooters are a Juco transfer and a Freshman, so naturally it took them awhile to get the system down and get into game mode ........ now they are rolling. Look at the two programs today; UNI is playing very confidently and the system is running at full steam. Meanwhile Iowa is still trying to win on talent, but the talent doesn’t’ fit the system or the talent can't stay eligible. Depth is another issue. If Iowa’s “talent” has an off night they loss, If UNI’s starters are struggling their bench steps up, because the system runs past the starters or main talent. Let play this game later in the season when both schools should be performing at their best and see who wins.

I just saw this guy play for the first time the other day on the Mediacom channel (vs. my old high school Waukee) and i was amazed. Now I know Waukee isnt exactly the best measuring stick but Barnes was all over the place, knocking down threes, driving thru the lane for easy dunks, blocking (or slamming) any shot away that was put up in the lane. That guy is just crazy to watch. He can go anywhere he wants but right now his list has Iowa, Iowa State, Indiana, Kentucky, and Texas on it. I'm not sure if he's good enough to be one and done, especially since he still has another year of high school left but it'd be sweet to see him here at Iowa.

It doesnt matter if it is Waukee or Valley, or East or anyone hell even ISU. He does it to all of them!! The kid is going to be outstanding and could be a one and done type guy but who knows. Like you said he is only a junior. You know when coach K comes to ames Iowa to watch a Junior play that he is something special.

Iowa has 0 chance of seeing Harrison Barnes, if he stays in the state, hes going to be a Clone.

Forgot to post this last week but did anyone see Kaylon Williams for Evansville make the top play on ESPN? Half court buzzzer beater to win. Kaylon went to CR Kennedy and was a stud there for 3 years. Might be Valley newcomer of the year.

No. Definately one of the most improved teams of the year as well. It's nice to see Illinois finishing on the good end of those types of games. The last 2 years we've suffered watching them lose by a point here and couple there after being ahead. The Beg Ten Tournament is going to be great. Just about any team could take it down except for N'Wstrn and Iowa.
NO!......Welp!?

never count Iowa out in the tournament. they seem to play there best b-ball in situations where they have no chance of getting to the dance. Im just hoping my Badgers can do something, cuz its not looking good
