Indiana-Iowa

Indiana-Iowa 


Being reported today that Iowa's fine running back, sophomore Mark Weisman, has an injury and won't play against Indiana.  Appears to be a hip, with lingering ankle issues.  Hate to see any kid hurt, but this can't hurt our chances:

You guys should stomp the hawks - they have the worst O in the B1G and a pretty poor D as well. Weisman is probably the slowest TB the conference has seen in 10 years.

IU should put a beat down on Iowa, no excuses at this point. IU's got A TON to play for too.

Not so fast my friends. Don't count the hawks out in this game. Why would a Wiscy fan say how bad we are? Look in the mirror. We win this weekend and beat Purdue the week after.

RE: Indiana-Iowa 


It would be a huge mistake to take any B1G win for granted, and a mistake I don't think Coach Wilson will allow the team to make. Things are looking good for us at this point in terms of positive energy, momentum, and injuries, but we need to stay focused on the job at hand and take care of the Hawkeyes.

Plenty of time and reasons to talk about Wiscy afterwards.

None of these guys sees a minute of court time for the B1G top 5 - IN, WI, OSU, MSU, MU - the 8th seeded BB team minus their only quality player will stuggle this year - guaranteed.

Yep.  We have a ray of light through the crack in the door...which hasn't been experienced this late in the year at IU since what, 1988?  The Iowa game is huge, no doubt, because it could keep the momentum for the Wisky game...which at this point is really the make or break for both teams.

If, somehow, IU was able to upset Wisconsin at home (my odds have that at 25% currently, pending the Iowa outcome)...you would have to start questioning Wisky's ability to beat BOTH PSU and OSU to finish the season...whereas, at the same time, an IU win at Purdue would start looking more possible (regardless of the PSU outcome in between).

Therefore, we could lose Iowa and PSU, but the Wisky game will be the key.  Even if we lose against Iowa, the Wisconsin game could be the one that decides the Leaders rep.

Re: Indiana-Iowa 


grats on your upcoming win this weekend against Iowa. 

I look forward to b-ball season and our match against IU.  I would say the same about Wisky but they should be an easy out for our 8th seeded b-ball team again this year.  Talk all you want STL...2-0 is 2-0!

btw...just ban stl now and save yourself some time mods.  You will thank me for it later.

+1 - you should be able to win this game easily which would knock iowa out of any bowl game. PSU is a much more difficult match-up than the hawks - who would have guessed that before the year? I wish we could replace PSU with iowa - that would be a blow-out! Our game should be a decent match-up - I would give us an 80-85% chance. See you next week!

Yeah, 15-20% is probably more realistic at this point...depending on the Iowa game.

That said, Iowa did beat MSU up there, so I expect a dogfight.

As a Hoosier, I'm just glad we're even considered in these conversations.

That said, I have us estimated at 45% to beat Iowa...a real toss up.  But if we do, does Wisky still overlook us focusing on the big boys at the tail end of their schedule...or do they rightly recognize that the IU-Wisc game is actually for the Leaders bid, not the games to follow.  And if they do recognize that, does pressure start to build in a "no way we should lose this game...but if we do, we're effed" type of way...especially if we do beat Iowa?

Next week could be nuts.

If you're even or + on TO's, you'll beat the hawks. Their O might be the worst in the B1G and their D is mediorce, at best.

Yeah, we suck.  We know it and admit it.  What about you guys?  Weren't you supposed to be RB bound?  What happened with that?

RE: Indiana-Iowa 


Not the start we were hoping for. Game delayed by weather, not an impressive crowd. Coffman did not look sharp on the first possession, missed a wide-open Bolser on third and long. Sudfeld gets his shot, throws a pick-6 on his first play. Glad to see Sudfeld get his chance, but we need to grind out a drive to get back in this one.

Ewald gets us on the board, but the momentum looks to be with Iowa as the first quarter winds down. Turnovers will even out, if we keep our poise and play our game--one would be sweet right about now.
