Iowa up to #18 in KenPom. #2 Offense and #91 Defense. Penn State is #23 in KenPom. #36 Offense and #27 Defense.

Game is at a semi-neutral site in Philly, the historic Palestra. They have size inside with Stevens and Watkins and a couple of guys that shoot well.

I'm guessing they put Connor on Stevens. Might fuck him up some.

I still have two tickets if anyone wants them. I guess I could put them on stubhub but i really don’t need anything for them.

Not only would it get Iowa to 2-1 in the B10 (+ another Quad1 victory), but I really want them to win this game.

Fuck Penn St, their seemingly [at least one] 10-yr senior per season, and the Hawks' normal losing in heartbreaking fashion to them in PA (except last year).

Yes, it was all you Dougie.
Dumbfuck, you tried multiple times to give them away. I finally said I would gladly take them and was point blank that I would sell them.

Only at that point did you realize maybe you should sell them instead of fumbling around on here like a dipshit.

You sold them within 24 hours for $260. Your're welcome.

LOL I literally said in my first post that I could put them on stubhub.

I just usually use CL so they go to iowa fans.

I would actually be willing to take $50 of my proceeds and shove it up your ass if you’d like. LMK

This eight game stretch in January is huge.

1/4 @PSU (semi neutral site)
1/7 @Nebrantska
1/10 Maryland
1/14 @Northwestern
1/17 Michigan
1/22 Rutgers
1/27 Wisconsin
1/30 @Maryland

hopefully take one of the Maryland/Michigan games at home. Doubt we can beat Maryland on the road.

Seems like we could legitimately go 6-2 in that stretch. Probably at worst 4-4 IMO.

If we go 6-2, it should be a breeze to get to 20 wins. 5-3 and we’ll still feel pretty good. 4-4 and it starts getting tough to get to 20 wins.

I’m fucking pumped.

They're going to win some you don't expect and probably lose a couple you don't expect as well. Really just need to avoid losses to Nebrantska and Northwestern.

PSU is typically among the most frustrating games each year, so we’ve got that going for us.

I hope someone takes you up on the generous offer! Is there any kind of Iowa alum organization in Philly (doubtful)?

***EDIT: You penny-pinching bastard!

Game was set up with Fran in mind as a potential foe. The philly kids on PsU roster and the recruits currently in HS is the main reason it was set up.

Remember there is a 30 min pregame show that should be good today.

I'm sure that Cordell is a good young man in all other walks of life, but lord almighty is he just a huge net negative on the court this season.

I know the roster is very thin, so Coach Fran has to give him some minutes to let others get some air (or dealing with foul trouble), but CP's a big liability on both ends of the floor.
