Iowa is 14-5 and #14 in KenPom. #3 in Offense and #84 in Defense.

Wisconsin has vastly improved since Micah Potter became eligible and are 12-7 and #19 in KenPom. #48 Offense and #28 Defense.

I fucking hate Wisconsin and want this game at home to get to 15-5 and 6-3 going into the Maryland game. It is meaningless, but they would likely be ranked in the Top 15 in the polls as well.

I'll take this opportunity to remind everyone that I still hate Kammron Taylor.

Also big to get this with 4 days rest, Wisconsin will only have 2 plus travel.

After this we have 2 days off and travel to Maryland. Then two days off, home vs. Illinois. Gonna have some clunkers eventually with the short rotation and core guys playing big minutes. Take advantage when you can.

Last year that dipshit Trice came into Carver struggling from 3 and naturally couldn’t miss.

He hit 3/4 against Nebrantska and I could be way off because I just watched the first half of that game and the announcers mentioned it, but he again is struggling with his shot and confidence. Please let him still suck.

We gotta get this one. We are very unlikely to beat Maryland on the road. Then that will set up a huge game against the Felching Illini back at Carver.

Maryland hasn't been overly great at home. They have trouble scoring and can be beat.

I think we're gonna win em all Dougie.

But, I'm taking one game at a time.
We'll win the games that we try but some games just aren't worth the effort. For example a 5 loss MSU team on the road would be asking too much. Hopefully the National Player of the Year stays back in Iowa City to get some rest.

Me neither. I used to go to 2 or 3 per year but haven't been to one in a few years. Just football now.

I want these next two games as badly as any in the last couple of years outside of the NCAA tournament. Fuck Wisconsin and Fuck Illinois.

I think we'll handle Wisconsin this time. They've lived a charmed life in both major sports for far too long.

I think Illinois will be tougher, with two bigs (including one monster big) to try to make life difficult for Luka. But we're going to get them in any event. The crowds had better be loud and involved, and I don't want to see a shit ton of Illini fans occupying CHA seats--especially because we're in a section that's a likely place for the migration to occur. On the other hand, the last time I was there during an Illini migration, the Hawks kicked their asses--and I never had so much fun being in close proximity to the Orange Crush.

GO HAWKS!
