I agree 11 sounds about right. A lot of teams in front of them lost. And your right about Spence. He won't have to do a lot to win games for this team, but when he does have to play well, can he is the question.
No it's not a trap game it doesn't even fit the definition of a trap game. Maybe if they played a good team next week, but they play Rutgers so no this game is not a trap game unless you consider their win against Iowa State big win which I don't because Iowa St. maybe the worst team Iowa plays...
I can picture many black athletes saying "iowa city and risk getting shot by the cops
I don't think they will be intimidated, but I could see a black recruit saying that he doesn't want to get shot over a case of mistaken identity so he won't go play in Iowa City.
I wonder if this will affect recruiting? I mean I don't know if a lot of players wan't to go to a place where their safety is a concern and things are pretty heated with the Police across the country. Terrible move by the Iowa City Police Department.
They have lost a ton of momentum and I say they end up finishing 2-2 and barely make the tourney. They are going from being ranked in the top fifteen to dropping out. If that isn't losing momentum than I don't know what is.
