Tune in to the AP News Top 25 college basketball poll. Check back weekly for updated rankings of the NCAA top 25 basketball teams.
Polls are like figure skating scores. Don't mean shit.
Why not post Iowa's net ranking...that actually counts for something.
Oh, I see what you did there.Same old Iowa - it’s year 12 of this shit - being ranked and playing good basketball in one of the best conferences in the country gets really combersome. Having a team full of talent that just reloads and is competitive every season just isn’t cutting it
Caught a Rutgers/Maryland game at the RAC a few years ago when my best friend lived in PA.PS. I believe Iowa will lose at Rutgers tomorrow night. That's a tough game to win IMO and it won't change much on my opinion of this squad if they lose.
Yeah, it's a tough place to win and I imagine their win percentage at home the last several years bare that out. That said, I am a weirdo when it comes to home and away basketball games. In my head, I just pretty much count on all road games to be loses. By the same token, I project all home wins to be W's - that way I am pleasantly surprised from time to time and IMO, Hawks should hold home court to any program in the country. Doesn't always work out that way, obviously - upsets happen and road wins happen but - road wins are so hard to come by in college hoops it tends to work itself out record wise over a season. Iowa might steal a couple on the road and they are likely to get upset at home once or twice a season too.Caught a Rutgers/Maryland game at the RAC a few years ago when my best friend lived in PA.
Rutgers is Rutgers, but sonofabitch that place is rowdy and LOUD as hell. Tiny little arena but the crowd is right on top of the court and the weird shape of the building makes it like an echo chamber. It sounds like a 20,000 seat arena on TV but i think it seats like 8,000 people or something like that.
Those folks on the east coast take their basketball as serious as we take football in the midwest.
Oh I knew you weren't. It's crazy to me that the NET likes Iowa so much... I definitely don't get the math haha
