    Sorry my bad. Just a bit behind the times.

    Several mentions of the Iowa loss what Iowa loss. Also we only play Rutgers once and that is done. I think we are crossing men and women's teams circuits a bit. Let's just worry about the next 2. If we beat Purdue at home and Iowa away we are going to be set up really well. We should win 5 of the last 7.
  3. Satisfying just satisfying.
  4. We're up 5 at the half, that's better than I expected. Surprised Kate is finding room to operate. We do need someone to heat up outside. Most importantly we seem to be cleaning up the glass pretty well defensively.
  5. I was thinking this was a game tailor made for Miss Woods to come up big behind the arc.
  6. Nebraska's youth, coupled with our free throw shooting prowess, I suspect that Rutgers will be dialing up the thuganomics. Our ladies better get their tough on. Controlling the defensive boards and making shots from the charity stripe count is where this game will be won or lost. We are a much better shooting team.
  7. Leigha Brown is 'N'

    The most impressive thing on the stat line was 14/14 on FT's.
  8. Iowa vs. Nebraska Game Thread

    Hud it's the whole rpi thing. In truth there would be very serious ncaa discussion if not for a foul call against Michigan. If we keep the pedal down, we will be getting some love.
  9. In truth I believe that we will have all the right pieces next year. Like any puzzle it takes a bit of time to figure out how they fit. Having something special in two years, I think he is right on the money.
  10. Against Michigan we played really great attacking offense in the first half and were a little loose on the defensive end. In the second half we played tough defense and did not really make enough shots. Hoping this is the game it all comes together.
  11. Seems to that Purdue did nothing to stop Gustafson ( hope that spelling is right). That being said we might want to play a bit of zone to limit Kate's foul potential. I really think this one will be won on the boards, limiting turnovers and for goodness sakes making foul shots. Coach Bluder knows how to read a stat sheet and isn't affraid to foul.
  12. Michigan pregame Talk

    Not sure the one on one match ups are the game. We could play zone to take away Thome and the three point line. Yeah, I know they are athletic enough to beat us on the bounce, but it's more a matter of what your willing to allow and what you're taking away. They are too athletic and too dynamic to take everything away without causing a potential foul issue for us. To me the biggest keys are hitting the boards to limit second chance points and get some of our own and respect the possession know SILLY turnovers. We seem to have about 6 to 10 silly turnovers per contest.
  13. BIG 10 Satndings.

    20? After Illinois we have very tough 5 game stretch. Mich., Iowa, Rutgers, Purdue, Iowa. If we win 2 of those 5, we should get 19 and be squarely on the bubble. 3 or more we will be playing for seating. It really is that simple.
  14. Non Conference record

    12-2 WSU and one to be named later, although I am the king of wishful thinking.
  15. I think you are correct that the posts will be actually posting up, but I have my doubts that Kate will be starting. Here's my reasoning and feel free to disagree. Judging by the type of players being recruited, I think Coach Williams wants to run and pressure. Running pressuring and posting up wears too much on the bigs, so I look for Rachel to start and platoon with Kate. I look for the other starter to be a stretch 4, which says to me Grace or Maddie. Someone else asked if Taylor was a good enough athlete. Athleticism is good not great, but here's why she'll see the floor a lot. Quick smooth release with outlandish accuracy well beyond the arc. The release will be quicker than most close outs, so she will really stretch the opposing defences
