  1. You win some, you lose a lot more. And so it goes.
  2. Don't you dare interrupt our kvetching! Beat the f*ck outta Creighton!
  3. And he's satisfied with attending a shithole university. There's just no accounting for taste.
  4. The only worse thing I can imagine is living in Iowa City.
  5. A true Spartan warrior and a Class A basketball player. Aurora. Pfft.
  6. I just assume anybody who doesn't want to play for us is a front-running pussy who doesn't think enough of himself to take a chance that everything might not be perfect. NEXT!
  7. As many wins as losses. Heartache.
  8. I worked at KU for four years (2009-2013) and shared season tickets with other KU faculty. It was a special experience nearly every time, but the biggest problem — shared with Nebraska's Memorial Stadium — was the girth of 21st-century Midwesterners compared to those from the mid-'50s, when Allen Fieldhouse was built. If you sat in a row with a few children, you might get lucky. We shared a row with all of Humboldt, Kansas, I believe, and the only way for everybody to fit was to stand — sideways. My goodness, it was uncomfortable. FWIW, I rooted for KU then against everybody except for Nebraska. I had a job to keep, after all. I've come to generally loathe the Jayhawks since, mostly because I'm jealous of their success.
  9. An assistant coach should have his own thread, no? USA coach joins Hoiskers.
  10. I'd be happy with 1 more if we finish with an 11-game winning streak.
  11. A couple is two.A few is three or four.Several is up to five.A number of is indeterminate.A lot of is more than five and less than infinity. So between 15-40 wins.
  12. An assistant coach should have his own thread, no? USA coach joins Hoiskers.
  13. It's also been a long winter of family tragedy — Mom died in November and Dad has been in and out of the hospital since — so watching bad basketball wasn't on my to-do list.
  14. After 55 years of fandom, I gave up on Hoiberg. I may have been wrong to do that. Be kind.
  15. No Shit Sunday. As in "we give zero shits that you're the Big Ten champs."
  16. The last full game I watched — the Colorado exhibition this year. Second, Peru State.
  17. Speaking of them, they went zero-for-15 from 3-point range Thursday night against Purdue but still won by 13, in part because the Hawks made 27-of-30 free throws. Warnock was zero-for-4 from deep. Which Hawkeyes will show up? The ones that haven't shot well for 13 games, or the ones that were unconscious at PBA?
  18. Iowa went 0-for-15 from deep against Purdue Thursday night. Warnock was 0-for-4.
  19. Iowa entered the game shooting 25 percent from 3. Even without Warnock's unreal shooting, the rest of the team was 4-of-10. I think Clark's celebrity status here in Iowa City has changed her. She was much less full of herself as a frosh.
  20. Iowa jumps out to 9-0 lead against IUPUI in Hell ... sorry, "Iowa City" ... led by as many as 18 and took a 62-47 lead into the fourth. IUPUI outscores the Hawkeyes 27-11 in the fourth quarter to win 74-73. Clark scored 19, but was just 1-of-7 from deep. Team was 4-of-22. Poor Lisa.
  21. It's the only team I'm paying attention to.
  22. Glad I didn't watch. I've pretty much had it with watching the Big Red lose. Don't know if I'll ever tune in again. I'm DVR'ing them all, just in case. Have fun, everybody.
  23. In the words of philosopher and boat poet Peter John Fleck: "Culture over talent."
