Early start tonight 6:30 (Eastern) on BTN.
OSU favored by 11. Gonna be a tough road game.
And OSU is the only Big 10 team that Fran has not yet defeted.
Let's Go Hawks!
Some bad habits to get rid of:
* Ohio State has won seven straight against Iowa, taking the last two meetings by a combined 51 points.
* Iowa has lost 19 of its last 20 road games against ranked opponents.
* One particularly weak spot for the Hawkeyes heading into this meeting is 3-point shooting. Iowa is shooting a woeful 20.8% from beyond the arc in its last six games.
I just lost $$ so I think it's a good omen for tonight's game. White returns home for the first time and Basabe seemed to play well against OSU. Go Hawkeyes!
Start of a brutal 5 game stretch. Would be huge to get a win.
How stupid am I???!! Today is my wife's birthday. Part of the presents is taking her out to eat tonight, plus a movie. She did say a movie would be fine for this weekend instead, so I had no problem with that. All I have to do now is convince her to go to a sports bar eating place instead of Olive Garden.
Pretty ugly stats you posted there, NYC. Actually, VERY ugly! Hope the Hawks can put an end to those ridiculous numbers!
It's an early game. Just convince her you'll take her out for something nice after the game if you can stay home and watch it.
Oh, and happy b-day mrs. goldendog.
My wife's birthday was last Sat and she got us a win against Wisconsin. Hope Mrs. Golden can do the same tonight!
White have to grow up fast since Fran just said on the radio that he's the primary defender on Deshaun. I think May would be a better match up. Still think Basabe should have a good night.
It's a tall order, but I think we'll see May and Mel on him quite a bit, too.
Any magic link to see the game on the computer tonight?
I'll find one for you around tip if somebody else doesn't.
I think the problem with May guarding Thomas is that he gives up a couple inches that Thomas could shoot right over him. I'm actually most worried about Craft being able to shut down our Freshman guards early and get into their heads.

DO YOU BELIEVE IN MIRACLES??!!!!!!
Daughter sick, below zero temps, and Birthday wife now suggests we send out for Chinese, her favorite food!
Things are looking good! Great omen for a Hawk WIN tonight!
Now all I have to do is walk to the store and back in the cold and the snow.
Did we win yet? Oh, wait it starts in 5 minutes.
Golden.........now don't go checking your Smart phone, during Mrs Golden's birthday dinner?
You've seen the commercial on how some guys get in trouble with that one.
Please pass along these HAPPY BIRTHDAY greetings to Mrs golden.
No worries, I think the Hawkeye have this one under control. So far..........
'Texan by birth, Hawkeye by the Grace of God'
Happy birthday to Mrs. Golden.... Have fun. Cheers.
It's a good start of the night already, lol. Let's break the series tied at 75, Go Hawks!
Marble's shot is beautiful now. Lots of improvement over the last season.
Woodbury got 2 fouls arleady with 2.5 min in. At least Basabe and McCabe will get plenty of playing time. IA down 1, 3-4.
Those fouls on Woodbury hurt.
Basabe grabbed two O rebounds and keeping IA chances to score. Down 5-8 with first commercial break.
Actually, I'm glad Woody has 2 fouls, so the better player, Melsahn can get in the game.
Come on, Marble. Be a complete player, not just a shooter, tonite.
This starting line up drives me nuts and it always leads to Adam picking up quick fouls. He needs help in the lane. I don't understand why Mel doesn't start.
Lao: please do something about this, will u? :)
Clemmons finally got a foul. Refs not calling even on the touches. IA keeping it close. IA lead 11-10 for a moment at 13 min left.
OSU is more athletic than IA and will have problems with any line up. Just hope IA can grind it out and get the rebounds on second chances.
Gus Johnson seems lost about Iowa's personnel and subs. Apparently, Gus didn't watch much Iowa, this year.
Ohio State sure getting away with lots of pushing, hand checking, early on, here.
Marble........be a complete player tonite......not just a shooter. Need you as a scorer and defender.
To Devyn's credit......had a very nice Offensive rebound there, early.
Basabe doesn't start because Woodbury is a better defender of centers and Basabe is good off the bench. Remember the post defense last year? Putrid.
