I'll work for you homey.
Gold medals aren't really made of gold. They're made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.
McCabe and May both came up with clutch shots down the stretch! WTG Hawks!
You go boy! lol. Let NYC know if you're there.
How SWEET it is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This team deserved a shot in the dance, but instead of hanging their heads they've come out and played their best ball of the year. Man has this been fun to watch.
I friggin hate I went to Iowa during the end of [redacted] and Lick's years of slumber. It's awesome to finally be excited for basketball in Iowa City again.
What Brad saids.....
Great win for the Iowa basketball program in a Nationally televised game, in the spotlight of MSG.
Congrats to Fran, Kirk Speraw, Andrew Francis, Sherman Dillard for believing in these guys.
In my humble opinion, Eric May was the Player of the Game.
'Texan by birth, Hawkeye by the Grace of God'
What's that smell..........??? It smells like a contract extension to me, along with a nice little raise in salary. Way to go, Fran!!!! You have earned it! (Say "hi" to Marge for me.)
We loves Marge. And sure Fran is ok too. Give him more than Alford. Just to prove the point. Stevie never made it to the NIT finals.
Before there was space or time there was rock and roll.
Missed the second half..saw the last 50seconds. Glad we hung tough! So awesome that we are headed to the finals. This is a great stepping stone towards next year. Plus more time to play means more time to get better.
Great win for Fran and the team. Cheers all!
20 minutes after the game ended, I walked thru my front door.
Will be there Thursday night.
Buck, you heard right, they were carting in a lot of beer -- unexpectedly. The party spilled out into the hallway. There were empty beer bottles all over the place. I think they will be better prepared next time.
let's Go Hawks!
That poor cleaning guy -- the minute he wheeled in a new garbage can, it was time to cart out a full one, and repeat the process over and over. The Hawkeye Huddle was on the 3rd floor of a big hotel and there was a conference next door with a registration table in the hallway. The looks on their faces said WTF of hundreds of loud, hard-partying bumblebees (black and gold) all over the place and hogging up the bathrooms and cramming the elevators both up and down.
It's gonna be a helluva party on Thursday.
Let's Go Hawks!
That is awesome.
Wrestling owns the Olympics
I am jealous of our NY peeps at the game last night and that get to go Thursday
I think he'll definitely get one if they win Thursday....not so sure if they don't, but it wouldn't surprise me.
Congratulations guys. You guys played well and started hot out of the gates. I was was impressed (but not surprised) with Marble, and I think that you guys have loads of potential for last year. If I am correct, you don't lose any prominent pieces, which is why an NIT run like this is so important.
From our point of view, this was basically a microcosm of our season. Turnovers have plagued us all year and last night was no different. We have went into scoring drought far too often, and with Dez in foul trouble, we couldn't get over the hump past a four-point game. Len did play one of his better games of the year though, which I am not surprised by (he tends to play well against good size and not so well against a team with lack of size...beats me as to why).
Nonetheless, I am looking forward to many good games with you guys in the B1G. You have yourself a good coach and a program on the upswing.
Thanks for the classy post, Shimmy. It was an intense game from my perspective. You are right in that the only scholarship player we lose is Eric May. Although he has only been in the starting lineup for a few games, I don't think you can overstate his importance during this NIT run. He is a leader, will hit a big shot and plays excellent active defense.
Life is hard. It's really hard if you're stupid.
