    Game week is here, I fully expect us to lose this week on the road in what is basically a home game for #7 ranked ISU - but it is great to have hoops back & this is a very good RPI game for us.

    I'm encouraged that we can be competitive against ISU. They are a strong, experienced team and the crowd will be against us. They will have to forge a new identity without their Mayor, Fred Hoiberg. If we can hang with them early maybe some doubt will creep in the absence of their fearless leader.

    I'm really excited to see how Josh Scott matches up with one of the best bigs in country in Georges Niang. Our guards will have their hands full and this will be a huge test for them. I did some snooping around ISU boards and most of their fans are overlooking this game, which is fair given last season's results. However, there were a couple of fans that recognized this as a possible trap game for a team with a new coach. November is here. Go Buffs!

    A really exciting first game. I'm excited to see what kind of back-court we've really got. If we truly are a threat from the 3 point line and PG looks okay, we could really have a nice year. I'm also excited for the defensive adjustments, along with my eternal hope the Gordon will bring it all together.

    Hope the rumor is true. SMU was 27-6 last year, lost by a point to UCLA in the dance.

    Well, that makes one of us.

    I'm just happy to get the ball rolling. Hope springs eternal.

    Go Buffs!

    I love Niang & he is 1 of the best players in the country but he's a wing. Scott will be matched up with Jameel McKay more than Niang. McKay is an elite rim protector & he's really good at drawing fouls (6.4 FD/40) so Scott/Gordon need to be prepared for that.

    @BuffG you make a good point and I forgot about McKay. He will probably be defending Scott. However, Niang is the second tallest guy in Iowa State's starting five and there may be times where he is the tallest guy on the court for them.
