    "Neutral Site", while technically correct, will not actually be the case - which is fine. I like this kind of scheduling, similar to playing **** bailer in Dallas or Okie Lite in Vegas. Hopefully, we get a return game with the Clowns out of this.

    Sioux Falls is a bigger town that I thought. Over 162K people live there.

    routinely on "best" lists, as teets mentioned no income taxes. but sioux falls is a decent mid-west town.

    Sioux Falls is a decent small city.

    I may go to this. Have family a drivable distance away, which could justify it.

    Not going to get a return game without coming to hilton. There's one reason that both teams are at this event- a check from the arena\ESPN.

    Love the game......but in a 3,200 seat venue in Sioux Falls? I'd rather play them in Minneapolis.

    Pretty sure it's almost sold out. Cyclone fans gobbled up the tickets. The cyclones are a terrible matchup for the buffs...I'll be shocked if it is less than 15 point loss for the buffs. The venue actually looks pretty cool.

    Maybe he meant your 15 points was too low, and it could get worse.

    Just picked up my tix. It looks like a cool venue but I am guessing that 3k of the 3.2k crowd will be dressed like Ronald McDonald. Basically a home game for them.

    I'm really glad Tad scheduled this one. I'd think we should schedule 1-2 Big 12 games a year, and I was surprised and disappointed we didn't play any of our old rivals this year. It's such a solid conference top to bottom, so it's pretty much guaranteed to help our rpi. Except Texas Tech, they suck.

    I watched a game on TV played on Heritage Court last year. It's got an old-school hand clock, parquet floor, small field house atmosphere, and lanes that look like the 1950s - basically like watching Hoosiers. Kind of a fun gimmick, but then I looked into the complex and couldn't believe how state of the art it was and how nice of an option these facilities are for the people of Sioux Falls.

    Unless the Buffs learn to play defense, the Clones will eat them alive with their 3's.

    Definitely will heighten focus this off season. Our "fix" needs to start pronto. I like this actually. No slack into non conf, won't hurt tourney chances at all. Especially if we pull a rabbit out of the hat.
