So...the coaches think less of Iowa than they do MI State, apparently. Eff them. The Net doesn't rely on their bias.

We'll find out which team is better tomorrow night.

I know Rutgers, when it was shorthanded, lost a couple of bad games early, but c'mon. #80 NET for a team that just won four straight against ranked opponents? Rutgers NET is lower than Michigan, Indiana, and NW? That, my friends, is just plain ridiculous, IMHO. Right now, Rutgers is a worthy NCAA team, no question about it. The NET may be a good measure, but it's absolutely wrong about Rutgers so far.
