Just under 6 hours from tip, and already the butterflies are getting bigger and bigger.

Quite excited, yet a bit more than a little nervous.


The Hawkeyes [at peak form, as seen from 2/1 through BTT] should win, but as we all know very well, anything can happen in single-elimination tournament scenarios.

That is what has me worried, we have been playing red hot when does that wear off...
I read a quote, by an opposing B1G coach - in ESPN's article about the tournament last night - and they basically said "We've all been waiting to see when this roll Iowa is on will come to end, but it just keeps going.".

Here's hoping like hell it continues until late night of 4/4, as their hoisting the NC trophy and cutting down the nets!

It doesn't. Too focused and locked in.

I was at every game last week and we looked much more dialed in than at Champaign and we played well there...

We have stud guards, who D it the F up, a plethora of long scoring bigs who D and rebound, AND Keegan.

The B1G hasn’t been very impressive so far. Any team can beat anyone in this thing. I hope the guys understand this.
True. But Rutgers should have beaten ND, and it took two OTs for them to blow it. Meanwhile, Michigan shouldn't even be in the tourney, so maybe it's a tad early to draw conclusions.
