Iowa Basketball: Hawkeyes May Provide Only Drama In Big Ten Tourney

Blank reached base in all five plate appearances, drawing a season-high four walks to go along with a triple and an RBI. However, I don’t think these two teams are too far away from each other. The winner in this game will be the Texas A&M Aggies.
The Aggies of Texas A&M will begin the season against the Southern Methodist Mustangs. Tune into the Aggies Mustangs game on 4th of September which is on Sunday of week 1. Both of these team are in the C-USA – West conference. As for the running game of the , they banged the ball on the ground for an average of 138.8 yards per contest. In this game, the edge goes to Texas A&M Aggies. In looking at the performance of Mustangs in 2010, they finished the season at 7 – 7. The numbers tell a story. The Mustangs finished last year ranked 21st in passing and 81st running the football.

I have to give respect to the Cyclone fans. My expectations were very low heading into the game, but Jack Trice Stadium is pretty cool (did you know it’s the only Division I stadium named after an African American?). I feel like it could be a little more energetic in there, and there’s not a lot of tradition and history. But for the most part, it’s a decent setting on a college football Saturday.

It is hard to say that Hoiberg is better than McCaffery when Hoiberg has only coached one senior at the collegiate level. And most Iowa State basketball fans feel like the team was disappointing in Big 12 play after a promising start in the non-conference season.

Sophomore running back, and current preseason All-Big 12 player Roy Finch, is not listed in the rotation. He is also absent from the entire depth chart, including special teams. To expand on why this is shocking, look at the 2010 season.

Kansas Jayhawks – It figures to be a tough season in Lawrence with playmakers Kerry Meier and Dezmon Briscoe and QB Todd Reesing no longer on campus. That means it’s going to be a rebuilding year, but success should resurface soon with Turner Gill and Chuck Long calling the shots.

Jordan Gross donates $500,000 to the football program. Along with his wife Dana, the current Carolina Panther pro bowler announced the gift on July 27. His gift is added to those previously made by other current NFL pros Steve Smith (Gross’s teammate on the Panthers) and San Francisco 49er quarterback Alex Smith. They join basketball pros Andrew Bogut and Andre Miller in making significant contributions.

The Cyclones never got past the Oklahoma 49-yard line after halftime. Backup Jerome Tiller replaced starting quarterback Austen Arnaud on the second drive of the third quarter, but had even less success against the Sooners’ defense.
