Golden writes about the scenarios for the important weekend game for ISU. It's been a very improved season for ISU, a win Saturday will really validate this season in a sense people will finally be able to say, hey, ISU didn't have to play on Thursday.

Should ISU lose, they will be the 8 seed and the casual fan will just look and say, look, they moved from the bottom of the play in round to the top.

this is really important and I am sure the ISU players will be fired up to finally beat MSU.

I just really can't see us losing this game. As good as we have played at home this year, combined with how bad MSU has been on the road. Just really don't see us losing this one. I say ISU 71-msu 58.

Go Trees!!!!!!!!!!:headbang:

I hope you're right there BT, the things MSU has going for them is they're 100% healthy for a change and are 12 - 1 vs ISU in the past 13 games they've played us. BUT, they're winless on the road, losing at Evansville and have played pretty sporatic BB recently, although they did beat Drake.

REBOUNDING will be the difference maker in this game, Book it!

unreal, 32-23 MSU, Don't these guys understand the IMPORTANCE of this game???? Good lord. Even the ISU announcers are saying the ISU players are not playing with any sense of urgency in this one.

Urgency

We're down by double digits @ half...that's good, although I would've preferred 20-25 pts. in order to AMPLIFY "urgency."

KMac has gotta start using his FC Press early in the game to get the ISU juices flowing...we're back to throwing bricks on offense.

The "D" is ISU's key...use it or close the book on this:censored: season.

well I sure hope McKenna did something at the half to wake these guys up, I mean, really, it's senior night and they're playing absolutely awful.

We'll see what happens??

41-26 already for MSU. DOWN FIFTEEN POINTS!!!!!! GOOD LORD!!

Surely these guys know they will be the 8TH seed in St. Louis if they lose!!!

the announcers are still saying ISU is playing with NO urgency. McCoy with his 2nd foul.

I just don't get it???

49-32 MSU, this is MSU, not WSU, ISU won't come back in this one. This is disheartening to say the least. ISU had so much to play for and they just gave it away.

Lamberth with 24 points, they can't stop him.

People are gonna look at this as another late season collapse by ISU since they'll be playing on Thursday night yet AGAIN.

even Golden says how disappointing the first half was in his blog. Utterly disgusting.
