Maybe, Just Maybe

Today's post is more Hawkeye, less Republican for a change: congrats to the men's basketball team for a clutch home win over the Indiana Hoosiers. Given that we were expected to finish 9th in the Big Ten before the season started, I've been relatively impressed with this year's team. More importantly, this win keeps the Hawks in contention for a spot in the NCAA tournament (quit laughing, UNI).

After today's win, the Hawks are 4th in the Big Ten with seven conference games left to play. We have a great chance of beating Northwestern, Purdue, and Illinois at home. On the road, we're also in good shape to steal victories from Minnesota and Penn State. On the downside, I won't expect to see anything spectacular in Madison on February 10th or East Lansing a week later.

So let's pretend that we finish the season strong at 5-2. That leaves us with a final record of 18-12 overall and 10-6 in the Big Ten (probably 4th or 5th place, depending on how the rest of the league shapes up) heading into the Big Ten Tournament. Assuming we don't win the tournament (which is never a safe assumption for a Steve Alford-coached team), that's the textbook definition of a bubble team.

Side note #1: Major props (I guess that's what they say in basketball) to the Hawks embattled center Seth Gorney, who outplayed Indiana's highly-regarded forward D.J. White.

Side note #2: What is a Hoosier anyway?

Comments:
The Hawks have certainly been impressive the past two games, especially given the lack of frontcourt depth.
 
The Hawks have really show some guts and staying power the last two games. They're playing hard and ignoring the rankings. You can tell that they believe they are better than what everyone says they are.

Here's to March Madness, even if it's in the NIT!
 
Nice post. I'm getting the Hawkeye basketball fever.

On side note #1: I can't believe you gave props to Seth Gorney. Ugh.
 
To answer the question about Hoosier, I think the most credible story is that there was a man named Hoosier in Kentucky who was gathering laborers for work in Indiana. In Kentucky, therefore, there was brief period of time (it is thought) that people going to Indiana were called Hoosiers, in reference to their employer. Not verified. But the most credible story it seems to me.

I was interested to see this site linked through mybloglog.com to our First Republicans site, for Iowa has always been a state for which I have had personal warmth as the landing place of a branch of family. My middle name is Hilton. My Grandmother's older brother, born like her in poverty in the mountains of North Carolina, traveled to Purdue to get his education in Agriculture. (He summoned her to Indiana, where she met my grandfather and remained.) He went on to Iowa and is the Hilton who became president of Iowa State. (In fact, in the room next to me sits a family fern if you can believe it that is over 100 years old that sat on the front porch of the house in which he was born in North Carolina.)

But I digress.
 
A hoosier is a scarlet and cream minor predator, like a feret, a times driven by maniac, viloent intensity and supported by a highly corrupt B10 officiating staff.

A hoosier is far more welcome in autumn than in winter, although they have become progressively less fierce over time.

Its better to crush them hoosier, foul critter that it is.
 
Alford is truly a Hoosier, and no longer welcome in Iowa, that is for darn sure.

Blog about real estate chanute kansas

Hi

Enjoyed the blog - nice to see someone else has activated their anonymous feature ;-)

I'm interested in investing in the real estate market in the US and am looking for some really cheap repossession properties in Beverley Hills, Santa Barbara, Denver, Colorado, San Francisco, Fort Lauderdale, Iowa, Hawaii, British Columbia, New Jersey, New Hampshire, New England, Minnesota, Miami, Florida, California, New York, Washington, Dallas, Texas, Chicago and Los Angeles. I've found a couple of really good sites - Bargain network which has some really cheap homes and Texas Ranches for sale - ranches in Texas plus both sites have beachfront villas and cars that have been repossessed and are really cheap!! Just wondering if there are any more sites like this.

Thanks for this.

Lortab is the brand name for the combination of acetaminophen (Tylenol) and hydrocodone. Lortab is prescribed for moderate to moderately severe pain. Hydrocodone binds to the pain receptors in the brain so that the sensation of pain is reduced. Acetaminophen halts the production of prostaglandins which otherwise cause pain. It is available in tablet, capsule, and liquid form and is taken every 4-6 hours by mouth. Since hydrocodone can be habit forming, care must be taken to follow the doctor's instructions when taking Lortab. Do not take a larger dose, or take it more frequently, or take it for longer than the doctor has prescribed.

Hydrocodone is an effective antitussive (anti-cough) agent, and as an opiate it is also an effective analgesic for mild to moderate pain control. Five mg of hydrocodone is equivalent to 30 mg of codeine when administered orally. Early comparisons concluded that hydrocodone and morphine were equipotent for pain control in humans. However, it is now considered that a dose of 15 mg (1/4 gr) of hydrocodone is equivalent to 10 mg (1/6 gr) of morphine. Hydrocodone is considered to be morphine-like in all respects.


Iif you suffer of these symptoms: in back, head, of muscles or some another pain doubt not in contacting us. We are crdrx.com the best pharmacy online. You can buy Lortab and Hydrocodone at http://www.crdrx.com

"The Big Dance", "March Madness", "The House", "The only tourney that matters" , and many other names refer to the consummate collegiate sports championship event: The NCAA Basketball National Championship Tournament. Yet with the growing annual hype, million-dollar bracket contests, office pools, Cinderellas, march madness glass slippers, "the bubble", and Dick Vitale and his "P-T Players", nowhere on the net could I find a repository of the 64-team brackets from all the years of the 64-team Dance.

The design is 40's inspired and comes with a 38mm case, while the Navitimer World is one of Breitling
's largest watches ever made, measuring 10% bigger than the Navitimer. The Bentley Motors
for Bentley collection is a self explanatory collaboration between two of the most renowned brands within their respective industries. Some of the less popular Bentley Motors T
collections (among the general populace at least) seem to be the Aeromarine Avenger and Colt ones as well as the Professional Skyracer. Since all Navitimer Watches
really are "instruments for professionals" they focus more on the functionality of the watch versus the look and when you first look at these collections.
