Hope there isn't a big emotional letdown from Saturday, especially with the quick turnaround.

Hoping for a W tonight but expecting an L.
Would love to be wrong but I think will struggle to get stops. Expecting a high scoring affair.
Prove me wrong Bears

More zone? TCU not very proficient from 3 point range (maybe O'Bannon will finally shoot like he does against the rest of D1?)
IowaBear
How long do you want to ignore this user?
I hope so! They have some good ball players in Nelson, Anderson, Miller. But they only have 1 good 3pt shooter. I'd zone them. They could and likely will kill us in the paint in we go man all game

Hoping I am wrong, but expecting TCU to be ready for a rivalry game, us not so much, and for some fairly average TCU player to have the game of his life.

Would love to reverse that whip tonight.

We are going to win tonight.
That which does not kill me, will try again and get nastier

Having a pregame margarita on this 88 degree day before I head to Schollmaier.

That school has really given us some crushing defeats in both sports the last few years.

22 FB loss is one that sticks with me more than any L BU has taken in any sport the last 5 plus years

Exactly what I'm afraid of, and I think we might lose by double digits. Just not enough time to recover emotionally and physically from that overtime heartbreaker. With Love out our starters played basically the entire game and overtime and are probably completely depleted physically and mentally. Would love to be wrong.

I hope we'll actually guard Nelson this time and keep him from scoring 30 against us.

In the games after us he's scored:

10
3
6
14
9

2020 the COVID year when we were #2 in nation and lost here to a barely.500 team sticks in my craw still.

Cost us a regular season championship even though season got cancelled later.

Do all the seats there have pretty good court views?

I'm not there yet but yeah I've always thought it had good sight lines as I've sat all over over the years.

The one thing they did I wish we did in Foster is having a Hall of Honor. SMU also did that in the Moody remodel.

Just saw it's Senior Night. They're honoring their 10 (!) seniors.

Hard to get over that one especially given that we had a golden opportunity to screw them out of a trip to the CFP as a payback to them for doing that to our '21 team the season before. It's so frustrating that we either lose big to TCU or otherwise find creative ways to lose winnable games to them.

Caught my first IA Rainbow Trout a bit ago…. We're definitely winning now. Take it to the bank
Stefano DiMera

Remember not too long ago our crowd outnumbered them .

Either Dixon has done a good job building the brand .or we have an apathetic fan base .or both..

It's loud pregame...the boos when we came out were vociferous.
