Cornell, Northern Iowa, are there any other teams comprised of so many big, tall white guys? They are not the most graceful to watch, but their European genes have years of sneaky warfare. They don't play by the rules. Teams that are predominately white scare me. They are not better, they're just ....... I dunno, freak me out. And, I am also from European descent! Does anyone else fel this way about watching Cornell and Northern Iowa? This next game may be the one that makes you, too, hate white guys. Please help assure me everything will be all right.

I just hope UNI's big white guy Eglseder doesn't explode for 15 and 9 on us.

I don't think we can hold up to that kind of performance from their leading scorer and rebounder (12ppg, 7 rpg). He is fully capable of elevating his game to that level, believe you me.

The thing is that it takes 3-4 years of a team of european-americans to achieve the level of excellence it takes to make the field. So by that time it is their experience that makes them tough, like NDSU last year.

They would have scared me alot more last year than they do this year.

This will be a game of European warfare. The ugly tatooed German brute fighting the Scandinavian. Germans have years of warfare in their genes. I hope you are not from this group of stubborn, bull headed people, like me. Cole, on the other hand, looks like a Minnesota northern European, you knooooow, as in Minnesoooota. Gotta elongate your O sound. Good 'ole, Cole! Beat UNI!

I certainly hope Ali Farokhmanesh doesn't terrorize us with a barrage of 3-pointers. I'm even more worried about that than about the German going off for 15, which would be INSANE.

To hell with Syracuse's vaunted 2-3 zone-- that zone the Russians played at Stalingrad is epic.

All-Tournament BWG Teams:

Cornell
UNI
BYU
Duke (with David Bowie)

Could a BWG Team go all the way?

I hate all things associated with UNI, regardless of color, creed, race or religion. At least for the next 26.5 hours...

That being said, you'll probably find fewer people you agree with more about the problems with fundamentalist islam than someone who left Iran in the years prior to their revolution never to return.

You are correct--Iranian heritage, not born in Iran. Some must be able to return as my grade school daughter was just invited to Iran by her friend (though the friend is going back this summer, the invite was of course between grade schoolers and not serious). THe old Northern Iowa vollyball coach came over just pre-rev. I think he was even a persoanl trainer to the Shah's family.

Another post related to this thread just occured to me--KU benefited from a big player not far from where Eglseder comes from. That would of course be Raef Lafrentz. It might even be the same small school conference.

Okay. Just try to recruit an inner-city kid to UNI. "You like snow son?" I think Cedars Falls was the inspiration for "Frostbite Falls" on Rocky & Bullwinkle.

Yeah, I know you CAN return, but like Cuba, those who left pre-revolution and refuse to go back can be pretty hardcore. Not that I know anything or want to say anything about this kid or his father's politics with that statement...
