When I think of the aspect Norm is talking of I look to:
- UNC after beating the Zags, losing at home to a UK that is not the team we see now
- Arizona State beating #1 seed Kansas then losing at home to Princeton
- IU beating Sparty in Lansing and comes home to pee their pants to Iowa
- St. John's going to Milwaukee and sweeping Marquette, then barely showing up in MSG against Providence,
to name a few
Maybe that's the spot TCU is in tonight, but if you're expecting me to place Iowa State in a group with Kansas, MSU, Gonzaga, Marquette...that ain't me. A road win in conference is always respectable so I don't want to sound like I'm diminishing it, I would have more expected the Horned Frogs to be looking ahead to Kansas revenge, the fact they took care of business so easily speaks more to me of being able to attribute Iowa State to the late great Denny Scott's infamous rant.
