Hawkeyes Do It Again

Once again I was in attendance last night at Carver Hawkeye Arena as Iowa took down #11 Indiana. Another great game, the student section was rockin' and loud as ever. Indiana's best player is the Big Ten's leading scorer, Marco Killingsworth. Every time he came into the game or was at the free throw line, the student section would start a LOUD chant of "MARCO" - "POLO". He bricked every free throw he took....

Erin Andrews was the sideline reporter for the ESPN HD crew that did the game last night. HOT!!!

Superman is for real... He wears #8 for the Lakers

81 points.

I am not knew to the Kobe scene... I bought this shirt back on December of 2003 to show support to who will be known as the greatest basketball player that ever lived. Don't get me wrong, Michael Jordan is the best player to ever play basketball.. but Kobe is only 27 years old. 27. He still has 8 - 10 years of playing left. A few more seasons like this where he might average 40pts a game... and yes, he will go down as the best player ever. He already has 3 NBA titles, and there will be more.

Read this article by Marc Stein at

Is 81 enough?

Eighty-One, people.

I'd say so. I'd say all those pre-Christmas wails about Kobe Bryant ripping us off by hanging 62 points on the Dallas Mavericks in three quarters and then sitting out the fourth can suddenly be recalled with a chuckle.

Turns out Kobe's Dec. 20 detonation was not a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for No. 8 to make a run at 80-something points. No one was cheated after all.

Maybe Kobe and his pal Phil Jackson, when they reached that joint decision to stop abusing the Mavs because the Lakers were up by 34, knew they wouldn't have to wait long for another chance at it during an up-for-grabs game.

Why not? You can believe anything on a night like this.

Kobe's chance dutifully materialized almost exactly a month later, on a Sunday that was supposed to belong to gridiron football. You know. The table-setter for Super Bowl Extra Large and all that.

Sorry, NFL.

Sunday will be remembered as the best NBA day in a long, long time. There was a nationally televised buzzer beater in Minnesota from Philadelphia's Andre Iguodala to cap a 19-point comeback in the afternoon ... and then Seattle's Ray Allen beat Phoenix with a way-out buzzer bomb at the horn of overtime No. 2 in a 152-149 throwback thriller ... and then simply the greatest individual performance ever recorded: Bryant's 81 points in a 122-104 come-from-behind victory over the Toronto Raptors.

You'll recall that, sadly, there's no footage of Wilt Chamberlain rumbling for 100 points in Hershey, Pa., on March 2, 1962. Which makes it tough to commission an in-depth analysis comparing Wilt's feat (scoring 100 of his team's 169 points that day) to Kobe's (81 of 122). But I'll gladly settle for the forthcoming flood of Kobe replays, in which you'll see him haul the Lakers back from a 71-53 deficit against a Raps team that kept the game sufficiently close in the final quarter to keep Kobe out there shooting.

Against a Toronto team that somehow held him to 11 points when the teams met in early December -- historic footage now -- Bryant wound up with 55 points after halftime. Fifty-five. For a little perspective, please note that matches the best scoring game in Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's career. That's the same Abdul-Jabbar who, before becoming a Lakers assistant coach, was merely the NBA's all-time scoring leader.

Don't forget, furthermore, that no less an authority than Michael Jordan has been known to say that a perimeter player has it way tougher when it comes to making a legitimate run at Wilt's record. Factor in the ball-handling responsibilities and the energy required to play defense all over the floor and you can understand MJ's theory. This might also help back it up: Jordan himself topped out at 69 points as his one-night best and needed overtime to get there.

No offense to the late, great Chamberlain, but he was in a better position to dominate a box score with the size and strength advantage he possessed, especially in Wilt's era. Some of you will inevitably counter with the claim that Kobe had the benefit of a 3-point line, but don't exaggerate. Having the long-ball option added only seven points to Bryant's total.

With a mere 74, he'd still have registered the richest single-game scoring output in NBA history by anyone not named Wilt.

With 81, so soon after so many opined that he had blown his chance to ever scrape that stratosphere, Bryant has reminded us what we all should know by now about him.

Whatever you think about the game's foremost love-him-or-loathe-him face, and the ongoing debate about how much he shoots, you always have to be ready for What's Next with No. 8.

Chances are it'll be something to dissect for days and days.

Chances are, on the thinnest and neediest team in Jackson's ring-filled history, it won't be the last time Kobe has the forum to fling 40-something shots at history.

Sometimes You Feel Like a Nut....

... sometimes ya don't. Wal-Mart stores have condoms, KMarts don't.

Colorado Man Finds Condom in Filbert Nut

RIFLE, Colo. (AP) - A bit of online searching helped crack the case of the condom in the filbert nut. Police chief Daryl Meisner said it appeared no crime was committed when somebody put the condom-containing nut in a bin at a Wal-Mart Supercenter.

"This looks exactly like what I found on the Internet," Meisner said. "The condom was new and unused, so it probably wasn't anything malicious. I can't find where any law has been broken."

Dian Geist of Silt bought a bag of unshelled nuts from an open bin at the store. She said she and her husband, Brian, had a good laugh when the bright yellow condom popped out of the nut.

"I really don't want it, but my husband wants it back for some reason," she said.

The couple took the nut - and its contents - back to Wal-Mart, where an assistant manager photographed it before the Geists took it to the police.

"Whether someone thought it was a joke, we take it very seriously," said Wal-Mart spokeswoman Karen Burk. "This is a food-tampering issue."

Meisner said someone had drilled a hole in the nut, emptied the shell and then plugged the hole with wood putty after the condom was inserted.

Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid

Pizza man says he was attacked by young girls

CINCINNATI (AP) -- A pizza delivery man in Cincinnati has told police he was the victim of a robbery attempt yesterday -- by a pack of girls.

Police say he described his assailants as five very young girls.

Investigators believe they're looking for suspects in the eleven-to-14 age group.

A police captain says it's a little disturbing.

The 21-year-old delivery man says the girls tried to take the pizza from him and ended up knocking him to the ground.

But he wasn't hurt, and nothing was taken.

He says when he arrived at the spot where he was supposed to deliver the pie, it seemed the girls were waiting for him.

Police are looking into whether they were the ones who phoned in the order.

Illinois. Eat It.

Yesterday my 2 brothers and I sat in Carver Hawkeye Arena and watched the Iowa Hawkeyes beat #6 15-0 Illinois. It was the first time Illinois has been held under 50pts since 1999. It was a great game and a great win for the Hawkeyes.. as many fans have given up on the Iowa basketball team in recent years. But not I. We also got to watch my cousin Drew, who is a student at Iowa, run down from his seat 20 something rows up on to the court after the win. It was both the funniest and greatest site I've seen in some time. I'm glad my brother Brad spotted him when he did...

If you'd like to watch the highlights or read about the game, you can visit or maybe you watched it yesterday on ESPN.

Go Hawks!

Complete Bullsh!t

Does this look like offsides to you?

So, in the Outback Bowl this morning, Iowa is down 7 with about 1:40 to go. They RECOVER an onside kick (and would have gone on to win the game, no doubt) but these complete hacks from Conference USA that call themselves officails, say that they were offsides. As you can see from the pic... it was not even close.

Worst Call Ever.

Here's an article from the Iowa City Press Citizen...

By the Press-Citizen

Three terrible calls by the officials — two at the end of the first half and one at the end of the game — thwarted a gutsy Hawkeye comeback in the Outback Bowl as Iowa falls to Florida, 31-24.

The Hawkeyes were down 31-7 at the end of the first half, but mounted a spirited comeback in the fourth quarter by scoring two touchdowns on Drew Tate passes to Ed Hinkel.

Iowa was driving late in the game when they were forced into a fourth-and-10 with less than 2 minutes to go in the game with no timeouts and down by 10. Kyle Schlicher came on to hit a 45-yard field goal, and the Hawkeyes lined up for an onside kick.

Schlicher lined up on the right hash and got the requisite high bounce on the kick. The ball bounced off of one Hawkeye's hands and into the hands of Scott Chandler.

The officials called Hawkeye linebacker Chad Greenway for being offsides on the kickoff. The replay clearly showed that Greenway was behind the line of scrimmage on the kick.

Iowa lined up for another onside kick, but Florida claimed this one, and the Gators ran out the clock for the 31-24 victory.
