SO IT’S TOURNAMENT TIME…..ONE OF THE BEST TIMES OF THE ENTIRE SPORTS YEAR….CYCLONE FANS ARE PUMPED TO GO TO SAN ANTONIO…WARM WEATHER….HAWK FANS ARE……..WELL, LET’S JUST SAY THERE HAWK FANS….A TRIP TO DAYTON WAS NOT WHAT THEY EXPECTED…”A PLAY IN GAME”….FIRST THE CYCLONES, AFTER WINNING THE BIG 12 CONFERNECE TOURNAMENT, IOWA ST. IS ROLLING AT JUST THE RIGHT TIME…THEY ARE A NUMBER 3 SEED AND ANYTHING SHORT OF A SWEET 16 APPEARNCE WOULD SEEM A LITTLE BIT OF A “DEBBIE DOWNER”…..FOR THE HAWKEYES THEY WILL BE MATCHED UP AGAINST TENNESSEE…THE LOSER GOES HOME, THE WINNER TRAVELS TO THE FIRST ROUND OF THE NCAA TOURNEY IN NORTH CAROLINA….THIS IS NOT WHAT THE HAWKS ENVISIONED…HOWEVER, THEY WERE OH SO CLOSE TO BEING IN THE LEFT OUT TOURNEY AGAIN, THE N.I.T…..
