WE'RE TALKIN' BASKETBALL: Iowa vs. IPFW Open Thread

(The superior video for "Curl the Burl" is here, but it's less appropriate for posting here.)

I had to look up which particular alphabet soup school "IPFW" was. Turns out it's Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne. Which is (a) confusing and (b) quite a mouthful. It also seems to suggest that they're linked in some capacity to Our Most Hated Rival, which means GRR HATEY HATE HATE. Anyway, the Mastodons (!) are 2-1 (lost to Xavier, beat Nebraska-Omaha and Judson College) and check in at #206 on the KenPom ratings. Of course, Campbell ranked even lower than that and we all know how that turned out. I think it's safe to say that Iowa really shouldn't be overlooking anyone at this point.

The game is on actual TV on Mediacom Connections at 12pm CT. It's also available on BTN2Go and via Ye Olde Interwebs Streams ($$$) at video.btn.com and Hawkeye All-Access.

The standard open threading rules apply: no links to illegal online streams, no porn, no politics, no religion, no slurs, no douchebaggery.

Please note that this is also your designated football open thread (which is why this is going up an hour before tip-off). Ohio State and Michigan are playing a little old game right now and Penn State and Wisconsin are battling for the IlliBuck Division title later this afternoon. And there are a bunch of other games that might tickle your fancy, too. If this thread gets too full, we'll add another one.
