Gophers at Iowa State

6 posts in this topic

Had a chance to go down to Iowa State today, visit a friend and catch the game but just didn't want to be driving all night to do it.

The game isn't on TV, but I plan to check on the halftime score in a little while.

32-28 at the half.

I guess Iowa State got Adam Haluska's less desirable sibling Sean. He's highly inefficient (28.3 minutes per game, 0.7 points per game, 2.7 rebounds per game, 2.7 assists per game, 2.0 turnovers per game, 0.7 steals per game, 0.067 field goal percentage)

The first half summary from the stat book is Tollackson must be going to work in the middle. He's got 14, but he's giving up 17 to a freshman named Craig Brackins.

Not much from the bench (2 points).

Would like to see this team make some adjustments and build up a respectable lead in the second half. I think I've seen this team win about 4-5 road games in the last 2 years so they need to lay the foundation for this season right now.

McKenzie really heated up the second half. Gotta finish them off.

57-53 with 3:38 left. Tollackson has 4 fouls crazy.gif

2-0.

The story could be McKenzie's 5 threes and 20 points. What a second half. Seems like the groin is healed up. Tollakson playing well the final 6 minutes with 4 fouls didn't hurt much, either, with the two see-sawing for the team points lead during the half.

Following it on foxsports' web site rots. STUPID BIGTENNETWORK. Even so, you could sense Tubby's presence, with good things following his timeouts.

Gophers win. Strong finish by the team by not giving up big plays, pulling down D boards, and hitting your bonus free throws.

68-58 Final.

"Charmin Soft" Coleman....10 pts

Tollackson....21

McKenzie off the bench...20, mostly in the 2nd half...including 5/9 3 PTers

Rest of team....17

Lots of big minutes for the freshman to learn from and 71% team FT%

We'll take the win. Next game is Saturday and I'll be there.

Even only 2 games into the season and you can already feel the Tubby effect. Team plays alot tougher, better hustle. Iowa State is not a good team, but last year this game on the road was a loss. Heck, they lost at home. smirk.gif

      I belive you need to pick up permit day before you enter when getting a motor day use permit that's how it works on snowbank

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.
