MEN'S BB: The Iowa Hawkeye 2008-09 Basketball Schedule Has Been Released
Whether it was travel issues, laziness, or just wanting to keep the fans on the edge or their seats, the University of Iowa has finally released it's 08-09 Men's Basketball Schedule.
Iowa only gets Minnesota once (at home) and Illinois once (away).
Unlike last year, the match-ups between buddies Thad Matta and Todd Lickliter are eons apart; one at the very beginning and one at the very end.
Combined with the previously released non-conference schedule, Iowa will have a group of games (between 12/05 and 1/08) that they will be at Carver for 6 out of the 8 games, with one of the away games being in-state at Drake. It can't hurt leaving the state only once in a month's time.
No concrete predictions yet for the season, but we are looking at somewhere in the high-teens/very low twenties win mark, with a trip to the NIT in line.
