You know about the Sycamores by this point - Moss, Schnitker, so on, so forth. But we haven't talked about the Redbirds that much yet - they charged out of the gate with vim last year (8-2), but lost seven of their final eight. The cracks are already starting to show for the 2005-06 squad - they might have a 5-3 record and the 22nd ranked defense in the nation heading into conference play (84.9 D-rating, 55.9 ppg), but have had a lot of trouble finding scoring (they're led by Neil Plank's 11.5 ppg). They'll need all the Redbird Pride they can muster to pull out a win in Treeland. So happy new year, ISU and ISU!
