    56 days until basketball season

    Glad to see we get an extra body to throw to the wolves this year with the clearance of Calvin Godfrey. The cathedral that is HILTON will grab the magic back now that Lord & Savior Fred Hoiberg has arrived. The sky will surely open up on us a few times, but by the end, we will see light. Have faith, for HE will guide us.

    Re: 60 days until basketball season

    I think Freddie will bring magic back, but I think this is a year to just sit back and think about the future (I think I'm agreeing with you?). This year could be a rough one.

    Re: 60 days until basketball season

    Yeah, I don't have many hopes of any thing but an overall .500 record for this year.
    It's still gonna take some time to undo that amount of damage.

    I'd be happy with a 500 record this year, that's as good as we have seen for a few years!

    It's gonna be a bumpy road this year, for sure. One thing is for certain: This ISU basketball team will not lose 6 conference home games. Not happening.

    Re: 60 days until basketball season

    I think we will be the team that causes every team the comes to Hilton problems. We may not win a majority of our games, but we will be in every game. That is all I ask for this year.

    Re: 60 days until basketball season

    While we'll be down this year, I think that the moves that Fred has made will keep us from being epically bad (see Iowa). Those seasons are the hardest to come back from. Thankfully our non-conference schedule is pretty easy so the team can gel before the tough games start.

    Winner of the basketball game might have 35 points, too. Loser will probably have more than 7. Probably.

    Re: 60 days until basketball season

    This basketball season is nothing to get excited about IMO. Next year....a different story.

    What?

    There's plenty to be excited about. New staff, some new players with very good potential, likely a new style of play. The guard court is the most experienced and talented since Blalock, Stinson, and Carr left. That alone could get this team to the NIT. Godfrey's eligibility helps immensely with post defense and rebounding.

    Re: 60 days until basketball season

    I am excited for this year. I think we will cause some problems with some teams just because we have so many unknowns. Although I suppose that could cause problems for us as well. Either way I am getting my first cyclone club membership and my first season tickets. Next year im adding football tickets.


    Just my opinion...

    There is no reason this team can't beat Baylor at Hilton. Baylor is 0 for Hilton. I can only recall only a couple of close games.


    Tech and Oklahoma. Both kinda in our situation. Really don't know how bad it can get.

    Mizzou, Colorado and Nebraska are all winnable games at home.

    Kansas State and the Cheater Beakers are the killers.


    6-2 at home
    0-8 on the road

    This is what I envision happening.

    Re: 60 days until basketball season

    If the way some people on this board handle losing to a top 10 football team on the road is any indication, the coming basketball season might just make the internets implode.

    if you are expecting a win over baylor at this point in the season, you are high. baylor made it to the elite eight last year. i dont care about past history, this team is just not good, experienced, or deep enough to beat a top 15 team
