    MBB schedule tidbits

    Brent Blum and I went through the ISU MBB schedule during last night's podcast. We took a very early look at some of these non-conference games.

    CF Podcast: 10-13 Edition | Cyclone Fanatic

    I was intrigued to see where some of these non-conference opponents are being picked to finish in their leagues. These are all rankings from this year's Athlon magazine.

    Nov. 17, vs. Drake - Picked 9th in the MVC

    Dec. 1, @ Northern Iowa - Picked 4th in the Missouri Valley.

    Dec. 4, Cal - Picked to finish 6th in the PAC 10. Returns just over 13 ppg from last year's team.

    Dec. 10, Iowa - Picked to finish last in the Big Ten.

    Dec. 30, @ Virginia - The Cavs are picked to finish last in the ACC.

    Jan. 3, Northern Illinois - Picked to finish 5th of 6 teams in their MAC division.

    Re: MBB schedule tidbits

    Where is Creighton picked?

    It is funny that we play a couple games where we have ties to other schools. Creighton with McDermott and Northern Illiniois with Jake Anderson

    A little surpised to Drake so low in the Valley. Phelps has had the best recruiting class in the Valley 2 years running, that should start paying off.

    I wish the Virginia game was at home. With them being ranked last in ACC, that could be a decent game if it was in Hilton Coliseum.

    Phelps can't coach. Not even kinda sorta. Solid if not excellent recruiter, but can't coach at all. Turned the best player in the Valley as a sophmore into almost a non-factor for his Junior and Senior years. Players love him as a person, do not think very much of him as a coach.

    I am excited to see all the new faces on the court this year develop. Maybe even RW will join them.

    Given the rankings, it should be a decent game in Charlottesville.

    Wow I didn't realize those teams were projected so poorly (Virginia doesn't surprise me, I guess. And Iowa).

    This re-cupcakifies an already cupcakish schedule. I'm even more convinced that this team ought to win 11 non-conference games, even with all the inexperience.

    Is this from the real ChrisMWilliams, or the "real" ChrisMWilliams?


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!
