    Be like this team

    Couldn't help but go back and look at this team. What a different style it is from the recent past (it is hard to remember a different time ), but we can be like this team. Just need Royce, guards to step it up and execute, and get better spacing to run and push it. Not sure what defense we will run, but the goal should be to pressure like this team. Hope it can be sooner than later.

    Ah the good days. Of course I then had to scroll down and check out some of the MSU game. Man if that game goes our way where is this program today?

    Re: Be like this team

    Wow we were picked to finish last in the Big 12 in 2000?!? Thats what the announcer said at the end of the ISU MSU video. I remember the ending of that game so clearly even though it was over 10 years ago. That was a game we should have won

I donít care where you come from, whether itís Texas, Florida, California, or right here in the state of Iowa, I donít care about any of thatÖ But what I did care about is moving forward from that day on, that we were one team." -Paul Rhoads

    Often stated, but not true. We were picked to finish in the middle of the pack.

    A national championship as the team MSU beat didn't put up much of a challenge that year. More than likely ISU would have beat them as well. Had Fizer stayed for his senior year, I'm sure there would be a national championship banner hanging in Hilton today because that team would have been downright unbeatable and ISU would not have lost to Hampton the following season.

    As great as that replay was, ISU does not have a Mel Tinsley on the roster this year, and you saw what a difference he made to that team. DG is a fine PG, but no where near the caliber of Tinsley. Even so, I believe guard play for ISU will be much improved and we'll see many pleasant surprises from them this season despite all the doom and gloom being said about their prospects. Ten to twelve wins this year will be a disappointment IMO. I think anywhere from fourteen to eighteen wins is more likely with the cupcake non-conference schedule ISU will face. I think ISU gets a minimum of eleven wins in the NC schedule. The conference schedule will be much tougher, and I think ISU gets three to five wins there. Still, we will see major steps forward for this program this season.

    I remember being picked between ninth and 11th by most sources... although I'm sure I didn't see an exhaustive list, but many people claim it was consensus last place (and I don't recall any 12th-place predictions, but I could be wrong). I also don't recall anything near middle of the pack.

    Sorry.

    As Nigel said in "This is Spinal Tap": That's nitpicking, isn't it? Nobody expected a season like that ó*experts, fans, possibly even the team members themselves.

    Depended on the publication. We were in fact picked last by at least one. "They have not won with Fizer in his two years at ISU and no change is predicted for this season."-Iowa State 2003-2004 Men's Basketball Media Guide

    Right with you here. Hope we can suprise in Freddy's first year at the helm.

    As for this game that is featured in this thread: ISU-UCLA:

    I remember all the hoopla going into that Sweet 16 game against UCLA....whom, at the time was playing great basketball - they were real hot as of late going into that game -

    As usual, UCLA was getting a ton of press. I just remember their players getting asked at the press conference about their upcoming game against ISU.

    "We're going to teach Iowa State how to play basketball." (I can't remember who specifically said it, but I know that it was said.)

    80-56 Cyclones in a BLOWOUT. Good game though Bruins. Good game. Thanks for playing.

    After watching some of that, some things that really stand out:

    Our spacing on Offense was GREAT!
    Tinsley's handle was the BEST ISU has ever had.
    Everyone on our Team rebounded the ball.

    Re: Be like this team

    NIT is probably best case scenario, but it is hard not to get excited about ISU basketball again.
    Walking though the cold from the parking lot while listening to the pregame, only to arrive to a warm and rocking Hilton, and then watching some intense basketball...nothing beats that imo.
    I really like what Fred is doing.
