    Excited!

    Is anyone else, regardless of how the season may or may not turn out, just generally excited for the Northern Arizona Friday night?

    Re: Excited!

    I've been excited for college basketball since the moment it ended last year.

    Church is almost in session.

    Friday will be a great time in Hilton. If you can't make it, you can still catch UNI/Syracuse, which should be an interesting game.

    Re: Excited!

    I'm not reading too much into that exhibition game, we obviously had much better talent than they did and more athleticism. Once we play a few decent D1 opponents we'll be able to get more out of what we are trying to do. I think they are going to try and run more when they can but at times I think we are going to be at a size disadvantage against teams with good post players. Again, need to see our guys up against some more comparable talent to get a better read on how we will be.

    Very excited...but tapering my expectations. So many unknowns but I'm stoked to have a fresh positive start.

    Re: Excited!

    It will be like the Orr years. We will win some big and lose some big. Especially on the road.

    How could you not be excited when you have an undefeated basketball team?

    Re: Excited!

    I'm ALWAYS excited for Cyclone basketball to start up regardless of how bad/good we are supposed to be. College basketball is by far my favorite sport, best 5 months of the year.

    Re: Excited!

    I think this year will be a lot like the McDermott years; frustration won't hit until we get to conference play and start losing a lot.

    It will be nowhere close to Mcdermott era. Win or lose this team is going to be fun to watch. McDermotts team was boring to watch even when we won.

    Re: Excited!

    Anyone know the status of the video board? I always like seeing what they come up with for entrance videos but obviously I'll have to wait until the video board is fixed.

    Re: Excited!

    This season will be fun. It will probably not be a great season in the win/loss column, but it will always be remembered as a great season because we no longer have to watch another year of terrible Mcdermott ball. The last 4 years have been like "Groundhog Day" for the ISU MBB team.

    Also will be exciting to see how the freshman progress, as they should get a lot of time. Would love to see Garrett end his career on a high note... we have to give this guy some props for sticking with the Clones for 4 years while teammate after teammate transferred.
