    FEARLESS PREDICTIONS: ISU's 2010-11 MBB Picks

    Soooo hard to pick wins and losses right now with this team. But this is fun for everybody to do. Here are my fearless predictions on the 2010-11 Iowa State men's basketball season.

    Northern Arizona - W (very close game)
    Alabama State - W
    Drake - W
    Creighton - W (CU w/o one of their top players. ISU plays with more emotion and gets the close victory)
    Kennesaw State - W
    Montana State - W
    @ Northern Iowa - L (But closer than most think)
    California - W
    SE Missouri State - W
    @ Iowa - L
    Texas Southern - W
    Dartmouth - W
    Chicago State - W
    @ Virginia - L
    Northern Illinois - W

    Non-Conference Record - 12-3

    @ Nebraska - L
    Kansas - L
    Baylor - L
    @ Oklahoma State - L
    @ Missouri - L
    Texas Tech - W
    Oklahoma - W
    @ Colorado - L
    Kansas State - L
    @ Kansas - L
    @ Texas A&M - L
    Missouri - L
    @ Texas - L
    Nebraska - W
    Colorado - L
    @ Kansas State - L

    Conference Record - 3-13 Overall - 15-16

    Before I went and started going game-by-game, I had 10 or 11 wins in mind for the non-con. But I like that matchup with Cal as they lost all of their guards from last year. I love ISU's backcourt in that game so that was the extra win I cam up with. Don't let the Virginia game fool you either. They are down this year. Again, it comes down to ISU's experienced backcourt. That will keep the Clones in a lot of these games and give them a shot to win at the end.

    Big 12 play is going to be rough this year for Iowa State. I think that we all know that.

    There is my shot in the dark. What do you all think?

    I think you are nuts in thinking we will lose to Iowa. The rest is probably pretty spot on.

    Why? I have Iowa penciled in as a loss. It's a road game.

    Re: FEARLESS PREDICTIONS: ISU's 2010-11 MBB Picks

    I think we beat Iowa.
    I'd also like to see us win @Nebraska for the conf opener.
    And is Colorado supposed to be good this year? I see us winning the one at home on senior day.

    We won't lose to Iowa. I think we beat UNI too. I dont think they will keep up with us in the up-tempo.

    Wow. If us going 3-13 in B12 play is your fearless prediction, I'd hate to see what your conservative predictions are.

    It's called defense. Don't let the up tempo fool you. Smart teams can slow you down very quickly. It's all about not letting them.

    Iowa does have experience at almost every position. I think we'll struggle defending Cole on the inside.

    I have Colorado pegged as an NCAA Tournament time. Brent Blum and many others think that I am crazy. Alec Burks and Cory Higgins make up one of the best backcourts in the Big 12. Hopefully I am wrong.

    I really think we should beat Iowa, but who knows? I think we squeak out 4-5 in conference though...I hope. :)

    Re: FEARLESS PREDICTIONS: ISU's 2010-11 MBB Picks

    Looks fairly realistic.

    A little more confident for non-conf than I was, a little less so in Big 12.

    I'm 50-50 on Iowa, and maybe Cal (I had both as L's). And I think we'll split w/ CU. I don't project them getting a tournament bid, although quite a few experts do.

    So it looks like around the @Missouri game (our 5th straight conference loss), the doomsday crowd will be calling for Hoiberg's head?

    I hope you are wrong, Chris, but I don't think you are.

    For some reason, I doubt a 17-2 home record is in play.
