    Definitely something to keep in mind. ... did ISU get any votes at that point? I don't think so. I realize getting 1 vote vs. zero votes is marginal, just interesting.

    Another thing that probably helped to this point, if any voters paid attention -- beating Drake by 48, and beating a team some projected as a Valley contender in Creighton. Last year, there was a 20-point win over Drake but no other opponent that seemed noteworthy through 6 games.

    Re: Wow...we got a vote in the AP Poll

    Obviously, one vote isn't that big a deal overall.

    It's just a great feeling to see that somebody noticed that things are different around here, when the last 5 years would give anyone reason not to bother noticing ISU.

    I really believe that a lot of the media folks want us back. Exciting things happen when ISU Basketball is good and relevant.


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

    I just don't want to see our fans become like Iowa fans (who think they are headed for the NC game every year even before a game is played).

    I'm very encouraged by what I have seen so far, and especially with who is sitting on the bench right now just waiting to play next year. If Fred and TJ can recruit anyone at all in the future, I think the program could definitely be back.
    I was there and saw a team that does two things:
    1) Will not self-destruct when they get down big.
    2) Plays with swagger, not entitlement.
    Those are the big differences.

    My wishlist for them is still pretty modest though. For me an enormous success would be:
    1)Beat UNI and complete our MVC sweep, so we can claim we'd make the tourney if we played in their conference if Panther fans talk smack about being the best MBB program in the state this year.
    2)Win enough non-conf games that if we get lucky in the Big XII schedule maybe we can sneak our way into the NIT.

    SI had Creighton projected in the field of 64 - not sure if that means winning the Valley or if that's 2nd place. either way, yeah they're decent.

    That is ridiculous.

    We beat Kansas last year, so obviously we could make the tournament in the B12 too, right?....

    It was meant to be a little tongue in cheek.

    That sounds made up, but it's not.
    We probably got his vote for beating Alabama.

    Kansas is one team. We destroyed drake, beat creighton, and reportedly our scrimmage went very well against bradley. Beat uni, and we'd be undefeated against the preseason 3,4,5, and 8 teams in the valley. No Wichita State in there (that, with UNI, would almost cement our claim to a MVC title this year, lol), but its still a strong showing against that conference.
