    Iowa passes ISU in WBB rankings

    http://sports.espn.go.com/ncw/news/story?id=5863138

    Iowa 18
    ISU 19

    Iowa may be good, but they haven't played anyone yet. Their next three games, @UNC, KSU, and ISU should be telling though.

    Frankly, I think our wins against TCU and Virginia should have moved us up.

    It does seem the coaches give ISU more respect than the AP though, which to me is more important. Though rankings this early in the season don't matter much.

    I thought we would move up after those 2 wins. The loss wasn't a bad loss.

    Thanks twistedredbird. I also notice Texas leapfrogged us from #21 to #17 (apparently by virtue of their actually-NOT-a-totally-embarrassing-blow-out loss to Stanford). I'm hoping Iowa's stay above us in the rankings is short-lived and suspect they will lose their next three games. The coaches poll almost always rates us higher than AP because the coaches understand and respect Coach Fen, whereas AP is dominated by writers in bigger media markets. I think rankings this early in the season can set up expectations for conference play, and it looks like 7 or 8 Big 12 schools are either ranked or receiving votes.

    Let Iowa be ranked ahead of us so it looks better when we beat them

    Our girls are better looking,

    Our coach is better looking,

    I predict we will be rated higher in the end.

    Re: Iowa passes ISU in WBB rankings

    Here's the Top 25 RPI, obviously doesn't mean much now because UConn is #23 and Baylor and Tennessee are all ranked below ISU at #14. But fun to watch the season progress nonetheless.... BTW Virginia is #40 RPI, TCU is #109, Drake #103, Michigan #100, and UNI is #70. Iowa is #6

    Re: Iowa passes ISU in WBB rankings

    Beat Iowa up and it will take care of this ranking issue. I know sometimes it's not classy but if we can beat Iowa very bad, we can show that we're the only real program in the state.

    Re: Iowa passes ISU in WBB rankings

    Sorry that last post was long and confusing -- didn't copy over right from the RPI table. You can see the actual page at this link, which details ISU's complete season schedule and predicts us to finish the year 19-11 with a 7-9 record in Big 12 play: RealTimeRPI.com Iowa St. Cyclones Women's College Basketball Rating Percentage Index (RPI) Ratings - A leading sports ratings and resources community on the Internet

    Of course we all know Coach Fen's teams always surpass expectations and computer rankings in performance and execution, especially late in the season.... Nonetheless I thought I'd share this....

    While our wins against UVA and TCU were nice, neither team is that great. UVA's best win is TCU, and TCU's best win is SMU. I was at both games, and UVA has potential, but until that potential is coached properly, they are average at best. The only reason TCU stayed in the game was because they were bombing up threes and making them. Against WVU, they were 2-11 from 3-pt land, and hit 12 against us.

    Re: Iowa passes ISU in WBB rankings

    Yes, the rankings don't mean much. We'll find out who should be ranked higher on December 9. As in past years at Carver-Hawkeye, the crowd will make it seem like a home game for us.

    Is this the best Iowa squad in a long time? The recruit class looks like they are headed up. Looks like we have some major competition just down the road.

    Re: Iowa passes ISU in WBB rankings

    I'm not going to overlook Iowa. The comments I made in my summary were dismissed by many. Its one thing to just not like the Hawks, its another to realize that they potentially have a very good team (and that's all I can say about ISU at this point as well). I know our players won't be dismissing them (fortunately) because if they have the attitude many here have...we'll get our butts kicked.

    I doubt the BF or his players are dismissing them - Iowa pounded ISU by 20 two years ago in Iowa City, and the game wasn't even that close.
    Kinda think this game is circled...

    I was at that game. I can't believe it was only a 20-point loss -- it felt much worse. That ISU team had a lot of stuff to figure out, and like all BF ISU teams they definitely did figure it out as the season went along.

    Unfortunately, I won't be able to go to the game @ Iowa this year. I will be in Ames for the FL A&M, PV A&M, and Chicago State games, though.
