    ISU MBB will make the Sweet 16 in 2012

    This season is just a small preview of the Feature Film that is going start next November 2011.

    Make sure to get a good seat!

    I hope it's not a small preview. Close losses, while suspenseful (maybe this movie is Suspense?), are not something I'd be looking forward to seeing.

    Maybe this is just the first movie in a series? Pt. 2 can be where we break through and win all the close games we lost the year before?

    I doubt that they even make the NCAA tourney.

    Re: ISU MBB will make the Sweet 16 in 2012

    Why do basketball fans qualify how good a team is for the next year based on projected tournament advancement? That is a two weekend tournament basically, what about the prior 4 months? What about going on the road in conference and beating teams that know you well? In my opinion that is a better measurement of how good a season is than tournament advancement. Tournaments are funny, one and done. Fact is, it is not always the better team or the team that has a better season that advances. Kansas was not a "Sweet 16 team" last year. Wouldn't you have loved to have their season last year? Sure, it is fun to advance. But how about this, do you guys think our team next year can finish in top 4 in the conference?

    that's awesome, who are they going to beat in the first 2 rounds?
    If you know the scores that would be very helpful.

    Maybe we should just hope for the NIT next year........ work up with baby steps.
    Plus that way when it doesn't happen you only have to fall down a few steps instead of jumping off a bridge.

    I'll take it a step further and say that I doubt they even make the NIT. What we've learned is that this program has been instilled with a culture of losing, and its going to take more than just a couple of years to break that. That and the fact that we still won't have a dominant big man to plug up the lane next year.

    A guy who has never stepped onto the court at Hilton Coliseum. I stopped buying the "wait till next year when we get (random transferred player) eligible" a few years ago. Until he shows that he can dominate the middle and can do it at the Big 12 level, I don't buy into the hype.

    This team will need a few things next year to have any hope for success.

    -Attitude and toughness. Lacking since Blalock/Stinson played in the backcourt

    -Solid post play. Lacking since Fizer. Homan was great at defensive end, but he wasn't really a post on offense

    -Point guard play. I don't think people realize the importance of Diante Garrett. I think they will next year.

    They might have these next year. But, nobody knows at this point.
