    Preseason Hype

    Does our preseason hype = preseason ranking?

    If so what ranking

    No. No they don't. Years of losing mean no ranking.

    We can earn our way in if things go right.


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

    Re: Preseason Hype

    Is there hype outside the program or the fanbase? I mean i know broadcasters talk about it every know and then, but does anyone in the national media think we are going to be good next year? I am not trying to be condescending, just asking? I know Andy Katz loves us.

    Then again we got votes this year, so I mean anything is possible

    Nope. We will have to earn it on the court. We have a stodgy record the past five years. With new old players, wee will be an unknown. The Big 12 might pick us to finish last again. We are ISU.

    Re: Preseason Hype

    I think we get some press but mainly as an unknown, which is rightfully so. Can Freddy get these transfers, some proven and some unproven, to buy into his system and play together on both ends?

    If so, it could be a fun year.

    Sorry Hell of a first post, I know. Long time reader tho. I have just heard Dickie V and a couple of the ESPN announcers say stuff along the lines of "Don't worry cyclone fans, help is on the way" and these are the guys who vote in these polls.

    I hope Dicke V becomes blind and mute.

    Re: Preseason Hype

    I wouldn't be suprised if we got a vote or 2 at the beginning of the year, but we are definitely going to have to prove we belong in the Top 25.

    I'm gonna hold you to this. I expect pictures if it happens.


    Edit: And even if we are good enough, no way we deserve it yet.

    Re: Preseason Hype

    Whatever chance we had at Preseason Top 25 was ruined by the way our season has gone downhill. Had we won 7/8 conference games and made an NIT run, I think the hype could have been there to get us some votes.
