    Let the hype begin...

    For what could be one of the most anticipated men's basketball seasons in Iowa State history. I want to thank this year's team and especially the seniors for their efforts...especially Jake Anderson for his fight and emotion today...but for all of their hard work this year in placing a foundation for next season and years after to grow upon.

    I hope next year is even 75% as good of some of the expectations I've seen around here, because if so, it will be a special one. NCAA Tournament is absolutely the goal, and I hope we can achieve it. Go Cyclones!

    Ehhhh...I will not be getting my expectations up until we show we can win in B12 play and can at least challenge for even a .500 league record.

    Re: Let the hype begin...

    So much will depend on the schedule, but I think a 20-win season is a good goal, as fans.

    Lower than 20 will be a disappointment, more will be gravy.

    What's wrong with hype? It's better than dragging around all summer knowing our team is going to be total crap.

    Exactly. Other people are just letting the culture of losing get to them.

    Teams in the Big 12 I think we are better than. TTech, OU, Baylor, KSU, maybe OSU, Maybe even KU (if they lose Robinson, the Morris twins, Selby).

    Chris Allen and Royce White are not role players. McGee will be a starter so the jury is still out. The rest of the guys we are bringing in will give us depth, which we had zero of this year.

    There is absolutely no way we win only 3 extra games next year.

    Even if we only win 3 more games next year, the past 5 years have set the bar so low, that that'd be a good season by those standards.

    Sorry, but.....

    Let me first say that I am excited about Mayor and think that he will do great things as the head of our program. Unfortunately I had the displeasure of sitting next to a group of Nebraska fans in the Power and Light District today AFTER they were finally ousted from Big XII play for sure, but in their classy manner they continued to talk crap all of the way through our game, so that has me in a foul mood.

    As much as this team did this year with very little in terms of resources....me must have to learn to close games. I realized that we have a tired bunch of boys due to lack of depth, but what concerns me is the mental aspect of closing out a game. It does a number on most 20-year olds mind to lose like that time and time again. I personally don't care much about how awesome our individual players are next year, but the culture has to change, we must close, the league is too tough to play for 36 minutes and then be proud because you played hard. At the end of the day, and at the end of this season, the W's and L's are the only thing that will be in the books.

    Considering how tough the Big XII might be next year, 19-13 could get us in the tournament.

    Re: Let the hype begin...

    I don't see the problem with expectations. It's sure a lot more fun that way. If I'm wrong, I'm wrong. That happens.

    I honestly expect to see the tournament next year. I'll definitely be thinking that way during my 4-day couch vacation next week.


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