    at least we are now 1.6 microseconds closer to next season (not to take away from the seriousness of the earthquake)

    Re: Article from Ames Tribune about MBB Next Year

    Not sure I agree the NCAA tournament "should be a minimum goal". That's asking a lot from a group of players who haven't played a single game together and a 2nd year coach. I'd rather set the bar low and exceed expectations, but maybe that's just the Cyclone in me.

    I missed the whole deal with this phrase. I keep seeing it in posts but don't know the story of how it came to be a catch phrase.

    Will someone please clue me in?

    TIA

    Yeah, it's semantics. It's fine to have that as a goal...just not an expectation at this point.

    With all due respect, this type of attitude needs to change, IMO. At least in b-ball, with the talent and depth that we have, Fred, the team and fans should all expect at least a tourney invite, IMO.

    Agree with this and the article. It's time to raise the bar on Cyclone basketball expectations.

    I'm officially in "NCAA or disappointed" mode from now until Fred retires or moves on. I'm not scared to be disappointed. What's the point in having unlofty expectations?

    You really don't have to be that good to be an NCAA tournament team. I expect a bid if there aren't extenuating circumstances.

    Re: Article from Ames Tribune about MBB Next Year

    We're all pretty starved for a winning, NCAA tournament type of team next season. With that being written, this was our first non-losing season since 2005-06. I'm just wondering if it might be a little too much to go from being a complete afterthought to an NCAA team.

    while they certainly haven't played an organized game against a division 1 opponent with anything at stake together, they have indeed played many games together in practice.

    these guys aren't going to be new to each other. they have been teammates for a year now already.

    how long does it take a team to mesh? i would think less then 1 season together, no?

    Good point. It isn't like these are four true FR that are showing up for the first time, in July. These guys should be ready to take some names.
