    Beat me to it, I was gonna say, good article but another case of them not really having a clue who we are or how to research before writing.

    Re: ESPN Article

    Its easy for them to pick us as a sleeper because all of the quality writers already did it months ago.

    Good synopsis other than the Godfrey error, let's hope this team can live up to the billing.


    Go Cyclones!!

    I didn't catch a Godfrey reference (but I read quickly) has it been edited already?

    Re: ESPN Article

    they edited it already.

    i like eamonn brennan. he posts several blog updates per day, year round, on college hoops. he's bound to make a few mistakes from time to time, more sloppy editing than his fault.

    i've said this before, but we've been picked as a sleeper so many times now, we're no longer a sleeper.

    If you listen to the audio they screw up there and say that Hoiberg took over a few years ago.

    Re: ESPN Article

    This summer, one Des Moines Register columnist quoted an Iowa State fan who said that White -- who averaged the first triple-double in Ames summer league history this year -- would go down as the best player in Cyclones history.
    Alright, who was it?

    So, we're a snoozer?

    I kind of prefer it if we were labeled a DEFCON 1 WE WILL DESTROY YOUR CIRCADIAN RHYTHM team.

    Love these 2 lines from that article, "Ames is starting to feel like the land of misfit toys. But that doesn't mean those toys can't play."
    Thats the most accurate description yet!

    Re: ESPN Article

    1. someone thinks royce white is already the best player in isu bball history
    2. mark hanson used that comment from ONE fan to write a column
    3. 3-5 national bball bloggers linked it in their blogs
    4. now its being mentioned AGAIN by same bloggers.

    bet that one fan never intended to make national news still several months later!
