    That's actually the highest I've seen ISU ranked so far. Can't wait for the season to start so that, like the football predictions, they can prove everyone wrong.

    There doesn't appear to be any team in the conference that stands out. KU and Texas lost their nucleus. I guess you could say MU, but they obviously have a new coach. Who knows how that will shake out. OSU will be pretty good. I think we have as good a chance as anyone to finish at or near the top.

    Lindy's picked us ninth last week.

    Big 12 is tough to pick this year. I can't see us worse than sixth, but they gotta play the games. I could see 10 pts making a 3 position difference in rankings for a few teams at the end of conference play.

    Looks like a regional cover for Iowa/Minnesota and they really struggled to find a returning Iowa player worthy of representing.

    currently ISU has 20000 to 1 odds to win national title.... worth $100. Cant wait for odds to win Big 12, i think they have a shot.

    Re: Athlon picks ISU 7th in B12

    I'm terribly giddy for basketball to start. For the first time in a long time we're going into a gun fight with a gun instead of a plastic knife. I was excited for the Gilstrap/Brackins team but much more excited for this team.

    7th is a fair pick for now. ISU has to prove it on the court.

    Re: Athlon picks ISU 7th in B12

    With the team we have, we should finish higher in the league. Anything less would be a diasappointment.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    Where can a person go to put some money on lines like these? I wouldn't put down $100, but maybe $10.

    Re: Athlon picks ISU 7th in B12

    I personally wouldn't even touch the odds for national championship, now the Big 12 conference odds would be something that would perk my interest.

    The Big 12 is definitely up in the air given teams situations with returning players or lack thereof, which should give us a very exciting year of basketball.
