    Coaches pick ISU to finish 8th in conference

    I'm a little surpirsed we are picked this low by the coaches. Hopefully the team uses this as motivation.

    Meh. The only coaches opinion that matters or is even in the know is CFH. The other coaches have no idea what ISU is capable doing this year.

    Re: Coaches pick ISU to finish 8th in conference

    makes sense to me. better than OU and Tech, but not enough to say we're better than KSU/OSU and the consensus top5 (KU, MO, A&M, Bay, TX).

    i think we do much better, but the preseason polls don't bother me.

    Fair enough. Our team is still very unproven. It's up to them to prove the doubters wrong.

    Just win baby win.


    Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
    Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

    Re: Coaches pick ISU to finish 8th in conference

    I didn't realize A&M has been to 6 straight NCAA tourneys. In my mind, they suck at basketball - an impression that remains from my college years at ISU when they did actually suck. They've hit homeruns with their previous two coaching hires - their luck has to run out at some point, right?

    I think what you're saying is true of the media and their predictions, but you're not giving the coaches enough credit. I'm guessing each coach knows the roster of every other team in the league pretty well.

    No problem with it. Just another reason to prove them wrong.

    Easy to say right now

    Re: Coaches pick ISU to finish 8th in conference

    plus there's lots of gamesmanship in the rankings, you can't vote for your own team. so who gave a first place vote to missouri? self? I could see that.

    also, coaches hate scott drew, so despite having the most talent, he gets picked 3rd, which is kind of funny.

    Not really. There are 7 new faces this year that have not played for ISU yet. The only way they'd truely know what ISU was capable of this year is if they were to have been sitting in on practices. I'm pretty sure that's not the case.

    Does it talk out loud, or do you have to shake it like the 8-ball?
