    ESPN Preseason Rankings...

    Has ISU tabbed at #90.
    Of note:
    Iowa #50
    UNI #91

    I think they may have missed the mark on ISU.

    Either ESPN missed the mark or ALL of us have. I think we will surprise people.

    Re: ESPN Preseason Rankings...

    They drastically missed the mark. I am traditionally as realist as they come. I would be a bit surprised if they missed the NCAA this year. Do I expect them in the Top 50 in the preseason? Not necessarily. But #90????????

    I wanted someone else to say it. Not me. I think we were all thinking it, though.

    Re: ESPN Preseason Rankings...

    They may or may not have missed the mark on Iowa State. Too many unknowns with the Cyclones at this point. But ranking Iowa at #50 is just asinine.

    Re: ESPN Preseason Rankings...

    How many Big Ten teams are ahead of Iowa? ESPN must think that the Big Ten is loaded this year...

    So we are a tourney team that is worse than a non-tourney team....I'm confused.

    Re: ESPN Preseason Rankings...

    Maybe they got us and Iowa mixed up?.... I mean, I guess I can see why we could be ranked 90th but there is no way Iowa is the 50th best team in the nation. No way.

    We may surprise people this year but I wouldn't set expectations as a tourney team without a single game being played.

    I think they meant 50th in the Big 10.

    Some other place had us in the tournament, I'm not expecting it, just saying that ESPN has us ranked 90 and another site has us in the tourney.
