    Re: Sleeper Team

    Cool. All we have to do is play and win games. Most preseason rankings are complete **** half of the time.

    I just hope we don't play like we are sleeping.

    Re: Sleeper Team

    Interesting to see the other sleeper teams on that list.

    ISU got 2 mentions, as did Alabama and Temple.

    Hope this season turns some heads. It's a welcome change to be mentioned positively in preseason; a little buzz is always nice. It will mean nothing if ISU can't at least reach that level. Would be cool to surpass it.

    The analysts who chose ISU as sleep also picked Baylor to win the Big 12 — as did Katz & Gottlieb.

    Baylor will not win the Big 12.

    We are definitely not comparable to Alabama. We have far more skill -- but they are just tough as hell. I hope we are equally good. I love Anthony Grant and the Crimson Tide bball team.

    I would take us being on the level of those two teams. Those are two NCAA tournament teams. Alabama should've been an NCAA tourney team last year IMO.

    Iowa State actually was picked to be the sleeper team 3 times. Hopefully in Mid-January they know who we are.

    You almost have to pick them though. I do tend to agree that they won't but I wouldn't know who to pick in their stead.
