    Missouri looks scary good so far

    I thought that with a new coach who hasn't shown he can really win that they might struggle a little bit but they are blowing quality teams out of the water. Notre Dame by something like 30 points and California by 40. That is ridiculous! It is a good thing that ISU has some time to improve before they play them.

    Love their defense.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    English and Denmon are on the Jess Settle eligibility schedule. I swear they've been there 6 years.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    It's not hard to look scary good when you shoot 55-60%. That's the biggest difference from last year...they've abandoned the "Fastest 40 Minutes" of pressing like crazy (and giving up a lot of easy baskets on D) and focused on disruption in the half court. Mike Anderson emphasized pace and speed over shot selection, and it showed. Everybody in the conference knew if you slowed Missouri down, you could beat them.

    This year, Haith has them taking better shots, and valuing every possession. Plus, they're not worn out by halftime. I'd like to see how they match up against a team with a good PG and some inside depth. But I prefer this year's style to last year's.

    I'm really sad that Mizzou is leaving the conference... only because I enjoy how much I dislike them.

    But as much as I want to see them fail, they are playing really good basketball, really early in the season. Hope we can catch up to them.

    Re: Missouri looks scary good so far

    California was ranked? Someone explain to me how a team is ranked after beating UC-Irvine, George Washington, Austin Peay, and Georgia and having the following statistical ranks...

    Points per game: 70.6 ranking 156th in the nation
    Rebounds per game: 38.2 ranking 111th in the nation
    Assists per game: 14.6 ranking 88th in the nation
    Field goal percentage: 46.5% ranking 99th in the nation

    California... like most Pac-12 schools historically in basketball is a joke. That team deserved to be ranked about as much as Mississippi Valley State does. Not at all.

    Your ranking leaders so far this season:

    PPG: 1) NC-Ashville; 2) Iona; 3) UNC
    RPG: 1) Oklahoma; 2) UT-Arlington; 3) Qunnipiac
    APG: 1) UNC; 2) Iona; 3) UNLV
    FG%: 1) TTech; 2) Indiana; 3) Campbell

    Verdict: early season stat rankings are next to meaningless.

    I won't argue that the Pac-12 is weak this year ("historically" might be a stretch, though) since they only have one ranked conference team. But the Big 12 only has two teams ranked right now that will still be in the conference next year (KU and Baylor).

    And the "basketball-poor" SEC? They have 5 teams ranked right now (7 if you added TAMU and MU). Everything is cyclical -- while the Big 12 was one of the strongest conferences for the past couple of years (along with the Big East), now the SEC and ACC are coming back.

    I believe Blum said they weren't going to be good this year....
