    Feelings about rest of season?

    Now, with these 2 early wins in the big 12 slate. I was just wondering how everyone was feeling for the rest of the big 12 schedule, tourney. Maybe postseason tourney?
    Other than that, 2 early impressive wins thus far.

    Cautiously optimistic. I want to see continued improvement that's all. No expectations other than that.

    Re: Feelings about rest of season?

    I won't predict a tourney appearance until we beat a quality opponent. If we win Wednesday, I think the post season is possible. If we beat Kansas then NCAA's here we come!


    Enjoy.

    That's pretty much how I feel. There are no easy games left, so the team can't get too cocky.

    Ask this question in early February. Two wins is nice, but these weren't tourney teams by any stretch.

    Re: Feelings about rest of season?

    I'm happy with how we've played in the conference games so far. But we haven't run into any of the quality teams yet. We did our part to make A&M look bad, but they couldn't beat Ames High with the way they played today. Texas was without their best player for most of the second half (and was in the middle of a big run when he went out) and had mostly freshmen playing after that.

    I'm hoping for good things and I think we have reason for optimism. But we'll know a lot more after the next two games.

    Re: Feelings about rest of season?

    I'm not convinced this team will make a post season appearance just yet but its really nice to see us winning the "winnable" games. UT and A&M are nothing special but these are the types of games you just have to win, you have to think this team feels like they can play with anyone in the conference.

    We do get TAMU at home & TTU twice yet.

    I feel a lot more confident than I did a week ago.

    It isn't just the 2-0 start which is nice in itself; I had moderate expectations in preseason that looked too optimistic after non-conference, and still predicted opening at 0-2.

    I've watched two games vs. teams that weren't either mid-majors or sub-NIT: Michigan and A&M. This was night-and-day compared to the U-M game (although I'm pretty sure Michigan is much better than ATM).

    Let's pretend UT and A&M underperform this season, and end up in the lower division. I haven't seen Iowa State close out a winnable home game and follow it with a beat-down on the road during Big 12 play in the same week for a long time.

    In the short-term, that's refreshing. I won't extrapolate beyond that (although it's human nature to do so).

    .500 would put us at 19-12 going into the Big 12 tourney. I don't think that gets us in. We need 21+.

    I feel like they are going to be really competitive in the big games: Texas, KU, Baylor, Mizzou. But they will play really poorly in the less important games: OU, TTU.

    Re: Feelings about rest of season?

    There are a lot of winnable games. The last two games have shown a lot of promise. We'll see though.
