    Mens BBall Magazines

    I went to Wal-Mart Last night and went to see if they had the Mags for this year.. well as i looked through them, it seemed like ever single one forgot we had Wesley.. as he was not part of any all big 12 mention.. and they also must have forgot that the last time we were picked to finish last in the big 12..well we won it.. Every single Mag i looked at picked us last.. but that really doesnt bother me.. but what bugs the crap out of me.. as i read the Sporting News.. somthing popped out.. it read like this

    Craig Brackins the highest touted recruit for the HAWKEYES since Marcus Fizer.
    It might not be 100% on the quote.. but thats close from what i remember... But I HATE it when people call us the Hawks..

    Anyway.. i just find it fun to look at what the "experts" think will happen this year


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Did they mention that Taylor should give us a much needed boost? ;-)

    Do not worry about Taylor mention when you can say Dodie Dunson will be good for 15.0, since his dylexsia was not a problem.

    Re: Mens BBall Magazines

    I checked out the Athlon mag yesterday, and their outlook for us was pretty grim. They had us last in the conference. They seemed to have most of the information on us correct, though.

    Not to threadjack, but I always compare what the mags say about us to what they say about our neighbors to the east. They picked them above NW, and as I looked at their returning cast, I thought there is no way they aren't terrible. They return something like 27 ppg on offense, and the leading returner is Freeman at 7.5 ppg. They will rely heavily on Seth Gorney, which blows my mind.

    Sorry for the threadjack...back to original programming.
