    KUsports.com - KU tops Big 12 preseason men's hoops poll

    Do you really think we'll be that far back?

    well lets see... NO...

    wish they would have picked us last tho..
    last time they did that..

    we won the big 12..


    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."

    Re: ISU predicted to finish 11th in Big XII

    I see us finishing somewhere in that 7th-10th range. Too many new additions and lack of backcourt depth. I think we win a game or two more than last year because we should do well in the nonconference record wise, but we have our hands full in the Big 12.

    Re: ISU predicted to finish 11th in Big XII

    Way I see it, we are almost a complete unknown this preseason. They don't have much choice but to pick us last nor near last.

    Agreed and they know we lost Taylor, who on paper was either our best player or easily second best. I'd have a hard time predicting us much better if I was in charge of doing so. I think we are better than Nebraska and Colorado, but outside of that who knows. We could be better than Ok State, Baylor, and maybe OU. There's a lot of unknown about the Big 12 this year.

    All I know, is that we will be better when we play Kansas. I >almost< like watching jayhawkfan as much as I like seeing hawkfan getting crushed.

    Shriek "rotten jock, jayhawk!" in my ear for 3 hours continuously, will you?!

    Re: ISU predicted to finish 11th in Big XII

    I think the pre-season stuff is accurate. We have a lot of unknowns, especially in our backcourt, I expect us to be very competitive and fun to watch just like last season.


    Go Cyclones!!

    Pre-season polls mean absolutely NOTHING, just a chance to sell magazines and internet subsciptions

    Re: ISU predicted to finish 11th in Big XII

    Yeah, in no way do I see us finishing 11th in the Big 12 this year... I think we could definitely be middle of the pack. Sure, we lost some proven production in Taylor, and we're real young, but the guys we have are certainly talented.

    We did much better than predicted last year and I expect the same will happen this year.
