    ISU working on best turnaround in B12 history

    I think I heard they're 1/2 game behind one of Gillispie's A&M teams. How about that!

    I think so. Mitch Holtus mentioned this. He's calling tonight's game. I bet he says something during the broadcast.

    Just to clarify, how are they defining biggest turnaround? Increase in wins? How would you be behind a half game on that?

    Win/loss differential. I would guess he's looking at A&M over their full 16 game conference schedule. This is game 15 for us. Maybe he's saying if we win tonight.

    Re: ISU working on best turnaround in B12 history

    A&M went winless and than Gillispie led them to 8 wins the next year. So from 0-16 to 8-8

    We need 11 wins to match the W/L difference

    Re: ISU working on best turnaround in B12 history

    I would not be surprised if we also hold the record the other way round- biggest drop off from previous year?

    Re: ISU working on best turnaround in B12 history

    At this point in the season, Frank Haith will be coy in the Big 12. Ironically, Fred has done a better job in my view since he evaluated available talent and then went out and brought in what would make a competitve team mix with transfers. Frank, on the other hand, is playing a primarily all senior line-up assembled by Mike Anderson. Granted he has done a very good on floor coaching job with those players but Fred has done a better all around job of resurrecting a program.

    Re: ISU working on best turnaround in B12 history

    To be fair, A&M went from 0-16 (.000) to 8-8 (.500) in a sixteen game conference schedule. We have two extra opportunities for wins this season.

    To beat their win % increase, we would need to finish 13-5 in conference play (3-13 is .188 win %, 13-5 is .722, increase of .534). So just win these next four and we've got it, no big deal.

    I just giggle at Giggles (former KXNO loudmouth) . . .for ridiculing JP's hiring of Fred . . but then again, Perrault missed a lot of predictions about ISU (remember his breathless anticipation of ISU going to the Mountain West).

    WAY TO GO GIGGLES!

    ISU actually set the record with an 8-game improvement. A&M tied it.
