    New Record right?

    ISU improved by 9 wins in conference over last year. Biggest improvement in one year in Big 12 history correct?

    If so.....Congrats team and staff!

    Re: New Record right?

    ISU now owns the top 2 turnaround seasons in Big 12 history.

    More consistency will be nice. And not the kind we've been accustomed to the last ten years.

    Another record? Baylor still has never won in Ames.

    4 less games against Nebraska and Colorado. That should pretty much balance out the "extra conference games" argument.

    Re: New Record right?

    Would think that should make Hoiberg Big 12 coach of the year?

    Re: New Record right?

    I believe the old record was 6, which means we broke the old record in 16 games anyway (when we already had a 7-game improvement).

    Incredible accomplishment, regardless of the number of overall games.

    Old record was 8, BTW, set by our 2000 team with Tinsley and Fizer.

    Which we had matched in 16 games, so a valid comparison. Thanks for the clarification. Early morning math/memory skills not so good for me.

    IIRC, we shared the old record with someone else (A&M?).

    I thought I saw somewhere that A&M went from an ofer to like a five hundred record.

    aTm went from 0-16 to 8-8 in one year under Billy Gillespie. He won COY that year (for the guys in the COY thread who think Fred can't get it.)

    Re: New Record right?

    Was that the team that wasn't allowed to have non-conference games?
