    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    I don't see anything not correct from a national point of view. We say the same thing about other mid to lower level teams from other conferences.

    So, Tulsa should be a close game?

    I liked this from the Indiana write up:

    New Coach Kevin Wilson began the year by rocking some weird quotes upon the mic at Big Ten media day, including this gem “we’re ready to take this ship and get this thing exploded.”

    Seems actually a pretty fair assessment boys. Hate to say it.

    Ironically, I ranked the Sports Bank #73 in crappy, irrelevant, dime-a-dozen sports blog sites.

    Fair assessment, but I would still put us at 50 right now. Some of those teams in front of us would not beat us.

    Reliable source or not, it's probably within range of expectation.

    We all have to realize, being pegged at No. 60 in preseason is quasi-progress. ISU has been projected as mid-70s to upper-80s in I-A for much of the past decade. (Prior to that, I can't recall).

    I think we could go 12-5 against that lineup.

    You realize they ranked those teams lower than ISU right? All in all it wasn't an unfair assessment.
