    Re: Cbssportsline ISU MBB prediction

    I don't know what to think of that article. He has us at 10th? The talent we have this year will blossom and jive that I think we could finish in the middle of the Big XII. Any thoughts?

    Re: Cbssportsline ISU MBB prediction

    I am not surprised by the predictions of us finishing 10th. We do have a lot of talent, but for the most part it is really unknown how our backcourt will play. We have some great bigs down low, but you have to have a backcourt in the Big 12 (or anywhere I guess)

    Re: Cbssportsline ISU MBB prediction

    I agree with cys_av8r...given the state of our backcourt you can't expect the "experts" to predict that we'll end up anywhere higher than 9th or 10th. I mean, considering even we as avid fans don't know who's going to be getting the majority of the playing time at the point and off-guard this season, columnists at ESPN and CBSsportsline are just going to assume we'll have a sub-par backcourt and throw us to the bottom of the Big XII without another thought. Hopefully our young guys will make them look silly once we get to Big XII play!

    Re: Cbssportsline ISU MBB prediction

    I hate being a bottom feeder the last 5 years in Basketball. We have never recovered since Eustacy's issues. We can't catch a break either. This team could have been pretty good with Staiger and Taylor aboard. I think we are a Sophmore Buckely, Junior Garrett away from having a really good team.
    These articles do nothing but **** me off. Money helps, but is not as big of deal when you are dealing with Basketball IMO.

    Re: Cbssportsline ISU MBB prediction

    Although it is fun to see us at the top of predictions, pretty much since the "picked last, finished first year" I don't think we should worry too much. Not saying we will finish first, just that they don't really know all that.

    Re: Cbssportsline ISU MBB prediction

    Based on what we have coming back in the guard court, it would be difficult for an outsider to expect anything better than a 10-12 finish in the Big XII. Personally, I am okay with this. The lesser expectations from the national media the better at this point. The kids can go play and prove them all wrong in the end.

    For anyone that's interested in yet another MBB preview, here's a link to the Athlon preview off of SI.com. There's not a whole lot of insight, but it gives a decent synopsis of our situation heading in to the season.

    Re: Cbssportsline ISU MBB prediction

    don't mind being overlooked- but I know we won't finish that low (barring major injuries or more unjust NCAA penalties).

    I hope Wesley breaks into that 2nd team all-conf list- made mostly of KU, A&M, Tx, and Kst players. Anyone's thoughts on that?

    Personally, I think it'd take a finish at least in the middle of the pack (with him carrying us there) and some stellar stats from Wes for the powers that be to put him above the Bill Walker's and Darrell Arthur's of the conference. That said, I believe he's definitely capable of it, especially if he's improved his ball-handling as much as it sounds like he has...

    Re: Cbssportsline ISU MBB prediction

    Gary Parrish is A FOOL!!!!

    At least try to get a copy of each schools the Media Guide before trying to write a story that could be published. I don't know how some sportswriters (using the term sportswriter loosely) can pull a check.

    Does anyone remember Iowa State's Pre-Season Big XII rank the first year we got Jamal Tinsley...12th. Marcus Fizer and Jamal Tinsley and we were ranked 12th???

    It might be a year where the publishers of the pre-season basketball magazines don't get a nickel outta me.

    I think it's time some people on this board got over their Taylor fixation. What more needs to be said? GMac is building a team. Team basketball produces winners. (See Butler and national COY last year) Taylor was not a team player. I predict Staiger will be back by Christmas. Play Ball!

    Re: Cbssportsline ISU MBB prediction

    Here was my reponse to Gary


    Gary,
    By not mentioning the would be big 12 freshman of the year sans Durant in Wesley Johnson, you have completely proven you did a half @$$ed job researching Iowa State's team. Wesley comes into the Big12 with the most double doubles from last year. I will have the last laugh after this season and you will be sent a lot of emails proving how much of an idiot you are.

    I predict anywhere from 6th to 8th place with a chance for the NIT.
