    Wonder where it would have been without the 'lost decade'? Stupid Larry and his stupid Natty, and the stupid jerk with the camera, and the stupid internet.

    OK, better now, have a nice Sunday.

    I'm more concerned about our place in the "Last 10 Years" list that comes out in 2022.

    The 70's were a bigger issue than the last 10 years..
    Those teams were beyond horrible..

    If you did the last 40 years ISU moves up about 50 spots..

    That's a little discouraging, but with Fred in place, the future has never looked brighter, IMO.

    Re: ISU in @ 118 best basketball

    I was shocked that ISU was that low in the B12. I guess there have been good years, but there has been some very bad as well.

    Agreed, prior to Orr we made the NCAAs one time, I believe.

    I think we should say "last 30 years" since the 1970s are part of the last 40.

    How the **** does DePaul clock in at #45? Their wins were vacated in half of the seasons that they did anything worthwhile in.

    This list sucks it, big time; it gives waaaay to much weighting to "flash in the pan" teams who were hot for a few years, even if those few years were surrounded by decades of irrelevance (Houston, UTEP, San Francisco, etc.).

    Sounds like what the Clones have done.

    Re: ISU in @ 118 best basketball

    The problem with this list is that Iowa State has only won 2 Conference tournaments while Southern has won 7 in the SWAC

    So Southern is ranked 108 and Iowa State 118th

    I'm pretty sure I don't fully grasp the scoring criteria.

    Just wishing for the glory days of Tinsley and Fizer. Well, actually I'd rather just look forward to this season. Baby steps!

    Re: ISU in @ 118 best basketball

    This list doesn't make sense. IIRC they did this in 2008 and ISU was just outside the top 50. How did we fall 50+ spots in 4 years?
