    07-08 Season

    With a chance to see 2 exhibition games what do you think reasonable expectations for this year should be? I think we will improve everygame and suprise a few teams. I could see 15, 16 maybe 17 wins and a NIT invite.

    IM totally down with thinking this team can flirt with an above .500 record. NIT might be pushing it, but if we stay healthy it is a real possiblity.

    If somehow we pull it off and Lucca can come back I would call us a legit NIT team.

    I'm always drinking the Kool-Aid...I think we are more along the lines of 17-19 wins before the Big 12 Tourney.

    .500 is a good number. Really depends on the guard play though. That can make or break a team

    Or Kansas State. They could very well be ranked, and ranked pretty high, when they come into Hilton one of the last games of the year. That could be a great atmosphere.

    If Lucca is reinstated, we make the Dance, otherwise we need some guys to step up in a big way.

    Re: 07-08 Season

    I can't really make a prediction until I see how our guards handle some physical defenders and a team that presses. I think both of those things could give us some problems.

    Re: 07-08 Season

    A reasonable expectation is improvement over last year.

    Re: 07-08 Season

    I think we will be much better than last year. I believe we have many many more scoring threats at every position. The guard position does scare me a little bit but, I feel a little more confident with Peterson in there.

    Our inexperienced frosh players means we lose a couple early that we shouldn't but, later in the season they develope and we win a couple we're not suppose to.

    I'm going with 17 wins

    Re: 07-08 Season

    I am going to say our season rests on 5 things
    1. Jiri's health, as long as that foot is fully healed.. that will be a big +
    2. Rashon's health, the guy is a leader and a naggin knee injury is somthing that i hope does not bother him to much
    3. If Lucca gets to play, i have yet to see him play, but we need all the help we can get
    4. If Lucca does not play we will need guys to step up even more then they already have to
    5. If every one buys into the system and picks up on it quickly.. seemed like last year we didnt know all the plays for a while..

    If everything goes our way.. i can see anywhere from 16-19 games... im hoping for a upset of Kansas at home.. heck we came close last year why not this year?


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    I dont want to pee in anyone's cheerios.....but this guy have has never even played in a game. I've seen many amazing gym talents that dont pan out in the real game.

    Are you saying improvement in team and skill? Or in wins? I think maybe we can do both.
