    Athlon CBB Preview - No Respect

    Athlon's CBB Preview cites Korie Lucious as an Impact Transfer - but goes on to talk about how he will be called on to score in his 'first and only season playing in Iowa City'.

    Lol, i swear it just get's worse every year. At least do research on the team that was in the final 32...

    Can't believe they forgot those 2 games he played in Iowa City while at Mich St. so in fact this will be his 3rd and last year playing in Iowa City.

    Re: Athlon CBB Preview - No Respect

    I checked the magazine rack yesterday, assuming CBB mags were due to arrive.

    Athlon had arrived. I checked only two things:

    1. Tournament field. No Iowa State (unless I missed some sort of play-in situation).

    2. Big 12 predicted finish: 8th. (I think Nos. 9 & 10 were TCU & Tech, but I didn't bother to examine it.). Yes, eighth!

    Both are possibilities, I guess.

    In the Big 12 intro page, it said (paraphrasing): "... Cyclones will take a step back, but not much ... after departure of Royce White."

    I'm kinda loving this. A "Royce dynamic" doesn't come along very often, obviously. But I think experts may underestimate Fred's coaching K-knowledge and this team's depth.

    8th!

    For some odd reason 95% of the writers that talk about us never bring up Clyburn. Shows that they do little research and know nothing. How can a guy that averaged 17 ppg and 7 rpg in the Mountain West not get mentioned ever. It just blows my mind. When they do bring up something they talk about Lucious who didn't have overly impressive statistics at Michigan State and was the back up PG. They only know about big names from big programs for some odd reason. Soon everyone will know the name Will Clyburn and we will exceed everyone's expectations.

    3rd --> 8th = "not much of a step back"

    ???

    No respect is our mantra. They'll prove otherwise this season

    These "experts" don't know half as much about Iowa State basketball as we do. I just laugh this stuff off

    Re: Athlon CBB Preview - No Respect

    i expect us to be picked anywhere from 5-8, and i expect the big12 to have 6-8 teams in the tourney. a ton of depth this year, with two really bad teams.
