    I know this is digging in the past but where do you think they would've put us if Royce was still here?

    Just curious if they would actually take a look at ISU...

    8th and 6th seem really low to me.

    I think these writers see that ISU lost its top 3 scorers including Royce, and they just are not sure how the returning players, freshmen, and transfers will mesh.......again.

    outside of iowa state fans, not many people realize how good korie and will are. Not many people give those players much respect outside of cyclone country

    You mean a sophomore PG didn't start in front of Kalin Lucas, and didn't show great maturity or have the best shooting %? I'm sure in the two years since, he hasn't matured, or improved his basketball skills. We're sunk.

    He also didn't sink this clutch 3 to help his team advance in the NCAA Tournament.

    Yeah, I can live with the prediction of a 6th place finish. The 8th place finish, though, I think the guy wasn't paying attention.

    Re: ***Men's Basketball Magazine Predictions***

    After comparing this upcoming years team compared to last years team I think we will be a much better team this year. Here is why:

    -A true PG with experience(Lucious) and a true PG backup with experience(Bubu) compared to one true PG last season.
    -A true SF in Clyburn compared to no true SF last year.
    -Being 2-3 deep at every position compared to last year having one true experienced PG, way too many SGs, and no true SF.
    -6 returning players that played significant minutes last year compared to 3 returning players that played significant minutes in the 2010-11 season.
    -Having 5 seniors(4 being RS Seniors) compared to 2 RS Seniors last year.
    -A better defensive team adding Clyburn and Lucious to replace not the best defenders in Scott, Allen, and Royce.
    -4 freshmen(added depth) compared to 2 freshmen last season.


    -Yeah we lost Royce who could do it all. We lost Scott and Chris who could shoot it well from 3 and the free throw line. I think Clyburn will be able to replace most of what Royce did scoring wise. I think Lucious can replace Royce's passing. I think collectively as a team we can replace Royce's rebounding. I think all our posts collectively can replace Royce's post prescence. Clyburn, Lucious, Babb, and McGee can all make up for Scott and Allen's 3's. I just think overall we will be a much better team with more experience, balance, and depth at every position.

    Here are the rosters and depth charts(IMO) that I typed up.

    Is Bubu going to play this year?

    His court date hasn't happened but I see it as innocent until proven guilty and on the team until kicked off the team.
