    Big 12 Preseason Poll: Iowa State #8

    Underdogs again! Love it!

    Kansas Unanimous Choice To Win Big 12 Men's Basketball Title - Big 12 Conference - Official Athletic Site

    EDIT: Based on our point total, it looks like eight of the coaches voted ISU #8 and the other one put ISU #7.

    Re: Big 12 Preseason Poll: Iowa State #8

    History says that every time Kansas is picked to win the Big 12, either Kansas or Iowa State wins the Big 12...so I'm saying we have a chance.

    KU should be #1 every year until they stop winning the league 4 out of 5 years, but I'll eat my shorts if Oklahoma, OK State, KState, Baylor, and Texas all leapfrog ahead of ISU this year. I don't think we'll finish ahead of all of them, but we will be on top of at least two of those teams in the final standings for 6th place at worst.

    Re: Big 12 Preseason Poll: Iowa State #8

    Looks like most teams thought Iowa State last year was Royce White. ISU will be dealing with that until it proves that this year's squad is the real deal, too.

    I'd take Clyburn based off his MWC production alone over the best player on several teams picked ahead of ISU in this poll. It's natural to assume he hasn't gotten worse through a year of practicing against a 3rd place Big 12 team.

    ISU's next recruiting class ranking nationally is as high as their position in a Big 12 poll. These idiots will find out soon enough.

    Re: Big 12 Preseason Poll: Iowa State #8

    i have no issues with that prediction. every team in front of us either 1) returns much more than us (KSU, OU, KU) or 2) has more nba talent on the roster (BAY, TX, WVU, OSU).

    when you look at the point totals, its interesting to me how much of a consensus there is from the coaches, as most teams are 9-10 pts apart, with the exception of Bay, TX, KSU, OSU.

    if our teams plays as well as we all think they can, we'll be in the top 5 for sure. but i think we're looking at end of season standings that have 5-6 teams between 8-10 and 10-8.

    Do OU, OSU and KSU really return a lot more talent than Clyburn, Lucious, Babb, Booker, Ejim, McGee, and Gibson? In terms of guys who've shown what they can do at high D1 level I don't think any of them bring back any more than us. I get what you're saying about Texas, Baylor, KU, WVU having high end talent, with the others I don't see some awesome returning talent that jumps OU, OSU, and KSU above us. I'll be absolutely shocked if all 3 of them improve past us this year.

    Re: Big 12 Preseason Poll: Iowa State #8

    I think it is just that ISU is again an unknown. Everybody looks at the fact that the three top scorers are gone, and especially Royce is gone........plus they really don't know for sure how Clyburn and Korie will fit in, or how the team will mesh, so........they pick them low.

    Good motivation for the team.

    All B12 Coaches: "ISU? Without Royce we will destroy them!"
    Loses at the Hilton, ends ranked lower than ISU.

    Re: Big 12 Preseason Poll: Iowa State #8

    I love how in football and basketball the last few years we have exceeded expectations yet we still get no respect..


    ďI told you, I donít care if youíre black or white. I donít care if youíre rich or poor. I donít care where you come from, whether itís Texas, Florida, California, or right here in the state of Iowa, I donít care about any of thatÖ But what I did care about is moving forward from that day on, that we were one team." -Paul Rhoads

    One thing they overlook is our team depth. We can bring others in if a person is having a bad game.

    Re: Big 12 Preseason Poll: Iowa State #8

    I'm concerned about KU's dominance in this conference.

    Somebody needs to step up and knock them off, or they are gonna go "John Wooden" on us and rack up something like, 10-11-12 consecutive titles. And the B12 will start getting ribs from outsiders that we are a Big 1 + 9 dwarfs conference; resembling CUSA.
