    Can we make a big run this year?

    Talking to a buddy of mine and we think we could be in for a special season this year. We have a chance to make last season look mediocre in comparison. Can't wait!

    Don't see why not!


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    We need to go undefeated in the non conference. Only challenges should be Cincy and BYU.

    We're gonna have to get by the Campbell fighting camels to do it.. tough task. They usually circle one game a year as their "super bowl" and beat some really great team..then get blown out by everyone else the rest of the year. Hopefully they don't choose us.

    Um, UNLV says hello. They're a top 15 team this year and if we play them, it will be a virtual home game for them. That will be by far our toughest test during the non-conference schedule.

    Playing them early in the year would be the time to..they'll have a younger team this year. I'm pretty sure they lost most of their starters from last year, but still lots of talent.

    Sorry I don't pay attention to the schedule 24/7.

    Going undefeated in the non-conference seems to get thrown around every year we think we may have a decent team. Its just not that easy. Basketball is a sport where you may just have a bad shooting day while the other team is hot. Going undefeated for a stretch of games against any competition isn't easy.

    Funny thing though that we beat them by like 45 or whatever it was 2 years ago when we had a crapass team & last year we lose to them. Wierd deal.

    We tend to lose at Drake, but we've never played them at Wells Fargo. I don't know if the old trend continues or if we're starting something new.

    We should have a good team this year but I won't bet on an undefeated non-con record

    Just curious what you define as special? Last year we were 23-11 and came in 3rd in the Big XII. I don't see much improvement on that, certainly not the type to make last year look mediocre.

    Re: Can we make a big run this year?

    I think it will be very similar to last year. Stay away from the #1 seed in the tournament and who knows but I don't see a "special" season as far as number of wins go. The Big 12 will be pretty tough.

    I'd bet a lot of money that we don't go undefeated in the non-conference.

    At least this year we'll have a real point guard with a more traditional offense. The guys were still trying to figure things out last season.
    After witnessing last years game in person, I too hope we stomp them haha.
