    Re: Which season are or were you most excited for?

    Definitely this season.

    I'm stoked to watch Clyburn. I love the fact that we have a true PG that has played in two final fours. Having good depth at every position and 5 seniors is exciting too.

    This will be the peak of my excitement for a year or two I think. Next year won't be as exciting I don't think. The fact that we are losing 5 seniors and more than likely 4 or 5 of our top 6 players from this year doesn't excite me much.

    Why does it have to be a contest? I'm excited for every Cyclone season!

    Re: Which season are or were you most excited for?

    Although I am pretty excited for this season, I was SUPER pumped for the beginning of the season last year. Everybody had been hyping up the transfers so I was really excited to see how everything would fall together especially with Royce. The combination of hype about players and a renewed confidence from CFH after his first year had me on edge.

    Re: Which season are or were you most excited for?

    I would say I was most fired up in general for Coach Fred's first year back. I was never so fired up for ISU basketball in my life. However, that was just fired up for the future and not neccessarily to see the team. I would say I'm most fired up to root for this team because we finally have the chance to build off a successful team again.

    Re: Which season are or were you most excited for?

    That's a tough question for me. I was really pumped for last year's season, but this is my last year at ISU so that adds to this year's excitement. I already miss Royce and Scottie, but it's not like that will make me not enjoy this season.

    Re: Which season are or were you most excited for?

    I give last year an edge. I'm pretty excited for this year though. If Royce had returned, easily this year.

    I think I'm more excited to see our recruiting class coming in next year(hopefully), but overall I think Will Clyburn will be the most exciting addition.

    Re: Which season are or were you most excited for?

    Easily last year. We almost had an entirely new team than the year before. I'm from Minnesota so i was especially pumped to show off royce to my friends from the U of M. It was full of such expectations after a last place finish in the big 12. Even though I was very impressed what fred did with the limited talent he had his first year. We were competitive in just about every game that year.

    Re: Which season are or were you most excited for?

    12-13 for me. I'd say last year I was intrigued with the transfers, but a bit hesitant to get too excited because we were going to be so reliant on transfers. This year, knowing more about who is coming back, knowing what Fred can do with talent and seeing his growth/ability as a coach, and buying in a little more about the transfers I am really getting excited.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    This season, for no deeper reason than I get worked up for every season, and this is the one right in front of us.


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

    I guess you must have missed BBHMagic's post. I might go with 2010-11 also. I was so pumped to finally have a new coach and get the McDoormat years in the past.

    Yep I was most excited for Fred to be back in Ames for 2010-11. 2011-12, I was excited to see the transfers play. I don't feel as excited this season but I am looking forward to see what the freshman can do.

    I am just glad that I can look at our roster and want to see so many of the players succeed. It is hard for me to have a favorite player this year but I enjoy watching Babb and McGee.
