ESPN the Magazine college hoops preview is out and they pick ISU 35th, 5th in the conference just behind K-State at #34. Full Big 12:

KU (5)
Baylor (21)
Texas (29)
KSU (34)
ISU (35)
OSU (48)
Oklahoma (53)
WVU (55)
Texas Tech (131)
TCU (189)

Interesting compared to coaches picks:

KU
Baylor
Oklahoma State
Texas
Kansas State
West Virginia
Oklahoma
Iowa State
Texas Tech
TCU

I suppose that there's not a lot of separation between the middle of the pack, but even with so many unknowns, I still think this team finishes between 4 and 6.
