    WVU got pounded by Gonzaga earlier. Also, Okie State took overtime to win their second game, I can't remember who it was against, but it wasn't a powerhouse.

    Re: Big 12/Future Opponents

    I think the best team we will face all year in Cincy. It is just a got feeling, but I see them in the top 10 at the end of the year. I'm not sure where UNLV will end up (if we even play them), but Cincy will be tough. They have an experienced back court and play solid d (with pressure on the ball).

    KU...they may piece it together we will see. Okie State has pulled out some close ones and have been hampered by injuries. They could be tough later in the year.

    OU could be dangerous.

    I like the ISU team to finish in the top half of this conference (barring injuries) but I have my cardinal and gold glasses on so that is a major caveat.

    The more the Big 12 sucks the more I like our chances.

    Akron.

    It is early, but we would have been the class of the Big 12 with White.

    Re: Big 12/Future Opponents

    I think we need to quit worrying about losing White. We need to worry about Booker and Gibson and the others giving us the defense and rebounding that White gave us last year. We need to worry about Lucious giving us solid point guard play. I think we are alright, if we do the things that we need to do. We don't have to lose a step because of White. I think what White gave us that was so important, probably more than anyone else was completely unselfish play. We have people who are like that this year that will lead the team. We can't live in the past, White is gone.

    My playing days are behind me. WE do not need to do anything.

    If you don't like my use of pronouns, just say so. Next they will be asking for me to say I'm sorry I am a Cyclone alumni.

    As long as we are at it you could use some work on your use of singulars and plurals...

    Re: Big 12/Future Opponents

    These losses or near losses mean nothing this early. Don't get me wrong, it's a great post and I'm not knocking you for posting it, but losing this early will mean nothing once B12 play comes around. Once teams start to gel over the next few weeks, they'll be completely different team. Heck, I'm sure we'll have a ugly loss before January.

    So now I you are saying that I should have said, "Next they will be asking for us to say we are sorry we are Cyclone alumni." They were both good points. As a walk on, I realize that I must pay my dues.

    Re: Big 12/Future Opponents

    The way I think about this, ISU should want the B12 to do as well as possible OOC. That way they need fewer wins against higher quality in-conference opponents to punch their NCAA ticket. As much as we might hate it, it's still much about the RPI.

    /But it's my first post, what do I know...
