    Iowa State 15-1 to win title

    Lost in the coaching-change fiasco is the fact ISU is still considered among top contenders for the title. I assume odds will change if Hoiberg leaves.

    Texas A&M is the 2nd SEC team on the list at 50-1. It's gonna be a tough one in College Station. Thanks for posting.

    Which is why I didn't understand all the hate. A&M will be a good team next year, and it will a very tough road game.

    Not a compelling matchup, buzz-wise, but challenging. I still might put LSU above A&M in SEC (and LSU was the B12/SEC I expected to see).

    From a national and local fan perspective, the A&M matchup doesn't have the sizzle of a Florida or LSU matchup.

    Things will even out though when the national and local media warms up to the matchup. By the end of the season, it will be considered a much-better matchup for Iowa State than playing Florida.

    I'm sure the odds would change some, but I think the impact of Hoiberg returning next year is being a.little overblown by some. This is an experienced team with lots of talent. They could probably coach themselves to 20 wins this year.

    Cool to see this. I was in Vegas right before Fred's third season started. I wanted to put money on ISU, but they were not even listed. Only way to bet on them was bet on the field. Amazing how far this team has come. Hoping it continues, with or without the same coach.

    20 wins is barely an NIT team.

    Depends on which 20 you win.
