    Forget football...it's basketball time. Conference Predicitons

    Tough loss today, but it's time to support the basketball program.

    What is everyone's predictions for the conference season. Got 10-8 and getting an 11 seed.

    This. I agree. Let's take out our sports frustrations on the Ivy League.

    Just flipped to ESPN2 and they were talking ISU's chances of making the tourney. I was surprised we were in the conversation at this point, but it was nice to hear that. Unfortunately they then mentioned the debacle that occurred on ESPN.

    I've seen nothing so far that leads me to believe we are anywhere close to having NCAA tournament potential. The newcomers are vastly over-rated and the best hustler doesn't even start.

    Iowa State would be a bubble team as of today. Think 10 should barely get us in mostly to the conference reputation. 11 should lock it in.

    Way to be dramatic, all of our losses were away from home and against good teams. Two of them have great shots at the sweet 16 and the other was against an improved heated rival at their place where they almost just beat Indiana. I will be shocked if we lose more than 2 games at home. Get some decent road wins and we will be sitting fine.

    WE have no go to guy at the end of close games. It will be tough.

    Re: Forget football...it's basketball time. Conference Predicitons

    We have no bad losses. Granted we don't have a lot of great wins to point to, but there's not shame in losing ot Cinci on a neutral court, UNLV in Vegas, and Iowa in IC. Iowa nearly beat #5 Indiana today, and they appear to be legit and will have a better than 50/50 shot at the tourney, IMO.

    I'll easily take the over on that. We might have 6 Big XII wins by the time February starts.
