    Jason King's take on the Big 12 season

    Nothing shocking, but thought some might be interested:

    A primer for the Big 12 season -- college basketball - ESPN


    -Be kind. That is something you will never regret. You will never say to yourself when you are old "I wish I was not good to that person".

    Wow, I love Kings optimism but hes smoking crack on ISU. If hes right, I will write him letter apologizing, but Im not convinced.

    re: Jason King's take on the Big 12 season

    I would be happy with a 4th place finish.

    Re: Jason King's take on the Big 12 season

    this might be the first season of any sport in ISU history where the majority of the national media is more positive on our team than the majority of our fans.

    Re: Jason King's take on the Big 12 season

    4th is about right. Big 12 picked up some decent wins as of late but most of those were by the three teams ahead of us. I would put EMAW ahead of us at this point in predictions. Texas over UNC was good but not great, there isn't much left to discuss after that.

    "Iowa State is incredibly well-coached..."

    I'm not smart enough to know how true this is but Fred is often lauded for his coaching ability. Not bad for a greenhorn.

    Re: Jason King's take on the Big 12 season

    Realistically we can end up anywhere from 2nd-6th, so 4th is about right.

    Re: Jason King's take on the Big 12 season

    Anything under 5th would be an extreme disappointment with 5 seniors on the roster (4 RS)

    Switch Baylor and OSU and that is exactly what I picked for the finish of the league yesterday.

    probably due to the fact jason king was the KU beat writer when we were coached by wayne morgan and greg mcdermott.

    At least Morgan beat KU in '05. "He who shall not be named" never did.

    Re: Jason King's take on the Big 12 season

    I think 4th is very accurate. We should be able to hold our home court win the only toss ups being KU and OSU imo. We should sweep TCU and Tech easily. WVU and OU would be the next 2 we should be looking at sweeping. I'd call Texas a sweep too but they get Kabongo back the day they play us at Texas. Will they be much better with him or will they struggle adjusting to his playing after 2/3s the season without him.

    4th is absolutely doable.
