    I get what you're saying, but the ratings change. It has nothing to do with players getting better or worse, just more evaluation. There are tons of factors that could have effected it, none of which have anything to do with ISU. There is very little difference between guys in the top 100, except for maybe the guys at the top, the rest is meaningless. In the end, IMO we are still getting 2 really solid players who will end up helping our program. Where they are rated doesn't mean much the minute they step on campus.

    I feel bad for the players, if they care, but nothing has changed.

    The thirst for validation is an interesting phenomenon which many fortune tellers have learned to exploit.

    Don't stop believing. I see great things in your future. Please send me a check, and I will tell you more.

    Re: Screw you ESPN!!

    I can tell you that Hoiberg pays a lot of attention to rankings. And I can bet you that at this time he is thinking about pulling Monte's and Thomas' scholarship. Then Fred will log on to espn.com to see who the new number 34 and 82 are, so that he can offer them the 2 scholarships.

    Re: Screw you ESPN!!

    To be honest, I am betting Morris's ranking dropped due to his competition level. He has excellent numbers that I would bet stack up to almost anyone in the country at his position so imo, dropping him that much is absurd.

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    On the rankings aspect, Victor Oladipo was not highly rated and look what he's done. Potential lottery pick. Rankings, especially from ESPN, mean absolutely nothing.

    Monte will play guard.
    Pretty sure ESPN can gather he'll play guard, but you know there is this crazy concept in basketball where there are two types of guards.

    Re: Screw you ESPN!!

    How ridiculous is Kansas' class? #12 Wayne Selden, #28 Joel Embiid(previously not even ranked), #43 Brannen Greene, #47 Conner Frankamp, #134(rivals) Frank Mason.

    #1 Andrew Wiggins considering Kansas, and #3 Julius Randle visiting Kansas on Saturday for the game vs Texas.

    WOW!

    Little depressing to be honest. How people keep signing up to lose at Baylor is beyond me. AND TCU? How in the world with the ****** facilities and fans support they have, are they getting 4star talent?

    Wow and to think we were top 25 before the update. If Vaughn committed here he would probably instantly drop to a 4 star.
