    WOW!
    They could sign 5 random guys off of the street and by the next update they would have a top 10 class.

    Speaking of which - what was Kevin Young ranked?

    Signing up to lose? UHHHHHHHH didn't they make the elite 8 last year? Isn't that the 2nd time in 3 years? If that's losing, sign me up for that too.

    I remember when Brackins committed to Iowa State as a 4 star.....

    He finished as a 5 star.

    These people are not out to get Iowa State

    Yeah, I know he was a transfer and wasn't a blue chip.

    It's just when someone posted about Kansas signing 5 random guys off the street it absolutely screamed for a Kevin Young comment.

    That's a different way of being out to get us. See, raising the stars raised our expectations and told us that a national championship was on the way. Just what they wanted us to believe.

    Then it turned out that he was only a very good player with an explosive ability to score. We were deflated, disappointed, and realized that we are Iowa State. They got us coming and going.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    They don't respect Iowa State either though. It's hard to deny Thomas and Morris wouldn't be ranked higher if they had Kansas or Kentucky by their name.

    Exactly. Maybe Monte isn't as good as biased Iowa State fans think.

    If Monte isn't as good as we think then next year will be really really really rough.

    Maybe Naz will improve a lot from now until the start of next season. And Bubu isn't bad.

    Have you seen what the ESPN analysts have said about Fred Hoiberg the last 3 years? They LOVE him! There have been more positive articles written about Iowa State basketball in the last 3 years than there were the 10 prior to that.

    They respect Hoiberg and Iowa State.
