    When will Clones be ranked?

    No, not this year, and most certainly not next year, but the following year we should finally be a ranked team for the bulk of the year. The time lapse of non-ranked ISU teams is depressing but what will Hilton be like when it becomes the norm?

    Probably when you stop saying two idiot kills deserve to be shot is my guess.

    Never? A racist being shot will never bother me. Way to stay on topic.

    Re: When will Clones be ranked?

    I think next year is possible because I think Fred still has some tricks up his sleeve for recruiting.

    I can all but guarantee you 2015 is the biggest year for me. The Cubs will win the world series and the Cyclones will be an elite 8 team.

    Re: When will Clones be ranked?

    While I wouldn't go as far to say as next year's team will be ranked I will say however that I think next year's team is going to be better than people think. If we were close to being ranked at one point this year, I could easily see next year's team getting close too.

    Re: When will Clones be ranked?

    Have we ever been consistently ranked? (not including Tinsley years)

    I was on topic actually, it just wasn't the answer you wanted to hear. I gave my opinion.

    Thanks though.

    Was the last time we were ranked top 25 during the preseason of the 2005-06 season?

    Re: When will Clones be ranked?

    2013-14 I would say will have a ceiling of being a bubble team (about like this year). We may take our lumps and I wouldn't be shocked to see us finish with 16 or so wins unless our Juco's are better than advertised.

    2014-15 should set up nicely for us to be a serious B12 contender. And if we can somehow land a legit big between now and then we could be set up to play most of the season ranked and make a deep tourney run.

    Re: When will Clones be ranked?

    If you mean preseason Top 25, I'd guess the 2014-2015 season. I hope I'm wrong, but unless Matt Thomas is even better than advertised and the Juco transfers exceed everyone's expectations, it's probably a bubble team for the tourney in the best case scenario.

    Re: When will Clones be ranked?

    I'd be ok with having the 2014-2015 team being really good. That's my senior year and would love to finish it off with a bang


    My teams: (as of 6/15/14)
    Cleveland Browns: 4-12 - .250
    Cleveland Indians: 34-35 - .493
    Cleveland Cavs: 33-49 - .402
    Iowa State Cyclones (FB): 3-9 - .250
    Iowa State Cyclones (BB): 28-8 - .778

    Re: When will Clones be ranked?

    I'm really tempering my expectations for next year in the interest of preserving my sanity. I think we'll be okay but a step down from this year. Im not saayingn we'll succk but I don't think the players we have coming in can fill the shoes of Babb, KL and Mcgee (yes, left Will out on purpose). I only say that because of their newnesss, really looking forward to that talent thefolllowing season.

    I mean during any extended time during the year. Teetering at 23-25 every few weeks wouldn't fit my criteria for this discussion. I'll take an NCAA bid right now for next year if offerred. I don't care if it's last team in. I think it will be NIT.
