    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

    Re: Cool Brun story - Ames Tribune

    That kid has grown up so much in 3 years. It may have happened anywhere but I think a little credit goes to the staff here. I said it when it was announced but it's not very often you have a JUCO kid come in, have to redshirt not because of size or strength and become a captain. I hope he has a great season. There may not be a single player I root for to succeed more than him.

    Or so I have read.

    Exactly. Guys who come into the program with his original attitude usually don't make it past their first season. He bought into the program because of our coaches and reinvented himself completely.

    That was/is a great story. I get tired of all of the negative stories in sports, always fun to read the positive ones. Now here's hoping that the NCAA won't investigate Ernst for signing autographs!
