    ISU has toughest SOS right now in the Big 12

    According to Ken Pomeroy. That will undoubtedly fall a little bit after we play the first two games of the LV tourney and the final three before conference play, but regardless, with all of the struggles ISU has had getting healthy and eligible I don't think Greg would have scheduled so tough to start this season.

    I AGREE Bryce this non conference portion of the schedule is very tough when you dont have all your players plus wes and jiri trying to get over injuries.

    Re: ISU has toughest SOS right now in the Big 12

    With all that being said, I don't think we have over-scheduled. All of our games have been winnable. It's not like we're playing UCLA and North Carolina on the road. I like scheduling competitive games in the non-conference. If we win them, we have a better shot at making the Big Dance when that time comes.

    I agree, this has been a pretty fun noncon so far with the games we've had scheduled. I really hope McD continues to agressively schedule.

    Re: ISU has toughest SOS right now in the Big 12

    Very good point. I'd rather go tough in the non-conference and get us ready for big 12 play rather than go light and make our team feel great then get our **** handed to us in conference play. I.E. Kansas in football, look what happened when it came to a big game.

    I think it would be fun to start scheduling Minnesota every year. I'm not sure how far out our non-conference match-ups with them will go, but I think it's a great team with Tubby. short drive, well 3 hours, big 10 team (not saying much now) but maybe later. So far they respect us as fans, and we respect them! I'd like to see it continue for many yeras to come!

    I'd love to play Minny every year. Maybe add in games with Wisconsin and Illinois too. That would be a lot of fun.

    We need to schedule Minnesota for football, too.

    And as for basketball, I've always wanted a rematch with Michigan State.

    Re: ISU has toughest SOS right now in the Big 12

    It's almost impossible to schedule any team for a tournament in your own house - that's why every team's homecourt tourney is with crappy teams.

    Re: ISU has toughest SOS right now in the Big 12

    Well, USC-Upstate (formally USC-Spartanburg) was division II up until somewhere around 2004. They should be easy to beat and weaken our SOS, though I probably just jinxed us.

    What are the chances we see Iowa State play USC in future?
