    Top 10 ISU Stories for the Year?

    I am going to talk about this today, and I have my list...I just want to make sure that I am touching on all of the bases.

    In your eyes, what are the top 5 or 6 stories, ISU related, for last year? Lucca being denied, ISU Wrestling #2 at Nationals and winning B12, that sort of thing.

    Re: Top 10 ISU Stories for the Year?

    Gotta give a little love to women's VB for making a good showing in the tournament this year.

    Mike Taylor - not a good story, but a big one.

    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Re: Top 10 ISU Stories for the Year?

    I know what could be a top ten story:

    One of the biggest Hawkeye fans, and central Iowa sports personality, Jon Miller, sees the error of his ways and converts to a Cyclone fan at center court of the Texas Southern-ISU MBB game.

    Jon, there's still time.


    Forever trying to find a cure for the Dunning-Kruger Effect.

    I heard he was considering coming out of the Clone closet at an Iowa MBB game but he was afraid both people in the stands would throw stuff at him
