    Predicting the 1st Loss in 2014-15 for Top College Basketball Teams

    Sorry if already posted, but we've got a mention in this BR article.


    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2...-teams/page/20

    While I hate BR with a passion, at least they've got us as one of their top teams for 2014-2015.

    I can't believe that was even worthy of them creating a blurb about. Good that we're in the news I guess? But really, how tough is it to predict our first loss could either be @Iowa or @Kansas, @KState, @Oklahoma, @Texas. Way to take a stand, BR.

    To be fair they kind of backed out of ISU losing to Iowa and instead the first of those conference teams that ISU plays on the road so they did take a stand.

    agreed, its been the one aspect we've not seen the last couple of years, I cant wait to see teams hesitate to take it to the rack, whereas before they just attacked at all times, its going to help us out greatly.

    So calling for an undefeated home slate then, huh?

    I'd sign up for a 2X-4 regular season.

    How do we go from pretty tough non conference schedule in 2013-2014 to cupcake non conference schedule this year?

    Since we'll start the year ranked, If that prediction happens we'll easily be top 10 by big 12 play.

    Wait. Wait.

    Are we actually getting a sliver of respect? I just need to be sure so that I can remember this moment forever.

    Re: Predicting the 1st Loss in 2014-15 for Top College Basketball Teams

    A road game against in-state rival Iowa is the only one that might result in a loss, but the Hawkeyes could be a bit of a mess without Roy Devyn Marble, Zach McCabe and Melsahn Basabe.
    Lol.
