    Re: 2014-15 WBB schedule is up

    I usually defend the ISU non-conference slate, but this one is awfully weak.

    A lot of teams in the low 100s that we should be able to beat and won't kill our RPI. 3 absolute creampuffs (pretty normal). Two good teams, one neutral and one road.

    Looks like a easy road to 20 wins and in the ncaa's . If they can finish top 3 in the conference I'll believe we have a pretty good team.

    And... ANOTHER crap schedule that does not reward the loyal home fans with entertaining games.

    Yes, but the home non-con schedule, for the very loyal Cyclone fans, is awful.

    Re: 2014-15 WBB schedule is up

    I don't buy this excuse at all anymore. You always see big teams playing home and homes. I am not even advocating for play the "BIG" teams. How about just a few middle of the pack power 5 teams? How about some top tier "mid-majors"? Something that at least makes going to a non-con game exciting.

    Driving to Ames KNOWING that we are going to win and then sitting there with no reason to cheer and being up 45-10 at halftime... it really kind of sucks.

    Not very strong for sure, but with 5 new freshman coming in, some of whom will need to develop early (the bigs especially) before Big 12 play, I see it fitting right in to where CBF wants to go this year.

    I agree let them gain some confidence before the conference games. The Cincinnati game is the return game from last year when we played there. They always go somewhere for Thanksgiving which is hard to find tournaments. These are the Wyoming and St Mary's games. APR and Fairfield may be before and after finals. I don't have any problem with that. One of these games is the replacement for UNI also as we evidently couldn't find an agreeable date with them so it might have been a last minute addition.

    20-21 games are set in stone every season.

    For the handful of games that ISU can control, the theory has always been to not schedule your way out of the postseason. Given this year's roster, it makes perfect sense.

    As a season ticket holder for both sports, I'm glad our volleyball coach hasn't got that memo:
