    Will there be another sports year as good as 2000 was anytime soon?

    2000 was a heck of a year across the board:

    Men's BBall - Big 12 conference champs, Big 12 Tournament champs, Elite 8 appearance

    Women's BBall - Big 12 confernce champs, Big 12 Tournament champs, Sweet 16 appearance

    Football - 9-3 overall record culminating in big win at Insight.com bowl.

    I remember saying it at the time and certainly in my lifetime of following ISU sports (37yrs) this was the best it has been.

    Will we see this level of success again?

    I doubt we see that much success at that level ALL in the same year again. I REALLY hope Im wrong.

    2010, ISU goes to the Big Dance and goes to a January bowl game.

    Until we go to a January bowl, no. But if we ever go, then no matter what the other sports do the answer is yes.

    Would need to be a BCS bowl. I don't think the Cotton bowl would do it for me to rate over 2000 overall.

    Yes, that was a special year, and will be hard to match anytime soon!

    I could definitely see a year where we get a decent bowl game, both basketball teams in the NCAA (maybe even sweet 16), AND a national title in wrestling. I think that would be better overall. It will be tough to match that year though.

    IIRC they just missed making the final top 6 meet at the end of the year (they were rated #7)

    I got to interview Pete Taylor the following Spring. He was still beaming.

    Re: Will there be another sports year as good as 2000 was anytime soon?

    I really consider myself lucky to be in school at that time. I still remember isufbcurt telling me at the beginning of the year, how one of the fb coaches had heard that our new point guard was the best ballhandler one of our assistant bball coaches had ever seen. I shrugged it off as some Bill Walton type comment, where everything is the premiere, or best he'd ever seen.....obviously Melmel made us believers.
