    That review kind of falls in line with what I am expecting. I think they will surprise a few people but with so many new people mixed with a brand new system, I think .500 basketball would be a good season. NIT would be outstanding. NCAA would have him up for coach of the century.

    Whoa... 134th out of 144th?? 12th in the Big XII?? While the preview seems accurate with its analysis, those rankings seem too low. I guess, if nothing else, GMac can always use it for bulletin board material and play the "no respect" card...

    Re: collegehoops.net mens bb preview

    That appears to be a fair assessment. Hopefully this group of unknowns will surprise to the upside. Considering that G Mac was hired in the spring and only had 4 returning players, it makes sense to keep expectations in check.

    With that said it is nothing short of a miracle that GMAC was able to sign the players that he did on such short notice. I can't wait to see this team come together.

    It's not as much a lack of respect, but a lack of information. Besides Clark, no one knows much about this team. We don't even know how things will go this yeas.

    The last time we only had one star returning and were picked to finish last in the conference, we won and were a 2 seed in the NCAA tournament.

    Re: collegehoops.net mens bb preview

    I'd love for that to happen, and I think we'll exceed expectations, but that one returner from a couple years ago was a McDonald's All-American and a lottery pick, we don't have anyone like that this year. I would love either of the juco guys to surprise us like Tinsley, Horton, and Nurse did.

    When I read the article, I didn't notice the ranking #'s. I would put ISU at 70 to 80 realistically, and maybe 8th or 9th in the Big 12, based on talent alone. No way they are that low.

    We didn't have Fizer the year that I am talking about. In the 2000-2001 season we were picked to finish last in the Big 12 and won the conference and were a 2 seed. However we lost to Baylor in the Big 12 tournament and Hampton in the first round of the NCAA tournament.

    Without doing the research I think you're wrong on that 2000-2001 season. There's no way we were picked to finish last that year. I mean Baylor was still really really bad then.

    Yeah and we had Tinsley back who was preseason all american and pre season big 12 player of the year. They usually dont have the team with the best player and elite 8 the year before as last. That statement is very inaccurate. And there is more than 144 DI bball teams. Its around 316.

    WIth all due respect bootcy, you are definitely wrong on the expectations for 2000-01. I distinctly remember that at the very least, Blue Ribbon College Yearbook had us ranked #30 in the whole country. They didn't pick up to repeat as champion, but we were definitely not picked last.
