    looks like bulletin board material to me - "these guys think you're last, let's prove them wrong!"

    Not surprising in any way. I suspect we'll prove a few folks wrong this year.

    Is there anything more worthless than a preseason poll?


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    Vote-wise, we're not even close to K-State.

    I watched the 00 Big XII tourney MBB championship game last night. They had us picked last that season too. Looks like history is about to repeat itself, this time in football.

    We haven't done anything to deserve to be picked higher than that.

    Not surprising considering how we look on paper - but I'd be surprised if we did finish last in the North. Here's to proving folks wrong!!

    I think we'll finish 3rd or 4th in the North.

    Re: Big 12 preseason poll out, ISU last in North

    I would vote us last until we do something. No reason to beleive we will be any better than last this year either. New starting QB. Our big time receiver graduated. No Tuba. Bowen is gone. Our recruiting classes have not been so good on paper.

    At least people think we will suck less than Baylor.
