    and for stealing all there in state recruits year after year.



    Anyways I like this move, I have always said our preconference schedule is weak, and dosent prepare our younger guys for the Big 12. When getting placed into the NCAA tourney, I think having a better conference record is weighed alot heavier then getting the easy wins in the non conference schedule. So if we were to go .500 (5-5) in the nonconference, and then go like .750 (12-4) in conference, (about a 17-9 record) would look alot better then going .800 (8-2) in the non conference and .563 (9-7) in conference (same 17-9 record).

    With the 9-7 record, you are looking at finishing around 7th in the Big 12, where with the 12-4 you are looking at a strong 4th, maybe even 3rd.

    This is by no means my prediction for ISU this year, but just wanted to make the point that if you are better prepared for the conference games that it will be more benificial. Play the tougher teams early, so when we enter the big 12 we are ready to go. The past few years have show that ISU alweays comes out flat in conference play.

    It should be interesting, we will get to face Lawrence Westbrook, unless he redshirts which I doubt he will.. He will be disappointed that he didn&#39;t come to a better college [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/tongue.gif[/img]

    I don&#39;t think it was really Westbrook&#39;s decision not to come to ISU.

    I gotta respectfully disagree with that, even though i live in Minneapolis and would love to see ISU here (one less road trip per year)...maybe in a couple of years, after we get OK and TX off of the schedule, and if the Cyclones can step up a notch in their level of play.

    The ISU schedule is pretty difficult now, with Iowa, Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Texas Tech already on the schedule. ISU gets a pretty nice payout for being bowl eligible, and adding a(nother) Big 10 team and strengthening their already tough SOS could mean the difference between being bowl eligible and not being bowl eligible.

    When ISU can play at an 8-3 or 9-2 w/l level regularly, i can see us adding MN. But until then, and until TX and OK come off the schedule (in 2008) i don&#39;t think we should be adding a power conference team to the schedule.
