    It's like Johnny Orr said before his first year, "we're picked last, but the great thing is if you get fourth they name you coach of the year"

    It makes sense that we are picked this low, but hopefully that pre-season schedule will give this group confidence to win some games in the Big 12.

    I don't think that we would have been picked fourth with Wesley still here.

    But always remember there are two sides to every story; yours, mine, and the truth.

    And please also remember, KG said repeatedly, over the Summer, that Wesley wasn't that good, and he couldn't guard anyone if his life depended upon it. If that is the case then it's addition by subtraction

    I miss the days when there was excitement heading into the Big XII Tournament. Now it's just praying we can win in the first round.

    My favorite thing about Cyclonefanatic is watching people be bi-polar. When Wesley was wearing cardinal and gold, we dubbed him the next Scottie Pippen. Now that he is at SU, his whole game sucks. Hopefully we don't read about him someday eating a steady diet of government cheese and living in a van down by the river.

    Yeah, I agree. I really think we lost a good player...would have helped a ton this year to have him....and healthy.

    Enter Lucca. This kid better have what it takes to lead this team. And I do mean lead..... (I just have waited for a long time for someone to shoot the long ball with consistancy....this is what we need.)

    Freshman insight: I also see Eikmeier being a great threat deep, and Buckley playing important minutes. I just want Pomlee to play D and get BOARDS.... Get us back in the Top 5 in the conference where we belong Mac....or you are going to **** the Alums off a little more. (You play at Hilton for goodness sake! WIN-)

    5 of the bottom 6 are North teams. Yikes. We really, really need to win some games this year.

    How can K-State be ahead of us??? They lost Beasley and Walker, that was pretty much all they had.

    So what if somebody thinks the Cyclones are the 11th best team in the Big 12? All McD & Co. have to do is prove them wrong...or right.

    Martin's recruiting classes are ranked higher than ours, and they played a LOT better than we did last year.

    Plus, we lost 35 ppg with Jiri, Rahshon, and Wesley, and we only scored 65 points a game as a team. The math really hurts us.

    Brackins and lucca will pick up part of those points. I think people will pick up those points. Rahshon didn't have that high of an average.

    There will be a lot of winnable games in the north lets hope ISU can win them. Wes will be a loss, any player that can score 25 pts a game quietly will be missed. I think there will be more team this year than in the past few years because of him leaving. There is going to be 2 or 3 real good teams and the rest will fall in behind. It will be interesting to see how spots 5-10 will end up.

    Who's that guy?



    I think we're going to give 'em hell this year. I like our guys and I like the type of guys McD recruits. I see us fighting in the middle of the pack and I do see the conference being down this year.
