    ISU WBB 22 in ESPN.com preseason poll

    ESPN - ESPN.com's preseason women's top 25 poll

    Voepel rules! wish she was still at the star. That is a big loss for Big 12 media coverage of women's sports.

    Re: ISU WBB 22 in ESPN.com preseason poll

    Are you sure she left the Star? On ESPN articles, she's usually credited as an ESPN.com contributor, but she was still a columnist for the Star.

    She did leave the Star. They let a bunch of people go in a series of cost-cutting measures, and she was let go in September.

    She has a blog here: Mechelle Voepel

    My money goes to ISU for coaches like Bill F and his team for the excellence on and off the court. He is a living legend and this is what I wish to see from an athletic department.

    Go Cyclones.

    Wow, and one of the individual contributors had us ranked at No. 14. Getting some serious recognition, and it's well-deserved considering our season last year despite huge injury issues.

    Oh, wow.

    That is too bad, but I read most of her stuff on ESPN anyway, so I guess I won't be any worse for wear. It seems like she remains assigned primarily to the Big XII, so as long as that holds, I'm cool with it.

    Wishing for an injury-free season for any women's basketball team is a lot like wishing for the sun not to rise. You can wish all you want, but that sun is still going to come up tomorrow morning....trust me.

    I think 22nd is too low-I was thinking top 15 team. Hopefully after getting some big wins.

    This is a great team! If they overachieve the way most of Coach Fennelly’s teams do it’s going to be a special year!

    Re: ISU WBB 22 in ESPN.com preseason poll

    This will be a tough year, schedule wise. Away games against: TT, BU and OU. Plus the KSU and KU North games. We will make the tourney, the question is at what seed. This schedule while tough, WILL get us ready for a S16 birth! Adversity during conference opponents, only pays dividends at the tourney.

    -keep.
