    Non Conf record

    Who thinks we will get 12 or 13 wins heading into conference play?

    We already have 6 wins. Kinda hard to end up with only 3.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Re: Non Conf record

    Ok everyone, ISU has beat some bad teams so far but just look at this team physically. Do you really think they can compete in the Big 12? Brackins is good, not great but good. If a team gets physical with him, he will be shut down. UNI looked more athletic and physically stronger then ISU the other night, ISU looks like a MVC team right now as far as play and 'look'.

    Please start bashing me but if anyone expects postseason this year, you are going to be disappointed.

    Please stop the Brackins to the NBA talk too, this is just CRAZY!

    Re: Non Conf record

    This is the worst non-conference schedule I can recall. I thought the article the Rag did about Iowa and us not ducking anyone in the non-conference was pretty funny. They said we were playing Oregon State, which they viewed as a tough team. This would be fine if OSU wasn't the worst BCS team in the country.

    We may lose to Iowa and that's it. I do think we'll beat them as long as Brackins keeps his butt in the post.

    My guess is 11-3, with losses to Iowa and Houston. I would really like to pounce Drake after they spanked us last season.

    I would probably add in Mercer as a loss too... unfortunately.

    Don't be too confident versus this OSU team. Last year was an OT win, and OSU did just beat a good Fresno team (I believe on the road). New coach, they may be starting to come together.

    That's what I think, too. I don't think we cover the spread.

    Expect another close one.

    Re: Non Conf record

    I think we'll have it.

    OSU may be coming together, but so are we. We just took care of some gorillas on our backs at UNI. The team knows what kind of stuff they can do, and they didn't do everything as well as they can there at UNI.

    Can't we just take it one game at a time?

    I have to agree with this. What is with our off-season strength program? Do we have one? If we do, it is not effective. If anything, the players have lost weight from last year.

    Wow, not sure why you went to B12 and post season here. Try to stay up with the thread.
