    Who is the big conference upset?

    Who will be Iowa State's victim as an upset in conference play this year. I think we possibly have a shot at Kansas in Hilton. Give me your thoughts on this...


    Cyclone Football

    It's the start of something big.

    NHL teams need to be added to the favorite teams section.

    Re: Who is the big conference upset?

    I think we could get hot behind the 3 point line and pull off a couple of big upsets this year. I do think it will probably have to come at home. I could see us pulling one off against Kansas for sure and maybe even Texas. No way we even have a change against Oklahoma unless Griffin is out..

    who is the second worse team in the conference again?

    whoever that is, that's my guess.

    We were picked 11th in the conference so any win outside of Colorado would be an upset.

    Re: Who is the big conference upset?

    i think kansas cuz there so young or Baylor. They are projected to be very good this yr. but i feel they rely on guard play a little too much and i think craig can have a good game against them

    we are not even close to athletic enough to compete with Baylor, so throw that one out.

    KU just lost to a 2-6 UMass team in basically a home game. They're going to be really prone to road upsets this year.

    Re: Who is the big conference upset?

    I say we beat Missouri in Hilton as the upset. We shouldn't match up well with their "40 minutes of hell" but for whatever reason we've played them tough since McDermott took over. Outside of that, we better just hope to beat Nebraska, Colorado, and maybe K-State in Hilton.

    Re: Who is the big conference upset?

    We have a team that can play really, really good in flashes. Odds are, they will pull one or two upsets, but also lose to a couple of teams that they should beat. I'm guessing somewhere between 6-10 and 8-8 in conference play and a possible NIT berth.
