    ESPN Headline

    "Upstart Iowa State hammers #4 Texas A&M".


    Makes it sound like we are some little unknown program. We are not a freaking upstart.

    Re: ESPN Headline

    We were an upstart when we knocked UConn out of the NCAA Tourney in 1999 (even though we were a 3 or 4 seed). 10 years of good basketball later - we're no longer an upstart.

    Thought A&M was #4? #10 is not very impressive.

    Depends which rankings you subscribe to #10 in AP, #4 in Coaches.

    Re: ESPN Headline

    The difference in headlines just illustrates the journalistic integrity that is exhibited by ESPN.

    Upstart program =/= Any upset of a higher ranked team

    Bingo. The girls kicked the crap out of a highly ranked team. Kicked the crap out of them. Who cares if it's #4 or #10, or whether or not someone refers to us as an "upstart".


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    I guess the Register uses AP also... http://www.desmoinesregister.com/art...0605/902050388

    I bet if it was Iowa they'd use the ESPN/Coaches poll.

    Re: ESPN Headline

    Most places tend to use the AP poll. Generally only ESPN lists the coaches poll next to team names on their pages or on tv, or first in articles(since they're affiliated.) And cyclones.com will always use whichever is higher.

    Re: ESPN Headline

    I have a feeling that your Cyclone women would be called "upstart" BY ESPN even if they got to the #1 ranking.

    WTG Twister Sisters! Keep the "upstart" wins and "upsets" coming BF!
