    Conference season is upon us!

    Even though we won't have the greatest year in terms of record, I am very excited for us to play against the big boys.

    What will our conference record be?

    Me too. We would need 7-9 to reach NIT most likely but I think that might be a little out of reach this year.

    I picked 7-9. I really think that we are going to surprise some people down the road this year.

    Re: Conference season is upon us!

    I think overall this team has made vast improvements during the non-conference season. People are finding out what exactly their role is on the team (Hubalek playing down low finally). I picked 8-8. I have a feeling we will be tough at home and pick up some slop wins on the road.

    I'm down with 6-10. It won't be a thing of beauty, but I think these boys have a couple surprises up their jerseys...

    Re: Conference season is upon us!

    I picked 9-7 because I think that would make us a bubble team. But realistically, I think 6-10, with a couple of good quality road wins. Still impressed at how we played at Ohio State.

    Re: Conference season is upon us!

    7-9 is a solid record for this team. Anything hovering around .500 is acceptable for these fellas. I'm looking forward to seeing what surprises they can pull off!!

    I agree (not about the record), at times, it won't be pretty, but I think that we will win a game, or two that we have no business winning.

    In the end, I just think that the fact that we will struggle to score most nights means that we will win about 4-6 games in our conference. The Big 12 is not outstanding this season, most of the talent is very young, so I think that we will catch a couple of teams by surprise.

    Hang in there folks, it will get better.

    Re: Conference season is upon us!

    Somewhere between 4-6 wins - so I went with 5-11.

    Re: Conference season is upon us!

    I'm thinking 5-11, but from the way this team has appeared to improve and the fact the Big 12 isn't real strong, ISU could win 7, 8, 9 games. IF Jiri can keep playing the way he has especially, we may be dangerous. Either way, the future is so bright its blinding me.

    i think this team will continue to grow with maturity and confidence. look for a solid team at the end of the season that doesnt quite make the tourney...8-8

    8-8

    Big 12 is soft
    6 New Head Coaches in conference
    protect "Hilton Magic" win at home
    They will sneak up on somebody if maturity continues
    Look for home wins and road losses

    You're nuts and need to pass the pipe to me if you're serious. I hope I'm dead wrong and you can come back and waive your prediction in my face later, but to predict what you are predicting at this point in time with our current team is just short of insane. I'm no eternal pessimist but do some of you remember that we DID lose to every single other in-state team? I'd say that in general those teams are equivalent to the "middle of the road" Big 12 teams we are going to be facing every game from here on out. I'd buy 6-7 wins as being optimistic right now.

    Re: Conference season is upon us!

    if we play like we did against ohio state..then wow..if we play like we did against iowa...then its owwww.. so i picked 8-8


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."
