    Where to go from here???

    Ok guys now that we are out of the so called Big 12's cellar, where do you think we go from here...... I know we all want an outstanding finish after the poor start but can it really happen...

    Our Outcomes:

    0-1 wins... Could be better/ Or very upset
    2-3 wins... Not a bad finish
    4-5 wins... Great finish
    6-7 wins... Freakin' amazing
    Win Big 12 Tourney... Greatest turn around ever

    I am thinking we will get 2-3 more wins, one against Texas Tech, the other or others against either K-State, Baylor, or Ok-State.

    What cha' got???

    No it's not. I predict no more than 1 more win, MAYBE 2 if we get lucky. I'm not a downer, just a realist. I've seen this team play too much this year. Looking forward to next year.

    Re: Where to go from here???

    We "could" beat Ok State Saturday. I'm guessing it won't happen, but it's winnable. Outside of that, I'd say Texas Tech is our best chance. I think we'll win one game and we'll lose one heart-breaker coming down the stretch.

    I'm just happy we most likely won't finish 12th in the conference. I prefer the 6/11 game in the opening round of the Big 12 tourney, too. If you're going to make a run, that's a great seed to have.

    Agreed...

    We definately have a team that is able to make a Big 12 tourney run....

    Except for the Kansas game, the rest of the games are winnable. But for the most part, we play well enough for 35 minutes, when we need 40 minutes. We don't finish games. I say we win 2-3 more games.

    We COULD win the rest of our games!!!!!
    We COULD lose the rest.....
    this team is nuts, i love em' but quite honestly, on any given night we have the potential to beat alot of good teams! Im a realist too, and i am being "real" when i say that this team is impossible to predict. How does a team play so well like in our games vs. OU, CU, Texas, and NU, but somehow find ways to get beat by teams like Drake and SDSU????

    Before the Colorada game, I would have agreed with you. For more than this year, ISU has had a habit of taking their foot off the gas when they get a lead under the pretense of taking some minutes off the clock but really all it does is take our players out of the game. Last night, they didn't slow down, they just gave more development time to players that needed it. I know that Colorado isn't a very good team but that is what we needed. The Cyclones did what they what they were supposed to do. Do it again, and the confidence will start to grow. Do it seven times in a row and you have a habit. That's what we need.

    Id still like to see ISU win a game they shouldn't. I want to see McDermott coach them up.

    I think we'll win 2 more games this season.

    I hope to win more.

    Re: Where to go from here???

    As an Iowa State fan this means one thing: I want to win EVERY game we play no matter what, no matter who we are playing.

    BUT, there is a small part of me that wants to lose out the regular season and win the Big 12 tourney just as a big "In your face Charlie Murphy" to college basketball.

    Plus - Did everyone totally forget that optimism after a win isn't allowed on this site?

    If we could some how weasel a NIT bid out of this year, although i do not think it will happen, I would consider that a huge turn around. Heck i would be happy with a win at Kansas
