    ISU finishes 4 -12 (just a guess)

    With ISU's win tonight, we will likely finish the season 4-12 in Big 12 play. That is our identical record from last year, additionally we will be .500 at home and .000 on the road, same as last year. I ask than, what does this mean for ISU basketball? Did we make progress this year or simply spin our wheels? We will probably have the same record as last year which says to me we spun our wheels. Yet, we lost Wesley Johnson, meaning the rest of the team had to get better just to match last season. Should we have hope going into next season (please tell me I should) or should we expect another 4-12 in Big 12 play?

    Tell me why I should have hope because right now I am a very depressed Cyclone who can only remember days of old when we consistently went to the NCAA tourney. (the football team hasn't been helping my moral either but that is for another thread).

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    The duo of Brackins and Gilstrap keep my hopes up for McD.

    If you have a problem - if no one else can help - and if you can find
    them - maybe you can hire: The A-Team.

    Re: ISU finishes 4 -12 (just a guess)

    Well, wins usually allow people to think logically after a losing skid. Wesley Johnson's departure left ISU in a gaping hole. If Iowa State does finish 4-12 in the Big Twelve, it means they began digging out of the hole. Hopefully Brackins stays, and players like DG, Lucca, Booz, and Buck, mature over the off-season. The addition of Gilstrap will hopefully shed more light on the program allowing more options when one of the above mentioned are having a bad shooting night. I have no expectations for Colvin because I havn't seen him. Don't put expectations on a kid who hasn't graduated high school yet. Iowa State will continue digging out of the hole dug by Wayne Morgan, Mike Taylor, Wesley Johnson, and numerous others. Keep the faith, success is coming.

    If Brackins is back next year I expect us to compete for the NCAA's. I really do.

    I don't think there's any reason for us not to beat Texas Tech. They're another team that just tries to outscore the opponent, but they don't have as much talent as Baylor.

    I think CB will stay for next year, even though he still had a good game tonight... He still even showed tonight he still has some room to improve and would get eaten alive if he went to the NBA this year, he got those big dunks tonight because BU didnt have anybody to guard him, every single one of their big men were alot smaller than him and thats how he got those big dunks, besides that the rest of his shots were free throws, still alot of improvement on defense as well.

    CB will stay

    I know you aren't necessarily doing this, but having HB's picture in that post seems to be the kettle calling the pot black.

    I'm not expecting anything out of Harrison Barnes yet. I just want a good high school recruit to come to Iowa State.

    Don't think so...Pomlee, Christopherson, and a couple girls were in the front row of CA where recruits normally sit...

    I was counting beating Texas Tech at home to get us to 4 wins, with a loss at Neb. and a loss at A&M. Given the games against teams higher in standings are away and the one against a team lower is at home, this seems like the most likely outcome to me. (not my favorite outcome, but most likely).

    hope he brushes up on his Italian and French, because he will be playing in Europe. He's just not a NBA player yet. Not quick enough to be a 3 and not strong enough to be a 4.

    Maybe you are right and he leaves, but it will be a very costly ($$$) mistake if he does leave.
