    What a wonderful world this would be...

    ...if, over the next 12 months, all this happens at ISU:

    The football team wins eight regular season games and wins its bowl game.

    The men's basketball team places in the top three in the Big 12 standings, plays in the Big 12 Conference tournament finals, makes it to the Sweet 16 AND Harrison Barnes commits to ISU.

    The volleyball team continues to be impressive by winning the Big 12 and doing well in the NCAAs.

    The women's basketball team wins the Big 12 and the Final Four.

    The wrestling team wins the Big 12 title, beats Iowa in dual meet competition and for first place at the NCAA National tournament.

    Gymnastics has at least one NCAA champion.

    Men's and women's track has several Big 12 champions and NCAA champions.

    The softball team places in the top 3 in the Big 12 standings.

    Yeah, I know, lay off the mushrooms. But a fella can dream can't he?

    How would your perfect ISU year go?

    A perfect year for me would be for both the FB and MBB teams to be perfect and go undefeated.

    If only half of what the OP predicted came true, it'd be a good year.

    Yep, you're right. Sort of like some Michael Jordan-Tiger Woods infused Kool-Aid.

    We'll i'm not an expert, but speaking about perfection in hypotheticals I would have to say that going undefeated in every game would be my perfect Cyclone season.

    Guarantee you many would still find reason to complain (MontyBurns) if the OP's post came true.

    Based on the past few years of existing as a Cyclone fan, I will re edit....

    The men's basketball team places in the top three in the Big 12 standings, plays in the Big 12 Conference tournamentfinals, makes it to the Sweet 16. Tim Floyd comes back as recruiting coordinator.

    Harrison Barnes commits to ISU. Harrison Barnes commits to not beating ISU 3 times while at Kansas for 1 year.

    The volleyball team continues to be impressive by winning the Big 12 and doing well in the NCAAs. They are the one team that does develop a new uniform

    The women's basketball team wins the Big 12 and the Final Four. Women's BB team continues to represent ISU in proud fashion when they forgive Steve Deace for calling them on air, a bunch of butter faces...

    The wrestling team wins the Big 12 title, beats Iowa in dual meet competition and for first place at the NCAA National tournament. The Wrestling team gets DQ'd from nationals for burning bags of poo on Cael's new doorstep.

    Gymnastics has at least one NCAA champion. No sweeps crazy local TV crew (uhm, that's you know WHO) does ANY story even related to their success and how they were influenced by Shawn Johnson.

    Men's and women's track has several Big 12 champions and NCAA champions. For fun, the track team set up a 20 yard dash with Jamie Pollard vs a Tiger. The Tiger wins....

    The softball team places in the top 3 in the Big 12 standings. They have a softball team?

    Yeah, I know, lay off the mushrooms. But a fella can dream can't he? Agronomy department develops new strand of shrooms that enhances performance, for all types of activities...

    How would your perfect ISU year go?
