    Ron Maly disses 2010 MBB

    Who peed in his Cheerios? I'm fine with people doubting us, but this goes a bit far. Does he not know how we are poised to be much improved?

    The way I look at it, anyone who mentions Iowa State's men's basketball team and the 2010 NCAA tournament in the same breath has been spending far too much time in the tailgate area before the Cyclones' football games, slurping far too many bloody marys in the third tent. The Cyclones and their fans had better be realistic and concentrate on having a record over .500 before talking about the Big Dance. They'd better learn to beat Drake first. Greg McDermott hasn't even done that yet as Iowa State's coach. The Cyclones have lost their last three games to Drake. And McDermott hasn't yet had a winning season in Ames--going 15-16, 14-18 and 15-17. At some places, those are records that bring the wolf to the door. You know what? I don't think the wolf is that far away. Big Dance? Dream on, Cyclones. First, you'd better worry about winning at the Knapp Center in Des Moines and Allen Fieldhouse in Lawrence.

    Honestly...he has a point and I'm fine with it. It's up to us to show up first.

    Who is this guy? He should be important before I care.

    Edit: I just clicked the link. Why does a Brittish man from Cedar Rapids care about ISU?

    He used to be a sports reporter, IIRC.

    Save your self the time....

    Try and find something he says GOOD about ISU.

    (waits)

    Now you know his modus operandi when it comes to ISU.

    heck - the rant today is that JP changes the start time of OUR game so he could watch Wisconsin/Iowa. Maly is worthless. He lives in his own little black and gold universe.

    Re: Ron Maly disses 2010 MBB

    He kind of echos my concerns as well. While I think ISU will be much better than last year, I think some ISU fans are completely over hyping this season/expectations. The Big 12 is going to be vastly improved, as will the Cyclones, but I feel some are over hyping based of the addition of Gilstrap and Colvin, as well as the development of last years players over the off season, none of which has been proven on the court yet.

    Does he have a point? Yes.

    Do I care? No.

    Honestly, I should - but I'm buying the hype on this team...fully aware it may come back to bite me.

    Re: Ron Maly disses 2010 MBB

    Like I said, I'm fine with doubters, but this seemed over the top. It makes him look uneducated about the team, as it's almost universally agreed (even by non-Clones) that we'll be improved.

    Wow. He's so good, I've never even heard of him. Funny how he tries to dismiss us, though. In all seriousness, the guy needs to find a tooth brush.

    Re: Ron Maly disses 2010 MBB

    FWIW, a long while back I had stumbled upon some of his old articles/blogs. Was interesting to read some of his predictions after things had played out.

    IIRC, the guy has been pretty accurate.

    He wrote a lot when I was younger. ON stone tablets.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    First thing that I've read this morning that makes any sense.
