    Must be an error. ISU doesn't get respect.

    ISU Women maybe. Not men, surely.

    that's surprising? aren't we picked to finish 7th or 8th in the big XII? so that means there is 6 big XII teams in the top25?

    Re: ESPN the Magazine Ranks ISU 29th

    Does it just give their rankings or do they have any kind of blurb on the teams? Just curious as to what they (ESPN) wrote about us, if anything.

    Thanks in advance!

    what?! u got urs today bogus i donthave mine


    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."

    Re: ESPN the Magazine Ranks ISU 29th

    Uh oh, look out folks, there are real expectations this year.

    29th doesn't mean an NIT bid. I know that there are section of people on here that are doing all they can to limit expectations. The problem is, if not this year, when???

    So let's make sure that we have expectations, and believe that this team should win 20 plus games, go .500 in the Big 12, and make the NCAA.

    Anything less than that, in the fourth year of a coaching staff, would be a huge disappointment.

    Fortunately, I think we are good enough to do all of this.

    I honestly haven't noticed any of these people. Everybody expects to win this year and they should.

    I could not care less where they rank us. Nor could I care if there were 1969 fans at every game calling for Greg's head and desperately searching for why he is full of mistakes.

    We'll get it done this year, this is going to be a fun season of ISU men's basketball. I can't wait to get through the riff-raff and onto some measurable competition.

    It honestly wouldnt surprise me. Big 12 will have two teams in the top 5. Probably 4 in the top 15.

    Re: ESPN the Magazine Ranks ISU 29th

    Do they rank the Big 12 teams? I would be curious where the writer thinks ISU will finish up in the Big 12 with a preseason ranking of 29...

    Re: ESPN the Magazine Ranks ISU 29th

    If ISU is ranked 29th in the ESPN the magazine poll, then why is ISU not ranked in either the AP poll or the ESPN/USA Today poll? Not receiving votes in either. Northern Iowa does in both polls, but not ISU. Something is fishy here IMO.

    Nothing fishy, the people that rank the ESPN magazine poll are different than the people that rank the AP poll and the ESPN/USA today poll.
