    Andy Katz gives props to ISU's hopes for 2009-2010

    Good write up in his blog...

    Andy Katz's Daily Word: Ten programs that will rise in 2009-10 - ESPN

    For those of you who don't want to follow the link, we're listed as one of ten teams to turn around from last year... here is the write up:

    Iowa State
    2008-09 record: 4-12 Big 12, 15-17 overall
    Reason for optimism: Craig Brackins returns to the Cyclones, and he has the potential to be a Big 12 Player of the Year candidate and All-American. Add junior college transfer Marquis Gilstrap, and the Cyclones could have one of the best one-two scoring punches besides Kansas and Texas in the Big 12. Iowa State's Hilton Coliseum also is one of the best home courts in the country. Don't be surprised if the Cyclones knock off one of the big boys at home this season.
    What could happen: The Cyclones could pluck off a few key wins -- perhaps winning at least one game among Duke, Kansas (twice) and Texas to earn an NCAA tournament berth.
    What's likely to happen: Iowa State should improve to at least a nine-win team in the Big 12 and be squarely on the tourney bubble in March.

    This guy loves us. He's given us props at least once a week since college hoops has become in season.

    There is no reason to hate ISU unless we were constantly beating your team. I will never understand why anyone would thumb their nose at us. Glad Katz is on board.

    I think the national media really wants to love ISU basketball. We just haven't given them anything to love over the last several years.

    If we go 9-7 in the Big 12 and do decent in the OOC schedule, we are in the NCAA's.
