    Newest SI (11/23) writes that ISU.....

    In the newest SI (11/23) on page 100, they have 2 teams predicted under "Cinderellas Who Will Dance Deep Into March", one is Gonzaga & the other is our beloved ISU Cyclones...."Iowa State/ Conference playerof the year candidate Craig Brackins (20.2 ppg last season) and junior college transfer Marquis Gilstrap (22.6ppg) give the Cyclones one of the best one-two scoring punches in the Big 12."
    My only question is this, how can they go deep into March if on the previous 2 pages, they are NOT even selected as 1 of the 65 NCAA Tournament teams???????
    P.S. Has anybody else stopped laughing so hard yet about the Iowa Hawkeyes basketball team have lost their 1st 2 games (at home none the less)???? Does anybody feel sorry for them????? (Still laughing hard!!!!)

    Different writers, different opinions. I would say that one of them is actually watching some games this season and one of them is just looking at the past few years...

    I always thought a Cinderella had to be from a mid major conference and not from a power conference? Anyway, love the positive pub.

    Not to nitpick, but it does say scoring combo, so it's a bit less shocking.

    I guarantee if you write them a letter pointing this little inconsistency out they will publish it.

    You realize both of those things could have been written by different people right? So one guy thinks we're going deep and then the other guy (or consensus among people) are like "nah.."

    I remember after last year's game, one of those trailer trolls said he was sure glad they had Licklighter as he was sooooooo much better than McDermott. I think intramural dodge ball will outdraw them this year. Har Har!!
