    What do you want to see from ISU sports in 2010?

    By all accounts, this has been a pretty good 2009 for Cyclone athletics. What would you like to see in 2010?

    I would have to put down:
    1. Big 12 North title
    2. Beginning expansion on JT
    3. MBB win the Big 12
    4. WBB win the Big 12
    5. Gymnastics to win a few or hire a new coach (not really a Gymnastics fan, but I hate to see a program to such a nose dive)

    Any other thoughts, feel free to ride along.

    A championship. I don't care in what or if it's a national, conference, or division championship, I just want to be champs. It's been a while (outside of wrestling but in that case the only real champs are national champs).

    Re: What do you want to see from ISU sports in 2010?

    1. Football beat Iowa
    2. Football win Big 12 North (or: beating Coloradol, K-State and Kansas. Nebraska looks to be a difficult game)
    3. VB goes to Final four
    4. MBB goes to NCAA (although NIT would be more realistic)
    5. WBB goes to Sweet 16 (NCAA will be more realistic)

    I try to be as realistic as possible but can't help feeling more hopeful, hopefully good surprises are in store this year

    1. Football goes to another bowl.
    2. MBB goes to the NCAA tourny.
    3. WBB goes to the NCAA tourny.
    4. VB Elite 8 or better.
    5. Wrestling national champs, or runner's up at worst.
    6. Probably won't happen but I'd like to hear an announcement about JT renovation.

    Good point!
    However, at this point, I won't be too picky.

    7. VBALL- final four finish next year.

    Re: What do you want to see from ISU sports in 2010?

    I want to see national championships. Since outside of wrestling it's unlikely, here's what I think would be really nice to see.

    Football - another bowl game, OR win either @Texas or @Oklahoma. If we could win one of those two games, I could handle missing a bowl. In fact, I think that win would mean more to our program than another bowl game.

    Men's Basketball - Make the postseason.

    Women's Basketball - Win a game (or two or three) in the NCAA tournament

    Wrestling - Runner-up or better for the national championship

    Volleyball - Make the Final 4

    The rest of these I just kind of BS'd and looked at last year's performance to guess and picked something that would seem like an improvement..

    Gymnastics - Finish the season ranked (23rd preseason)

    Golf -
    Win an invitational

    Tennis - Win 2 conference matches

    Men's T/F - Win one event at the conference meet
    Women's T/F - 6th or higher team finish at the conference meet

    Cross-Country - Top 3 finish at conference meet

    Swimming/Diving - 4th or better at Big XII meet

    Soccer - Go 0.500 on the season

    Other - Beginning of JTS expansion

    CycloneDave25 to learn how to spell tourney.
    Grapplers win a national title.
    Gridders beat Nebraska and Iowa enroute to a Big 12 North title and Top 25 finish.
