    Some Optimism

    We have the same record as UNC so far!

    Granted, I know they've played a tougher schedule than we have, but I'm trying to be optimistic here. I wouldn't have thought they were going to be this bad this year. I know they're young, but still.

    Sorry, doesn't make me feel any better about this year. Maybe it would if we were national champs last year.

    Early leader for statistical post of the year!

    Yeah plus ISU didn't even win the National Championship last year. That makes it even better.

    No, just overall schedule. We've probably had a little tougher conference schedule, but UNC definitely had a tougher non-conference. Right now their SOS is 25 and ours is 119.
