    Next year

    What do you seriously expect this team to do and perform like. No Kool-Aid and most important with your brain not your heart.

    I expect this team again not go to the NCAA BUT possibly the NIT. I believe things will be corrected and and the players jell, no not like Dr. Schoals but come together more. I still believe we will have will have issues, but most will be addressed.

    Re: Next year

    If McD is back with the recruits we have, I expect a bubble team on the outside looking in ending up in the NIT. That would be fair and enough to buy some hope for the 2011-12 season with some of the recruits he is in on.

    Now that is what I would say is required for McD to not have too much heat; I would wager a lot of money that next season will be more of the same: defections, excuses and losses....lots of losses. I bet we pick up 1 more Big 12 win than we did this year, maybe 2, but that puts us at what, 5-11? Not good enough in year 5 for me....


    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.

    Re: Next year

    Brackins and Gilstrap or NO Brackins and/or NO Gilstrap?

    A couple of pretty big questions

    Brackins and Gilstrap I believe they both will be back. If a new coach, then I will say not

    As Roy Williams would say, "It can't get any worse."

    I have a hard time understanding people that say Brackins will be back, but I've been wrong before.

    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Absolutely not. No way they both come back. If they did that would solve what to do with GMac: give him one last year with all his guys.

    They have nothing to gain by coming back. Come back to a lame-duck coach and not go to the tourney again, turn down millions when if they wait, there is a very big chance there is going to be a lockout in 2011, meaning if they don't jump now, they could be missing out completely.

    Nope, they gone and rightfully so. They deserve to get paid as they both have put in their time and tried to put ISU in a position to succeed but somethings were just not meant to be...

    Brackins and Gilstrap sure don't seem like they are coming back. Without them, we are right where we are right now. Same song, 5th verse.

    Re: Next year

    Is there something I'm missing on Gilstrap, as I thought there was very little chance of his returning? What is there about his situation that would prompt the NCAA to make an exception?

    Nope, these opinions are just based on the generous and forgiving nature of the NCAA.

    If Greg returns we will not win a game in the Big 12. If we have a new coach, I could see possibly 6 wins and a NIT berth. I'll take that!

    Brackins is still projected to go in the first round. Zero reason for him to return. Zero chance the NCAA gives ISU a break on Gilstrap. 13 wins on the season. Welcome to year one of the Lame Duck Era.

    If McD really does come back, that is the best way to explain it.
