    how will you feel at the start of next season?

    Assume ISU doesn't do anything special in this year's Big 12 tournament and Brackins and Gilstrap both leave. What are your thoughts going into next season?

    I tried to cover all the range opinions I see on the site, but I doubt it will convey your thoughts exactly. So just pick the closest one or post your own.

    Re: how will you feel at the start of next season?

    I'm going with "I'm hoping for the best, but expecting the worst." With the inconsistency game to game we've shown this season, I want to think we'll be good next year with one more year under GMac's "system"... But in the end I expect another season of disappointment. I'll still be at the games though just in case.

    I will be really upset that I have to see GMac on our sidelines again.

    Re: how will you feel at the start of next season?

    I made my vote before I read in your post to assume that both Brackins and Gilstrap are gone. I have some hope that at least one of them will be back (Gilstrap). If we get at least one of them back, we should be able to field a pretty good team and be looking at the NCAA tournament next year.

    Starting at birth I was brainwashed by my parents to blindly follow ISU, so of course I'm excited for next year!

    Regardless of who the coach is, if you are are a true Cyclone fan you always want to see ISU win.

    Getting either one of them back would be huge, and I would love to see it. It's just for me it seems like the most likely scenario has both of them leaving.

    I've been reading that there is a very good possibility that there will be an NBA lockout in 2011. I'm sure they're aware of this, and I can't imagine them taking another year at ISU and then risk not being able to play in the NBA once they graduate.

    I wouldn't blame either of them for leaving, but I would be thrilled to have either one of them back.

    Re: how will you feel at the start of next season?

    I always have hope at the beginning of the season. I guess thats what being a Cubs fan does to you.

    Though, I would actually have expectations for the team do well if Gilstrap or Brackins were to come back.

    Re: how will you feel at the start of next season?

    This will be another horrible season. 6-7k per game. Players look lost. We win another game like the K-State game, and he'll get another year. **** this!

    Re: how will you feel at the start of next season?

    Hell, it can't get much worse than 4 wins each year. Who knows, maybe less talent and more "togetherness" is what the team needs!

    We will be better. I'll go ahead and make that gaurantee. Rather its 5 or 9 big 12 conference wins, I think having a senior point guard will be HUGE.

    Re: how will you feel at the start of next season?

    I voted for the first option, but that's more because I know I'll work myself up into an optimistic frenzy waiting for the season start like I do every year than because of any realistic opinion of the team. Right now I'm somewhere in between 1 and 2; there's hope that things will turn around, but I realize that it's more likely that they don't.

    So you would rather spend a ton of money we don't have to get a new coach, and then set the program back yet another 3-4 years in hopes to get the new coach's system in that works?
