    What is the "realistic" timetable for ISU to return to the NCAA tourney now?

    I think the realistic answer is 3 years.

    Normally would say 3 years, as far ISU has fallen I would say 4-5 now.

    I would agree with three years. Unfortunately.

    3 years. Would be my feeling.

    I hope that we have a monster recruiting class for the remainder of this year and for next year.....to get this ship going. But three years seems about right after how bad things got with Gmac.

    Just wait until they open it up to 200 teams and we'll be just fine!

    3 seems on the optimistic side of realistic.

    But I think if Hoiberg wants to build up steam in his program, the team needs to be within shouting distance of a bid even in Year 2 (next year is anybody's guess at this point).

    Fred will get plenty of slack for a while, but in the overall sense, there's almost more pressure. If it's 2013 before ISU gets back, that would mean seven straight years without an appearance.

    Re: What is the "realistic" timetable for ISU to return to the NCAA tourney now?

    Three years would be 2013, meaning that there would be an eight-year gap between NCAA tournament appearances. Think of all the kids that have attended ISU during that time without the chance to watch good MBB.

    Thanks Gmac for all you did to take us to the next level!

    Re: What is the "realistic" timetable for ISU to return to the NCAA tourney now?

    My guess, I could see a tourney appearance in 3-4 years. (probably the 4th though)

    I think we make a rag tag team run in year 1. I am imagining Minor League or The Replacements for this.

    With the style coach wants to play here (including the simplicity of it!) and the revival of hilton magic, i say we have a shot at getting in 2012...We will finally get our home court advantage back, with a chance to beat teams that have more talent than us.

    Re: What is the "realistic" timetable for ISU to return to the NCAA tourney now?

    I don't think 2 years is realistic because I don't think ISU has enough pull to get the elite point guard it would need to run the team.

    The guy we do recruit is going to need a few years to get to know the offense and league. A solid back court is a necessity and ISU probably won't have one ready in a two year time frame.

    2-3 years if this project is to be considered successful, or at least there be hope at the end of years 2 and 3 that year 4 will be the year. Otherwise, the fanbase will end up split again.
