    What do you expect?

    I would really like to know what you guys think our record will be next year and some different things. Other then the record, what else do you think this team will bring to the table? I know Fred will pack Hilton with butts in the seats. How much improvment do you think we will see from last year? Do you think the new up-tempo style of play will help us in the long run?

    national championship, duh.
    all joking aside, a winning record, with 5+ big 12 wins, matters who we beat but a possible NIT berth

    I choose 15 wins exactly... ****! I can't vote in this poll!

    Re: What do you expect?

    i'm with jdogg, I think 15 is pretty spot on of what I expect. I would guess about 10 nonconf win and 5 inconf. Greg was horrible in the big 12 and the style of play change may throw some teams off of what they were used to from I-State and we should catch some teams off guard and also I don't know if the big 12 will be quite as amazingly strong as last year.

    Expect to be close to 500 over all. Will never be happy until we are above 500 in B12 play. It may take some time.

    Re: What do you expect?

    Going into next season - no expectations. I'm not saying that the season is a wash, but I won't be bothered if it doesn't end well. I want to see player improvement and see our coach develop.

    Re: What do you expect?

    I expect to see a team identity emerge that never happened under the previous coach. I would expect based on what I know of Hoiberg that we will see a new level of individual and team effort. I would expect that a Hoiberg coached team will make up for any lack of size, speed or skill with pure hard-nosed play. I believe Hoiberg's first season will easily surpass the previous coaches worst season. I am not expecting to see them play in the NCAA or NIT Tournaments.

    Re: What do you expect?

    That's a tough over/under.. I was going to say right about 15 wins.

    anyone with the expectations of an NCAA tourney bid for ISU next year is out of their mind, unless they go to 90+ teams and even then, huge stretch. NIT would be a VERY welcome change of pace/improvement, but still quite doubtful IMO.

    Re: What do you expect?

    Yeah... the over under is in a tough spot... It'd be nicer to list a range of wins either each number listed... or group every two wins... but yeah... you're really close to my placement of the over under.

    My goal right now is for a winning season (16? games) After the first 4 games... I'll be excited and think we can win 20 games. Then... likely when big 12 hits... things will get rough and we'll end up at 15.

    But who knows... maybe the Mayor gets these guys clicking really well by big 12 and they surprise teams in the Big 12.

    That's why we play the games I guess.

    Re: What do you expect?

    Obviously I haven't seen our non-conference schedule yet, so this is hard to predict. But 15 wins would be a pretty good achievement when you consider the roster situation. We might have some nice talent coming in, but 5 of our 10 scholarship players will be Freshman. You can't expect 5 freshman to do too much unless you are paying them and they are wearing maize and blue.

    Re: What do you expect?

    Personally i want to see a team that plays well together and a team that plays like it wants to be out there. I think Fred will have them going.

    Re: What do you expect?

    Talk to me in October. No idea what the roster will look like next year yet.

    I would be disappointed if we were as bad as Iowa was this year.

    Re: What do you expect?

    I will be happy if we win 12-15 games! I can handle a not so good season considering the circumstances as long as I see continued improvement.
