    big 12 next year

    can we honestly look and see us being in the bottom of the big 12 next season? no, we won't be good, but oklahoma has basically a completely new team with a 7 man recruiting class, nebraska is nebraska, we get tech at home next year..we will probably be within the bottom 10 but i dont see us dead last yet.

    Re: big 12 next year

    No, because there won't even be a Big 12 next year.. Now, if we're talking about the MAC or MWC, then the answer is still no.

    Seriously, I don't think we'll be dead last, but I see us as probably the bottom 3 or 4 teams.

    Re: big 12 next year

    We only have two players left from last season and no one coming in that's better than a 3-star. Talent-wise, there's no doubt we're last in the conference. Sure, Oklahoma is in poor shape also, but they have some guys that were a little more highly recruited, like Cameron Clark.

    Re: big 12 next year

    maybe im drinking too much of the kool-aid already, but we get both oklahoma and tech at home. plus nebraska and colorado arent all that hot either, so we have a chance for a home win there. i really think that we wont get blown out this year, like last year (with exception to the KU and baylor games). i think that we can stay competitive, at least.

    Re: big 12 next year

    i think next year is gnna look a lot like last year record wise. might not have the same overall talent, but the big 12 will be down a bit from what it was last year.

    Go ahead. I certainly don't see us as the least talented team, and our style will bring a much more definite home-court advantage.

    We won't win the conference, we won't finish last. I think we can be a .500 team or just above, and get a nice surprise win along the way to building this thing back.

    First, establish of a style of play that will excite the fans. In other words, play up-tempo.
    Second, win the non-conference games that should be won. In other words, don't lose to a North Dakota school.
    Third, beat Iowa. In other words, beat Iowa badly.
    Fourth and last, fill Hilton.
    It's all on Fred's shoulders. He has what it takes.

    Re: big 12 next year

    IMO... anything other than dead last will be one heckuva coaching job. It will be ugly.

    I think a lot of people really underestimate how little we have?

    No matter what anyone thinks of DG, it will definitely help to have the senior leadership at the point. I think we will surprise.

    Wurd.

    Without DG I would have absolutely no expectations for next season, with him I think we'll at least be fun to watch and have a signature win...like beating Kansas at home on a buzzer beater.

    What would be cool is that we have a '95-'96 type of season with the new fellas and win the whole freaking thing. Oh....that would rock you!

    I will never write a season off before it even starts. You never never know. Stay optimistic and take one game at a time. The 9-year old little boy in me says we can win it all! Don't ever lose that! Go Cyclones!!!
