    What's more likely? Bowl game? Postseason Play?

    Given the tough schedule this year in football and the brand new basketball team...

    What is more likely in your opinion? Bowl game or postseason play (including NIT).

    My brain says neither one is in the cards.
    My heart says that BBall has the better chance to see some type of post season.... but I gotta say it's looking slim.

    Bowl game.

    If Royce gets eligibility this year then who knows?

    Re: What's more likely? Bowl game? Postseason Play?

    I don't see how we make postseason in basketball with our front court being as weak as it is. Even if we have Royce White playing all year, I see the NIT being a long shot. 2011-12 will be a different story.

    There's 6-7 possible wins to be had in football.

    i consider myself an optimist but you guys are on crack if you think any of our teams girls BB and VB aside have a snowballs chance in hell at post season play.

    Re: What's more likely? Bowl game? Postseason Play?

    Does the second round of the B12 MBB tourney count as postseason play? After the last four years it should...

    I think a bowl game is more likely but I could see Hoiberg pulling off a few upsets too...

    LOL i agree...

    I honeslty think we have a better team than we did last year for basketball. A bowl game or an NIT invite, would be great if we could pull on or the other off!

    Logic says a bowl is more likely. But I'm going out on the limb and say MBB postseason. Sneak in just under the NIT wire.

    I still think ISU will be 5-7 in football. Might be one of the best teams in the country that doesn't reach postseason.

    My gut says MBB will be right around the 13 or 14-win area (I'm not one of those who thinks it's a 10-win season. I just don't).

    Here's what I see happening. In mid-January, it'll look like we're headed toward another sub-.500 season. But in mid-February the team will start to click, surprise a few teams and string together some wins, maybe even win a B12 first-round game.

    It'll be too-little, too-late for an NCAA bid, but a strong enough finish to elevate above (ugh) CBI.

    I don't mind. I think that football has a decent chance to make it through this thing and emerge in a bowl game.

    If Royce White is somehow eligible, then nothing would surprise me for the young running basketball team.

    This is sad and funny at the same time.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    20 wins in bball is scary to think about while 6 wins is possible because we did it last year...I see your point...

    This is the way I see it too, actually 6 wins this fall is probably more likely than 15 wins in bball.
