    Re: Big XII Shootaround

    I don't this year will be that horrible. CU and NU aren't impressive. Oklahoma didn't take only one step backwards.

    We won't win the conference, but I think we'll look a lot better than we have recently.


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

    can it really be worse than the past 4 years?

    No. Our guard play will be better with Jake and Demarcus joining Scott and Diante.

    Ejim will add a very athletic 3 that likes to play defense.
    We'll be young, but we have some talent now, and can rotate some guys in and out. That's not a bad spot to be.

    Re: Big XII Shootaround

    I guess they're not excited to see Ejim in his freshman campaign, but I'm not all that surprised. I do think he's going to be a great player based on the little I've heard/seen about him and he should be one of the bright spots to this year's team.

    EXACTLY!! At the very least I'll be able to look at the man on the sidelines without wanting to beat my head against a wall.

    I was a little surprised not to see him on that list too.

    I don't know if anyone bothered to click on the links on the left. This one was pretty interesting.

    I especially liked the part about Julo being from Turkey. The columnist barely placed him in the right continent!

    Re: Big XII Shootaround

    Time for a quote from the late James Gammon (Lou Brown in the movie Major League) who sadly passed away on July 16th of this year: “I'm not much for giving inspirational addresses. I'd just like to point out that every newspaper in the country has picked us to be last. The local press seems to think that we’d save everyone a lot of time and trouble if we just went out and shot ourselves. Me, I'm for wasting sportswriter’s time. So, I'd like to hang around and give them all a nice big ****-burger to eat.

    Go Cyclones!!!

    Re: Big XII Shootaround

    While I think we can maybe start sniffing some kind of post season in 2 years......

    next will be an extremely painful year of basketball.... I really hope we have a bowl game to keep us entertained.

    With the brutal schedule the football team has this year, I'd say we have a better chance at being a decent team in basketball. I'm not saying we'll be in the middle of the Big 12, but I don't see 9 or 10 out of the question. We're thin at the post, but I think we have enough quality guards, plus Ejim, to at least be competitive. We can at least beat Nebraska and Texas Tech.
