    9:50 mark in podcast. Says ISU is the B12's second best team and has the best chance, along with KU, to make the Final Four among B12 teams. The radio guys lead him to say KSU is the conference's next best team.

    Hopefully this link works.

    I liked it better when we were just a scary team, not a favorite. This gives me expectations and stuff. In my experience with those, I leave disappointed.

    I'm the opposite. I love the national coverage. It's pretty sweet to turn on the radio in the middle of KU and KSU country and hear someone brag on Iowa State.

    I get you 100% but I'm over being the little engine that could.

    Me too. We got up to the Top Ten and weren't quite ready to take everyone's best shot. I have a feeling we'll be back there in a couple weeks and will have a chance to correct that.

    The national recognition is really cool to see but I feel like the team always plays better when they have that "Us vs. The World" mentality

    No 2 is either Texas or us. KState is fourth at best.

    I think that is a transitional phase along to where Fred is taking us.

    I guess I never looked at us like that. Nothing really surprised me (outside of Freds ability to coach right away) but it was cool to be that team that was a sleeper and not the team expected to challenge KU. Good news-Projections will have us about 5th in the conference next year when we lose Kane and Ejim so I will be happy and condescending again.

    That's all well and good but the time we start feeling all warm and fuzzy Huggie Bear goes and hands us our *****. I prefer hungry over content.

    That game didn't surprise me. In fact, I didn't even watch it. I thought it would be a 10-15 point loss...not a million.

    I always feel like we play better when we're passing the ball at our top level and Kane & Ejim are making 75% of their layups.

    people complaining on ISU not getting national recognition, and when it finally rolls around people down play it and wish it wasn't so.

    I wish people would get over that game. Everything went right for them, nothing for us, move on.
