    Those predictions are obviously wrong. There is no way Iowa will finish that low with Woodbury.

    Well I don't see us behind Kansas State or Baylor. But that's just my early prediction.

    K-State returns almost everyone and Baylor will always have top 5 talent.

    That was pretty interesting to look at. I might have to take a look at this guy's blog and bookmark it next college basketball season.

    They will have to adapt to a new coach and likely style of play. I don't think they will drop off but they won't be the same K-State.

    It will be interesting to see K State completely change their identity. Their hallmark has not been to wow you with their skill or execution but to be tough and physical.

    Are you refering to K-State because they lost Martin or are you saying Scott Drew is a bad coach. Either one works really.

    Could go either way. In an abundance of caution Scott Drew just called a timeout.

    The woodbury part is an unknown but, I think 5 is a SAFE pic against us. I believe we will do better than 5.

    I also believe EIU is in the spoiler spot if people are really picking them that low. (yes my fingers were spontaneously combusting as I typed that).

    I agree we will finish better than 5. Im thinking we finish at 4 with Kansas, Oklahoma State, and Baylor a head of us. I don't know how anyone could pick K-State to finish before us with Martin gone. Even though they are returning a lot, I think the loss of Martin will be too big for them to finish higher than 5.

    I can't be the first one to notice that the OP spelled "conference" wrong in the thread title. Seriously?

    I think we will do better than 5, but I wouldn't be mad finishing 10-8. We'd still make the tourney and if we were to run through a stronger non-con schedule could be somewhere in the realm of 20-10 which would be pretty impressive.

    So, even statistical analysis is biased against ISU? Man, it really is us against the world.

    (I should note that I'm not saying I agree with us finishing 5th, just that... you know... it's math, not opinion)

    To be fair, it shows us as tied for fifth with Texas. If Frank Martin was back I could see KSU having a chance at a good record, but I just don't have much faith in Weber. I doubt we finish below them.

    I'd say tied for 4th. Only three teams ahead of Texas. Not a bad place to be.
