    Is it? I know the average homer fan will say yes...but someone that knows basketball, well is it? They don't look good against decent teams. Very sloppy. I'm hoping this team can get 18 wins and make the NIT. Just not enough fire power this year. Missing Royce, Scotty and even Allen is going to hurt us this year. I know some homer fans may get upset, but you have to look at it as a regular basketball fan.

    I thought we looked much better last night then we did one year ago at this time.

    I guess what I'm saying is can this team go 10-6 in conference play?

    I'm going to guarantee that this team doesn't go 10-6 in conference play. And the last time I checked, there is still 4 months of the season left. Who the hell knows if they're a tournament team right now. That doesn't matter.

    If the tournament started tomorrow, then no. But it's only November. Give them a little time.

    Luscious needs to improve and we need to shoot better. Our team sucked last year early too. Don't get to down. It's very very early.

    I'm not impressed but we will make the tourney, just go nowhere unless we somehow click. I see we are trying Clyburn running the point. Problem is he is no Royce!

    I mean you have to look at it like this. I understand we all are Iowa State fans, but look at it from a regular basketball fan. Right now we are a 17 or 18 win team making the NIT.

    Remember when we lost to Drake last year? Calm down... We've played two ranked teams in two nights very early in the season.

    Way too early for this discussion. My only comment is that Loucious needs to be a point guard, not a shooting guard.

    Is Selection Sunday this Sunday?

    No?

    Well, I guess they have time to correct things then.

    Right, because they had SO MANY quality non-conference wins last year.
