    Who peed in his Cheerios? I'm fine with people doubting us, but this goes a bit far. Does he not know how we are poised to be much improved?

    Honestly...he has a point and I'm fine with it. It's up to us to show up first.

    Who is this guy? He should be important before I care.

    Edit: I just clicked the link. Why does a Brittish man from Cedar Rapids care about ISU?

    He used to be a sports reporter, IIRC.

    Edit: For the DM Register...39 years.

    Save your self the time....

    Try and find something he says GOOD about ISU.

    (waits)

    Now you know his modus operandi when it comes to ISU.

    heck - the rant today is that JP changes the start time of OUR game so he could watch Wisconsin/Iowa. Maly is worthless. He lives in his own little black and gold universe.

    He kind of echos my concerns as well. While I think ISU will be much better than last year, I think some ISU fans are completely over hyping this season/expectations. The Big 12 is going to be vastly improved, as will the Cyclones, but I feel some are over hyping based of the addition of Gilstrap and Colvin, as well as the development of last years players over the off season, none of which has been proven on the court yet.

    Does he have a point? Yes.

    Do I care? No.

    Honestly, I should - but I'm buying the hype on this team...fully aware it may come back to bite me.

    Like I said, I'm fine with doubters, but this seemed over the top. It makes him look uneducated about the team, as it's almost universally agreed (even by non-Clones) that we'll be improved.

    Wow. He's so good, I've never even heard of him. Funny how he tries to dismiss us, though. In all seriousness, the guy needs to find a tooth brush.

    FWIW, a long while back I had stumbled upon some of his old articles/blogs. Was interesting to read some of his predictions after things had played out.

    IIRC, the guy has been pretty accurate.

    First thing that I've read this morning that makes any sense.

    He's got a point about worrying about beating teams like Drake first... but then saying that we should be worrying about beating KU in Lawrence before talking about the NCAA Tourney?? Umm... if we do that, I think we'll be talking about more than just getting into the Dance... :yes:

    My point is, I'm not going to relate beating KU to getting into the NCAA's. KU is going to be extremely tough this year.

    I thought that was odd, too. Doesn't every team in the Big 12 have to worry about winning in Lawrence?

    I agree that he has some points, and that we haven't done anything yet, but I just thought some obvious bias was thrown into that paragraph.

    They change the rules at Lawrence. How the hell are we supposed to win there?

    Someone related to Mac must have kissed Ron's wife.

    I wish this off-season would have been quiet, kind of like before the 99-00 season(I hope Gilstrap makes contributions close to what Tinsley did his first year with all the hype going around)...but that's what msg boards are for. I think a lot of people are going to be giving their hopes up with these high expectations. I can see a bit of a struggle early on b/c I think this team will try to force a lot of things, but they should settle in by conference play.

    I resent that statement, not because he dissed the basketball team, but because I tailgate in the 3rd tent every week and know one of the guys that helps put that on and furthermore, he makes one helluva Bloody Mary.
