    I can't think of a time when ISU sports have ever been better...

    Volleyball ranked in the top 10-Has shot at winning National Champ
    Girls Basketball ranked 24
    Men’s Basketball ranked 29
    Wrestling ranked 2- Has shot at winning the National Champ.
    Football is working on a bowl game

    I will even take it step further and say ISU sports are the best in the Midwest. I know football drives colleges, but overall ISU is very competitive in all sports and think of another school that is having as much success as ISU.

    Where are the people that said, we need to go to MVC to compete in sports? Look’s like we are doing a fine job in the big 12. Look who has got the last :biglaugh::biglaugh:.

    JP good work!

    I believe that both the men's and women's cross country teams are ranked as well.

    Where was ISU MBB ranked 29th?


    Also, 2000 was better. Men's basketball team had a shot at the NC, football team won a bowl game and was ranked. WBB made the sweet 16 and elite 8

    Will see at the end of the year, but this year is starting out better.

    Amen. Why worry about where it stacks up, especially before it all happens.

    Looks like the Next Big Step is going to be a fun ride..........

    What exactly has basketball accomplished? Or wrestling for that matter. Let's not get too giddy about preseason ranks. If these teams perform well this year and earns that spot then I'll agree it is a great year, not the best, but a great year.

    2000 was easily our most nationally relevant year. We were good in the 3 most visible college sports.
