    WBB: What about having UConn in the Big 12?

    There's another thread on realignment, this one saying that Cincinnati and UConn will join the Big 12. Big 12 realignment is back...looks like real changes coming soon. Whether true or not, would people like to have UConn in the Big 12 for WBB? It could help with recruiting and get Baylor...

    WBB: True fans

    Credit to all the Cyclone fans who keep supporting the WBB team -- through thick and thin, for better, for worse, in good times and bad, in injury and in health. I caught part of the Iowa WBB game at home vs Ohio State last night. The box score says 3600+ fans. The photos don't show near that...

    WBB: Former Big12 Teams

    It's interesting to keep tabs on the teams that left the Big 12. All except Colorado seem to be having a good year. Colorado did well last year, but is struggling now. The Pac12 is odd this year. (Stanford scored 4 points in a quarter and has twice scored in the 30's this season.) Not...

    VB NCAA Tourney

    So ISU gets Miami in the first round hosted in Madison on Thursday. If we win, we likely face Wisconsin on their home court. This is in the Lexington region. So we did not get in the Des Moines region. Minnesota is the top seed (#2) in the DSM region. Was the thinking that we might get into...

    VB roster changes

    In the article on the new letter winners, I noticed a couple of the freshmen VB players missing. Sure enough, go to the roster, and a couple of the 2014 players are no longer listed on the team. Rachel Manriquez -- probably not a surprise given Berta's play Maria Fruechte -- would have like to...

    VB vs. TCU and Nolan, Kuhrt

    It was a hard fought match against TCU. The Cyclones could have won all 5 sets, but let TCU get the edge at the end of the first and fourth. That was uncharacteristic given recent play in tight games. However, in the sets we won, we dominated. It would have been disastrous to lose the match. I...

    14-15 WBB Bracketology

    Creme has posted his preseason bracket. He has ISU as one of the first four out. Like preseason rankings, it's hard to put much stock in these things. However, it's amazing that Iowa State does not get more benefit-of-the-doubt given...

    VB picked third in Big 12

    The Cyclones are picked to finish 3rd in the Big 12: Behind Texas and Kansas. Maybe not surprising. Lots of unknowns with this team. If they gel and get back to some of their key strengths, and newcomers...

    Future Final Four for ISU WBB?

    Setting the loss aside and thinking to the future, especially given the talent coming back and coming in, what will it take for ISU WBB to make it to the Final Four? Can this be a realistic goal, like it seems to be for MBB now? Will setting that as a goal, not just a dream, get this program...

    WBB: Comparison with Nebraska

    Seeing that Nebraska WBB keeps getting some decent wins, compiling a pretty good record, 20-5 overall and 10-3 in the Big Ten, I wondered how their team compares to ours. My impression was that they had a star in Jordan Hooper, in the realm of Hallie, but otherwise had graduated their star...
