    CBB's Top 10 Sleeper Teams


    Came across this little gem this morning. Take a gander at #1 on this list. Also Iowa pops in at #5. So if they are final four sleeper potential what does that make us?

    We are ranked 14th in the nation. There is nothing sleeper about us.

    Perennial NCAA teams from a power conference aren't sleepers. Sorry, we will never make this list.

    A 3-week old article seems very relevant at this point in the season. I'll look forward to seeing how Boise's trip to Lexington goes next week. :skeptical:

    This should be a very good game for ESPN. It ought to be a lot of fun to watch. Hopefully BSU doesn't get crazy hot from three point range. And hopefully it will get us back into 90+ scoring, as well.

    Hard to tell if gingers are awake or sleeping since they are so pale. Easy to see how they made the list.

    After watching the BSU game last night, the Cyclones will handle these guys fairly easily. I'm looking to our second half beatdown.

    Have to disagree. That team can flat out shoot and score, I think we will win but this will be a very tough test. We are hot right now, but it will take a BIG effort to win this. Can't just expect to "show up" like Akron or GM.

    I don't understand the obsession with gingers. I'm not offended but I don't get it. Yes, I know Iowa has a couple...big deal.

    ISU is on an upward trajectory right now in every area - one day break to get Matt and Naz back on their game from 3 and I like our chances. I think this turns into a bloodbath about 3 minutes in to the second half - we'll just wear them out and take away their second-chance points by out-rebounding and getting stops when we need it. Boise will put some points up but we are just a more balanced team overall.

    Agreed. It was funny at first but it is overdone now.

    Kind of like "Baylor just dunked again". Funny has a shelf life. I admit that it had a long shelf life with me for some reason.
