    So I was just thinking, The 95-96 team (with Cato, Pratt, Bankhead, etc.) won the big 8 tournament after being picked last in the league that year. It was also the year before the conference went under some alignment changes. Flash forward to this year. We are picked last in the conference, and next year will be a new look Big 12. Maybe I'm just crazy.

    Pretty sure you're crazy. :wink:

    Stranger things have happened, but I believe we need to brace ourselves for a long year.

    If White is eligible, if Railey/McKnight can bang and rebound, if DG becomes a steady floor general, etc., etc. Those are a lot of ifs. I'm thinking 15 wins will be a success this year. Hope they surprise me with more than that!

    I don't think we have a Dedric Willougby (sp?) on this team.

    And nobody, with the possible exception of Tim Floyd, had any idea whatsoever as to how good Cato, Willoughby, Pratt, etc. would end up being in the fall of 1995. Cato and Willoughby were transfers from mid-majors and Pratt was a lightly recruited JUCO.

    I was at the first home game of the 95-96 season against Central Conn St (?). ISU did win but I walked out of Hilton thinking that crew would go 0-14 in the Big 8 that season.

    Are we sure Kenny Pratt doesn't have any eligibility left? :confused:
