    Okay he made clutch FT's one time, that doesn't make him a clutch player overall. If the game was on the line with Iowa's starting 5 on the court, I can almost guarantee you he'd be the 5th player on the court that I would want taking that shot.

    Yep. With every growing year in the Campbell era the team will get a little more talent and a little more depth.

    So his AP vote carries more weight?

    Like I said, just like last summer.

    I mean if you think Iowa State is going to be 21st or worse in the Preseason AP poll you're in for a rude awakening

    Ok. I’ll bite. Which of these 15 teams will ISU be ranked ahead of in the 2020 preseason coaches poll?

    Clemson
    Alabama
    LSU
    Ohio State
    Oklahoma
    Georgia
    Penn State
    Oregon
    Notre Dame
    Wisconsin
    Auburn
    Florida
    Michigan
    Minnesota (just had a better season than ISU ever has had and returns a bunch)
    Texas A&M

    Remember this is preseason polls. I know you’re going to trot out PFF but I can point out athlon which has way more history.

    I'm talking about an actual source like the AP poll not one single AP voter. We'll have multiple AP voters put us in the top 10 this upcoming season

    Any thoughts about the Auburn game? I think it will be close, but not sure who wins.

    You have been referring to ISU as preseason Top 10 ever since McMurphy released his a week ago. Thats only one voter.

    Preseason polls are about perception, not reality. AP voters aren’t going to perceive ISU as better than any of these teams. ISU is 20-23ish in the preseason polls. Similar to Iowa. Now if you want to argue they will be higher postseason, maybe. That’s a reasonable argument.

    McMurphy has his own poll he puts out not just some ballot when he's time to submit. I changed it to top 15 anyways which is probably more realistic since people will be down on us after the bowl game
