    Sorry, I've been told by numerous hok fans that Cook and Moss won't be missed.

    If MJ can improve his 3 point shot that will drastically change how teams will be forced to guard us. We have more pieces than most realize.

    My biggest thing is I know so little about the 19-20 team at this point, to the point where I’m not expecting much right now. So, if a national guy (even if it’s Lunardi) has us as a #5, sure, why not.

    You're consistent, so I'm cool with it.

    It's almost like an ISU fan would say "we" and "our" in this statement

    Has us as #52 and 17-14 overall. I think that's much more likely than a 5 seed, but that's not bad at all and I don't fault anybody for thinking we'll be a tourney team next year.

    Any idea what he had us predicted pre-season last year?

    Like in the 20-30 range?

    Despite the people saying we had a disaster of a season, we ended up #16 on BT.

    That seems pretty fair with where things stand right now. That's squarely a bubble team. Would take some individual improvements (looking at you Zion and Terrence) and/or a freshmen exceeding expectations (my guess is Tre Jackson) to make the tournament but nothing crazy. I also think adding an immediately eligible Bolton bumps that projection up a bit, but not as significantly as some have suggested.

    Stop doing that!

    Every time you say MJ, I get excited thinking Jordan is playing for ISU and then I wake up.

    ;)

    Meh. I try to avoid inserting myself into teams I follow but don't play or coach on. Even though I am an Iowa State alum that goes for Cyclone teams too. Still a fanatic though.

    Don’t be an idiot, you’ve said “we” when referencing the ISU basketball team before.
    You can’t keep switching “They” and “We” for too long before you get caught.
    For example, post #161 in this thread:
    https://cyclonefanatic.com/forum/threads/early-thoughts-on-next-season.247119/page-9#post-6616015
    You said this:
    There’s plenty more examples in your posting history. Don’t be a hypocrite.

    Lmao, just a suggestion, there is a thread about lawn care, or may I suggest the Cougar in Des Moines thread, or even the Cubs thread? I don't care what you do, my god get a hobby or do something, I dont care what.

    Don’t get mad you got exposed.
    Just accept it and move on.
    My hobby right now is called “read jereseib’s posting history to see how many times he gets confused on what team he is cheering for”.

    I’m still trying to process that there’s a thread based on Lunardi’s pre-summer bracketology. He doesn’t know **** about basketball.
