Gotta love the preseason posturing by each fan base here.

I will be a realist for ISUr as a fan. Our incoming Freshman savior pg is out 6-8 weeks with a stress fracture during the most important time for his development learning the offense and defense. We also lost our sharp shooting recruit from California, Zack Copeland, before the season too.

My hopes are not high for us this year. I am hoping for 10-8 or something around there.

I doubt we finish here, but I am trying to be realistic here. Guessing 5th or 6th.


I think your bottom 3 are clear. Everyone else is battling for position on a league that will likely get the 13 or 14 seed in the NCAAs

A lot of change and adversity for you guys right now. The stress fractures can be frustrating. Hopefully the medical staff stays on top of it and gets him back in there at the proper time. The Shocks have a couple of players out right now with stress fractures as well.
