Maybe we should take a closer look at inbreeding here as Cyclone fans. Kentucky two years ago, Louisville this year, Kentucky possibly again next year, and then you add in the Iowa national football title that is expected this season and that is a lot of success from the inbreds.
According to this, Lunardi expects the Big 12 to be weak next year. Highest ranked Big 12 team is 3 seed Kansas. This was even updated today which means he did this knowning Marcus Smart is returning to Oklahoma State.
If you go by seeding, Lunardi has ISU finishing 5th in the Big 12 Conference:
1.) #3 Kansas
2.) #4 Oklahoma State
3.) #6 Baylor
4.) #8 Kansas State
5.) #12 Iowa State
6.) "Next Four Out" Texas
Why would it? One bad game doesn't change a thing. Iowa will still be a darkhorse B1G championship contender, and Iowa State will be lucky to make the NIT.
If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls
