I am going to be the downer (realist) for everyone. ISU was not going to sniff the NCAA next season WITH WJ, now without him I hear people talking about getting into the NCAA tourney? Either you all have such faith because of the kool-aid or everyone thinks all these guys that have never played division 1 basketball before are going to be world beaters. Please everyone temper your expectations, you will be the ones on this board next season asking for ADJP and McDermott to be fired.

Um no. I am not one of those folks who calls for coaches heads. I feel its ok to have expectations. Whether they are met or not really doesnt effect me past a day, before Im ready for the next game already. I think we arent going to be as bad some think. Wesley is not the team no matter what some may say. His departure gives others a chance to step up and test what they are made of. For all we know..Lucca could be a rebounding monster. Players can really surprise you when it comes to doing something outside of their role on the team..
I don't expect us to make a run at the NCAA, but if the team can pull something together a NIT bid is very possible. I think this is mainly because the kids coming in the last two classes have been proven at the high school level and know what it takes to get where they want to be. Look at this incoming class, all of the players, at least the ones out of high school, made it to their state tournament and did some damage in it. I'm not saying we will be good this year, but in the 09-10 season teams are gonna have to watch out for us!
