94. Iowa State CONFERENCE: Big 12 BEST PLAYER: F Craig Brackins QUICK TAKE: Brackins is a big-timer. But will he get enough help this season? BUZZ: Brackins is one of four returning starters for a squad that also hopes to get significant contributions from a handful of touted signees. Iowa State should be able to compete with most Big 12 teams as long as Brackins is playing well. Still, for the Cyclones to move up in the standings, they need another player or two to step up offensively.
They have Iowa 134
134. Iowa CONFERENCE: Big Ten BEST PLAYER: G Matt Gatens QUICK TAKE: Coach Todd Lickliter is finding that it's a lot tougher to win in the Big Ten than it is in the Horizon League. BUZZ: A lot of roster turnover happened at a bad time for Lickliter, whose team looks certain to miss the NCAA tournament for the third consecutive season. This season could offer signs of the overall direction of the program. The Hawkeyes will be carried by two Lickliter recruiting classes; only one player on the roster predates the signing class of 2008. The performance of such a young roster could mean either good news or bad news for Lickliter's future.
What an amazing statement. So artfully constructed, succinct and intelligent.
Green hills for thy throne, and for crown a golden melody/Ringing in the hearts of all who bring thee love and loyalty/Dear Alma Mater, make our spirits great True and valiant like the bells of I-O-WA STATE!
