With all the talk about if Lickliter is the answer, does he deserve an extension, etc. I thought about something that could give us some much needed schadenfreude, and the Cyclones are usually good for that. Sure, they beat us in basketball this year, but I can't imagine a team in the state (or Big-12) underachieving relative to their hype this year. We all know the situation at CHA (or at Welsh-Ryan tonight, man that sucked). For those of you who don't know here's a quick run-down of what I'm talking about in Ames:
Craig Brackins decided not to declare for the NBA draft last summer, touching off a massive love-fest and hype extravaganza in Ames and Des Moines. I lived in DSM last summer and was thoroughly annoyed with it.
Lucca Steiger decides not to return to Europe for a pro career.
McDermott was expected to have his best team and the best team in recent memory at ISWho.
The reality is that they aren't that much better than Iowa, but with much more alleged talent.
So whose seat is hotter and why?
