99 in 99: #97 Iowa State Cyclones

Fred Hoiberg Iowa State

It is day three of our “99 in 99” series previewing a college basketball team every day leading up to the start of the season.  I know what you are thinking, it is WAY too early for this isn’t it?  SHUSH!  It is never too early to start talking college basketball especially you are as big a nerd as I am.

I promise I have nothing against the people or state of Iowa.  I have many friends who are either from the state or currently reside there.  Unfortunately, your major conference state basketball teams will be two of the worst in the country this season.  Iowa drew the 99th ranking, Iowa State earns #97.  Sorry.

If you haven’t had a chance to see either of the other two videos he’s posted in the last two weeks via YouTube that led up to this announcement, please do check them out.  This one in particular, posted two days prior to the announcement video, should strike Gopher fans, and fans of sane non-annoying human beings, as concerning.
