How Long????

Postby ndfan » Wed Nov 07, 2007 9:56 pm

Well the Bison football team is ranked #1 in the country in football already, I've been wondering how long do you think it will take the mens basketball team to crack the top 25 in the coaches poll?? Do it this year? couple years?? 5, 10, 15 years???

They have a slim chance to crack the top 25 at some point next year, but if they don't when this group of players is seniors it could be another 5-10 years depending on recruiting classes. You have to remember now that they are in the Summit League their schedule is going to be a lot tougher playing teams like Oral Roberts (beat Kansas last year), Oakland (been in the tourney before), and IUPUI is also a tough team. Their nonconference schedule will also get a lot tougher as well. I know they play some big name teams right now, but if a few year they'll probably play teams like Wichita St., Northern Iowa, Southern Illinois, and other top midmajors on a yearly basis.
