The weirder it gets, the more lovable they become. ... While Baylor looks like a dumber version of Kansas — tall, gifted and careless with the rock — these Cyclones seem more and more like the Cleveland Indians from that first "Major League" movie, the perfect patchwork of young and old, one heartbeat. Individually, they’re not much to look at. Collectively, they’ll run you ragged. ... Whether it’s confidence, faith, or some crazy combination of the two, this is an easy bunch to like because it has flaws, knows its flaws and simply schemes around them. The Mayor’s "Magnificent Seven" — the five starters plus Bubu Palo (one steal) and Calvin Godfrey (nine points in 18 productive minutes) — have more feistiness than a box of angry badgers. ... They won’t always be this pretty. But the more you see of this team, the more you start to believe that there will be more days, magical days, just like this one.

Keeler: Don't try to explain these Cyclones, just sit back and enjoy | desmoinesregister.com | The Des Moines Register The Des Moines Register' Sean Keeler heaps a whole lot of love on a Cyclone team that's easily the most fun to watch since the 04-05 Iowa State squad decided to start beating everyone.
