    The volleyball program announced that, again, they are inviting fans to Johnny's in Hilton Coliseum to watch the selection show with them this Sunday afternoon. Just wanted to make sure people who might be interested saw that this was happening. Hope we get to host 1st and 2nd round games! Beating Texas will go a long way in determining that. Am pulling for ISU to be placed in the Berkeley region (for purely selfish reasons - so I have another excuse to go!).

    From the Cyclones.com article: AMES, Iowa – The Cyclone volleyball team invites fans to join the Cyclones at Johnny's at Hilton Coliseum on Sunday, Nov. 25, beginning at 2:45 p.m. CST, to watch the 2012 NCAA Tournament Selection Show on ESPNU. The selection show is slated for 3 p.m. Fans may enter Hilton through the Southeast doors.

    Go early and cheer on the wrestlers at 1:00 pm. They need to get on the right track for '12-13 season.

    Chances pretty good that we get to host the Opening rounds?

    Wish I was in central Iowa. Good opportunity to check out Johnny's and support a great ISU program.

    I say the chances are 50-50, and I know CJL is not counting on us hosting. Coaches are saying that the selection committee is not married to RPI rankings (to seed teams) as in the past, so that's good news for us, perhaps...

    Agree that it's still a coin flip at this point. If anyone has a question on whether or not the selection committee pays attention to ANYthing other than when their coffee break is, they just need to look at a few years ago when the top FOUR Big 12 teams were all placed in the same region. Hopefully our play since the first weekend in October shows we deserve to host (only one loss since then, on the road to Texas, in 5 sets).

    Are there examples of non-top-16 RPI teams getting selected to host? If there are (or if that may be a new mindset), one would think ISU is the perfect candidate, especially given the win streak and the top-5 wins.


    Unfortunately, I also recall that the vball committee has made a habit of coming up with at least one (if not more) highly debatable decisions in the bracket.

    Wherever ISU plays, I sure as heck wouldn't want to play us right now. I would think there might be pressure on the committee to not put us in Omaha or Minnesota, since we would threaten the higher seed, having beat Nebraska earlier in the year, and beat Minnesota in last year's regionals.

    Your first question is a good one - I do not know. And yes, the committee has made some very debatable and controversial seeding decisions over the years, not just those involving Big 12 teams.

    Not sure how much yesterdays big win will play into this. I'll bet they already had this done before the final matches. I think our 10 match winning streak should account for something but I thinking it is just as likely that we will get screwed. Wildcard might be our coach who is respected and recent ISU success in NCAAs.

    Will this be on ESPN3? It looks like it's blacked out, but I wonder if there's something I don't know.

    I just want to watch, but I'm settled in at home.

    15 seed. In same region as #2 Stanford. At least ISU starts at home. Good, right?

    Is there anyway to see the brackets? I have been looking around and have been unable to locate any news.

    Berkeley Regional! So excited, considering this will probably be the only time I'd get to see the Cyclones in person (in any sport) all year.

    If any of you are planning on making the trip out here and have any questions about the area, feel free to shoot me a message!
