    Chances of being 14-2 going into KU game?

    I'd say 75% odds we can be 14-2 going into KU game. Tonight is a win against Chicago State. Virginia should be close. Depends on how we shoot on the road. Northern Illinios is a win. And Neb could be a win, again depending on how we shoot on the road.

    At 14-2... Tourney talk starts to become very real.


    The Hawkeyes, who have lost six of their last seven games, were given a No. 11 seed and will be involved in one of the four first-round games by virtue of being one of the last four at-large teams to make the field. “It’s not a &%#$@%* play-in game!’’ McCaffery said when a reporter phrased it that way. McCaffery then hurled a bottle of G2 into the face of the reporter stating "you #$%*&@ idiot!".

    At 14-2, we look pretty good.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    IMO, we will lose at least 12 games in conference play. NIT maybe but I doubt it.

    I'd say 10%. Both of those road game will be tough for us to win.

    Odds of being 14-2? I'd say 25%. That means we would have to win 2 games on the road against decent teams.
    I see us losing at least one of those games, possibly both.

    Re: Chances of being 14-2 going into KU game?

    I think that 13-3 is much more likely.

    40 percent to be 14 - 2. There is a 60 percent chance we beat Virginia and 80 percent chance to beat Nebraska, Chi State and N Illinois are wins.

    Re: Chances of being 14-2 going into KU game?

    I'd say there's about a 10% chance we start 14-2, and about a 1% chance we have to worry about the NCAA tournament. We're going to get abused in a bad way inside once we started playing real basketball teams.

    Re: Chances of being 14-2 going into KU game?

    Virginia had a close one this weekend against a team I didn't think was good, but didn't see it and don't even know that they arent good - only going by name. Made me feel better about our chances though.


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    Re: Chances of being 14-2 going into KU game?

    14-2 = 25%
    13-3 = 40%
    12-4 = 34%
    11-5 or less = 1%

    I think we will win one of those 2 road games. But, I think our chances of losing both of those road games are greater than winning both of them.

    Re: Chances of being 14-2 going into KU game?

    We are underdogs in both the UVa and NU games, so each of those games have less that 50% of us winning. kenpom gives us a 48% chance in the UVa game and a 32% chance in the NU game. By my (probably quite incorrect) math, that comes out to 20% chance to win both of them, which sounds about right to me.

    Re: Chances of being 14-2 going into KU game?

    I think 13-3 is probably the most likely and I don't think that'd be anything to scoff at. Especially when you think that up until this point we've beaten every team that I'd say we SHOULD have beat and gone 2-2 in games that could be considered even. At 13-3 even with a loss to VA or Nebby we still wouldn't have a bad loss in IMO. Tourney talk will still probably need to hold off until we got a signature win but wouldnt be unthinkable. Now that there are a few lower tier tourneys I think we'd have a shot with 18 wins. People tend to bash the cbi and collegeinsider tourneys but I'd love to see this staff get a few extra weeks of practice and get our young guys some tournament atmopshere experience, I'll be happy win ANY post season tourney.
