    If no big12 team makes the Sweet 16.....

    ......I will be a happy man. I'm hate watching our conference rivals still playing when ISU is sitting home. I hope they all fail, and quickly.

    Disagree. If they all bomb out early it reinforces those who under-seeded the big 12, making it more likely to happen in the future, possibly putting us in Colorado's position in the future.

    Not me. I would rather the committee feel they made a mistake by leaving a Big 12 team out while putting in 7 Big 10 teams and 11 Big East teams (McEnroe: You cannot be serious!!!). I hope that the conference makes them look like buffoons, not reinforce their decision as the right one.

    Although I do not love CU, I would like to see them make the finals of the NIT to spite the committee as well.

    Disagree. Although I don't "root" for rivals, having no Big 12 teams in the field means other conferences have more. When it comes to something like this you want your conference to represent. Now, the Big 10 not having any teams in the Sweet 16???? I'm all for that.

    Just because the big12 is under-seeded this year(which I don't 100% agree with) doesn't mean the same thing will happen in future years. ISU can easily avoid the Colorado position by simply winning more games, and don't lose games to bad teams when sitting on the bubble.

    I'm gonna chear for the Big 12 teams (even the Kansas State Jacob Pullens that I hate), and for the Big East and Big 10 teams to get destroyed.

    I will also cheer for UNC and against Duke.

    So you want the Big 12 to look bad, which in turn makes us look even worse? Makes sense

    It is Iowa State's conference, not mine. I like it when the big10 fails, because it ends the Haaaaawwwwk-talk about how they played in such a tough conference. But that is it. I have no real conference homerism in me. When KU won the title a few years back, I puked for 6 weeks straight.

    I don't care if the others make the conference look bad. I don't care if some people think it makes a team look worse. It doesn't affect me.

    We went 0-8 vs. the big12 NCAA field. I want these guys to join us as quickly as possible.

    KU is pretty much a lock to make at least the elite 8 or final four...as long as no team pulls UNI before that

    Since the Big East got 68+% of their teams in this year I hope the Big 12 gets in 7 of 10 teams next year.

    In 1993, 6 out of 8 big8 teams made the tourney, so 7 out of 10 isn't impossible.

    Uh, you'd better think again.
    FYI, revenue from the NCAA basketball tournament is distributed by conference, with each conference getting a share for every team that gets in, plus one share for every victory.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/04/sp...ll/04ncaa.html


    "The N.C.A.A. distributes money to the 31 conferences with teams in the
    tournament in the form of units. The units are calculated by taking the total pool in the basketball fund — $167.1 million this year — and dividing by the number of teams in the tournament plus the number of games played (except for the championship game) during the past six years.
    "This year, there are 752 units worth $222,206 each."


    So, the more the Big 12 teams win, the more $$$ for ISU. Care to revise your opinion?

    If you didn't know who would have guessed that OU didn't make it that year but kNU did?
