    Hypothetically Speaking... (Tourney)

    The way to early to talk about it part in me doesn't want to talk about it but...

    Which 2nd/3rd round tournament site would you think that the committee would place us in?

    Omaha would be the obvious choice, but I'm pulling for Columbus because of my ties to the state.

    Thoughts? Does anyone honestly care?

    I want Omaha. I really want Omaha.

    Columbus is fine. I can try to price it in and make a side trip to Cincinnati for some personal sight-seeing. Maybe even cross the river to Covington, KY.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.

    Don't care... just make it there first.

    Would not go to it unless it would be in Omaha, however.

    Re: Hypothetically Speaking... (Tourney)

    If ISU somehow finds their way to the Columbus region I may try to find my way to see a game there. Depends on whether I can scrape the $$$ together and other mitigating circumstances.

    Do you guys really think we're going to compete in conference play without a very skilled PG who can drive the ball in the paint?

    1. The thread title specifically said "Hypothetically Speaking" - that throws any shred of realism out the window.

    2. Perhaps, if we find someone who can run the offense. It doesn't have to be a PG.

    Debbie downer alert! Your answering a question that was never asked.

    Omaha would be perfect, there would be a huge turnout.

    We competed in the B12 last year and we weren't very good if that's what you mean by compete. You make it sound like we'll get continually blasted like Iowa.

    I think I'd be willing to go just about anywhere. I've been starving to see us in the tournament for a long time.

    See the question mark at the end of the sentence? That means I'm asking you guys a question on whether you think we'll be able to compete. I know a lot of people have high hopes this season and I'm wondering with what we saw in the last game, has their opinion changed?

    Not yet. I liked what I saw.

    The real noncon barometers, as far as I know right now, will be @ Michigan and in Ames vs. Iowa. How we handle Iowa's press will be telling.

    I think it will give us a couple of problems, because presses create problems, but nothing outlandish. Hopefully, I'm right.

    Re: Hypothetically Speaking... (Tourney)

    I know if we made it to the big dance that I would be there. It would have to be within reasonable distance (probably not California/ Washington or Florida) but I am sure I could scour for a cheap flight but it would be pretty hard to find something cheap on such short notice since I would find out on selection sunday.




    I WAS THERE!!!!!!

    It depends on where we play, but I badly would want to be there. I'll consider selling one kidney, and maybe both, if I can pay for the consequences somehow.

    Maybe the offense that has been installed doesn't need a point guard....
