    ISU "suddenly surging"

    Last entry from Katz.

    More of a condemnation of A&M's slide than a nod to ISU, but any press beats no press.

    Here's what we learned on Saturday - College Basketball Nation Blog - ESPN

    The more you win, the more you stay in the conversation. It's been so rare in January for most of the past 10 years, might as well enjoy it

    Re: ISU "suddenly surging"

    Not to be a debbie downer, but about 50 teams were referenced in that writeup. Hopefully the conversation gets a little more focused on us in the future afters some Ws.

    Yes, it wasn't that impressive. It was just a mention.

    Got another one here, in Weekly Watch (with fewer than 50 entries):

    Weekly Watch: Week 5 - ESPN

    It'll mean a little more if people are posting links like this a week from now, of course.

    Not only that but if you listen to Andy Katz he references that as his spotlight wednesday game and says that ames could be a trouble spot for missouri and that Iowa State is certainly playing good ball.

    Great comments to hear, you win that game and let the announcers start throwing your name around on saturdays, thats how you get the at large bid...we need wins but also wins over top 50 teams. I have seen pub's that have our RPI at 44 right now...the higher the RPI the better your chances if your a bubble team...

    In my mind we need 10 more wins and our schedule over the next month is brutal - missouri,, at KU, okie st, at tech, at texas, ku, ksu.....thats a tough schedule...gotta get some wins in this stretch and that wont be easy....get 3-4 wins in this stretch and people will be talking about ISU....

    We HAVE to beat Mizzou. I think it's as close to a must win as you can have this early in the conference season.

    Re: ISU "suddenly surging"

    Wednesday night will be a good way to see how this team is progressing, winning at A&M was a great, now getting a win against Missouri at home will really stoke the fire.


    Go Cyclones!!

    Re: ISU "suddenly surging"

    We should out rebound Missouri 2-1, we just need to hope their guards are not shooting to great. And we will be much more successful if we feed the beasts down low and try to get their very few bigs in foul trouble.

    No, a must win was the Texas and A&M games(both unranked) Mizzou is not a must win at all. It's a great chance to gain some notariaty but not even close to a must win. Must wins are the teams we should beat to get to those 10 conference wins, you don't put a top 20 team in that category.

    10 conference wins means NOTHING without good wins involved. We have to beat some good teams. As of now, we probably haven't beaten an NCAA tournament team. You need to review the NCAA tournament criteria.

    We can obviously lose this game and still make the tournament but it will be a major uphill battle. I repeat, 10 wins (the number) in conference means nothing if it's against the bottom feeders.

    I agree that Texas and A&M were pretty much must win games. We can't afford to lose to average/poor teams.

    There aren't enough bottom feeders in our conference to get us to 10 league wins. If we win 10, we will have some quality wins under our belt.

    Didn't realize A & M was rated so well preseason. They sure didn't look like it Saturday.

    Yeah. If you win 10 games in the Big 12 you have some quality wins in there somewhere.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Must win for what?

    To be a successful season? No
    To make the tourney? No
    To finish the season ranked in the top 25? No.


    "Must win" is one of the most overused and incorrectly used phrases in sports. In no way is the Mizzou game a must win.

    Agreed. If we beat Mizzou, then we can start talking about the big dance and Hilton Magic.

    Hopefully they have no answer for White. I would like to see us go big against them and take them out of their game a little.
