    Official Men's BB Bracketology Thread

    I had an idea that now since we are being discussed as a tourney team that we could use a thread had some predictions from different sites and other people on CF opinion.

    Do you think we'll get in? Would we be in if the season ended today?

    I think we'll squeak in...atm I see a 10-8 conference record. Would be nice to get a win Tuesday against Texas so we can say we swept Texas, a contender for a bubble spot as well. I've been looking around and am seeing anywhere from a 10 seed to being not in.

    Bleacher Report- vs. Virginia

    CollegeHoopsNet- play-in game vs Memphis

    bankrollsports- play-in game

    statjunkie- first team out..look to see percntage of getting in


    Hoops Report- vs San Diego St.


    Anyway, I'm not saying we are in and/or we will go far in it, but it's fun to be getting discussed.

    It's not an official thread unless there are at least six (6) asterisks in it. I'm sure it's in the user agreement somewhere.


    That rug really tied the room together, did it not dude?

    In order to get in at 10-8 we will need a win over Baylor, Kansas or Mizz IMO. So let's take care of that next Saturday

    Not true. Sweeping Texas, A&M, Okie St, OU, and TT gets us to 10 wins. But that might be the most uninspiring 10 wins possible and could result in ISU's bubble getting burst.

    I think you made my point. We need a quality win, especially if we finish 10-8. OU,OSU, TT, T a M won't get us any points

    Yesterday on Gameday, Lunardi had us as the last team in the field. That was before our 24 point win at TT.

    Actually, my point all along has been the nonconference schedule was so pathetic, including damaging losses to Drake and UNI, that 10 conference wins isn't going to be enough, even if it includes a pickoff of one of the top 4 teams. I think ISU needs at least 11 wins.

    You mean "other top 3 teams." Tied for 3rd puts us in the top 4 teams right now.


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

    Again, you're harping on the Drake loss way too much. Losses in early November usually don't have a lot of effect, especially when the whole team is new. If the committee sees us playing well down the stretch, I bet that Drake loss won't hurt us as much as you seem to think. The last 10 games means an awful lot more than losses in early November.

    Tell that to Virginia Tech, who got ****ed over by the Tournament Committee 3 consecutive years because they played such a **** nonconference schedule. The almighty ACC schedule and reputation couldn't overcome the damage that was done before the conference schedule.

    I agree that the Drake loss in itself isn't horrible. But combined with the patheticness of ISU's nonconference schedule, it won't be ignored come tournament time.

    Re: Official Men's BB Bracketology Thread

    It's refreshing to even be in the discussion. Hope we're in even better position 6 weeks from now.

    I could dig getting the shot as 10 vs. 2 w/ Kentucky (as I posted elsewhere yesterday) and like our chances in 12-5 vs. UVa.

    Personally, I might put ISU still out, perhaps First Four Out. Bad losses that might not kill the resume, but only one semi-quality win vs. UT.

    Need to win the next two, for starters.

    I figured if it gets to selection sunday and we are a bubble team then the asterisks can come out..

    I predict Big 12 will get 5, Big Ten probably 7 (possibly 8).
