    Re: Bilas has ISU at #53

    I think we are a clear NCAA tournament team. It's time for our team to improve our seeding. A 5 or a 6 seed isn't that unreasonable IMO.

    Re: Bilas has ISU at #53

    Thought we would be a little higher. Also, he has Texas 5 spots ahead of us which is strange to me considering we beat them already.

    Does he updated very often or not? This is from Jan 15.

    Looks like the transfer gamble is paying off!!!

    Not so fast my friend. At the present moment we are playing well but we also beat up on the worst team in the big 12 and barely beat an Ok St. team that is near the bottom of the conference as well. ISU needs some quality wins on the road to make the tourney.

    I agree. Fred's strategy really had analysts around the country shaking their heads, but it has proven to be a great plan to rebuild the program quickly from scratch.

    At home with their best player hurt most of the second half. Just saying.

    A lot of people are counting on Texas being a little bit like Kentucky last year (on a lower scale) where they improve leaps and bounds throughout the year since they are almost all freshman. That's why Tuesday's game is BIG!

    I'm not saying that we will be a 5 or a 6 seed but I do believe we are the 4th best team in the conference and should be considered more than a bubble team at this point.

    I don't have ESPN Insider so I couldn't see the list, but its hard to rank Texas higher than us given we beat them already and are 4-2 in conference compared to 2-4. I think we beat those guys again on Tuesday.

    Agreed, especially when the best way to bring in better recruits in the future is to win now. Besides, we lost so much talent to transfers previously, it was only fair that we brought some in to replace it.

    Re: Bilas has ISU at #53

    I think the ranking is legit but with one Caveat: just because you are in the top64 doesn't mean you will get in. Most of the time this is true but not always. In addition, there is a ton of B12 play yet to be played and what is most important of all is how we look at the end of the conference slate; not in the middle.

    Per the OP, Bilas was selecting the 68 he believes make the tournament as of now. On that account, 53 has us in.

    Not an RPI, but picking the field.

    Re: Bilas has ISU at #53

    I think we have to win some more games before we deserve this respect. We can still lose a lot of games.

    That being said I like what I'm seeing. One stat I caught the other night that impressed me is something like we've gone to the free throw line 170 more times than our opponents. Now if we could hit more shots! Seriously the last time we were known for that was back in the Floyd/Eustachy years. It's a good trend.

    Keep it up boys. Keep it up.

    A win is a win.

    Looking at Texas' resume, I don't see the quality wins there. Brand name has to help.

    I guess we will see on Tuesday!
