    The next two are pretty much must wins

    We really haven't beaten anyone that is a tourney caliber team yet except for Texas, who will be a bubble team, but if they make it, our chances are probably actually lower because I don't see the B12 getting 6 this year.

    We'll be fighting K-State and UT neck and neck for 4/5th spots in the conference. These two are pretty much must wins.

    If we lose one or God forbid two, you can still get in, but our margin for error will be next to nil.

    How many must wins have we had this year? I think the count is at 8.

    Must win is overused.

    To quote Marv Levy, "World War II was a must win." KU is just another game.

    Well when you start off with 3 OOC losses and a week non conf schedule, you paint yoursefl into a corner where you have to win a lot of games in the conference. We are 4-3, so I'd say we're getting to the point where we can't lose many more home games.

    Re: The next two are pretty much must wins

    To repeat what I said in another thread, according to ISU fans the MBB team has had so many "must win" games this year that they might as well put the I-State logo right next to the term "must win" in the Book of Cliches.

    Labeling every single game a "must win" is what gets people saying "season over" in the middle of a poorly played game, even when there's a significant portion of the season yet to be played.

    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    Nope. We could lose the next two and win out and be just fine.

    Really sick of the phrase must win.

    If we lose the next two, the odds of us winning at Mizzou and K-State, along with sweeping Baylor would be roughly 5%

    Why do we have to win those 4 games if we lose to KU and KSU?
