    “They are definitely a tournament team.”

    The words of Bill Self. If he says we are. Then we are.

    Question is, how far can they go in the tourney? Amazing that this is the same team that lost to drake. So much better.

    A lot of teams have bad losses in the beginning of the year. Especially teams that lack veteran leadership or playing time together. This team will be at its best at the end of the year.

    Little-known fact - Bill Self chooses the entire field of 68. It's all him. So yeah, we are in...



    in all seriousness, if we get another at home against Mizzou or Baylor, OR sweep KSU, I would lock us in (assuming that we are at least a game or two over .500). There is a lot of season left to play - today was a good step after Texas loss.

    Best example: the ISU team that went to the Elite 8, lost to Drake earlier in that year.

    The selection committee always weighs conference games more than early-season games, and they like to see improvement and positive trends...and we definitely have the latter going for us.

    Re: “They are definitely a tournament team.”

    Beating KSU would be another feather in our cap. We still need a couple more so beating K-State and Baylor at home, would go a long way for our cause.

    Re: “They are definitely a tournament team.”

    I think we need maybe 5, possibly only 4 more wins...Where do they come, because we finish out the year with three tough games ??

    When we go to the tournament, I'll be there. And I'll be drunker than a peach orchard boar, as per tradition.
