    Why not? You might not be dreaming? It's all very possible.


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

    That's a lot of work for late on Saturday evening, but more power to you...

    I'm going on the safe side and saying we go 5-3 to finish. Beat aTm, TT, OU, and Okie St. Win at least 1 vs. Mizzou, Baylor(2), and K St. Finish 22-9, 12-6. Pretty cool when that's on the safe side. March Madness baby!

    Re: Can ISU win/tie the big twelve? Lets look.

    Watching the game again. We have sooooo many weapons. How do you really matchup with this team? We got 4-5 guys that can fill it up from outside, you can't leave....Allen, Scotty, Babb, Booker, McGee and even Melvin people try to help off of and he is killing people for doing it right now. Royce is an impossible matchup. This is exactly the type of team that could make some major noise in the tourney because we shoot the ball so well and are so unique. It just makes it very hard to stop.

    Missouri matches up with us pretty well but other than that, you gotta have 3 really good guards that get after it defensively and a big guy that can hold his own with Royce without needing a ton of help. Very very few teams fit that description, and even the ones that do will struggle with us.

    It just makes it very very hard to get stops against us with a lot of consistency and is going to make it tough to beat us down the stretch.

    I am not saying we won't lose any more games, in fact I think at OSU is a real tough game and they could beat us and I wouldn't be surprised at all. Any game is losable in conference though.

    I think Baylor has major problems trying to defend us. I just don't see how they match up well with us at all.

    I think to beat Missouri, we need to get Royce off early and get Ratliffe in foul trouble. Baylor's athleticism and length worry me a bit. I think we can take both of them, but we have to have more focus on the defensive end (inside).

    Re: Can ISU win/tie the big twelve? Lets look.

    "I'm going to follow in the footsteps of everyone else on this post. We Magically win the Big 12. We then get a #2 seed because ISU gets no respect. We Beat in this order, UC Santa Barbra, Michigan State, Duke, Ohio State,(Duke is #3 Seed),Kentucky, And to Win the National Championship we beat HB and UNC. Not sure if that is the right amount of Tourny wins to even be in the Championship but that is exactly how we win it. For good measure I say we beat UNC 104-41. Heard it here first"

    From The Mens BB Predictions thread back in October. I dont look so crazy now do I?
