    2/10 Bracketology

    Bracketology - NCAA College Basketball Brackets and Predictions - ESPN

    Even with the loss we are still a 9 seed and we would play our future Big XII friend West Virginia.

    Re: 2/10 Bracketology

    I would not be heartbroken if we lost a few more games and ended up with an 11 seed. It should go with out saying, I would love to win a bunch and end up with 5 or 6 seed.

    Re: 2/10 Bracketology

    I'd still love to see a 12 seed...Don't get me wrong, I'd also love to see us win out and grab the highest seed possible but 12 seeds seem to flourish in the Tourney


    My hate is not limited to just the Hawkeyes, I have plenty to go around for the Jayhawks and just Hawks in general.

    Re: 2/10 Bracketology

    I'd rather be a 10, 11, 12 seed than an 8/9 seed.

    Would obviously really like a 7 and lower seed though.

    I think we'd all love to see that type of underdog seed that insulates us from the powerhouse 1 & 2 seeds, but it's a very short and slippery slope from 12 to NIT. I don't want to sweat that out during the selection show. Just win, baby.

    This is true.

    I think it makes sense. We just gotta stay above KSt and Tex in the Big 12 standings.

    Re: 2/10 Bracketology

    Doesn't make sense for Gonzaga and Vandy to be so much higher than us (both 6 seeds). I think ultimately we end up around the 6-8 range with 5 Big 12 teams making the cut.

    Re: 2/10 Bracketology

    Just keep winning. I hope no one is wishing we lose more games so we can get an 11 seed. That's just dumb. Win as much as you can and get the best seed you can. This Iowa State team can beat anyone. I'm not worried about who we play.

    The part I don't like: playing WVU in Pittsburgh...that is practically a home game for them.

    I want anything that is not 8 or 9, but 12 or lower.

    K State won't catch us but Texas might.

    Kinda agree with you, keep winning and get in. I don't really care about the seed that much. As long as we are one of 64 (no, I don't count the play in games) I'm thrilled.

    Getting back to the dance after the last decade of crap would be awesome. That plus what we're looking at for a team next gives me the most optimism I've had for the bball program in a long long time.
