    Next week is huge!!!

    If ISU goes to Waco and beats the bears at there house and ISU goes home and takes care of business against Oklahoma i think we move from a bubble team to an at large bid. Im drinking alot of cool aid now, probably too much but i think with two wins next week we will also be ranked and possibly move up to a better seed around maybe 6 or 7. If we did win those games that would put us at:

    20-7 overall
    10-4 conference (3rd place by ourselves)
    Big wins: Kansas, KSU, Texas, OU and @OU, @Baylor

    Just my opinion

    Beating OU do not qualify as "big wins".

    OU at home probably not but i think @OU is a good win, maybe not a big win by the committees standards

    Right now, it's about maintaining momentum. Every win is big. Baylor is a huge opportunity, but not absolutely crucial.

    I think any road win is a "good" win, but OU is 84 in the RPI. I don't think that qualifies as a "big" win or a "key" win or whatever else you want to call it. Being "not horrible" isn't much of a standard.

    Win against Oklahoma, Tech, and K-State and one Big XII Tournament game and we're in, I think. If we also go 1-1 with Baylor or get a win against Missouri I think we get a pretty decent seed.

    IF we win out at home we make the tournament.

    4th place teams in the B12 are not bubble teams IMO

    Ordinarily no. But if ISU beats Baylor, taking care of business against OU is win #10, which is the threshold most are convinced for NCAA certainty.

    By that standard every win is a "big win" because you can't get to ten without any single win.

    Also, it seemed to me the OP was talking about "key wins" from a selection committee perspective.

    Like I said, I don't disagree with the assertion that OU isn't as important a win this week as Baylor would be. But OU has the potential of being a huge win psychologically for the team and this fan base.

    Otherwise, I agree - OU probably isn't that important in the eyes of the committee outside of taking care of business in the conference.

    Yeah, when you haven't been to the tourney in seven years every win is big for us from a certain perspective for sure.

    I really think we're in good shape without regard to having to win in Waco.Baylor is 8-4 for a reason. I just hope if we have a good effort there aren't too many CFers jumping off buildings.We need to win our home games and if we get one on the road thats a plus.

    I think I tend to subscribe to this perspective. Cyclone fans seem to be a lot more uncertain about our tourney status than those outside the program (and that's completely understandable!)
