    2-20 Bracketology

    Lunardi has us at a 9 seed now. Playing St. Louis in the South bracket...would give us a second-round matchup vs. Kentucky.

    Saw that. Have to play the big dogs at some time in the tournament if we expect to win it all, might as well knock them off early!

    Also replaced Kansas with Michigan State as the final 1 seed.

    Re: 2-20 Bracketology

    I would take the 7 seed in that bracket so we could meet up with UNC and beat 'em. St. Mary's as a 7 is a joke IMO. We win 2 out of 4 here down the stretch with at least one win in the Big 12 tourney, we should be a 7 at least.

    (*Playing Kentucky would be the worst team to play IMO.)

    Re: 2-20 Bracketology

    I honestly don't care what seed we are, just want to get as far away from the last four in as possible. If that means being an 8 or 9 seed, so be it.

    Re: 2-20 Bracketology

    Playing Kentucky in Louisville of all places too... that would suck. This is why the 8-9 seed is aweful. ISU is better than that seed, I'm sorry.

    Re: 2-20 Bracketology

    7 seed in Omaha would be a smart/good fit for us


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Can't happen if Mizzou and KU are the high seeds playing there.

    Re: 2-20 Bracketology

    I would take anything 10-12 but just don't want an 8 or a 9. Don't want to run into a one seed in the round of 32.

    There may be a small chance of us getting Omaha only if KU and Mizzou end up both being #2 seeds.

    Is that true with the pod system the way it is? Couldn't we be a 7/10 seed in Omaha with Kansas/MU as a 1 seed?
