    Good but would rather be a lock.

    I figured KSU would be a lock after those wins. They have a good shot to win out. We have to win 1 game just to secure 4th place.

    at Kansas State, at Missouri, versus Baylor -- can't possibly yield a bad loss. Even an 0-3 mark (which might be the most likely result) will keep them in pretty decent shape. Remember, there's still that win over Kansas. Things are looking up in Ames.
    I agree here.
    However, I would really like to get just 1 of those, and I think we will. Winning one of those games will move us into a lock for the tourney. I would really like to sweep KSU. I would also like to send Mizzou to the SEC with a loss. And I would love to beat Baylor on senior day. F it, just win em all.


    When Prepared, Fear No One.

    On an off topic note on the Big 10:

    "A few short weeks ago, it appeared the Big Ten was set to get as many as eight, possibly even nine, NCAA tournament bids. That dream is over."

    At least somebody is starting to realize it lol.

    Even with 0-3 we will be in decent shape, yes. But go 0-4, and we just may be in slightly less decent shape.

    Only idiots had that dream. I swear some "experts" don't even watch the games.

    It is positive news, and therefore, I agree with it.

    Re: ESPN Bubble Watch (2-24-12 Edition)

    Might not be a lock, but pretty crazy that we can lose our last 3 games of the regular season and still have a good shot to get in.. so so nice not to be in that "if we win out, we might still have a shot to get in" scenario. Our guys have put us in a great position.

    Alot of talk about losing our last three. I just don't see it though. Our guys hate to lose and take it personally. No way we lose 3 straight.

    Re: ESPN Bubble Watch (2-24-12 Edition)

    Finishing in the top 4 would be a tremendous accomplishment for Fred and the boys, even if the standings have no bearing on our tournament prospects. The top 5 would still be good, to finish in the top half of the Big 12 for the first time in forever, but I want to finish as high as possible.

    Scrolling down through the rest of the report...whoops, they forgot to put the team logos for the "locks" on that conference...oh...it's the Pac12. Nevermind.

    IMO, that was a total homer pipe dream all along. Yeah, numbers wise is was doable, but to think all of those teams were going to win the games they needed to to get into the tourney was quite a stretch. Especially the whole Illinois thing. They were obvioiusly on a downward path, but a few people kept them in there. It's like buying a lottery ticket and telling everyone you are as good as a millionaire.
