    FYI: He's trolling you and you're taking the bait. As well as providing him press by linking his articles.

    Who cares. We will get another win, maybe more. Its a moot point.

    Wow. Some people get so bent out of shape over Jerry Palm. I say we forget about that guy and quit giving him the mindspace. Life will be much more enjoyable if we just enjoy the team and quit overanalyzing what one pundit says. We can't control it, so why worry.

    Isn't anyone else a bit worried about this?

    Here's our top 100 RPI wins: 6, 40, @40, 53.

    And here's the top 100 RPI wins for Illinois, a team practically everyone has outside looking in: 4, 7, 19, @47, 80, @87.

    We have a gaudy conference record, but I'm not going to be completely confident until we get one more quality win.

    If someone's job is to predict NCAA tournament teams, and he's trolling instead of doing that job...isn't he 100000x more obsessed than any ISU fan?

    My job is to design products and illustrations. If I were to do the opposite of that and just scribble on paper with crayons to tick somebody off what does that say about me? For one thing I'd get fired. For another I'd lose the distinction of calling myself a designer.

    If he wants to troll he should call himself a professional troll instead of a bracketologist or analyst.

    Illinois bad losses offset their good wins.

    He makes some valid points. I think his opinion is wrong, but I don't think it's outrageous.

    Illinois RPI: 72 and dropping like a 100 ton weight

    Illinois has lost 9 out of 10 games. Among those 9 losses are two losses worse than any of ISU's losses.

    If top 100 RPI wins were the ONLY factor considered, then I would share your worries. It is not the only factor, though.

    Illinois is only 16-12, is 5 games under .500 in their conference, and they just got destroyed by a truly horrible Nebraska team. There are many reasons why Illinois is on the outside looking in.

    Illinois has one win since January 10th and zero in February. Including an *** kicking at mighty Nebraska.

    RPI rankings:

    ISU - 31
    Ill - 75

    Not too worried. Seems like most people look at Top 50 wins anyway, and if Texas can move up 3 spots, we'd have 4 wins over Top 50 teams - 5 if we can beat Baylor at home.
