    Anyone else sick of hearing that were a bubble team?

    I mean i know this team has responded well to not getting respect but at what point do you get respect? I was watching the KU Mizz game last night and they showed us and Texas as the two bubble teams in the B12. Some reason it just really angered me. Come on we beat K-St twice who beat Mizz and BU in their two previous games. We beat KU. Texas with their poor showing @TTech definately showed their still a bubble team but how is ISU still a bubble team. Evidently 21-8 (11-5) in the B12 31 RPI rating and 3rd in the B12 isnt good enough to be a lock.

    It beats talking about next year.

    ISU is now a lock, well unless they get blown out in the next 3 games.

    ISU is no longer a bubble team. Squarely in the "should be in" category right now.

    Re: Anyone else sick of hearing that were a bubble team?

    We are in...... Too many paraniod people.

    It would take us losing everything the rest of the way by 30 points. Do you see that happening? Have we lost any game this year by more then 12 points or so??

    The Big 12 will get 5 bids maybe 6. No way they would skip over the 3rd or 4th place team to pick up Texas or KSU. Think about it people.

    Not any more... I'm getting very excited thinking about next year. We just need someone to step up and fill Scotty's leadership role and we could be very good.

    No, because hopefully it will give the team even more incentive to go out and do well in these last 2 games plus the conference tourney.

    It wouldn't matter if we do get blown out. For starters, the 3 games will be against very good opponents. Also, the amount you lose by doesn't weight into RPI or any other system other than just an opinion. If you lose by 1 to Missouri on the road, that is the same as losing by 50.

    If amount of losses were taken into consideration, we should have been off the bubble a month ago. We have had 2 losses of 10 or more points: @Michigan & @Baylor. Another way to think about it: does it matter now that we only beat MVSU by 2 points IN HILTON? Nope, we won. That is all.


    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.
