    CBS Sportsline puts Iowa State @ 24

    in their own poll...

    The poll was not made by Jerry Palm by the way, he only handles their bracketology...

    NCAA College Basketball Rankings - CBSSports.com News, Scores, Stats, Schedule and RPI Rankings

    Not bad for a team still looking for one more win just to be safe per what Palm states from the same DARN site...

    If ISU is 24 in that poll then that should be a 6th seed for the NCAA's so how is it that Palm who works for CBS Sportsline has ISU on the bubble still?

    CBS Sports, like ESPN and others, hire independent contractors to serve as columnists, pundits, opinion makers, etc. They probably have a couple hundred people doing things for them, some (hopefully most) are down with Iowa State, others (like B1G homer Palms) are not.

    Palm is a complete idiot. Palm probably has Illinois back in the Tourney after their big win over Iowa at home.

    ISU is in. Now it is a question of seed. Right now I would say we are a 9 seed. We could possibly go higher with another win or 2. ISU is playing pretty well. IMO, we could make some noise as we can play with about anybody right now.

    Just look at his pic, he looks like a straight up troll. (he prolly also blushes and giggles when somebody mentions Jarid Sullinger)

    I think we are an 8 seed right now. Sucks. But oh well. If we 1-1 in the rest of the reg season and win two in the b12 tourney. I think we will get a 5 seed!

    Re: CBS Sportsline puts Iowa State @ 24

    Palm has an agenda and it is promoting the B1G as much as possible. I don't consider him an analyst or bracketologist in any form. He is more like a columnist that focuses on B1G teams and should not be allowed to spread his filth on CBS, but for some reason they forgot how to hire objective journalists.

    My point I guess is that if anyone on this board is waiting for him to "come around" when it comes to Iowa State, you might be waiting a long time. Don't feed the troll!

    Re: CBS Sportsline puts Iowa State @ 24

    So, if ISU by some chance won both at mizzou and beat baylor at home, wouldn't they be 2nd place for the reg season?

    You know there really have only been a couple times in school history when we've been better then that. Not sure why this sucks?

    Re: CBS Sportsline puts Iowa State @ 24

    We were a 9 seed in 2005, but I feel that we have a better overall resume this year, should we split the next two games and grab a win or two in the conference tourney.

    There were some really bad home losses that year to CU and NU.

    @bobber if a 8 seed you play a 9, those games are usually a toss up. Then you play a 1.

    We now have the Jerry Palm sanity formula!

    CBS ranks us 24th, CBS's own Jerry Palm ranks ISU 48th (12 seed).

    Palm divided by 2 = rational assessment of ISU basketball

    Rankings are fun... We deserve it, but I would rather what to see what happens if we win or split these next two.
