    Would you rather play a "Power 6 " or Mid-Major?

    So now that we are talking seeds, would you rather draw a "Power 6" team round one or a Mid-Major? I can see both situations having their merits, just curious if there is a consensus on this...?

    I'm not very original. My idea is "Just Bring It."

    I don't care who we play.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Power 6. Mid majors are always looking to knock off any big dog.

    The popular answer will be mid major, but I don't know about that. Our guys seem to play a lot better against major schools. Plus those cinderella's are always dangerous. On the other hand white would create huge problems for most mid majors.

    A power conference team, no question. Getting paired with a mid-major is like getting paired with Miami (Ohio) in a bowl.

    Power 6 teams have faced tough competition all year (except PAC12 teams) and will likely be better prepared to face a high level of competition. Mid-Majors are somewhat unknown quantities and that may be scaring some people. I chose Power 6 but I wouldn't be scared of a team like Creighton.

    I don't think a team like Memphis would be equivalent to Miami OH. Mid-Majors can still have a rich basketball tradition and be power programs.

    I would love to knock off Murray State in the first round.
    Other than that, give me a Power 6 team.
    Actually, I really don't give a crap. I'm just happy to be there.

    Re: Would you rather play a "Power 6 " or Mid-Major?

    Power 6 team, IMO. Mid-major teams are always underrated and out to prove something. Obviously it depends on what team in particular you are talking about, but if we're a 'plus' seed (Top 8), I'd definitely want a power conference team to play first round. If we're a minus seed (9-16), I'd be more inclined to take my chances with a mid-major but would again probably prefer a power conference club.

    I don't care who we beat in the first, second, or third round. i don't even care who we beat in the title game.




    Paul Rhoads' players never quit.
    (They just disappear offseason)
