    Re: Huguenin STILL has KState as a Lower Seed...

    I don't have a huge problem with KSU above ISU, but I don't know if it's 6 slots on the S-curve.

    Several things even worse about that projection.

    * Purdue as a 5 seed. Can't see it.

    * Northwestern in, but not as play-in; Texas out.

    * Florida is higher than a 7

    As with any bracket, plenty of it is fine as far as the field itself — seedings seem out of whack in places.

    Note: KState is considered higher seed.

    I don't take him seriously... But it is my obligation as a Cyclone fan to point out any media outlet that doesn't favor ISU

    It's clear that some "experts" value the big win more than consistency, or avoiding bad losses - to a fault.

    Oh well.

    Re: Huguenin STILL has KState as a Lower Seed...

    I hate the use of the terms "higher" and "lower" in reference to seeds. About half of the people mean one thing and the other half mean the the exact opposite. I've always thought of a "higher" seed as better, so your thread title made me pause for a minute.

    I try to stick to "better" and "worse" in reference to seeds now.

    You're right; higher seed is the better team.

    Confuses me too... I get why people think both ways... that's why I personally think better and worse are terms that no one can confuse for this.

    Anyway... I don't get how K-State should get a better seed than us at this point.

    KState has more quality wins than us, I am not offended by this projection. If we win another game we will jump them.

    Re: Huguenin STILL has KState as a Lower Seed...

    KSUs resume is a little better than ours, especially their top 25 record (4-3) vs ours (1-4), and that they have 2 top 25 ROAD wins. Both highly valued by the committee. I'd be surprised if they aren't a higher seed than us come selection day (unless we win out .

    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. ~ George Carlin

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    By "better," do you mean higher or lower.

    Anyway — Considered as a whole, ISU & KSU resumes have become nearly indistinguishable at this point. A few things in each team's favor:

    Team comparison ISU vs. KSU


    I realize we may see head-to-head sweep as a tiebreaker; but that isn't an official selection factor (not to say it is never considered)

    That really is a horrible tournament projection.
