    Re: SI's Seth Davis finally know ISU exists

    Indiana fans were up in arms Sunday night when I tweeted out a ballot that didn't include the Hoosiers, but since I didn't have IU ranked last week, I had to ask myself which was the harder win -- Iowa State's at Kansas State, or Indiana's at Minnesota? I think that answer is obvious.

    Did Seth clear this with Jerry Palm?

    I wonder how many college basketball analysts we can harass before the tournament?

    At least we have their attention.

    Ah, I don't think the OP's intention was to berate Seth Davis. More like he saw something nice written about ISU and posted it. Personally, I would have left out the part about finally getting some recognition and titled it more appropriately. Hopefully the OP wasn't playing the Rodney Dangerfield card.

    Did anybody else listen to the CBS sports podcast where they had Palm on? He is definitely not fond of our fanbase after this year. I belive the term "losers who don't know anything about the NCAA tournament" was used to describe us.

    Fair enough. I understand the criticism of Palm for obvious reasons, but never quite understood the Gottlieb hate

    I don't understand the Seth Davis hate by the OP. He's been very complimentary of us this year, IMO. Other than the 'Hoiberg is playing with fire' stuff, he's been fine.

    Jerry Palm is an idiot, deserved what he got. For a while there, Gottlieb did too. But if they want to be wrong, that's their problem -- not ours.

    With Gottlieb I don't think it was so much that his opinions were way out of line, he was just so smug about it. He made it sound like you'd have to be an absolute idiot to see ISU in the tourney.

    I don't get why we care so much about what this Jerry Palm dude, or Gottlieb or any other analyst has to say for that matter. Their opinion doesn't count. They can't have in depth knowledge of every school. Sometimes it is better that nobody is talking about you. They could be talking about us in their first 4 out or last 4 in. Since we are not on either of those lists, there isn't much to talk about with ISU as we aren't going to get a top 4 seed either.

    GO CYCLONES!!!

    He should be happy that 15K+ fans now know who his dumb *** is.

    In the age of the internet, my mental image of experts, analysts and prognosticators is of some dude hammering out semi-sentient BS in his basement office, who can spell and use grammar just well enough to land a gig with someone.
