    Bracket Matrix Topic

    The Bracket Project's Bracket Matrix - 2012

    Out of 100 brackets that are aggregated, we are on 100 of them.

    Average seed is 8.3. 12 brackets have us at a 7 or higher.

    4 brackets haven't updated since before the KSU game and they are kinda dragging our average down before they are all double digit seeds.

    5 brackets have updated since the KSU game and still have us as a double digit seed.

    A win at home against Baylor and a win or two in the Big 12 tourney and I would say our chances of getting out of the 8/9 game are very good. Plus need to keep in mind that there are some mid-majors in 5, 6, and 7 seeds that could be upset in their conference tourneys and that would greatly help Iowa State moving on up.


    I'll try and keep tabs on this as time goes on. Mean time, discuss how awesome Iowa State post-season is.

    That 5 seed is from "Seed Madness," which is an interesting site. Not sure how reliable (discovered it only a couple weeks ago).

    I think reaching a 5 seed is tough at this point, although ISU has more opportunities to climb a couple levels compared to some mid-major teams in the 5-8 range that may not be able to improve their position much, since a lot of them will at best play teams in the same category from here on.

    Best shot at a 5 is to be a 6 and get adjusted one seed line to accommodate bracketing procedures.

    I'd almost prefer a 6 to a 5.

    But that's cart-before-chickens-hatch. At this point, 7 would be fine with me need to beat Baylor for sure.

    Why is Florida a 4 seed? they have a similar record to us and their top win is against Miss St.?

    We are fighting several years of mediocrictiy while Florida has been good for many years and even won the NC a few years back. I'm sure they are getting a name boost while we are getting a held back by crappy basketball for the last 7 years.

    Actually, UF's top win is vs. Florida State

    ISU vs. Florida resume side-by-side

    May not end up as 3-seed difference ... I can see advantages from each team's body of work.
