    Re: 3/2 Bracketology (Lunardi)

    If ISU had to be the 8-seed, that is the bracket I want. Of the three #1s we're eligible to play (we couldn't play Kansas until the Elite 8), Duke is the most beatable. In fact, I feel good about ISU's chances against any of the teams in that bracket.

    I like that bracket, we could realistically take that, we can beat Duke OSU and Baylor, biggest worry in that is IU/Florida IU because watford and zeller are really really good, and Florida because they play exactly the same as us but are more athletic

    It will be interesting to see what we are if we beat Baylor tomorrow. I'm guessing a 7 and with a couple wins next week, we could easily be a 5 or 6 seed.

    OSU just seems like a paper tiger to me they have talent but are like baylor kinda, they are less than the sum of their parts. zeller always plays hard and watford is clutch

    But I think that Indiana is much more vulnerable than OSU. Indiana lost to Iowa, Nebraska, and Minnesota. I realize they have big wins, but I'd rather face them than OSU.

    Why the hell is everyone calling Baylor a paper Tiger and a team not worthy of their ranking? That tiger beat our ***** down in TX. They were laughing and smiling as they dismantled our Cyclones.

    Re: 3/2 Bracketology (Lunardi)

    the point is they disappear in big games, and Baylor sot out of their minds that game and we shot bad

    You will see it was a fluke tomorrow. They were shooting out their arses in Waco.

    Don't like Duke in Greensboro

    Can someone tell me how NW could possibly play Indiana in the 1st round?

    That is what happens when you have ten Big Ten teams in the mix.


    Actually, Joe L was smoking when this was issued.

    Definitely. Indiana at a #4? Ohio State at the #2? Yes, please
