    Looking back 3 weeks ago (regarding bubble teams)

    Out of all the bubble teams that were there 3 weeks ago including Iowa State is that Iowa State was one of the few teams
    to improved the most and got off the bubble and solidly in the NCAA Tournament....

    Re: Looking back 3 weeks ago (regarding bubble teams)

    I looked back at the bubble watch on ESPN and it was cool to see how far we had come.

    What did it for us was staying consistent and not losing games we shouldn't (with the possible exception of at Oklahoma State) and mixing a few signiture wins.

    Re: Looking back 3 weeks ago (regarding bubble teams)

    This, I am amazed at the job we did to get off the bubble.

    Usually a Cyclone team would find a way to remain on the bubble and find a way to falter at the end.




    I WAS THERE!!!!!!

    Most of the so called experts, and even some on here, thought we would lose the last 3.

    This is why we were in the tourney 3 weeks ago. The scenarios that had us out assumed we wouldn't win any more and EVERY other bubble team wouldn't lose
