    Poll: Who would you rather have ISU play in the First Round?

    I'm just curious, but puting all standings in the conference aside, who would you rather have had ISU play in the first round of the Big 12 tournament? I personally am glad we are playing Texas as I feel we don't match up super well with Kansas State and are somewhat lucky we've swept them so far. It is tough beating teams like that 3 times in a row.

    So you'd rather play a team that has beat us once already, and will be desparate for a win to keep their tourney hopes alive?

    To me it's a wash, 6 in one hand half a dozen in the other, but I'm confused by people that say they'd rather play Texas than a team we've proved we can beat twice already.

    A really big argument with us possibly facing MIZZOU again is "It's really hard to beat a team three times in one season".... Same goes for us beating K-State a third time.

    I voted Texas because they have no chance.

    I most definitely see your logic, but my basis is fully from my feelings while playing them this year. With the Texas games, I feel that if we play well, we automatically win like we've shown in our first game against them. However, with Kansas State, I feel like we played really well in both of those games and barely beat them. This means our margin for error is small. On the flip side, if we play bad, we will probably lose to both of them, which was proven in our UT loss.

    While I somewhat agree with this, I also think that playing a team that's backed into a corner is dangerous too. Again, I think it's a wash, both teams would be tough.

    I also feel K-State is the overall better team and their RPI agrees with me.

    This isn't close for me..KSU is much tougher physically, and I don't want to play them before starting the tourney. Texas has one scorer, especially with their bigs hurt..they shouldn't be a problem and we won't have to bang for 40 minutes the way we would with KSU.

    edit: Haha..and right on cue, I accidentally vote for KSU.

    I'm much happier playing Texas, rather than getting bruised up and worn out playing KState. They're just way more physical, and I can only imagine playing them takes more out of the team

    Also, Petiepie if you disagree with me, throw a vote up for K-State in my poll. I see no votes already. We need someone to vote for them. That is what a poll is for.

    Re: Poll: Who would you rather have ISU play in the First Round?

    We've had some ups and downs, but I think we've improved a lot more since we lost to Texas in Austin. We had a horrendous night, where just about everything that could go wrong did, and we STILL had a chance to win on the road at the end of the game. Texas also just lost Wangmene, who seemed to give us fits.

    I still don't know how we managed to close out two close games against KSU. It shows how much credit our Cyclone team and coaches deserve in doing so. I don't like our chances against them a 3rd time in Kansas City where they'll have as many or more fans there than we will. Texas won't have as many fans.

    This is how I feel too. Texas with a gimpy player (probably be close to 100% by Thur.) and another out for the rest of the year is another factor.

    Nevermind, we've got a vote for K-State now. Nice work to whoever went out on a limb. You won't be the only one.

    I believe that vote was an accident. KSU doesn't have a vote yet.


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    Nope, should be 0. That vote was meant for Texas, but I'm an idiot.
