    CBSsports has ISU an 8 seed as of this morning

    NCAA College Basketball Tournament Bracket Predictions - CBSSports.com News, Scores, Stats, Schedule and RPI Rankings

    Might be one of the best 8 seeds we've seen in awhile



    Also has Kansas State as an 8 seed. And of course has Northwestern in.

    I think we are at a 7 right now.

    Re: CBSsports has ISU an 8 seed as of this morning

    The seed doesn't really matter IMO, if we shoot it well we can beat anybody. Actually, I think I would be more scared going in if we were a 5 seed.

    I don't understand all the love for the Big 10. 7 teams from that league is crazy. In a head to head matchup, I'd pick Texas over either Purdue or Northwestern.

    Re: CBSsports has ISU an 8 seed as of this morning

    You know what makes his bracket insane is the fact that he has SETON HALL in the tournament! They lost 6 games in a row at one point, Beat other big east bubble teams and then loses to Rutgers and gets blown out by 3 conference win Depaul. Yes they beat Georgetown, but seriously CBS? Seton Hall, not deserving.

    Re: CBSsports has ISU an 8 seed as of this morning

    Im hoping ISU can get up to a 6 seed...probably need to be playing on Saturday to do that.

    First round game against an 11 seed, second round game against a 3 seed would be ideal! If they were to make it that far, they wouldn't see a 1 seed until the Elite 8.

    I don't like a second round match up against Syracuse. There are two teams in the NCAA that I think we can't beat with short prep time and they are Syracuse and Kentucky. Facing that Syracuse zone on short preparation is not a good thing. Give me anyone other than Syracuse and Kentucky in the second round and I would be happy. Then give us time to prepare for those two and we have a shot

    +1. couldnt agree more. A couple wins in the tournament might get us there. I dont even mind a 7 seed. There isn't a projected 2 seed that ISU can't play with

    Re: CBSsports has ISU an 8 seed as of this morning

    I agree that I see us as a 7 right now (probably 7 with a win, 8 with a loss today). I don't think the selection committee will show nearly as much bias as the media does. They seem to be stuck rating teams with preseason expectations weighing on those who exceeded them, and adding to those who haven't.

    I'd rather play a team in the second round that we don't have to shoot lights-out to win. No thank you 8/9 seed.

    This is another reason why Texas has no chance. The team knows we are flirting with an 8/9 seed. We'll be lions today.

    Surprised to see us #8 and Baylor #3! I see Baylor (and Missouri) imploding in the Big 12 tourney.

    Very good point although we are tough to prepare for as well on short turnaround. I agree with you though.
