    Do the women deserve a bid to the dance?

    Just curious. I don't really know to be quite honest. What kind of seeding and so on do they expect now with this K=State loss. Are they still getting in. Do we have a case for making it? Thanks for the help


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    The Big 12 is far and away the best conference in the land. The B12 lead over the 2nd best conference in conference RPI is larger than the 2nd place conference has over the 6th place conferece.

    RealTimeRPI.com Women's College Basketball Rating Percentage Index (RPI) Ratings - A leading sports ratings and resources community on the Internet

    ISU finished .500 and in 4th place.

    Plus, with Ames as a host site and the ISU fan base I would put odds above 95%, but I understand feeling uneasy about it too.

    Re: Do the women deserve a bid to the dance?

    I think we are in, especially since Ames is a host city. This has some weight in WBB. Maybe it shouldn't, but seriously, attendance will be much better if ISU is in.

    Re: Do the women deserve a bid to the dance?

    I'm going to transfer my posts from the KSU game over here. They might help to clarify.

    ---
    Now that Jerry Palm's quit (who was the better of the two), the only major women's bracketologist I know of is Charlie Creme. He has ISU in as the third-to-last team in the tournament. Presumably they'll drop somewhat after today, probably out....

    The last four teams in, according to Creme. All these teams are done for the season.

    Temple: RPI 48; 0-5 v. top 25; 2-3 v. 26-50; 6-0 v. 51-100; bad loss @209

    Iowa State: RPI 44 (before today); 3-7 v. top 25; 3-3 v. 26-50; 2-2 v. 51-100; no bad losses

    Michigan State: RPI 64; 2-3 v. top 25; 2-4 v. 26-50; 1-1 v. 51-100; bad losses 111, @122, v202

    Texas: RPI 46 (before yesterday); 2-7 v. top 25; 2-3 v. 26-50; 4-3 v. 51-100; no bad losses

    Even with the loss, I think we're the strongest of these four teams, and unless some mid-major conference champs lose in their tourneys or some other bubble teams make strong tournament runs (either of which could reasonably happen), I think we're probably on the right side of the bubble.

    Re: Do the women deserve a bid to the dance?

    The first eight teams out, according to Creme.

    North Carolina: RPI 87; 1-9 v. top 25; 0-1 v. 26-50; 4-0 v. 51-100; bad loss 245; done for season

    USC: RPI 30; 1-5 v. top 25; 2-1 v. 26-50; 6-2 v. 51-100; no bad losses; playing 125 this evening (PAC-12 tourney)

    Michigan: RPI 45; 0-4 v. top 25; 4-3 v. 26-50; 1-3 v. 51-100; bad loss @167; done for season

    James Madison: RPI 34; 0-1 v. top 25; 1-1 v. 26-50; 7-3 v. 51-100; bad loss @188; playing tomorrow (CAA tourney)

    Oklahoma State: RPI 52 (before yesterday); 2-6 v. top 25; 3-3 v. 26-50; 2-1 v. 51-100; bad losses v116, v117; done for season

    Kansas: RPI 47; 1-6 v. top 25; 3-2 v. 26-50; 5-1 v. 51-100; bad losses 116, @178; playing 8 this evening (Big 12 tourney)

    Wake Forest: RPI 83; 1-7 v. top 25; 0-2 v. 26-50; 3-3 v. 51-100; no bad losses; done for season

    Arizona State: RPI 66; 0-3 v. top 25; 0-3 v. 26-50; 4-2 v. 51-100; bad loss @108; playing 166 this evening (PAC-12 tourney)

    There's no way Iowa State doesn't get in before North Carolina, Oklahoma State, or Wake Forest. I would say the same about Michigan except we lost head-to-head against them; still, our complete folio is stronger than theirs.

    I don't think James Madison will get in before us -- we just want Delaware to win the CAA tournament to make it a one-bid league.

    USC might look slightly weaker than us now (despite the gaudy RPI), but a good run in the Pac-12 tourney could put them in front of us. If they beat California to get to the finals, I think they're probably ahead of Iowa State.

    Arizona State would need a win over Stanford on Friday to have a chance to make it in. Not happening.

    Kansas isn't going to beat A&M this evening. But if they do, I'm worried.

    If you're looking for other teams to cheer for in their conference tournaments: UWGB and UTEP. UWGB in particular losing would be bad, because the Phoenix are going to be in the tournament regardless. UTEP losing would make them another bubble team.

    If UTEP doesn't win the cusa they won't get an at large bid.

    Deserve? I think so. Will they get one? I don't know. My heart says yes, but my Cyclone sense of history is skeptical.

    They're 26-3 in a mid-major conference (11th out of 31 by RPI). They're 4-1 v. the RPI 51-100 -- better than most of the bubble teams, including the Cyclones. They're not remotely a sure thing, but I can see the possibility of the committee putting them ahead of Iowa State; it's tough to compare two teams with such completely different portfolios.

    Really???

    Wins over Tulane, Memphis, and Idaho St. don't equate to KSU, Texas, TTech, Kansas, OU, Iowa.

    Plus UTEP has a couple really bad losses.

    Their resume is no were near as good as the cyclones.

    Just the same, I will be happy if they win their tourney.

    only in because of being a host site. NCAA wants the attendance.

    That isn't the only reason but it certainly works in our favor.
