    3-9-2012 Bracketology

    Still an 8 seed, but playing Purdue. Winner gets Syracuse (more than likely). I have some good friends who went to Purdue so that would be fun. I do like the matchup and think we could win it.

    Can't think of a better team to play in the first round or a worse team to play in the second round.

    Agreed, except maybe Kentucky. I would love Purdue in the 1st round.

    Syracuse would be a nightmare for us with no point guard.

    At least after the Purdue game is decided, everyone in the world will know which is the better engineering school.

    Sign me up for playing Purdue. After that we have to beat a one regardless, might as well be the 'Cuse.

    If the right ISU team shows up, they can beat anyone.

    I told my Purdue friend, and already he's like "Hummel can stop White." Don't know about that one...

    After last night, I'm going to have to see this team right the ship before my confidence returns. Something was seriously off last night.

    Syracuse is the last team we would want to play. There is no doubt about it.

    Re: 3-9-2012 Bracketology

    As a 7-10 seed, there will be no possible second round matchup that is good for us. Take your pick from this list ...

    Syracuse, Kentucky, UNC, Duke, Ohio State, Michigan State

    Count me in as someone that would be very happy with an 11 seed.

    I would much much rather play Duke, Ohio State, or MSU. I'm not saying we'd beat them but we'd have a much better chance against them than the other 3.

    Duke. They are like us in that they live and die by the 3. Our perimeter defense is outstanding it is our interior defense that hurts us. Maybe OSU too.

    Someone in an adjacent group tried to tell me that Scotty was not feeling well. That is all I know. I was surprised that CA did not have a better game.

    I think that Duke may be the best matchup for us on that list, but I would worry about how we would guard the three point line.

    Beating any of them would of course be monumental tasks for almost every team in the country.
