    Cyclones really got screwed with its seed.

    We knew selection Sunday that we got screwed, but after watching the first two games tonight, wow can anybody score the ball. How does Wisconsin and Indiana get 4 seeds and we get Kentucky in Louisville. This should have been an even more special season.

    Yeah, but not a better way to go out. I think it did Royce really well and the rest of our program as well.

    Re: Cyclones really got screwed with its seed.

    Our seed was fair IMO. I wish we could have drawn any of the other 1 seeds but considering we had nothing positive from the non-conference and the golden egg that was laid in KC against Texas, the 8 seed was justified.

    This is such a ******** argument. We deserved a 8 seed. We did not deserve to play the #1 team.

    I think if we had played at a fairly high level against Syracsue or Michigan State, we could have beaten them.

    That's the ******* point. Not that we lost a game to Texas. That we got screwed.

    Re: Cyclones really got screwed with its seed.

    I do think there was a certain B1G bias. wisconsin, indiana, michst, michigan, and ohio state all got 1-5 seeds. with 27-7 MSU beating out 30-4 mizzou for the 1 seed.
    yet all the media brags about how good they are even though the had the easiest routes to the sweet 16

    Re: Cyclones really got screwed with its seed.

    Well, if you think ISU got screwed, then they screwed themselves. If they had blown Texas away by 20 points and maybe won one more game in the Big 12 tourney, they might have been a 6 or 7 seed. Their seeding was fair.

    Re: Cyclones really got screwed with its seed.

    I know it doesn't matter but if the tourney were done over I think most people in the country would agree we should have been a higher seed. For whatever reason I don't think people believed the Royce hype, well as we all know, he's legit and his team can play with anyone because as he said....he's the best player.

    Re: Cyclones really got screwed with its seed.

    We probably would have beaten at least 2 of the 3 other 1 seeds.

    Re: Cyclones really got screwed with its seed.

    Fair seed (I think a 7 would have been fair as well). Very tough draw, but one that really got our team amped up to play. UConn in the first round was a great thing, and beating a defending national champion gave them a lot of attention there too. Royce benefited as well, obviously, and I'm cool with that too.

    I think it was more the non conference. We did nothing of note, and lost to couple of teams we should not have. The one big game we had, on the road at Michigan, wasn't really even a game. Thank goodness Dedrick ripped into them and gave them a wakeup call before the conference season started.

    And Missouri caught a 15 seed buzzsaw. Our NonCon just didn't give us a business case.
