    That's funny how they ruled Fab Melo ineligible

    Yeah, I noticed the results that he had 70 something percent of the vote and lost and then realized, oh, yeah, he's not in the tourney.

    Re: Vote for Cyclones in ESPN's Coolest Name Elite Eight

    I picked all the lower seeds to advance.

    Fun to get Sledge and Palu this far. It can't be just ISU fans voting in this, right?

    I anticipate Cashmere Wright and Bak Bak will get voted to the final.

    I didn't vote for Bak Bak since Round 1.

    Or is it now known as "Round 2"?

    I think Bubu will make it. He had like the fourth highest percentage total in the last round. Tavon, not so sure. He just kind of squeaked by the last round.

    Tourney looks pretty guard heavy. Hope sledge sticks with it

    He got some pretty good name press during our tourney games.
