    ISU tourney draws

    While watching how freaky good UK was last night got me thinking about the bad luck ISU has had with NCCA draws.

    If we throw out the Hampton year like we all wish we could, and if we project UK wins the title on Monday, the last three ISU draws have all seen us go out to:

    * the eventual national champ
    * the prohibitive favorite going into the tourney
    * arguably 3 of the best teams in the last 20 years
    * on a court in their home state

    We are ISU.

    Beat teams we should have and we wouldn't have the problem of playing UK.

    Geez, I get it, dude. I never argued we didn't deserve the seed. I've said many times we ****** a good tourney run down our legs by losing to TX. I'm just saying it sucks that we've gotten these THREE teams in their home state, rather than the 9 other #1 seeds we could have been matched up against.

    It was meant to be ironic rather than *****y.

    Re: ISU tourney draws

    I get your point. It is a bit unlucky. if ISU wouldn't have run into by far the best team int he country then I think they could have made some serious noise... the difference is more than just another win... if they could played a different team and got an upset and made a little run it would have had a positive impact on recruiting and overall media coverage...

    It is frustrating knowing we beat one of teams in the title game. But then again, you can't lose to Drake.

    Worst seeding was playing #1 seed Michigan State play in their backyard - they didn't deserve a #1 seed that year with their number of losses. NCAA is all about money - they could have sent them out west.

    Damn right we are ISU - one of the very few programs in America that went to a bowl game, Men's NCAA tournament, Women's NCAA tournament, Volleyball NCAA tournament.

    And this...

    North Car., Baylor and Iowa State are the only 3 teams to have played both NCAA finalists UK & KU. ISU is the only one of the 3 with a win.

    Just more proof that everyone is doing everything they can to keep ISU down.

    Re: ISU tourney draws

    Sounds like a bunch of excuses to me.

    Oh, and playing MSU in the Elite 8 isn't really comparable to the other 2 years. More likely than not you're going to play a highly seeded team once you reach the Elite 8.
