    We're #1!!!

    Thought this would be amusing...

    Re: We're #1!!!

    It is taking the fact that a team we beat has one win. Early in the year this obviously means nothing.
    Most schools have beaten teams that only have losses.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    If the NCAA tournament began now, we would likely be a #1 seed.

    We are one of about a dozen teams that have won two games. And each of our opponents have one win, so that is probably what does it for us.

    I can just imagine the press release, " Amazingly, an ISU team picked to finish in the bottom of the big 12 is the best team in the country, according to the RPI. (ratings percentage index)
