    From what I see, Iowa and ISU are last four in as 12's?

    Re: Bracketology

    yep, f palm. This is his fantasy dream bracket. Or at least that's what I gained by all of last year. He would love for Iowa to play BYU in the play in game, because honestly, they would destroy them almost as bad as we did. And he would love for ISU to have to play a play in game versus North Carolina.

    Was putting it in a nice way, I don't jump on mistakes and run people into the ground for them.

    Re: Bracketology

    No way UNC ends up as a play-in team. They're young and will get better throughout the season.

    Re: Bracketology

    He actually has 6 teams in from the Big 12 - Kansas, KSU, Baylor, OU, Okie State, ISU.

    Palm is a huge big 10 homer. If I recall, last year his very last bracket had 4 from the big 12 and 8 from big 10. Basically, if the team is a big 10 team and on the bubble, he has them in automatically.

    Side note - I do think 7 from the Big 10 is about right this year.


    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.

    Re: Bracketology

    Anyone else notice these analysts seem to be giving us more credit then many of us even feel comfortable about? Seems no one bought in last season and are giving us the benefit of the doubt this season.

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    Unfortunately the Big 10 has some good basketball teams this year. Michigan, Indiana, and Ohio St are fun teams to watch. The Big 12 gets 4 in off reputation only, not sure we will have 4 worthy.

    This is what happens when you make the tournament the year before, beat the defending national champion and hold your own with the eventual national champion for about half of the 2nd half. It is a good position to be in.

    Wait, is this the bracketology for THIS season? I was looking for bracketology for NEXT season.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.
