    Palm has us in a First Four play-in against North Carolina for a 12 seed. Winner would get Mizzou.

    Those would be two fun games. Win both and get New Mexico (Steve Alford). Not a bad stretch for a 12 seed.

    Of course beating UNC in the first game would be tough because they are extremely talented.

    That's strange. When I saw it, it said first four out. Oh well, looks like Jerry is finally coming around

    Re: ***Official 2013 Bracketology Thread***

    Below is an excerpt from my blog about ISU's tournament hopes:

    Current Resume:


    Overall Record: 13-4
    Conference Record: 3-1
    Big Wins: None
    Bad Losses: None
    RPI: 34
    SOS: 77



    Ken Pomeroy has ISU predicted to finish the year at 12-6 in conference play based on percentages and also 12-6 based on game-by-game. This is only a slight improvement from last time. Its important to keep in mind Ken hasn't been wrong predicting the winner of ISU games all season. If this holds true ISU would add several big wins to their resume in the coming weeks. Its also worth noting that Iowa State has jumped from #40 to #30 since the last update in the team rankings.


    Looking at Bracket Matrix yields a slight improvement for Iowa State as well.. Here you will find cumulative seed predictions based on 39 bracket projections. No more need to go different places. It is all right here and updated daily. Right now their average seed is an 11.2 (which is good for a 12 seed) and they are "in" in 32 of the 39 predictions.

    Although it would suck to play in the first round game, if Lundardi's bracket was true and we beat CSU, we play our next two games in Kansas City! Hilton South anybody?

    I'm not sure that's necessarily the case. To finish 12-6, ISU would still lose five more conference games.

    Losing another one to KU, both to K-State, and two out of the three road games vs. BU, OU, and OSU wouldn't really leave much for "big wins" on the ISU resume.

    Not saying it won't happen, just saying that big wins are hard to come by in the Big 12 this year and they'll (mostly) have to come on the road.

    It's January, far too early for bracketology, only three weeks into conference play right now.

    If KenPom holds true we could have "big wins" over Kansas State, Baylor and Oklahoma State and Oklahoma if you want to include them

    True, but it's fun to talk about and speculate
