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

    Speaking of the tournament, I would hate to be the coach preparing for us on that quick turnaround. For discussion's sake, assuming a Thursday/Friday win, we would be nearly impossible to prepare for in that one day period.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Sagarin is 29th now, 6 spot increase.

    http://www.teamrankings.com/ncaa-bas...s/bracketology

    Iowa State bumped 11% to 86% chance to make the tourney and 9 seed is most likely. 21 total wins looks like a lock.

    Ken Pomeroy (Before OU win):

    The Cyclones today stand at #35 in KenPom's rankings. Last week at this time they stood at #41. The Cyclones should shoot up the rankings tomorrow after the efficient offensive output tonight. They had ISU predicted for 11 conference wins coming into today. That won't go down obviously after tonight's win and may bump up to 12 wins tomorrow.

    Bracket Matrix:

    The Bracket Matrix has ISU in the field in 57 of the 60 (95%) brackets. This is a significant jump from last week with not all brackets accounting for the OU win. After doing some reading the 90 percent is a key number. When the committee meets in Indianapolis they will have already submitted 32 teams they think should make the field. Any team that is on 9 out of the 10 ballots is put on the "IN" board and are only discussed when it comes to seeding. A win against KSU on Saturday would put ISU in 100 percent of the brackets (or it should).
    Good update, thanks.

    I think you're right. We've entered solid 10-seed territory.

    I'd be more surprised if it's still at 11 than I would be of a 9.

    Much rather stay under the radar and be a 10 seed then be a 7/8/9 seed.

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

    I wouldnt mind them being an 8 or 9 seed. Gives them a chance to be the talk of the tournament after the first weekend. I also wouldnt mind them winning out and being a 4 or 5 seed

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

    Being a 10 or 11 seed would be perfect for this team. I think we would match up very well with a #6 or #7 seed, and then I think we would have a decent chance against a #2 or #3 seed on the next round. The #1 seeds are looking really dominant. Indiana, Michigan, Florida, and Kansas. Though Kansas is beatable, we nearly accomplished that feat! Perfect situation for ISU would be as an #11 seed. We can beat a #6 seed and a #3 seed. If our shot is on, we have a chance.

    According to Bracket Matrix, these could be our opponents

    Round 1
    #6 seed: NC State, UNLV, Georgetown, Wichita State
    #7 seed: San Diego State, Pittsburgh, Missouri, Wisconsin

    Round 2
    #3 seed: Gonzaga, Louisville, Michigan State, Ohio State
    #2 seed: Duke, Arizona, Miami, Syracuse

    I thought teams of the same conference can't play until at least the sweet 16? Must not be the case if Lunardi has this.

    It probably is the case, and Lunardi is just an idiot.

    Also noticed the Big 12 with 10 teams has the same amount of teams making the tournament as the all powerful and mighty Big Ten with 12 teams LMAO!
