    Not to mention their RPI is 87. It went up a little bit after the loss to Minnesota, but beating a bunch of ****** teams and losing to marquee teams won't increase their RPI enough to get an at large bid.

    The ONLY bid they will be getting is an NIT bid.

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

    So with us getting a win Saturday (I'm confident...so sue me) what seed do we move up to? 7? 6?

    I think 7 sounds reasonable only because that Tech loss will still have some lingering stench. Sure be nice to have a sweep of a top 15 ranked team.

    It's okay, some of their fans would rather make a run in the NIT then get into the NCAA and bounced in the first round... (Yes, I'm serious).

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

    In the latest ESPN's bracketology I would love to see some those 1 vs 9/8 games..
    Duke vs Kentucky and Michigan vs Oklahoma State and Notre Dame vs Indiana and Florida vs North Carolina

    How are those for games... All those #1 seeds could easily lose as well

    Even so, 7-2 might not be enough to get Iowa into the tournament, unless it involves wins at Wisconsin/vs. Minnesota, and at Indiana.
    They'll beat Minnesota at home and could beat Wisconsin on the road. 7-2 looks very possible with that schedule.

    Iowa has showed they have trouble finishing out games and putting teams away. I don't think it will happen. They are too young.

    Do you think because of Baylor messing up that they might not make the ncaa tournment/

    It wouldn't surprise me if one of the BIg 12 "middle" teams -- Baylor, Iowa State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State -- eventually missed the tourney. If I had to bet, it would be Oklahoma. I think Baylor will make it.

    I'll never understand the discussion of matchups based on bracketology at this point of the year. I understand the "will we get in?" discussion but not the "who we might play" discussion.

    I agree. I didn't read too much into who he has us facing at this point.
    Might as well look at all the 7 seeds.
