    Looks like Lexington with a chance at Louisville. Yippee.

    ISU as an 11 seed still. Last year at this time we couldn't get on anyone's radar, this year we almost can't get off. Lots of respect for Fred.

    Agreed. I think to some degree we are still living off last years success, but the next 2 games can go a long way to solidifying our resume. The field at 68 certainly helps too.

    I like that we are in the last four in, the draw would not be good...

    Re: 2/1 Bracketology

    Although ISU still has to take advantage of some signature-win opportunities, this shows how little is required to hold ground. ISU has moved from bubble to play-in to firm at-large in a 3-week span without doing anything special.

    Something I noticed yesterday — that bad Tech loss, while still a red-mark on the resume, is now RPI 101-200, instead of sub-200.

    It does appear that way, but this year's resume compared to 2011-12, at roughly the same point in the season, is better.

    I don't think that there will be 7 big 10 teams in. I just don't see it.

    Re: 2/1 Bracketology

    I would actually like that seed if the brackets turned out that way. Probably the easiest road to the championship, not that I think we're better than the teams in the 2 bottom brackets, but definitely dodging some really good teams.

    You don't have to be really good or have a really good resume. You just have to have to be better or have a better resume than the #38 at large team.

    Illinois has a very tough road. Most likely they will fall off.

    Re: 2/1 Bracketology

    The next two games are huge. Lose either one and we are outside looking in with a bit of desperation. Win and we have the bubble at arms length.

    Last season is irrelevant in this process. I would never deny a residual effect (people are human, after all), but even with that, it's a fringe element. If last year's performance had any significant impact, ISU would have had a baseline seeding of 8 or 9 back in November.

    You are correct, though, that next two games can provide a boost.

    Can't afford to lose either of the next two.
