    We are a Lock.

    In the Tourney. This loss is NOT a season ender. It would have helped our seed in the NCAA Tourney a bit, but we are alright. No way this team doesn't make the NCAA Tourney. We are a lock folks. This is a loss we all should be able to live with.

    Re: We are a Lock.

    They aren't a lock if they commit this many TOs every game. Obviously, that is very unlikely to happen, but it could. Teams sometimes regress.

    I think ISU is very likely in, but they could lose every remaining road game if they play like this and get left out.

    If we take care of business at home we will be fine.

    KU/OSU at home are far from easy games. They'll be fighting for their life, just like us.

    Committee looks at turnovers not wins. Thats why Cal Poly is gonna get in. All about their low turnover margin not their 10-11 record!

    Yes, if. Also if we don't we might not be fine. See how that works? Saying this team is a lock is all your opinion on how you think they will finish the season. We haven't seen it yet.

    I understand, but I'm not sure who is going to beat us at home. Not even KU.

    Re: We are a Lock.

    clones21, you might be trolling everybody, but I'll lay down some good facts.

    A lock doesn't equate 16 wins. To say ISU is a lock is farfetched. Lock has different meanings for people. But none of those apply to ISU. If ISU only wins 2 more games (TCU, Tech) then 18 wins and will be out.

    If ISU had 16 wins, they wouldn't even make the nit.

    I don't get your logic at all on this. If you are trolling, well done.

    Once again just because you think we are going to take care of KU and everybody at home that doesn't mean we are a lock. Not saying I don't think we will get in, just saying we are far from a lock.
