    Mock NCAA selection

    They do this every year where all types of media people go to Indianapolis and go through a mock selection and seeding where they select the 68 teams and seed them. Some people are live tweeting the results.

    nope. I actually voted for them to be considered but I guess not enough others did RT @dreusche14: Iowa up for consideration?

    Iowa is obviously not in at this point but I have a feeling they may will end up making it.

    These are their automatic qualifiers and teams that are locks...



    Right now Iowa State is one of 43 teams "under consideration"...

    they got 32 teams in so far.
    So that's the mock-committee list that isn't either an at-large lock or auto-qualifier?

    no, that was my list of the guesses of teams that would get at-larges. They had teams like Kansas as an at-large and a tourney championship team so I didn't know how many teams they had to pick.

    Posterology is done just waiting for Sunday. When should we announce 5 or 6 on Sunday?

    they got 32 teams in so far.
    Being as unbiased as possible, if Southern Miss is in the field, Iowa State should be close to the next team in.

    USM has 3 notable advantages: higher RPI (40 vs 53), better non-conference SOS (111 vs 175) and lack of a nagging sub-200 loss.

    Nearly everything else on ISU’s resume is better: top-50 record (2-5 vs. 0-4); average RPI of top-50 losses (23 vs 30), record in 51-100 (4-1 vs. 0-2) and overall SOS (67 vs 104).

    Re: Mock NCAA selection

    I'll guess that Iowa State gets an 11 seed in this mock bracket.

    In my opinion, notable teams who are still not yet in the field after the first day include: Creighton, North Carolina, La Salle, Memphis, Ole Miss, Kentucky, St. Mary’s, Temple, Baylor, Iowa State, Arizona State, Boise State, Villanova, Virginia, St. John’s and Charlotte.


    My guess is Iowa State will be a first four team
    Your guess is probably correct, although I don't entirely agree.

    I still see ISU at just inside the play-in. St. Mary's didn't hurt itself w/ home loss to Zaga, but didn't take advantage.

    Any of these close calls would put Cyclones at a solid 10: @KU, @OSU, @Tech, @UT.

    OK, that makes sense — I thought I might be interpreting it incorrectly.
