    Reaction if the season plays out as follows

    Just curious what your reaction would be if we finish the season as follows:

    @Batylor - L
    Tex Tech - W
    Kansas - L
    @Oklahoma - L
    Okie State - L
    @WVU - W

    We receive a high seed in the NIT, barely missing out on NCAAs.

    I'll let it play out.

    What happens if you turn Kansas and Okie Lite into W and WVU into L and first round lose in conference tourney. There's quite a few ways to make it nervous time.

    I've always said that 10 games over gets you in without a lot of sweat.
    We've now slipped back to 9. Stay tuned.

    Certainly disappointed given the trajectory that we were on. Fred has done an amazing job so far, and is on track to beat expert projections again. This would mean he would only meet or slightly beat them.

    March Madness is easily my favorite time of year, and it's ten times better when ISU is involved.

    Re: Reaction if the season plays out as follows

    NIT is not a successful season at this point.

    Disappointed, not real pleased, probably hoping to buy tickets to a Hilton game.

    That said, I think the season goes a lot better than that meltdown scenario.


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

    I'll return my season tickets.

    I'll pull my donations.

    I don't believe this scenario will play out.

    Win the home games, sneak one out on the road...in.

    I agree with this. If the original scenario did play out, it sure would make my week of vaca during the 1st two rounds not near as much fun.

    That scenario wont happen. This team has too much talent.

    I believe we one lose one regular season game left... and win two in the tourney.

    Well, that would suck. We aren't going to lose at home to both OSU and KU though.

    Re: Reaction if the season plays out as follows

    W out at home and L out at home and I think we're in...

    What if we trade a W on the road (any of them) for a loss to KU at home? (Don't think it will happen but I'm just saying).

    Still think we're in? I say we're sweating hard...

    Assuming we lose in the first round of the tourney of course, it has been too long.


    My teams: (as of 9/20/13)
    Cleveland Browns: 0-2 - .000
    Cleveland Indians: 83-70 - .542
    Cleveland Cavs: 24-58 - .293
    Iowa State Cyclones (FB): 0-2 - .000

    9/22/18 & 9/7/19
    Akron and Iowa State
    CAN'T WAIT!

    Disappointed. Lots of missed opportunities if that unfolds.
