    Re: Are we still going to the tourney?

    We win out @OU, vs OSU, and @WVU to secure the #4 seed in the tourney.

    We face OU again in the 4-5 game and beat them a third time, which brings us to a rematch with KU in the 1-4 game in the semis.

    We beat the Beakers by 10 in the semis to advance to the championship game, where we lose in a track meet with OSU.

    At 24-10, we earn a 7 seed in the dance.

    Re: Are we still going to the tourney?

    We absolutely have to beat Okie State (assuming we don't win any in the Big 12 tourney). I think we'll beat OU and OSU and lose at WVU and we'll be dancing.

    at least 2 wins are needed to get in...at Oklahoma and home vs Okie State would make it a lock

    Re: Are we still going to the tourney?

    Take two out of the remaining three regular season games and it's a lock. Any wins in the conference tourney just solidify our spot and I hope keep us out of that 8/9 game in the first round or whatever the hell the NCAA calls the Thursday/Friday games.

    Why does everyone think we'll lose @ WVU? I know we are not a very great road team but this WVU is young and have some AWFUL shooting slumps. They really struggle to score against superior teams and their home crowds have been VERY tame as of lately.

    I think are hardest game yet is @ OU. OSU is a better team but we get them at Hilton at least - and EVERYONE around our program is gonna be PO'd and want a revenge home win for the KU job. Just gotta find a way to slow down Smart because you can't stop him completely.

    I predict we lose @ OU and win the last two and we'll be looking at a close call to be in the tourney, but only need 1 in the big 12 tourney to make it a lock.

    Win two, in easily. Win one, probably in but sweating. I think we will do enough to be in.

    Re: Are we still going to the tourney?

    I think we have better shot at OU vs. WVU due to different matchups. If we are going to lose one of the road games it will be at WVU in front of a ****** crowd where we have little intensity (Tech). I think we'll beat OU relatively comfortably.

    We are for sure getting in. The only way we don't is if we lose out which isn't going to happen.

    Re: Are we still going to the tourney?

    I know last night will stay a loss, and there is no actual asterisk on the schedule..but with all the coverage this is continuing to receive, if we are right on the bubble, I think when the committee examines our schedule they will remember how it went down when seeing that loss. Still doesn't get us the win, but I do think all the coverage may help

    Re: Are we still going to the tourney?

    If ISU relies on the emotion/revenge thing instead of focusing on the game, then I'm not sure it will happen. I'm being a debbie downer, but they would need a much stronger foundation on defense and less reliance on 3 pointers to get to that point.

    The next three are going to be tough--OU and OSU both showed they can play well late (against KU), and there really is something about playing at WVU that feels uncomfortable.

    This ISU team's lack of ability to make crucial stops is catching up to it. That being said, there's enough leadership there that they may pull it out. If Musberger were able to make the decision, they'd be in for sure the way he was pimping up the Clones last night! (I believe he actually claimed they're in throughout the broadcast).

    You've watched us all year right? We can easily lose out. Lost at TT and UT for ****** sakes! We can also win out…never know what this team is going to do. Also it doesn't help that the opposing team always seems to have a player play the game of his life against us. At OU and OSU at home are going to be VERY difficult games to win…and they are must-win games.

    One more win means three or four more losses through the tournament. That is not a good enough resume with 20-12 or 20-13. We need to win two more.
