    Re: BLOG: Some mid-week musings

    I'd rather a play a 1 seed in the 3rd round (2nd game) than a 3 seed IF the 3 seeds are Michigan, Florida, Michigan State, and Arizona. Those 4 teams scare me more than Kansas, Georgetown, Gonzaga, and Indiana.

    As for tomorrow, it shouldn't be that hard to being it one more time as fans. We only get one more shot at a Hilton game if all goes right tomorrow.


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

    Plus, I'd really like it for all the guys, especially with how many seniors we have. For all the stress we get in late game situations and defensive play, I really like our team. Not just to watch, but as players and people. Seem like a great group of people.

    I just want to get in so I can ask my Iowa friends what time their NCAA tourney game is since I somehow missed their bowl game.

    Re: BLOG: Some mid-week musings

    What will be interesting is if the Cyclones can get back up to a 10 seed by winning these last two (and 1-1, or 0-1 in tourney), and see if the Selection Committee makes us square off against LE.

    But this week just points out how stupid people were for ever thinking we were a lock. We are squarely on the bubble and at this point, I just want to see us not pee this season down our legs. With this much upperclass leadership and experience, missing the dance would be a big fail.

    Also the people that thought we wouldn't make it, you can't leave them out.

    How many "must win" games has this team lost so far this year, again?

    i wasn't in either of those crowds, but to be fair to those you mention, we aren't in the tourney yet. if we lose out, we won't make it. i don't think that will happen, but it isn't out of the realm of possibility either.
