    Should we go to the Big Dance... Where will we be seeded???

    I'm praying for a #7 seed in the Dance.
    We have a few more victories left in us before Selection Sunday!

    Certainly don't want to see an #8 or #9.

    (I selected to make this a poll... but it didn't get offered to me.)

    10 or 11 is more likely...unless we roll everyone in the Big12 tournament. I'm happy with either 10 or 11...we could make a DEEEEP run with that seed.

    Lose the next two: 12 or 13
    Beat WV and lose to OU: 11 or 12
    Beat both, then lose: 10 or 11
    Win beyond that and maybe a 8 or 9, with a 7 possible

    Gotta win 1 more to make sure we avoid that 12 seed play in.

    seriously, an 11 or 12 and play msu or michigan in michigan third round, or play indiana or gonzago somewhere else. Bring on the 1 seed this year.

    Right now they will likely be a 12 seed. Hopefully they win a couple more and get the 10 seed. An 8 or 9 could be deja vu from last season, but at least there is not a clear cut dominate team this season. Every team is beatable. Should be an exciting NCAA tournament. Any team could make a run. There is going to be upsets galore.

    That's why I say bring on the 1 seeds this year. It'd be a higher profile win if we did pull the upset, and there is no number 1 seed I'm more afraid of than a lot of the 3 seeds. Last year there was Syracuse with Melo, until he got hurt, and Kentucky I wanted to avoid. This year, I'm not afraid of anyone, so screw it, put us as a 9, we can take out Indiana, Gonzaga,(has only made it past sweet 16 1 time in it's history, yet it is a powerhouse(too much media hype)) Duke, Miami (scares me a little) But no more scary than playing MSU in michigan second round.

    Re: Should we go to the Big Dance... Where will we be seeded???

    I'm guessing an 11 seed, maybe even a 12, which would not be good. Big 12 is just not strong enough, and ISU is still not a strong road team.

    That being said, whatever the seed, I think this is a team that can be difficult to defend, and can cause a lot of match-up problems for many teams because it just has so many weapons. It all depends on if these guys can get their heads together to play well away from Hilton.


    -Be kind. That is something you will never regret. You will never say to yourself when you are old "I wish I was not good to that person".
