    3/11 MBB Rankings

    ISU not even receiving any votes? We beat the #13 team then get a Big 12 road win to finish regular season at 21-10 last week and nothing? I'm sure a lot of other teams receiving votes have similar records, and some with easier schedules. Why no respect?

    We're not a top 25 team. Top 40 i can buy, but not top 25.

    Re: 3/11 MBB Rankings

    We don't deserve to be ranked or getting votes. Justify how a 10 loss team with bad losses at Tech, at Texas, and at Iowa deserves votes, especially over any of the other teams getting votes.

    If we were 7-8 loss team and this was still the case, then we have a beef.

    Thank you for agreeing with me. There are about 15 teams listed as receiving votes outside the top 25, which would equal 40!

    Who cares? As long as we're playing in the tournament we have as good of shot as anyone to win. Rankings go out the window.

    Except thats not how the polls work. All that means is that there are 15 other teams that somehow managed to get votes inside the top 25. It doesnt mean anyone voted those teams top 40. Since its pretty clear we're not top 25, we didnt get votes.

    Re: 3/11 MBB Rankings

    is there a more worthless achievement than "receiving votes" a week before the NCAA tournament?

    making the dance is all that mattes at this point

    Maybe it's because Fred is not a good motivator.

    I dunno, a team with only two bad losses and 8 against solid teams should still be considered close to the top 25 with the wins ISU has. Top 35 fo sho.

    ISU is a top 15 team at Hilton. ISU is maybe a top 100 team outside of Hilton.

    Re: 3/11 MBB Rankings

    The rankings sometimes feel really arbitrary, but by any historical standard we shouldn't be ranked right now. Give us 2 out of the 4 games we got ****'d out of and it's a different story.
