    What's the highest seed we can get?

    If we win the next 3 games and are Big 12 Tourney Champs?

    6 seed? 7?

    Maybe even better. If we're tourney champs the committee may take a harder look at the Okie State, Kansas screw jobs and the @KU banked in three.

    Mathematically?

    A 1 seed. There are 4 of them available.

    You're welcome.

    Re: What's the highest seed we can get?

    I think 4-5 seed, those 3 wins would get us around #15-20 ranking, so if that held we would be right there.

    Re: What's the highest seed we can get?

    I would say a 6 seed would probably be the highest.

    Re: What's the highest seed we can get?

    Assuming opponents would be Kansas then KState or OSU, a 7 seed with an outside shot at a 6 if other teams in that range falter.

    Lose to Okla, most likely = 12
    Beat Okla, most likely = 10
    Beat Kansas, most likely = 8/9
    Beat KSU/OSU, most likely = 7

    I would be pretty surprised with a seed more than one higher or lower in any of those situations.

    Re: What's the highest seed we can get?

    I think a 6-7 seed would be the highest if we beat OU, KU and OSU/KSU.

    Re: What's the highest seed we can get?

    I don't think there is any way we can get to a 4/5 seed. Our RPI wouldn't get in the top 20 with those wins

    Re: What's the highest seed we can get?

    I could see at least a 6 if we win the tourney. The committee has in the past bumped tourney winners higher than they "should" be. Of course that was usually out of the ACC and Big East.

    No it wouldn't.

    I'd see a 6 seed as the highest, 12 seed as the lowest right now. Beat OU, and then hope to avoid the 8/9 game.

    Still think 9 seed is the highest

    win the tourney and I think ISU gets a 6.
    Win 2 gets an 8 or a 9.
    Win 1 gets a 10.
    Lose against OU and I think 50/50 on play-in game.

    Re: What's the highest seed we can get?

    I have ISU locked into the 8/9 seed in my personal bracket predictions. A first round CT loss or a run to the championship moves them out of that spot, in my opinion.

    You're wrong, because rumor has it this year the top four teams will be seeded 0.
