    If ISU could win only 3 more games this year...

    So which would ISU fans rather have: The Cyclones end their terrible drought in the Big 12 tournament by winning the whole thing, or make a run in the NCAAs?

    Pretty easy for me, 2 in the Big 12 and 1 in the NCAA.

    Obvious answer here, 3 wins in the ncaa...that would put us in the elite 8.

    Would you still say that if one was a play in game, so we only made it to the Sweet 16? I probably still would, because nationally the NCAA gets way more attention than winning the Big 12 tourny would.

    I tried playing devil's advocate for the NIT/NCAA thread. But for this one it's gotta be 3 wins in the big dance.

    This is an invalid question since we're not going to be playing in that game.

    Only 1 tournament matters at the end of the season... 3 wins there, please.

    Re: If ISU could win only 3 more games this year...

    The obvious example is the 2000 season.

    What do you remember more:

    Winning the big xii championship or getting to the elite 8? While I definitely remember both very well, that season is very much remembered for that Elite 8 run.

    Although, I wouldn't be too mad about 1 in the Big 12 and then a Sweet 16 appearance.

    Seems like there's been an influx of random/hypothetical threads this week.

    Thursday can't get here soon enough.
