    Hassels Tweet

    Wow RT @HS_BHGP: If Iowa's games ended w/ 45 secs left, they would be 25-8 with sweeps of Minny and Wisconsin and a berth in the B1G semis.
    This got me thinking - heading into the Big 12 tournament, if Iowa State's games ended with just 45 seconds left, they would be 25-6 with sweeps over Kansas and Okie State, finished first in the Big XII, and probably would've been a 2 seed.

    If you end our games with just 6 seconds left, we are 24-7 with a sweep over Kansas, first in the Big XII, likely a 2-3 seed.

    This isn't intended to be a kick in the nuts, it's a motivator - we ARE that good, and we CAN make a big run in this tournament

    Lunardi's latest has an intriguing opportunity:Bracketology - NCAA College Basketball Brackets and Predictions - ESPN

    Beat Mizzou and take our shot at Duke.

    That also lines up an Elite Eight shot at Kansas again.


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

    A shot at Mizzou? Me likey. I haven't got my fill of Phil Pressey whining this year.

    It's funny because hawk fans think he's a cyclone fan.

    haha, I could see it from both sides. But since leaving 13, seems like he's shown a lot of love for Iowa in his tweets - not a lot of Iowa State info.

    It isn't a big deal, I just don't think he'd care about that information

    I'd love to switch with Temple in that scenario. Creighton, then Kansas, and then a very winnable sweet 16 game regardless of who we face.

    There are probably 75 teams that you could break down like this and their seasons are 180 degrees different. It's about as legitimate as saying if all of the teams Iowa played only put 1 player on the floor for each game Iowa would be 31-0.

    I don't know how we moved up after last night. Also, I think they'll try to put us in an different bracket than kansas so we don't play them until later

    Yeah, because playing 5-on-1 is the same as teams unintentionally banking in 3 pointers.

    Doubtful there are 75 teams it can be said to the same degree as it is for ISU and Iowa. The fact there are a few other teams it can be said for does not diminish that the difference between good and great seasons was very, very small...and in the case of ISU, heavily influenced by the way the ball bounces, not that the other teams played better.
