    West Region: #9 vs. #12/13, #6 vs. #2/10

    One of the most messed-up regions in the history of the tournament at this point. Truly wide open.

    If Iowa State beats Ohio State... the Final Four becomes a very, very real opportunity! I know that Fred and the team are already believing - but now it is becoming closer than it has at any point since 2000 for me as a fan. Wow!

    GO CYCLONES!!!

    Wild, Wild West.


    ďUrgency,Ē Rhoads said. ďThatís exactly what I told our staff. Itís exactly what I told our players. Urgency in getting your job done. Thatís in a 100 percent rate of speed at executing your responsibility ó whether itís a fit, whether itís a tackle, whether itís a route, whether itís a cut-off block. Everybody needs a little bit more urgency in coaching and playing.Ē

    One game at a time. If we don't beat OSU, it doesn't matter who was in the rest of the bracket.

    While this is very true, we are on a fan message board and we aren't playing tomorrow (unless you are secretly Anthony Booker). You better believe I am looking ahead at the possibilities if the team can take care of business tomorrow!

    OSU will easily be the best team that ISU would play on a hypothetical Final Four run until they were to make it there, so if ISU does win, there really is a fantastic chance of getting to Atlanta.

    Ohio State is an extremely tough matchup, but Arizona could be even tougher with their athletecism....

    I can almost guarantee the West winner will be either OSU, Zona, or ISU

    How freaking sweet would it be to meet Michigan freaking State in the final 4.

    OK, Ohio State first.

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

    No you can't. This is March Madness. You can barely guarantee that there will be oxygen.

    Region-shattering like this has happened.

    It doesn't always continue all the way through -- many times the highest seed left entering Sweet 16 manages the mine field to the Final Four.

    I hope ISU bucks that trend and explosion continues.

    I agree.
