    Top 10 Games of March Madness 2013

    We made the list at #2. I feel indifferent. Norlander has some nice things to say about ISU though.

    you know, as much as we love "upsets" the tourney always ends the same.

    My opinion is, no matter the year, you need to make the tourney. But, if you don't make it past the first weekend into the Sweet 16, it makes the whole year kind of a meh.... So it means nothing if we had the #2 game of the tournament because we still lost in the round of 32 so nobody cares.

    Would it have been #1 if ISU had won on a last-second shot?

    Really was a heck of a game. Crappy ending, notwithstanding.

    Pretty much encapsulates my feeling.

    As I think I said in previous threads about that game, it was painful to lose that way, but at one point in the final 10 minutes, it was headed toward that "great game that ends up as a 15-point loss." Had it ended like that, it'd be easier to forget. But ISU churned back into it, and it was memorable.

    Let's envision if the Good Guys won it and went to Sweet 16. What might have happened there? I have no doubt Cyclones could've beaten Arizona. What if that ended in heartbreak? Etcetera.

    Back to the topic: It was an exciting Round-of-32 game, deserves to be on such a list, regardless of rank.

    It was a tremendous game. After watching us dominate ND on the DVR the other night, I thought about watching this one. Just too soon I guess.

    I think more people care than you want to think. Iowa State got a lot of media coverage from this tournament. Regardless of whether we win or lost, Cyclone Nation as a whole got a lot of air-time. That's always a win.

    It was fun to see all the negative nancies in the gameday thread. If you made a post claiming the game was over around the 6 minute mark (I think? Can't remember exact time left in the game when we started our run) then I really hope you slip on a banana peel and fall off a cliff soon.

    I've been a big fan for a long time. I've always felt this way. McD was a plague on ISU basketball so that is worse that it can get. I know we havent made it past the first weekend many times, but there is a wide disparity on how successful I view a season if we can win more than 1 game. Anyone can win 1 game.

    I think the negative nancies peaked during the Oklahoma Big 12 tourney game.
