    Re: What record will the Cyclones finish with?

    20-10 overall, 11-7 conference record heading into the Big 12 tourney. Non-conference losses to Michigan, either UNI or Iowa, and one in the December tournament to... Boise State. We are swept in conference by KU and OSU, split with Baylor and OU, lose one other.

    This. I think we could easily win that tourney but foresee some frustrating games instead. I would tab that three game stretch as most likely to evoke a cf meltdown.

    Wow people. One does not simply waltz into Hilton Coliseum...

    Also, the game @ BYU is like what other teams face when they come to Hilton...

    Re: What record will the Cyclones finish with?

    I left my crystal ball at home to know the actual outcome but I'm predicting we win more games than we lose and have our dancing shoes packed again this year.

    Re: What record will the Cyclones finish with?

    I don't think we lose more than one game at Hilton this year. My guess would be Michigan or either KU/OK State

    I don't think the Clones lose more than one game all year.

    Re: What record will the Cyclones finish with?

    8-4 non-conf

    12-6 conf

    20-10 going into the tournament needing a win or two to solidify a NCAA berth.

    22-8 good for fourth in the conference and a tourney birth.

    Re: What record will the Cyclones finish with?

    From February 8 to March 1 is a really light part of the schedule. That stretch seems to be prime for a Hoibergian late-season run.

    TCU
    @West Virginia
    Texas Tech
    Texas
    @TCU
    West Virginia
    @ Kansas State

    I don't think it is unreasonable to expect wins out of all those games, K-State being the toughest.

    After that, win at Baylor, and get Okie St in front of an insane Saturday Hilton crowd to end the regular season. Phew, sign me up.

    I like our team this season (I'm perpetually optimistic when it comes to basketball, even more so with Hoiberg at the helm).

    I'm going with 25-8 with an appearance in the Big 12 tourney championship. I don't know what seed that would get us. A 5 maybe? 4? I'll go with 6.


    I don't bring my own opinions, just attack others.

    Re: What record will the Cyclones finish with?

    Also, you have to be extremely mediocre to not make the tournament nowadays (see: Iowa 2012-13). The bubble is soft a month before the tournament and only gets softer. 19-12, 20-11, those types of records in a major conference provided you win 1-2 big home games, are going to be in the tournament for the forseeable future.

    This. Big 12 is going to send 5 teams no matter how down the conference is, if you can't get in the top half of your conference you don't have anyone to blame but yourself for not getting in

    I like it.

    "Hoibergian": (1.) expressive of awe; (2.) to be of a nature to "finish strong" or "close a season well." Example:That team was Hoibergian.

    That record with those results could still reach 8/9 seed, 10/11 comfortably.
    Worst-case: 16-14 (9-9/8-10) (6th/7th, NIT)
    Best case: 23-7 (14-4/13-5) (Tie 2nd, 4/5 seed)
