    Re: Iowa State in Luke Winn's "Magic Eight"

    NCAA championship is pretty bold prediction, but I do think ISU could make a deep tourney run. Getting favorable matchups obviously key. Not easy, necessarily, but avoiding teams Iowa State doesn't matchup well with. eg Kansas, Arizona. Kentucky would be a bad "early" matchup for ISU.

    It's possible. I like it.

    Obviously "too early (even though it's just speculation anyway)," but it's nice to be in the discussion.

    Re: Iowa State in Luke Winn's "Magic Eight"

    Too easy, you say? Well, the Magic Eight isn't allowed to be too obvious, and thus cannot simply regurgitate Nos. 1-8 from the AP poll. A few risks need to be taken.

    • Arizona - AP #1
    • Wisconsin - AP #3
    • Syracuse- AP #2
    • UK - best recruiting class (a la 2012)
    • KU - 2nd best recruiting class
    • Florida - AP #7
    • ISU - AP #8
    • MSU - AP #4


    Wow. Cutting edge journalism right there.

    I'll tell you one thing. ISU isn't a team other teams want to see on their side of the bracket.
