    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.

    Just Winn baby!


    Utah Utes, Illinois Illini. The University of Pennsylvania thought about following this pattern by calling themselves the Pennsylvania Pencils. However, they were afraid their students would start chanting "We're No. 2"
