    ***2014 Bracketolgy***

    Bracketology - NCAA College Basketball Brackets and Predictions - ESPN

    Lunardi has us at a 3 seed. And I love the teams we are paired with. I'm not scared of Memphis, Tennessee, or the 7, 10, and 2 seed.

    The Bracket Project's Bracket Matrix - 2014

    Bracket Matrix, aggregate bracket site, has us average 3.46. All of the brackets that updated Monday have us at a 3 or 4 with one 5 seed.

    Post any others that you find interesting.

    I would take that subregion in a heartbeat. That path would have Elite-8 potential. Being a 3 seed and placed in Raleigh, however, would be semi-bogus.

    Villanova is a very good team and can give peeple fits. They play very tough defense. Ignore the ridiculous 3 point explosion that Creighton laid on them the other day, Nova is very good. I think it's crazy Lunardi moved Kentucky up to a #2 seed, that Mizzou is still in the bracket AT ALL and that Kansas jumped all the way to a #1 seed over teams like Wichita State, SDSU and Florida. Surprising.

    Re: ***2014 Bracketolgy***

    Lunardi's bracket seems fairly realistic. I could micro-nitpick at least one thing: He needed to flip UC Irvine w/ Georgia State. GSU as 14 is much closer to site than the 3; UCI & San Diego State are roughly same distance to site. Not a major issue, but it's avoidable.

    Then again, I think I'd rather face Georgia State than Irvine, so it'd be OK.

    But they play relatively small ball like us. That is why I don't fear them as much as a team that might have athletic bigs like Kansas.

    7 out of 10 Big XII schools in the bracket...we are the toughest conference on the board at this point. Gonna be a slugfest to get through conf season (as we are already seeing).

    Go Cyclones!

    I think 7 schools would set a percentage record.

    Re: ***2014 Bracketolgy***

    I have been watching Memphis all year, cause my roommate is from there. They remind me a lot of ISU. They can beat anybody on any given night, but they can lose to anybody on any given night. They have a good front court, and have ability to light it up from 3 point line, BUT it's probably the best bracket we could hope for. I'd love to see us in a region with those teams- maybe a little closer to home, though!

    ISU isn't going to get closer to home than that. The pods in St. Louis will go to Kansas and Wichita State, the pods in Milwaukee will go to Michigan State and whatever other Big 10 team is a Top 4 seed and the pods in San Antonio will go to Oklahoma State and Creighton (if they keep a Top 3/4 seed). If ISU pulls up to a #2 seed they could get into San Antonio ahead of Okie State or Creighton but that's not much closer than Raleigh. In general, the sites suck this year. Bring back Kansas City or Omaha!

    Location wise if you are an ISU or Iowa fan, St. Louis or Milwaukee would be ideal. I am hoping Iowa gets placed in San Antonio. Hell I might even go to SA if ISU gets placed there. There is not a better place to hang out with a bunch of fans from your favorite team than the Riverwalk.

    With all the gloom and doom on this site it's a refreshing reminder that we are still slotted as a top 4 seed.

    Re: ***2014 Bracketolgy***

    I guess it's possible with the pod system that we have for the bracket and 2 pods have to play at each site. But find it hard to believe that the committee would let ISU stay in Raleigh as a 3 seed and for Duke as a 4 seed to go out to San Diego.

    I thought the point of the pod system was to allow the top 4 seeds in each region to stay relatively close to home given the sites of the second/third rounds?

    Exactly. I would venture to guess that the same posters going crazy and melting down would have jumped at the chance to be a three seed at this point in the season! It's awesome. I will be ecstatic if ISU can hold the line and maintain a three seed here on out. I think it will require them to go about 12 - 6 in the conference though, maybe 11 - 7 with a Championship Big XII Tourney run.

    My guess is that we'll finish 11 - 7 with a 4 or 5 seed.
