    Play defense. Move the ball. ISU wins it all.

    Re: Why not Iowa State?

    This is how the tourney works, any team can get hot and make a deep run. Think VCU a few years ago or let's be real those butler teams probably had less overall talent than this team.

    I don't feel you offered any elaborate detail and were very vague:

    Re: Why not Iowa State?

    I believe 100% that if ISU would have beat Mich St in the Elite Eight round of the 2000 Tourney, ISU would have won it all. Rest of the teams left that year were all beatable. I was at Auburn Hills to watch the result of that game, and in my opinion, ISU outplayed them except the last 6 minutes. Due both to questionable calls AND our ability to execute down the stretch. ISU could have realistically been the National Champions if a few bounces went the other way. So yes, ISU could win a National Championship in BBall, and expect them to compete for it as long as Freddy is here.

    With a better seed, we have a lot better shot at advancing further. If we get hot, anything can happen. That is the beauty of the tournament.

    Re: Why not Iowa State?

    The key is Naz. We need a shooter who can get some quick points off the bench like Tyrus did even more than we did last year. If he gets hot from now on, who knows what could happen.


    This is very important:

    And in your thread you essentially said "we need out sharp shooters to get hot." What's the difference?

    Our shooting and rebounding would have to improve dramatically

    I have never even imagined a group enjoying 19-5 less than this CF bunch. You have shown me that there are still more surprises yet to come.

    Re: Why not Iowa State?

    My response is that I dont think we are good enough. At least not playing good enough. I think our lack of size and poor defense will lead to an exit prior to the final 8. You asked "why not".
