    Actually Purdue is 1-1. (Still ahead of Iowa though)

    Question for everyone. Would you rather finish 4th/5th in your conference and go to the NCG, like Michigan last year, or Win the conference and not make the NCG (I don't see Michigan making it this year again). I know I would take a 5th place finish and the NCG every time.

    This is one of the dumbest questions I've ever read - anywhere.

    NCG is the easy pick here, like UConn from a few years ago with Kemba Walker. Even if they had lost the title game they still would have had a better season than Pittsburgh (who won the conference regular season title)

    Exactly. To some extent the NCAA tourney makes some of the conference stuff anticlimatic. I mean Iowa, ISU aren't gonna win the conference, it is all about a NCAA run really, and you are playing for seeding, etc.

    Really? I'd take any conference finish if it meant NCG

    This year Iowa can choose a 5th place finish and a second (third) round exit.

    I'd be happy if we win one NCAA game. I'm sure you are aware that Iowa hasn't been to the NCAA tourney is awhile now.

    Good for Michigan. Like their team and coach. Its even better when it benefits us a little bit.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Fair enough... I don't blame you. This place can be equally ridiculous after a tough loss.

    Ha! Remember the hawkeye narrative was how ISU went 0-2 against the Big 10 last year, and had ISU played Iowa's schedule there would have been no NCAA tourney. Transitive scores and absolutes...it's the foundation for hawkeye arguments. No mention other than excuses this year why ISU went 2-0 against the B10.

    Baylor, who ISU swept last year probably still hasn't finished dunking on iowa either...

    Yeah, and actually that isn't a bad thing. Just getting to play those games makes for a fun season. I hope ISU does a lot more this year, but I'm guessing most Cyclone fans wouldn't have imagined how good this year would be.

    The only downside to Michigan winning is that their coach is getting closer to Orr's record number of wins over there, but that's going to happen unless he retires early.

    This. We are 21-5 with an NCAA appearance all but locked yet some fans are still criticizing this team.
