    If ISU gets to 20 wins...

    I know it sounds a little far fetched, but if ISU can get to 20 wins they would have to be a lock for the NCAA tournament. Anyone out there disagree with me?

    Took me a minute, but yes, I would have to agree.

    I almost railed on this as the most idiotic post ever!

    I would have to agree...if we get to 20 wins, I don’t think there is anyway the tournament selection team can deny us!

    That would mean they have won out. And will have won the Big 12 tourny. Automatic Bid!

    They just have to win 6 more games. 2 regular season and 4 in the BIG XII tournament and I would think that they would have to let them in the NCAA tournament after that.

    Not that's optimism.

    But yes - 20 wins makes them an air-tight lock for the dance.

    Re: If ISU gets to 20 wins...

    If that happens, I would appeal to Governor Culver to make 2008 "The Year of the Cyclone". All members of the team would be given permanent tax-exempt status, and McDermott would be given a cabinet position as Official State Miracle Worker. Hilton Coliseum would be named as an official place of worship, and all cars sporting ISU decals and flags would be exempt from traffic violations. That's what I'd do anyway.

    BTW, yes, I would think we would be a lock.

    I know... Slow end to the basketball season and it's been quiet around here since the recruiting news so I'm just stirring the pot a little and making people think.

    Hope you didn't take offense...I thought it was really funny. I was getting ready to type something to the effect of, "What are you smoking?" Then I thought about our next few games and realized where you were coming from.

    Made me think!

    No offense taken. I know sarcasm and being a smarta** doesn't come across very well in type.
