    Latest ESPN Bracketology

    ESPN - Bracketology

    Charlie Creme has us as one of the last four in, at a #11 seed in Des Moines playing #6 seed Ohio State. He also had the following to say about our position:

    "The Cyclones, like Texas, are 7-9 in the Big 12. Unlike Texas, they don't have the resume of big wins. The loss to finish the season at Nebraska hurt, and a first-round tournament loss to Colorado would probably be the end of Iowa State's NCAA chances."

    Personally, I'm with him. I know a lot of people think we're in because of the strength of the Big 12, but I think we need to beat Colorado to have a chance; ending a sub .500 conference season with two losses to mediocre conference teams doesn't bode well (even with all of the adversity we faced). With that said, I think our play in the conference tournament will put to rest any doubts about whether or not we'll get in. Let's go Twister Sisters!

    I agree beating Colorado should finalize things. Any good places to eat with that game on the tv in the Des Moines area?

    Boy, we are really cutting it close.

    The CU game is almost must win. Due to the strength of the conference, if we win tomorrow, I think we are in barring some weird results from other conference tournaments.

    As host of the Des Moines site, I think the NCAA really wants us to make it.

    I feel sorry for the #7-#6 seed if we get a #10-#11 seed in Des Moines. With our fans, that would not be an upset at all.

    All we need to do is take care of business tomorrow and we should be golden.



    I hope.

    I thought winning at Oklahoma State sort of late in the season was quite impressive!
