    Re: ISU #11 in Final Coaches Poll

    We finished with a better record and beat Vanderbilt head to head...

    We beat Vandy this year and made it to the elite eight but we are behind them.

    Re: ISU #11 in Final Coaches Poll

    I wonder why we are ranked lower than Texas A&M and Vanderbilt. We beat them - I think we should be ranked a little bit higher. But it'still an excellent season.
    Anyone knows whether this is the highest end-of-season rankings for the Team under BF ?

    That's funny. I could ALMOST swear that we went to the elite 8? Hmm. Guess that was just a dream.

    Ouch, Tennessee didn't even make the final 25. I'll bet it's been a long time since that's happened.

    Yay, Iowa State fans foaming at the mouth again about getting screwed over in arbitrary and meaningless rankings - my day is now complete...

    Re: ISU #11 in Final Coaches Poll

    I don't know - it's about what I expected. Especially since it's the final poll. Less about who could be who anymore.

    While we won the head to heads -

    -We didn't win a conference title. Or even play in the game. They both did.
    -We play in the big 12 north. (works in the argument for atm, not for vandy though since they play in the SEC)
    -We couldn't have had an easier path to the elite 8. our Tourney number was 34 (13+12+9). Vandy was a 19. (aTm however, was a 31...). Plus we got trounced by a team that got trounced. Granted...it was uconn....

    Would have been nice to have been higher...but probably about what we were.... Oh well. still a great season

    vandy did beat KSU, a 5 seed, and played the 1 seed real close. we beat a 13, a 12, and a 9, had to pull some heroics to beat the 9, then got spanked silly by the 2. Plus we lucked out since we did not have to play duke or tennessee.

    I don't necessarily know how we lucked out in not playing them - I figure had Ball St not destroyed them we would have.

    Re: ISU #11 in Final Coaches Poll

    Does anybody else think that there is no need for final polls in anthing other than football? Why have a final poll in a playoff system? I would rather finish out of the Top 25 and make it to the Elite 8 than finish 5th in the final poll and get beat in the First Round.

    Agree. Just because we made the Elite Eight doesn't mean that we're one of the best eight teams in the country. We got some breaks.
    We didn't have to play a ranked team (rankings prior to NCAA tourney) until Stanford.
    It was a great, great year. The team really rose to the occasion when it counted the most.
