    New WBB Bracketology

    http://sports.espn.go.com/ncw/bracketology

    Now, obviously Charlie Creme can only predict what might be possible for the ncaa's, but his bracketology for this week has the women at a 7 seed, and seven big 12 teams dancing, better than every other conference, save the big east, which has a bijillion teams anyways. (or, 16. same thing.) At least people are noticing them now. Lets hope for a good game at ttech, and a great showing at the big xii's!

    From Charlie Creme's Monday afternoon chat on ESPN.com's The Show:

    Eric - Ames, Iowa:
    Baylor, Oklahoma, and Texas A&M aside, who is your dark horse pick to take the Big 12 title? Or maybe just to make it a whole lot deeper than expected? Nebraska, Iowa State, Texas? A win over at least two of the top 3 is likely needed to take the title. Anyone have what it takes?

    Charlie Creme: (3:15 PM ET ) I'd have to go with Iowa State. ISU is playing its best basketball of the year right now.

    Re: New WBB Bracketology

    i like the fact that we have moved up but i hope we end up in Min. and i really hope we dont end up playing a team like duke or nc in the 2nd round if we win the first.. so with that said i hope we can some how move up to a 6 seed

    It'd be sweet if they played in Minnesota and you guys got to go up and see them play Duke or N.C. though...anything could happen!

    I'm not sure there is a team out there that I hate enough right now to go up against Duke. Those ladies are just kicking the crap out of everyone!

    Re: New WBB Bracketology

    yeah, i noticed that a few hours after i posted it. none of it's premium during the actual chats, for that hour or so that creme (or anybody else on The Show) is in there chatting. I myself am not an insider on espn, so i can't even go back and review the other topics in the chat. *5 year-old voice* "It waaasn't premiuuuum when I posted iiiiit" :-)

    And it wasn't that loaded of a question...whether or not I was fishing for a certain answer, I kept it pretty unbiased. If I had listed myself as from somewhere in Texas, it would have seemed that I was fishing for some Texas love. ;-)

    Re: New WBB Bracketology

    Think SIX. Unless we win the BIG XII tournament, a six is about right. We're likely a 7 now, could move up with 2-3 more wins. We should beat a #11 and have a chance against a #3, especially if we get to play in Minn. I'm hoping for any scenario which gives us a chance to make it to the second week. That would be a great reward for these kids and a real plus for the future of the team.

    Re: New WBB Bracketology

    I think that's a really good analysis. A strong showing the xii tourney could bump us up to a 6 seed, which as you pointed out would be most beneficial! even as a 7, we could quickly find ourselves in a game against a two seed. There won't be ANY undeserving two seeds in this tournament. Prolly will be a lot of 2 seed-deserving teams that get 3 seeds as well. gonna be uphill the whole way

    Re: New WBB Bracketology

    both polls have us ranked at 28th and the rpi has us at 27th according to cstv.com and also on that site they have us as a 7 seed and if we win we would more then likely play Maryland in the 2nd round according to that bracket.. that would be interesting..

    Re: New WBB Bracketology

    Based on realistic hopes -- If we can't be a six, next I'd choose to be an eleven seed. Getting lined up against that 3 seed in the second round is key. The matchups against any of the projected 1&2 seeds is scary at best. The Duke and Tennessee draws in particular will be murder. The 3&4 seeds, you can bet some there will be some upsets there. Any team seeded 5 or higher, if we play great, we should win.

    Re: New WBB Bracketology

    Color me a homer, but I could see these ladies making an elite 8 type of run. Been awhile since we have had this much inside and outside balance and we have a fearless PG who won't backdown. Hope they keep playing the way they are, could be fun to watch.
