    Ranking?

    If we beat St. Louis, then beat #23 ND (assuming they beat NW) do you think we break top 25? just get votes?

    Re: Ranking?

    They will probably put ND at #25 and us around 35 just because they are ND and we are ISU.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    We haven't beaten anybody good before this to deserve a top 25 ranking just yet but I bet we'd get some votes. Let's not look ahead just yet...

    I'd go with everything here. We haven't beaten anybody good yet, although we have pounded the weak teams on our schedule, so that gives me confidence about the team we have.

    I think we'll be getting votes, should we get the two wins. I think the chances are very good that we'd be ranked going into the Iowa game, and hoping that the destruction we unleash on them doesn't somehow weaken our position.

    Re: Ranking?

    If we win this Chicago Tourney, we won't be rated, but we'll certainly be on everybody's radar, which is a lot more than can be said for right now (we have a lot of individuals that like us, but even more that know about Brackins and nothing else).

    I think we'll get some votes but not Top 25 material until we are undefeated after the UNI/California games.

    Kinda the same thing that I'm thinking. Probably get a few votes but would need a couple of wins against some solid teams to break into the top 25.

    Re: Ranking?

    If we are 9-0 after the Cal game I'm pretty sure we will be ranked. Though for that to happen we would need 4 straight quality wins. This is a big 2 week stretch coming up for us when it comes to March. Win 3 out of 4 against SLU, ND, UNI and Cal and we should be sitting pretty.

    Every one of those games are winnable games for this team

    If we just can go 2-2 in our next four games I wont be upset. But if we can go 3-1 I will be REALLY happy!

    If we want to sniff NCAAs we have to have an upset or two in the non conf. season

    No, I doubt it. I think if we do beat both SLU and ND/NWern we will be on the radar, top 50 or top 40. Maybe a vote or two but i highly doubt we'd be rated. Now, if we do that, then beat Cal, and go undefeated into Duke and beat Duke....I'm fairly certain we'd be in the top 25 unless Duke loses to like 4 cupcakes.

    I wonder if Houston isn't tougher than these next four teams.

    Re: Ranking?

    I kind of like flying under the radar right now anyways. National expectations aren't high and the recognition we get once we have "arrived" will be worth the wait. I don't want national people talking us up too much right now, it puts unnecessary expectations. If we can at least hold our own or beat Cal and/or Duke I think we'll finally get the recognition that is deserved. A win against ND will at the very least get us on the radar as a team to keep an eye on over the next few weeks.

    Likely somewhere in the middle of those teams. They just score a lot of points but give it up too.
