    I'm on ESPN.com!!

    So my question was actually answered by none other than Jay Bilas himself yesterday during his chat.

    I'm about halfway down the page, asking about Iowa State's NCAA chances. He gives a pretty good answer and is actually pretty complimentary of us.

    Of course, now you will all know my name and where I live.....

    Here's the link;

    Pretty simple, must beat a top 25 team, win at least 9 games in conference, and 2 games in the Big 12's.

    Yep...UNI lost to DePaul who is horrible! That could certainly be used against us if we give the committee a reason not to include us (which means we put ourselves right in the middle of the bubble)!

    Not necessarily disagreeing with you, but I think it is more probable that the Northwestern loss will do greater harm. Even when you consider it was neutral court instead of home.

    The UNI lost hurts us, but it has absolutely nothing to do with them losing to DePaul.

    It hurts us because it was a great chance at a quality out of conference win against a future conf. champion and NCAA Tourney team. You need those wins to build a tournament resume. Non-con left us with almost no room for error in the Big 12.

    How is the UNI loss a bad loss? UNI is running away with their league and will be an at large team. Right now, our only potential bad loss is against Northwestern. If NU can pick it up and get some wins that one may not look too bad. ISU's issue isn't bad losses, it's the lack of quality wins. Even though we haven't earned our way into the tourney yet, we still haven't taken ourselves yet either. We just need to start beating teams like Nebraska and Oklahoma on the road coming up.

    Neither UNI or NW loss will matter if they can take care of business in the Big 12. To do that they have to win out at home (which would mean W's over KU and KSU) and get 3 on the road.

    Damn, I thought I was the only ISU fan that got my questions answered on the ESPN.com chats.

    Jay Bilas is the best thing ESPN has going as far as college basketball is concerned, and maybe on the whole network. The dude knows hoops and would just as soon call a spade a spade as kiss some coach's ***. I enjoy listening to and reading his work.

    Right here. I think he is a Duke guy too? But you can't really tell. He covers all schools well. He doesn't seem to have an East coast or ACC bias either. And he loves small schools that do well, and gives them the attention and credit they deserve. He knows great basketball is played even in non-BCS conferences.

    Happy to see he has been getting some sponsorship deals finally too. The guy is very classy and just seems to have a lot of integrity. A real pro.

    Yup. He's a Dukie, but you'd never guess it. He doesn't need to take over games when he's doing color and does a good job of covering multiple teams/topics during a broadcast without coming off like a know-it-all. Certain announcers...cough *VITALE* could learn a lot from him.
