    I think the Cyclones need to win the last 4 and then get to the tourney championship game to have any chance at a 3 seed in the NCAA's. We just don't get much respect nationally.

    I think if we played tougher non-conf. schedule with some bigger names on it, we would get more respect.

    Hey, how did Texas sneak past us? I thought we won in Austin?!

    Re: New Poll and Bracket

    I think we can afford to lose 1 more and get a 3 seed.

    The one could come in conf (say OSU), but if it comes in the tournament it needs to be in the champ. game.

    Re: New Poll and Bracket

    does a 3 seed move us away from UCONN or just move it to an elite eight matchup instead of the sweet sixteen?

    we want a 3 seed, at least postpones it until the elite eight. Who knows whether we will be in UConn's bracket or not though. I think a strong finish with a couple strong wins OSU/A&M/OU/Texas will be important, and with the tourney going on right at seeding time, being hot at the tourney helps. OSU and ND is mudding the waters in the 2-3 seeds. Another questionable loss by either moves them down. Iowa wins are valuable to us right now too. Like to see their RPI get over that 50 mark to give us at least one top 50 win.

    Actually, I think ISU WBB gets plenty of respect. A lot of the media and coaches have been favorable of ISU this year. Even Creme is a little more complimentary than usual. And, I look for Lacey to be on the all-Big 12 team, where she wasn't to start the season. Yori said she is one of the best point guards in the county. People are noticing except for Abby Waner(see BF twitter). To be in the top 15 and have a pansy non-conference schedule like we did, how would anyone know we were this caliber of team until recently. Though it is clear we weren't this good to start the season, which tourney selection will reflect - they like teams on the upswing more than fizzlers.

    Its all on this team to prove it now. The need to win some big games the next few weeks. Can't lose the games we are supposed to win, and need to win a couple we are not expected to.

    Re: New Poll and Bracket

    I just don't buy Nebraska in the top 5. Not the way they played against us in Lincoln. They also barely beat a horrible Missouri team.
    I'll be watching to see how they do in Norman this week.

    We'll be a 4 seed. Then we'll just hope we don't get UConn. 3/4 chance we don't.

    Re: New Poll and Bracket

    I think Nebraska will be upset in the Big Dance. I just have that feeling.

    This Cyclone team has exceeded my expectations. Honestly, in the beginning of the seasons, I would be glad if the team could be in the tourney considering this is a "rebuilding" period, but turns out this is a reloading period. I just hope that the team will not run out of gas in March/April.

    I'd rather not play Stanford again either. I don't want our freshmen posts to have to go up against Appel.

    The only April games are the Final Four. If running out of gas in April becomes an issue, I don't think anyone here will be complaining. :)

    Why? I think they stand a better chance than Weiben did.

    A senior, or even sophomore, Prins and Poppens, yes. A freshman Prins or Poppens in their first elite eight/sweet sixteen? I think nerves will get the better of them and they'll get intimidated.
