    2010 Cinderella Team

    Who you got?

    I think Cornell or Wofford is going to do some damage in the tourney. If UNI is a 5 seed, I'll bet the farm that they lose first round.

    Cornell has the power to surprise. Ask Kansas.

    I don't think UNI will be a 5 seed. If they are, I pick them to lose as well, as they'd be the weakest 5 seed by far.

    Probably the worst thing that could have happened for them was to win at kansas, from the perspective of trying to sneak up on anybody in the tourney. ESPN, of course, kept breaking in to that game. Otherwise, it's possible they may have been able to pull an upset or two. As it is, teams will be well aware of them, and what they are capable of now...

    I don't know. It's hard to pick a Cinderella. Because If you think they will do good, it's really not a cinderella pick

    Well, Lunardi has them at an 8 right now. That's a good starting point. At best they'll move up one seed, so now we're looking at a 7 seed.

    If you go by rankings, you'd have to be in the Top 20 to be a 5 seed. I know rankings don't mean that much in seedings, but they can be a good indication. UNI isn't even in the Top 25 and I really don't think they are that good.

    All that being said, if they did somehow end up a 5 seed, they'd have to be the worst of them.

    Correction: Should have actually looked at the rankings, UNI is 25th in the coaches poll and 26th in the AP.

    Re: 2010 Cinderella Team

    Question: Would a freak accident conference champ from a major conference, say ISU winning the Big 12, be considered a cinderella in the same sense as a mid-major?

    Re: 2010 Cinderella Team

    They had been a 9 seed in most mocks so I think 7 may be the highest. Siena is a team that has NCAA tourney experience
