    Another Selection Day goes by...

    Well another year to plop down and watch the teams get selected for the big dance. Problem is, my team Iowa State won't be there. I'm growing very impatient, if not already in a state of total confuse over the debacle that is our basketball program. What year can I plan on watching the selection show and be filled admiration and glee for my Iowa State Cyclones getting in?

    I made this same comment to a friend this morning. Lots of fan bases, much less deserving, are "used" to Selection Sunday including their team nearly every year. Meanwhile, we buy 12,000 tickets per game for a crap program and then sit in silence as the brackets are announced.
    It's not right.

    When they expand the field to 256, then we may be on the bubble and there could be some excitement.

    Probably 2013, after we are all gone and the world has ended in 2012...

    Another Selection Sunday, which means I've been grillin' food all day, have had numerous drinks, and happy that the religious experience that is the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament starts with some selections today.

    Enjoy it, for this is a time for ecelebration no matter if ISU is dancing or not.

    Interesting quetion based on above:

    Over or under it being 5 years until we're in the NCAA tourney again?

    I say over. Two years of suck with McD then at least 3 years of rebuilding from the next coach.

    I absolutely love March Madness, its my favorite time of the year, but its getting harder every year that we are not in the field.

    See, it doesn't get harder for me. It is the same every year.

    First a college basketball fan, Cyclone 2nd.

    I honestly haven't cared much at all about the conference tournaments. At this point I'm just ready for baseball season. ISU basketball has worn me out.

    You have to have a second and third team that you root for during the season with how we have been playing the past 5 years.

    I'll be very surprised if McDermott doesn't make it into the NCAA's next year ... we're talking about Doug, right?

    You have missed some great games, brother.

    As for baseball, the first day and the last day are my favorites. The other 160+ are a complete waste.

    Seriously, what's the difference between 2.5 and 2?

    Over. I'd bet $100 on it.
