    Re: so either ODU, Baylor, or Saint Marys

    Baylor's a 3 seed, so I'd say no.

    That is very cool, and is the exact reason why the NCAA basketball tournament is so much more interesting than the BCS.

    I remember my first year following the tournament...



    “One day we’ll be in here celebrating a Big 12 championship,” Rhoads said. “That I can promise you.”

    "I hope to coach here until I retire," Hoiberg said.

    It's like the American Dream in a nutshell. In this tournament, everyone has a chance to earn their way.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Could definitely see that. Its probably between them and duke, possibly A&M

    Definitely not out of the realm of possibility to see the big 12 have 3 of the final 4 teams.

    Re: so either ODU, Baylor, or Saint Marys

    For one of my pools I have Baylor in the championship game after beating West Virginia in the final four. This year's #1 seeds had a lot of weaknesses so it was easy to convince myself that they could go down. But then again, I'm only 18/32 in the first round and 0/1 in the second so what do I know.

    Re: so either ODU, Baylor, or Saint Marys

    I think Baylor will be in the Final Four...Their guards are scary good shooters

    Re: so either ODU, Baylor, or Saint Marys

    It will take people several years to see it and admit it, but I think Baylor is going to be a top 3 program in the league very soon And yes, I said program and not just team. Of course that all depends on them keeping Drew.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Re: so either ODU, Baylor, or Saint Marys

    St. Mary's and Baylor are very good team IMO. If you ever stay up late and watch some of those St. Mary's or Gonzaga games it would be easy to believe they can make the Elite 8.

    St. Mary's showed alot of discipline today. Wouldn't be surprised to see them continue to advance. They are fun to watch.

    I have Baylor in the elite 8


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Re: so either ODU, Baylor, or Saint Marys

    St. Marys is one of the only teams that has been able to consistently beat Gonzaga over the last decade. It seems like they take one from them every year in conference, so it's not as if they have no experience taking down ranked teams or anything like that.
