    Bracketology just isn't the same when you're so far inside the bubble.

    I would love to see us play UCLA / Alford - we would pound them like a veal cutlet.

    Iowa will drop if they can't figure things out, nice having 7 B12 teams, but realistic alot can happen these next 4 weeks as I see Baylor going back to defending the NIT at this time and WV coming into the fold.

    Seven Big 12 teams in. Not too shabby.

    I wouldn't mind playing the Fighting Alford's in the next round. They look cotton-soft compared to our guys.

    How nice would it be for ISU to get a 3 seed and play in Milwaukee?

    If you told me that is exactly how the pairings would be set...I would be very satisfied with that!

    I'm surprised that WVU didn't get a mention... how are they not on the bubble?

    Look at their record and schedule. They won't be in the tournament.

    Pfft, you think the selection committee looks at that stuff? No way.

    Good Point. It is really going to feel weird just over reacting about being 2,3,4, or 5 seed and region on Selection Sunday.

    Any one know what fan base Jerry Palm has turned to for trolling this year?

    I look at Iowa's resume as alot like ours last year. No glaring losses but no real quality wins. They've benefited greatly from their schedule, where there was always a "buffer" game to avoid those 3+ game losing streaks. Unless they get things turned around, I see them in that 7-9 seed range.

    I'd like to agree with you but they have bad losses.

    Too bad they lost to Virginia Tech and Purdue. Also, they maybe will win 3 with the rest of the Big 12 schedule.

    We beat a solid BYU team, Oklahoma State, Baylor twice, Oklahoma twice, K-State and didn't lose games we shouldn't of outside of Texas Tech and maybe at Texas. Our resume was fine, we had 7 wins over tournament teams.

    Still pretty similar to theirs this year. Tech and Texas were both bad losses, OU we only beat at home, and BYU and Baylor were NIT teams. K-State and the OSU wins at home were pretty solid though.
