    "I'd have Iowa State clearly on the number 2 line tonight. Cyclones could even make a case for a 1 if Michigan loses."

    "Iowa State has a dozen wins over at-large NCAA tourney teams -- and six of its seven losses came to tourney teams."

    I don't know what he's drinking, but I'll take some of that.

    1 seed is a stretch (I though I heard somewhere that no team with 7 or more losses has ever been a 1 seed before). I think 2 seed is pretty attainable though.

    Gary Parrish@GaryParrishCBS 6hThe more I look at it, I don’t see how Duke or Virginia could get a No. 1. Iowa State actually has a better resume than both.

    I believe that Gary Parrish is every Cyclone's brother from another mother.

    If we had gotten that win over Kansas here at Hilton, I think that they would discuss us more strongly for that last 1 seed, even though our resume is already better than most contenders.

    I think it's crazy if we get a 1 seed. I'm almost certain it won't happen, but if it miraculously does, it shows the parity in college basketball this season.

    Go look at his poll. We're right behind Michigan and Kansas. If we wanted to be difficult, we could make the point that he's underrating us, too.

    Who cares what the guy from Roseanne thinks? This team is going to have a chance no matter who they play or where they're seeded.

    True. But a 1-seed sure makes it easier.

    About 2 teams are deserving of a number 1 seed. And then there are about 10 teams equally deserving of the next 6 spots (2 number 1 seed spots and 4 number 2 seed spots). Tough pickings for the selection committee. You gonna get criticized no matter how you select.

    Also, We just beat Kansas and they might not have Embiid. I'd be ok if they landed at a 3 seed...
