    No sweating today - our Cyclones are automatic qualifiers and had a fantastic season! Where are we headed? Who will we play? We find out later today.

    It's the best time of the year in sports. And it's always great to be a Cyclone!

    Chat about Selection Sunday here. Go Cyclones!

    I want to see everybody's predictions on seed, location, and opponent. I think we are a 3 playing Tulsa in San Antonio.

    Wonder if they will have a camera on the team when their name is called.

    I predict we'll be the #2 seed. I'm not sure about location, but I have it narrowed down to 4 possible:

    HiltonNorth
    HiltonSouth
    HiltonWest

    Going to be interesting to see if they downgrade Kansas to a 3 seed due to Embiid injury or not.

    If we do not get a two seed and we do not get to go to St. Louis (or Milwaukee I suppose), I hope we at least get another day of rest by playing on Friday.

    I'll take the S-curve plunge, pre-Sunday tournament finals, mainly because nobody is going to care about it 17 hours from now. (Or even 17 seconds)

    Embiid is a freak, game changer for them. Kansas was 2-2 without him. Back injuries are scary for a player. There must be a reason they shut him down. If he isn't playing, a 3 seed would be justifiable for KU

    Palm bumped us up two the 2 line in St. Louis.

    Lunardi still has us as 3 playing in San Antonio.

    And he has Iowa as a 10 playing in St. Louis :no::realmad:

    Lunardi doesn't worry about location at this point. No chance Iowa plays in STL.

    I am thinking it's 65/35 for us to get a 3/2 with 65% for the 3. Hopefully Michigan lands in Buffalo for the first weekend, not Milwaukee. That will be something to keep an eye on if they are announced before us.
