    Latest bracketology has ISU in Salt lake city as a 5 seed in the south region. A somewhat nice draw playing houston in 2nd rd and then virginia is the #1 seed in that region. Question is would you take that seed and draw and be in the south region which means no KC for regional site or would you rather be in the Midwest region and play in KC and have a harder draw?

    Midwest region with a harder draw for me. We should be higher than a 5 by tourney time, so it should all work out to be in KC.

    Sign me up for this. Lipscomb the Houston? Very winnable. Then potential Virginia rematch from a couple years ago with/for Shayok. That bracket is very winnable.

    Virginia is as hard as it gets in my opinion.

    I want KC. We could draw the '95 bulls there and I wouldn't be scared.

    I'd prefer leapfrogging Marquette and Kansas and getting Des Moines/KC. Probably need to go 8-2 the rest of the way and win a few in the Big12 tourney to get it done.

    Fortunately the best basketball will be played over the next five weeks. Plenty of time to move up in the brackets.

    I’m hoping we get a 3 seed- which I think is attainable. Stay on the bottom side of brackets away from 1 seeds (Thinking Duke et al) and I think we can play with anyone and can go deep.

    I'll be cheering loudly against Marquette for the rest of their season.

    The same goes for K-Booo, but I'm not sure that even needed to be said

    I’m not sure why he keeps putting ku in Des Moines, they will be in Tulsa if it’s available (which it almost always is in his brackets)

    Salt Lake would be bad for ISU fans. You know those Mormons aren't going to be getting any Busch Light in that town.

    I'd luv to see Shayok light up Virginia the way he lit up ISU while playing for Virginia. lol

    I think its attainable also. Only thing is so far ISU has not got much love. Look at the AP and other rankings they have beat many great teams and have not moved up much in those. Unfortunately the seedings are still done by human Bias

    If Iowa is a 6 seed right now, then it’s getting way too easy to get into the tourney.

    I can always live with whatever seed and draw we get as long as we don’t have a second round matchup with Iowa.

    Does Iowa scare me? Absolutely not. Does the thought of Iowa ending our season scare me? Yes.

    I also enjoy going to the tournament and would prefer to not be around Iowa fans.
