    No P5 team should ever accept a "bid" to those anyway.

    And I think it's rare for P5's to accept a CBI bid. Or if not rare, uncommon. Not sure how many have played in CBI. CIT, even more so. Do schools still have to pay to play in CIT --- or maybe both?

    Probably won't be "pretty."

    If ISU was closer to full-strength and a bit closer to cusp of bubble, the remaining schedule would provide "opportunities" to collect notable wins.

    Alas, that ship sailed.

    As it is, 3 of 4 remaining opponents have NCAAT aspirations and are trying to (a) lock a bid/elevate tournament seeding (WVU); (b) avoid sliding too close to bubble territory (TCU, OU). Two of those three are road games for Iowa State. The other, OSU, could be fighting for NIT.
