    May just be one of those guys who has to have a team prove it to him before he believes it. I'll take him as a recent convert to the Fred.

    Not surprising when Jerry loves the Big 10 and we are in first place in the Big 10 at 2-0

    Palm's biggest thing is just playing real teams. We've done that this season and we've also beaten all of the "real" teams.

    Damn. I'd take a first round match up with Drexel, then either Louisville or Toledo for a trip to the Sweet 16. We could easily go to the Final 4 from there.

    This. Jerry is a slave to the Big 10 and with 2 wins over "his" teams he finally thinks ISU deserves some credit.

    Lot of season left between now and the dance...but it's nice to get a little love from someone who rarely gives us any. :)

    I'm shocked we aren't listed in the 16 seed play in game.

    Florida as a 3 seed in that bracket would get UL Lafeyette, Dayton, and Villanova (as a 2!?) to go to the Elite 8. Give me that position please. Just throw Wisc in at the #1 in that bracket and it'd be straight Final 4.

    ESPN BPI has ISU as a 3 seed. Both indices seem comparable.

    Jerry puts more emphasis on road and neutral wins than the commitee.

    His 1-thru-4 seedlings make more sense overall right now than Lunardi's.

    Louisville as a 5 is lower than I would have thought.

    He must have been drinking heavily when he did this, based on his past comments and projections.

    Looks like he has us as 3rd best team in Big12 behind OSU and Baylor.

    It seems low until you compare resumes. Not much there for UL so far. Seeding could be a little better, but not too much. Lunardi has Louisville as a 1 seed, which is silly at this point.

    To Palm's defense...if I was doing his job, I would probably have a big 12 homer slant to my bracket.

    Figured we would be in his first 4 out.

    Intriguing possible matchup in his bracket. Could Iowa State make 1 seed Syracuse pay for their zone? Outside shooting is generally the key against a zone, but Syracuse's matchup zone isn't your standard 2-3 or 1-3-1...
