    Looks like depending on where you look, the cyclones are anywhere from a 6 to 8 seed at the moment.

    It would be really nice to get a 6 seed to stay away from the powerful 1s and 2 seeds this year.

    How much will the cyclone seeding be impacted by the conference tournament?

    6 seed would be fine with me. Playing a 3 or 4 not that much different.

    Then if they make it to the 16, playing a 2 seed much easier than a 1 seed this year.

    This also assumes they don’t lay an egg in round 1

    We have a chance to play ourselves up a little IMHO. Without our six game or so swoon our seeding would be more set but lots of the talking heads still have respect for the team that a ton of our fans do not. One and done would be bad. Win some and we maybe prove we are back on track and get a 6.

    It's funny how worked up some people are about the seeding considering everyone seems to think we aren't going to win another game.

    I get the feeling we will be a 7 seed with a loss to Baylor on Thursday.

    I don’t think we are going to win another game, but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t want to see our chances raised on getting a better draw.

    I think we’ll be an 8 or 9 unless we win at least one in KC.

    Beat Baylor and snag a 6 would be ideal.

    That said, we likely can’t beat Baylor so we will be a 7.

    Even with loss to Baylor, floor is a 7 seed, unless a few teams in seeding vicinity stack up high-end wins in tournaments.

    Does it hurt painting everyone with such a broad brush? Seems like it would be hard on the shoulders.

    Zero wins KC - 7

    Two or three wins KC - 5

    Sûre hope they beat Baylor. Being a 6 seed is a lot betterment than a 7 seed IMO. You get to play an 11 seed in Round 1 and at worst a 3 seed in Round 2

    If we lose out that will not make me very happy. That is all.... if they can keep up the intensity for an entire game this won’t happen.

    Nothing like the pain from Fred leaving her. He didn’t even send her a Twitter DM.

    Time for the annual reminder that the importance conference tourney games is not that great, historically. I’ll go on record and say the floor for ISU is a 7-seed, the ceilings a 5, and they’ll need to win at least 2 games to move up from 7.

    I’ve beem wrong before (frequently), but the tournament games are generally no more important than the preceding 30.

    Yeah, the Big 12 tournament is more important for our state of mind than for seeding. I agree that we are probably in the 5 to 7 range depending a bit on this next week.
