    10-8 gets is one win from KU, BU, WVU, or TTU as well as running the table in the rest. That also puts us at a minimum #5 in the conference. I think we're in at that point regardless of the Auburn game.

    But the likelihood of that happening is still very low.

    Definitely some story still left to be told at this point in the season whether we're contending for a tourney spot or not, and that is still interesting to me at this point.

    Can we settle on a rotation? Can we make it interesting down the stretch? Will one of the young guys emerge as a solid contributor alongside Haliburton/Bolton/Conditt?

    I just don't want to see a repeat of 2017-18. I was so ready for that season to end.

    We are getting better cause we couldn’t get possibly lower than we were a week ago.

    It could be much, much worse.
    We've been blown out at Hilton twice which should be unacceptable, but the team has made strides in the right direction. 13 point loss on the road at Baylor is not a bad loss.

    And we destroyed a solid Oklahoma team. I don't get why that game doesn't count in some people's mind? It should give us some hope.

    Feel like i'm trying to be a realist here.
    Oklahoma is certainly a good win. and gives me some hope.. but its not a great win or a season changing win. Those are ones we need to win. Same with the Baylor loss - don't have a negative opinion on the season for losing that game.
    At this point you could argue our resume is every bit the same as OU (minus FAM loss).

    Related question: Say Cyclones lose all the games that are expected (KU, BU, TTx2, WVUx2, Auburn) and win 7 of the other 8. That would be 15-16. In this hypothetical, several of the losses are hard-fought, just don't get over the hump, but it gives us hope. (Maybe that doesn't matter to this question.) Then crazy things happen and 4 wins in KC result in the automatic berth at 19-16!

    What's the seed? 12? A 12-5 game might be fun!

    Are you blaming Prohm for this?

    Haha, I love your optimism but the previous 2 weeks of ISu basketball had 3 of the worst losses in the history of Hilton Coliseum, so of course this week looked better. In addition, we were down to Baylor by 20 with 5 mins left in the game. It was not a close 13 point loss by any means and in that second half they destroyed us. We have 14 Big12 games left and a game vs Auburn. 9 more wins gets us to 17-14, @ 10-8 in big 12. I don't think that gets us in with the FAMU anchor around our necks. Not only that, but where do we find these 9 wins?

    @Ttech - L
    OSU - W
    @Aub - L
    Bay - L
    @ Tex - L
    @ WVU - L
    KSt - W
    @ OU - L
    Tex - W
    @ KU - L
    Ttech - L
    TCU - W
    @OSU - W
    WVU - L
    @KSt - W

    I can see us getting 6 more wins, putting us at 7-11 in Conference and 14-17 Overall. That doesn't even get us into the CIB...
