    Ok...so just looking at the schedules...

    Assumption: Kansas beats Missouri today

    We can get the #2 seed in the Big12 tourney. We would of course have to win out but possible I believe. Not sure what the tie-breaker is for conference seeding....but we'd be tied because there is no way that Missouri loses to TTech.

    I'm not sure what we should be hoping for here. If we sneak up to the #3 seed...we play Texas. Stay at the #4 it's this Kstate team. Either way we are going to have a battle. Would be huge to get the #2 seed.

    Who else wants to chug a glass of Kool-aid with me?

    Post predictions.

    I do think Kansas will win today.
    I believe that we can beat Mizzou on Wednesday.

    I'd say, "Why not? Why not us?"

    We can actually do this.

    Ok it's settled. We will do this. So assuming we lose to Kansas in the Big12 final...what tourney seed do we get?

    Lose to Mizzou, but relatively close game. Competitive.

    Beat Baylor at home, get #3 seed in Big 12 Tournament. Beat Texas in 1st round, beat Mizzou in overtime to get to championship. Lose championship to KU.

    Draw #5 seed in Kentucky's bracket. Beat Kentucky to make it to Elite 8.

    Cheers!

    Many other paths are possible, but I'd take yours in a microsecond.

    The bold is the attitude we should have.



    I like Kool-Aid. Especially cherry.

    We win out and "lose" to KU in the Big12 final, I'm calling a 3.

    We would lose the tiebreaker to Missouri cause it will be based on record vs Baylor, and Missouri swept Baylor.

    This lets you see possible outcomes.

    2 seed and no kool-aid for me. We are playing hard and winning on the road. We can do this.

    Ahh yes...forgot the quotes. But you know what I meant. I guess we'd still get the 3 seed in that scenario but I'm ok with that to not have to play Okie State again.

    This Kool-Aid tastes like there is 10x more powder in it.

    They are our nemesis team this year. I'd rather not see them again.

    If you really want to drink the kool-aid, you might as well go all out...
    KU loses out
    Mizzou loses to Tech and us
    We win out

    Three way tie at 13-5 for the Big 12 title.

    At this point, seeding has only a limited range (probably 7 to 10 - extremes being 6 to 11).

    The larger allure is, what kind of damage could this team do in the tournament?

    Matchups are going to have an effect on that. ISU can beat a lot of teams (second-weekend potential), and could do poorly vs. others (one-and-done).
