    Well, at least we get a first round win. I don't see how purdue is seeded ahead of us though.

    Duke as a 1 seed... Do a lot of people have them as a 1?

    Haha we went from on the bubble/13 seed to a 9 seed. He really does wet himself over road wins.


    Of course he has to put Purdue ahead of us. He's a huge Big 10 homer hence Northwestern getting in.

    Lol, because that is Palm's team. No way we could get seeded higher than them even if we won the Big 12 tourney.

    Not to mention he has Kansas State seeded above us still but he is a big ten shill so nothing to surprising here.

    Funny how you can go from the play-in game to not even on the bubble because of one road win against a tournament team.

    I PRAY that we get a draw like that. Out of all the 1 and 2 seeds in the tournament I think we match up best with Ohio State and Duke. Murray State as a 4? Louisville as a 5? We'd be underdogs in almost all those games but we'd have a great shot in all of them

    With that draw, a Final Four honestly isn't out of the question.

    Historically, the 9 seed actually has a slight edge in winning percentage over the 8. In this matchup, I would expect that to hold.

    I find it hilarious that he put us up against his favorite team! Why not, I guess

    He's an idiot. I have seen no one else with those 4 #1 seeds. Plus he still has K-State as a higher seed than ISU who beat them twice. Guess it takes 3 times. Moron.

    Getting past Duke as a 1 seed, steep odds historically ... still, would love to see how ISU would do.

    Win that, and it's 9 ISU vs. 3 GU in Elite 8! (Perhaps)

    Everyone has Duke as a 1 or a 2.

    19 others have the same 4 #1 seeds. (I only took into account those who updated 2/26 or 2/27 on in the Bracket Matrix).

    If we end up an 8/9 I pray that Duke is a one seed. That would be our best chance at a victory.

    Back to Purdue...put Babb on Hummel - game over.

    If Northwestern gets in, I'm going to barf all over my keyboard. I've seen them play several times. They're about equal to Okie State, and we KNOW they're not getting in.
