    A projected #1 seed's best player had the best game of his career and they still couldn't beat us. I think we're going to have a fun rest of the year

    Re: Iowa MBB now a projected #1 seed

    It's pretty hard to pick the #1 teams this year. Nobody is standing out.

    Iowa has a good team this year and, the way the Big 10 has been performing, they don't have a ton of opposition outside of Maryland.

    Plus, it would be fun to possibly watch them be the first #1 seed to lose in the first round. They still have Woodbury after all.

    I don't think their body of work is still as good as KU's at this point considering they played Wichita State, Michigan, and Michigan State without their best players.

    I wouldn't mind watching them lose in the round of 32.

    Re: Iowa MBB now a projected #1 seed

    Kansas has a road loss to the team Bill Self has struggled the most to beat, and suddenly Iowa, who lost to Augustana, jumps them?

    Re: Iowa MBB now a projected #1 seed

    Historically, what's the RPI rank of the worst loss a #1 seed has ever had? What is Augie's RPI?

    This might be the year a 1 seed finally goes down to a 16. The strength of the one seed teams is going to be lower than usual this year.

    Iowa is good. But I don't even see them being a #3 seed or better when it's all said and done.

    If this happened, I would probably never again return to this website.

    Let's put it this way, people. I would MUCH RATHER lose a scrimmage to Augustana than lose a real game to UNI this year. They are probably worse than Augustana anyways.

    If multiple bannings haven't kept you away I doubt a first round exit would

    Who knows? As has been said, there are no really dominant teams, so we'll see how it all shakes out.

    Didn't we beat the team that lost to Augustana and you lost to the team that got beat by UNI?
