    The play in game loss is not a troll. Why don't you just leave this conversation for the adults. This is tiring watching you do whatever you're trying to do

    Sure it is, the NCAA considers it a tourney appearance.

    Stating for years after the fact that it isnt is pathetic.

    If you want to count the play in game loss as a tourney appearance go ahead. We'll all laugh at you together

    If you want me to go, maybe I'll stick around awhile longer. You can call it whatever you want, Iowa was in the NCAA tournament that year, that is for sure. So try to say that Iowa wasn't in the NCAA trounament is a troll, you know it, I know it, everyone knows it.

    To try to claim that Iowa wasn't in the tournament is the sheer definition of a troll. Sure you can say it is certainly less than ideal being in the play in game, and I'm sure I'd make fun of ISU if they were in the play in game. Yet it is obvious those teams make the NCAA Tournament.

    Iowa State wasn't good at basketball from 2001-2010.. So yeah we didn't really care too much about those conference tournaments because there wasn't too much to be excited about. The fun thing about winning these tournaments is your team has to be good to win them. The last 6 years, we've been pretty darn good and ended up winning 4 out of the last 6 conference tournament titles. In that time we've been to two Sweet 16's as well.. Overall, Iowa State is second in the entire Big 12 in conference tournament titles and regular season titles combined. That's something to be excited about.

    The NCAA claims UCF as a co-national champion in 2017, so I wouldn't rely on them too much.

    Does Iowa have like a banner or trophy commemorating round of 32 appearances? I know ISU doesn’t, it just has one for tourney appearances and sweet 16.

    I believe they hung a banner for losing the play in game. Seriously

    Extra games. Play the 9-11 extra games then redshirt can get you an extra 40-50 assists

    You're also not required to pick the first 4 in your bracket. Usually you wait until the field of 64 is filled. I'd say it's an appearance though, even though it is different. Idk, Iowa State has never played in the first 4 before so I have no idea how I feel about it.

    Its really a dumb add on. Should have stuck with 64, I still don't call it in the field either way.

    I like it. More basketball to watch and the games have implications.
