Never figured CyTwins for such a fair weather fan before. But I guess ISU fans are no different than any other fan base. Much easier to support a winner that is for sure.
You would think that, but look at Carver and Hilton attendance this year.

I just linked the NCAA history of pigs. Most find that NCAA is THE AUTHORITY ON but without a shadow of a doubt @HawkJRP will dismiss it as it “doesn’t fit his narrative.”
I am not sure how this is up for debate.

In 2011, the NCAA tournament expanded again, to 68 teams, with 31 automatic qualifiers, and 37 at-large bids, and the First Four was created to cull the teams to 64 for the first round.

Last I knew, if you get a bid to the tournament, you are in the tournament. Spin away though.

See there is no such thing as a zero round in all of sport. Why so triggered? You team tried very hard that season. So close to being in the tournament. Just like last season you almost made the Sweet 16. Triggering events like this are clearly pretty traumatic for you. Please view the above to help you.

Here ya go, the round of 64 games were called the second round in the 2014 NCAA Tournament:
