    I think it's more likely that we miss the tournament than get a 5 seed. However college ball isn't all about talent. Guys could get a long really well and have great chemistry and get us to a 5 seed. Who knows. I wouldn't be predicting it however.

    Kind of like you. Stupid post after stupid post and yet, every once in a while, you manage to exceed even your even your own level of stupidity. Unfortunately, that does happen every year in your case.

    I say 'they' but it's because I didn't go to school there (and I think using 'we' is even a little weird for anyone not actually on the team, but that's just me).

    In what world are we a 5 seed next year??? That would be amazing and would take an incredible coaching job by Prohm, not saying that cannot happen, but my goodness, that seems like a stretch.

    I hope it happens though!

    Not really, he rubbed me the wrong way the first month he took over for a couple reasons. I wont disclose those reasons publicly.

    It is pretty funny to read this thread. First I think the fans are fighting amongst each other for no real reason and then I realize I blocked that troll's comments.

    Don’t forget the fact that you’re a dishonest emo teenage girl.

    Has ISU as a 6 seed. That seems about right.

    Yet, he has Baylor as a #3 seed at 19-13 record?

    Must be their records from last year. There is no way the defending champs are going 29-3 in the ACC and getting a 4 seed.

    Yes, appears to be records from 18-19 prior to NCAA tournament (so, regular season and conference tournaments).

    Baylor is going to be a top 3 B12 squad this year.

    LOL Lunardi hasn't done much homework, he still has Iowa in the field and a 6 seed to boot.

    Was going to say the same thing. At this point I think 6 seed is extremely optimistic for us too.

    Honestly, I think if Bolton plays a 6 seed is reasonable.

    I could pencil-in anything from 7 to 10 seed right now. 6 isn't out of the question, perhaps on the optimistic fringe.

    Barttorvik has this for next year...

    upload_2019-6-27_12-4-48.png

    Granted, there are some updates to make (assuming Bolton can play and Bohannon cannot, which their model has no Bolton and JorBo playing right now), but that projection system is not being extremely kind to either squad for next year.

    For comparison, here was the same range last season...

    upload_2019-6-27_12-5-58.png

    That range has a couple of teams that managed to sneak into the tournament in that range, but that is the ragged edge-of-the-edge of the bubble down there. Thinking about a #5 or #6 for either squad is rather optimistic, or at least I would think so.
