The kool-aid drinking Cyclone fan in me thinks we have a legitimate shot at making it to the Elite Eight.
The more rational side of me understands it when Gottlieb says we're bound for the NIT. We played ugly today - sloppy turnovers, clunky offense, and occasional break-downs on defense. Add to that the fact that this win and the Texas win are the only wins we have versus the RPI top 100 and both were at home. We need to win our next 4 to be taken seriously by national pundits.
That's kinda the point. We played ugly and sloppy, and beat the #5 team. We have the talent to beat anybody if we play well.
We won't make the NCAA tournament. One win doesn't justify this team. I feel like all we rely on is three's. We need to prove ourself against baylor ksu and mizzou. one win isn't proof enough. Look at Va Tech every year. We should fire our head coach.
You're probably right. I guess that we'll just have to win out, rock the conference tournament, and see what happens from there!
