If were an 8 or 9 seed well be playing in Omaha not Pittsburgh.
I saw this mentioned last night as well, however, Im pretty sure that first/second round locations are not guaranteed certain seed games. Its all regional now, and the seeds that play at a particular location are determined on Selection Sunday. I could be wrong...
Man, if we were a 6th seed in the west, that would be great imo.

If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls
IF the Cyclones would end up in an 8 vs. 9 game I want the #1 seed to be UNC. I would love to see the Clones have a chance to show Barnes (and ole' "cry me a river" Roy) the door early in the Tournament.
I would also love any potential seeding that could match ISU up against Creighton in the 1st or 2nd round. Showing McDoormat the door would be fantastic.
Added a little...
"If I've told you once, I've told you a million times - don't exaggerate!"
I would not like a matchup with Syracuse. They are athletic enough to get to shooters in that zone. I don't think we'd fare well against them. I'd much prefer to get up to at least a 7. The potential two seeds look better.
I'd also like to avoid Ohio State. Sullinger would give us issues.
