Dumb wake up there BOY! ISU is #34 in the BPI and currently 3rd in the big 12. When they beat Texas Tech this week the worse they can finsih is 10-8 they will be 10-5 in conf. after tech game They are in with a chance to play for a better seed the rest of the way. No 10-8 big 12 team can be left out of the tourney this year with the sec,pac 12 and acc not having as many teams as usual in tourney.
How is ISU not in the tourney at 10-8 in the #2 conf in the country?
Because as much as they'd like you to believe that BBall does it the right way, with a tournament, in the end, TV sets is what matters. If ISU Beats Tech and gets left out of this tournament, but a rash of Big 10 mid packers get in, I won't watch one game of this tournament. IF we beat TEch on Wednesday, I don't see how we could even still be considered a bubble team with what esle is out there. In the end though, a couple extra Big 10 teams means a lot more TV than Iowa State.
I do honestly believe though that in the end, this is sportswriters tossing crap out there so people tune into their blogs.
