for my ESPN bracket, I picked ISU to go to the elite 8 beating both OSU and NM (take that Alford). But will lose to KSU.
Just like Obama. both Louisville and Ind in the finals. Went with the BiG school of course. Had Mich beating Ind first though.
ISU was tough team for me to predict. They're a team where if they're on their game they can beat anyone in their region. That said, they can also flop (see Texas Tech game) and lose badly if they're shots aren't falling.
ISU isn't tough enough on defense for me to justify them taking out OSU. Especially because ISU relies heavily on the outside shot and OSU is so good at defense.

ESPN analysts have had Iowa State and Minnesota making the Elite 8 from some of their discussions. If both teams are playing well, they could make it.
Big if but agreed.
I think there are a lot of teams in that category this year where they could lose in the first round, or they could just as easily make it to the elite eight or further.
Oklahoma State is one of them IMO.
You're joking right?
Must feel dirty, or more like paranoia, after taking a Bong Hit like that.
Confusion is paralyzing.

I see you have ISU going to the 8, also. Did you not want to admit that as an Iowa mod? Were you afraid a bunch of people would quit the board?
I almost had Ill beating Miami and Marquette as well. Not impressed with those Ms school and Ill is so hot and cold. And back and forth bet Kansas and Mich.
I think ISU has enough mobile bigs to contain Thomas.
Speaking of bong, are you smoking something Sky? Who's paranoid?
I honestly lose track sometimes of where I pick teams. In my other bracket I have them losing to OSU. And no, I'm not ashamed to admit I have them going deep as most non biased fans would say they could be a sleeper.
Edit: I'll add that my 247 bracket was my upsets bracket where I just went ham with upsets.

I'm confused, the vast majority of college basketball followers give Iowa State a decent shot at making a run. It's not an outrageous pick to make by any means.
