That is like the safest bet you can make. Just say they won't even win in the 1st round!

You knew this was going to be about Iowa State before even opening the thread.

I have to go with Wichita State... even though they are going to be almost too hyped as a cinderella pick, I think. That team is really talented though.

Wichita State is playing as good as anyone in the country right now. Calling them a Cinderella might not do them justice, they are playing some very good basketball right now.

You guys fequent the Dance Card site? Interesting look at who will get in. They get something like 96% of all at large bids each year.

True but most of the country will see them as Cinderalla imo when they take the tourney by storm. I'd rather KU not play them in the tourney.

That's a good team... I believe they spent some time ranked in the top 10 this year didn't they?

Teams that take a lot of 3s have a chance to get hot and beat superior teams in the tournament because of it. So yeah, Iowa State fits the mould of those previous teams. It doesn't mean they'll get hot, though. In fact, chances are they won't.

Wichita State is no Cinderella in my mind. They're very good and I expect them to do well.

I think Mizzou has a decent shot at going on a dream ride to the second round.

Or just play defense. That's the amazing thing about Butler's run. Those were absolutely not two of Butler's best offensive teams over the last decade. In fact they weren't that good offensively really... they just played great, great defense.

I'm not predicting a Cinderella, but don't sleep on the MWC teams making it this year. All 3 teams have Sweet 16 potential and I wouldn't be surprised if one got to the elite eight.

WSU really shouldnt be considered a Cinderella team, they will prolly be a 4 or 5 seed. I considered a Cinderella a double digit non bcs team.
