    Adios Iowa!...No way in hell do they make the NCAA tournament!

    Losing to Northwestern basically seals the deal on this underachieving garbage team...20 - 12 overall record and 9 - 10 in the Big Ten and losers of 6 out of 7!...Bye Bye Hawkeyes!.......Say hello to the NIT!......Amirite?...Discuss!...

    I'm from Iowa, and I love watchin these fuks lose. I don't care who it is, if you finish the season 1-6, there's no way you should get in.

    Iowa's RPI is 45...

    They have 5 Top-50 wins.

    They are an absolute fuking stone lock to make the tournament.

    So did Villanova.

    It happens in conference tournaments.

    It will happen tomorrow.

    But Iowa is in.

    Sorry Wilfred...but they don't impress me...what's funny is now they have the same exact record as Minny who is considered a bubble team...Lunardi has the gophers as one of the first four out...I'm not sayin...I'm just sayin...

    but Iowa is reeling, Villanova is not...Upsets do happen, but the Hawkeyes have lost 6 out of 7....Like I said, if Minny is on the bubble, why not the Hawkeyes?

    5-9 against top 50 RPI teams (2-8 against top 40), that's hardly impressive. If the committee looks at their nonconf SOS and how they finished, they're fukked.

    Not saying they are good but they are absolutely in. They may end up in the play in games in Dayton now though.

    Minnesota actually has a better resume than Iowa.

    I have no f'ing idea why Lunardi says Iowa is a lock but Minnesota is on the bubble (and currently OUT) at the moment.

    Makes no f'ing sense. Minnesota has the same amount of B1G wins and a higher RPI and SOS.

    Couldn't agree more. I've been questioning that all week. Doesn't make any sense. Minny should definitely be in if Iowa is a lock.

    I still don't understand why they are lock city.

    Their record is padded with rpi +150 teams.

    And like someone mentioned earlier they are 5-9 vs the top 50, 12-11 if you factor in 51-150.

    If anything they have played their way back onto the bubble.

    It is their BPI that is impressive. All loses except one (loss at Michigan State) have been by less than 7 points. They did enough earlier in the season, regardless of the way they are playing now.

    Is BPI one of those ESPN created stats like QBR? Does the committee look at that?

    Doesn't matter. BPI = factors in the way you win and lose and margin of victory = eye test. NCCA tournament committee definitely uses the eye test. Iowa's only bad lose, other than in the B1G tournament, is a loss at home to Illinois. That is it. Can't say the same about Minnesota.

    I hear ya, would keep them out myself and you never know, it may happen. The committee does things differently than all the projections out there and there will be surprises.

    if you keep iowa out you basically say that only the last 2 weeks of the season matters, might as well just start playing march 1st then
