    These Cowboy games are not good for my blood pressure.

    I'd be disappointed if WSU were seeded as an 8-seed in Tulsa over a No. 8 Oklahoma State given OSU beat the absolute dog out of them this season on a non-neutral court.

    I thought the same thing at first but then I realized that they won't put us in a bracket where we play KU or BU in the 2nd game. So if those two get to Tulsa, then we probably don't.

    OSU will not go to Tulsa regardless of how they end the season. AT LEAST one of KU or BU will be in Tulsa, likely both. Due to NCAA Tourney scheduling restraints, this will prevent OSU from being able to play in Tulsa.

    Ah, yeah, you're right on all that. I forgot all that junk. But still. Buffalo. Gross.

    I was thinking the exact same thing. We crushed them on their court

    Buffalo is the last place I'd want them to go to

    This is the weirdest thing. As I watch my pokes in close games, I expect us to win. Am I crazy? Is this an episode of the twilight zone?

    Its called expectations. Do all the teams in Tulsa have to be in the same Regional? I thought they could put the first two rounds where they think they will get the best crowds, they just have to have four teams from one region and four teams from another region. I'm probably wrong.

    I believe you are correct (not positive). If we are right, we could be in Tulsa if either ku or bu is there, but not if both are there.

    Just imagine if the Tulsa Regional had O-State, Kansas, and Wichita State. That could happen with the right seeding, not likely but we can dream.

    Baylor should get a black sheep seed, they will not, but they should.

    I think Palm releases his later today, but his most recent take on OSU was this:

    Oklahoma State completed the season sweep of TCU. The Cowboys only have one victory against a sure tournament team, but four against fellow fence-sitters. Their home schedule is relatively favorable, save the season-ender against Kansas. OSU isn’t far from being in a comfortable spot on Selection Sunday.

    Does Palm not consider the total beatdown of Wichita State at their place??

    Yeah, I actually think this is right. There used to be a requirement that teams from the same conference could not be able to meet until the sweet 16. However, I think they did away with it.

    Edit: okay, I found the rules here. At first read I wasn't following so I'll let someone else decipher it.

    This is true but if KU and BU are both 1 seeds and both in Tulsa then they already would have four teams from one region and four from another. Even if Baylor drops to a 2 seed I suspect it will be the same.

    At this point, Baylor & KU have all but locked up the Tulsa regional. They have played & earned their way there. Baylor isn't likely to drop below a 4 see barring a huge collapse. KU likely wins the conference again & that will guarantee them the Tulsa Regional.
