By my quick count....

Mark Few has played in 14 NCAA tournaments. (15 after this season's concludes)

Mark Few is 15-14 lifetime in the NCAA Tourney.

Average seed awarded is approximately 7.

He has beaten a higher seeded team 5 times.

He has lost to a higher seeded team 5 times.


I think we've been treated pretty fairly over the years by the committee.

We are the Dallas Cowboys of the NCAA. "America's team" that no one really likes except for a small sect of rabid fans, and roughly a .500 record over the last 15 years....

I am a Cowboys fan, but this is absolutely ridiculous. We win 80% of our games, the Cowboys don't.

Ugh what a horrible analogy that may happen to be true but please don't remind me. :boxing:

Huh? The Cowboys have exactly one post-season victory in the last 17 years. Pretty weak analogy IMO.

Few is also 12-3 in first round games - with many of those years being a sub 6 seed.

Of those 3 losses, the only first round loss to a BCS school was Indiana.

We have fed on mid-level BCS schools b/c I think most of them were trending down at the time (St. John's and WVU for example). I think a lot of that goes out the door this time b/c this team has a definite contributing cause to its 7 game losing streak - 4 were without Smart, and they started winning coming back. Their last three losses, including one to Kansas in the Big 12 championship were in OT. They also have a lottery pick. I don't this team (OSU) is a mid-level BCS school that is trending down.

I realize we were the defending champs of the Big 12 this year but I don't think this OSU team fits the mold.

Thank God Digger picked them for the championship game or we'd have no chance.

Critics usually pick against us (in last several years) and are usually right. Hopefully we can prove them wrong this year

I realize what he means. He isnt talking about regular season but march madness. We havent had a stirring run in years. We haven't upset the big dogs like past ghosts. We got our 1st number 1 seed and bounced in rd of 32. America loves us but at same time grumbles about us. We are the little engine that could, stuck around and just wins 1 and loses 1 more most part.

Thats why we beat ok st and az and we will capture the nation. Folks, by all pundits and some fans we are done come friday. Just like 99s team. So why not this team??
