    Your picks look pretty good to me, Burnsie. I would like to pick tOSU ahead of Cornell, but I think you're right.

    1. Oklahoma
    2. Cornell
    3. Ohio St
    4. Northern Iowa
    5. Wyoming

    A little bit of a homer pick with Wyoming at #5. Oregon State has been under performing all year, hopefully they can turn things around at this tournament. Nebraska will probably be in the mix along with Virginia and Virginia Tech. Interesting that North Idaho College will be there. It's a 2 year juco, so they're all freshman and sophomores - guess they're looking for some tough competition.

    I'm surprised there's not more love for Iowa State. According to Intermat's rankings, Iowa State is ranked #7 in the nation, which is higher than Cornell, Ohio State, and Oregon State. It will be interesting to see how well they do in this tournament.

    What?!!!! I'll never read an intermat ranking ever again. That could be the worst ranking in the history of rankings.

    I thought it was high too, but maybe they know something I don't? We'll see how well Iowa State performs this weekend.
