IT'S NOT PLAGIARISM IF YOU LINK TO IT: SPECIAL SELECTION SUNDAY EDITION

Thomas J. Russo-USA TODAY Sports

You can't win the tournament if you're not in the tournament.

THE QUESTION TODAY: Where might the Hawks end up? Iowa is considered "in" per almost all bracketologists. Despite the clunker of a month the Hawks had. That's a good thing, I suppose. I mean, we haven't been here in awhile.

There's still a few games to be played today. Michigan and Michigan State will battle it out  for the Big Ten Tournament Championship. Most spots should be filled. It's all about seeding now. Where will the Hawks end up?

The Cedar Rapids Gazette's Scott Dochterman guesses in Buffalo, New York, as a #10 seed facing VCU. ESPN's Joe Lunardi has Iowa also as a #10 seed but in St. Louis to face Gonzaga. That's a short drive Hawk fans and if they both can win, the Hawks get Duke in round two. Finally, the USA Today calls Iowa one of the last five teams in the tournament and predicts an #11 seed facing UCONN in San Antonio. They have Iowa State in the same region. Let's assume that doesn't happen. We'll follow all the rumors as they emerge today. Stick around the comments and we'll talk about it.

WANT TO BUY TICKETS TO SEE THE HAWKS? Hawkeye Sports will have tickets for sale once the destination is announced today shortly after 6:00 pm (CT). You'll want to bookmark this so if Iowa does end up in St. Louis tickets will go fast.

MIKE HLAS IS RIGHT. I admit it. I'm on the #poutteam. It's hard not to be disappointed considering where we were just a few short weeks ago. Iowa's not the first team to limp into the NCAA Tournament. 2012-13 Minnesota comes to mind. Hlas lists a few others. Limping teams don't win the National Championship but Iowa's chances at that were really a long-shot to begin with. Today's supposed to be fun. We have a long time after this week to be sad.

SAD, UNLESS YOU'RE ALREADY LOOKING FORWARD TO FOOTBALL. GoHawks released this video to pump you up.

THE DETAILS TO IOWA'S OPEN PRACTICE IN WEST DES MOINES ARE FINALIZED. Iowa will practice April 12th at 1:00 PM (CT) at West Des Moines Valley's football field. The date, coincidentally, is the same as Iowa State's annual spring game in Ames. We see you trollin' Kirk Ferentz.

IOWA WILL OPEN SPRING DOWN A QUARTERBACK. So long Sokol.
