If you want an honest answer, it is less than one percent.

They need to go 12-6 in conference, yet they are projected to go 6-12.

Blame one, not you people. Nitewing created this
created what, the positive about Iowa going to the NCAAT?

as for predictions. people have been wrong with their predictions the last 4 years, or ever since Gatens graduated
12-13 season 9th or worse, ended up 6th alone and reached the NIT Championship with a starting lineup of 1 JR, 1 SO and 3 FR.
13-14 10th or worse ended up 9-9 6th 1st NCAA loss
14-15 leading scorer, 1st team All BT and 2nd round NBA Draft pick Marble graduated, 9th or worse. ended up 12-6 T-3rd
15-16 with 4 seniors 7th at best and 9th or worse ended 12-6 T-3rd
16-17 started the season with 1 SR and 4 FR starters 10th or worse, ended up 10-8 T-5th.
17-18 10th or worse AGAIN.
Fran and his teams have been making these people look like total MORONS and they will do so again.

Because Im bored.

With the powerhouse resume of 8-6 with 1-6 against the RPI top 150 with an overall SOS of 179 and with the lone top 100 win coming against paper tiger Southern Utah at home I give Iowa a.....drumroll..... 3% chance to win the Big Ten Tourney and only 3% rather than 1% because the Big Ten does not have any team that is heads and shoulders above everyone else so the bracket can potentially "open up" for the Hawkeyes.

Gotta be some type of record. It’s tough to get one NCAAT win much less two in five years.
since the last time won back to back 1st round games came in the 1995-96 and 1996-97 seasons and the last time Iowa had back to back 3rd place finishes was in 1986-87 and 1987-88 seasons. SA and Lick dug a very big hole that Fran has had to dig Iowa out of.

Shouldn’t take 7+ years.
didn't realize that Iowa was at the top of the list for top recruits were knocking down the door to play.
lick won 15 BT Games in 3 years, also Fran did not run players off to make room for better players, or is that called creaning?

Going on a limb here but I’d give it a 99.9% chance either Purdue or MSU wins it.
