    Big 12 North

    By no means am I saying this is going to happen but it is interesting to think that if Mizzou goes down tonight, ISU will be one game back in the North and will essentially control their own destiny. Thought I would mention this considering we are all drinking a little extra Kool-Aid today

    That K-State loss ruined any chance we had to win the North but with a win next week we'll have 3 conference wins already. Nothing to sneeze at.

    I don't see us beating both Nebraska and Missouri, but after today I suppose it could happen.

    Baylor needs to beat KSU but it looks like that will happen.

    I agree, but it is refreshing to think that we still control our own destiny....How awesome would it be for Iowa State to play in the last ever Big 12 Championship????....Once again I am a realist and realize this is not the probability but rather the best case scenario, but damn it feels good to be a Cyclone

    Would be great to have happen, but not sure I want to see OU again this year.

    I'm not ready to put chickens before they hatch, but it's a Kool-Aid day so I'll have some.

    Yes, North title is still a possibility, but it will require winning out and also some help. KSU needs to lose 2 more games because of the head-to-head trailing Baylor right now, so if anyone wants to keep title hopes alive, pull for Baylor. K-State could pick up a third L vs. either OSU or Mizzou.

    Speaking of Missouri also needs at least one other loss if ISU were to win out. So, root for OU.

    I'll wait until after the Nebraska game to have serious division-title hopes, and maybe we'll still have a mathematical shot at that point.

    I want to be bowl eligible first and once that happens, if we still have a mathematical chance of winning the North, I will start thinking about it.

    not really, to win the North we needed to beat the contenders (NU and MU).
    beating KU and the buffs is also a necessity. If we split MU and NU and beat
    KSt the odds are we would of lost out to the team that beat us. So if OU wins
    tonight we'll be one of a handful of teams that control their own destiny.
    A long shot but still...
    This is all mute until after we play Nebraska.

    False. We need KSU to lose 1 more also, even if we win out.

    KSU has OSU, Texas, and Missouri in the next 3 weeks. Not hard to envision them losing 2 or even all 3 of those.
