    Re: How many Big 12 games will we win?

    In my preseason picks, I went with 3 (Nebraska, Texas Tech and Oklahoma). I would probably give them another one now based off of what I have seen thus far.

    Yeah, we're looking anywhere from 2-5... getting really lucky, 6. Big XII is a strong conference and we're lacking a lot of depth and talent.

    The home games are in bold:
    Nebraska W
    Kansas
    Baylor
    Oklahoma St W
    Missouri
    Texas Tech W
    Oklahoma W
    Colorado
    Kansas St
    Kansas
    Texas A&M
    Missouri W
    Texas
    Nebraska W
    Colorado
    W
    Kansas St

    The thing I like about this team from the two games I've seen is the backcourt play. With Garrett and Anderson in the backcourt there is a lot of experience on the floor and that is what it takes to win games. I am not saying they are the next Blalock and Stinson, but I think this is the best tandem since those two.

    The problems I see is foul trouble with the young guys when they enter the conference games and an interior defense and streaky shooting. But if they get on a roll I think they can be competitive in more than half their games.

    I like them in most of the home games and maybe pick up two road games to get to seven wins, this to me is reaching but attainable with a little luck. The main thing is to get people going to games, I was ashamed for the players at the Alabama St game to see so few fans.

    That shouldn't be a joke....expecting to fail is a poor attitude to have....to win you have to have the attitude of a winner...We should never expect less...

    5-6 sounds about right. Maybe 8 if the backcourt really, really, really, really excels.

    Whoa, two wins over mediocre competition and we're upping our b12 win totals? I could see anything from 0 to 6. No idea at this point....

    I'm not upping them. This is about what I've been thinking.
