    Next 10 games will show us who we really are.

    With our easy nonconference schedule its hard to tell where we stack up against other teams. Using Kenpom and other ratings is the only thing we have but they aren't very accurate at this point in the season. I am excited to see our next 10 games over the next month to see where we stack up.

    Where are peoples expectations for this 10 game stretch. Kenpom has us at 4-6.

    My prediction is 5-5 because I don't see us losing 5 in a row.

    I say ISU beats Neb and Colorado, even on the road. I think Baylor is a very winnable game now too.

    I say swap UVA and Neb and I would agree with that. I would say the CU game is very winnable, but historically we suck in Boulder, so that's a loss.

    Baylor is probably the most overrated team in the Big XII right now. They haven't beaten anyone so far and lost to the only two teams they played who had a pulse.

    Actually, the next 19 games will show us who we really are.

    Re: Next 10 games will show us who we really are.

    We do not know already who we are? We are a good team, other than not having a post game on offense or defense. Should hurt in the Big 12, unless we are on fire.

    Regardless, that is an awfully hard start to the Big 12. 3 out of the first 5 away, and one of the home games against KU.

    Re: Next 10 games will show us who we really are.

    How can we not know what our team is?

    Good back court play, poor front court play. We will struggle with any team that has an inside presence and is on there game.


    It is going to be a long conference play.

    I will be shocked if we do better than 4-6 through the next ten.

    Like to think 3-7 would be the worst we would see, but gonna be hard to get more than 4 of those.

    Re: Next 10 games will show us who we really are.

    I might argue we'll be able to tell quite a bit in the next five games, but I'll go with the main question.

    Here's how I see it:
    @UVa L
    NIU W
    @Nebraska W
    Kansas L
    Baylor W
    @OSU L
    @Mizzou L
    Tech W
    OU W
    @CU L

    16-7 (4-4), possibly one win too steep

    Wins also are attainable at Virginia and at Colorado, maybe a little more so than Nebraska, but I'm not counting W's in more than one of those, plus Baylor.

    This pretty much follows my preseason guess for that stretch, except for the NU game. I had the record at 13-10/3-5, so 16-7 with a .500 Big 12 record would be extremely promising.

    I was thinking the next 27 or 28, depending on if we get that first round bye in the Big 12 tourney...

    Much better chance winning in Lincoln than in Charlottesville.

    Ive said it before, I think we will beat Kansas at Hilton. I think we protect our home court.

    So who is taking the lead pipe to the Morris twins? That's the only chance we stand at competing.

    Kansas beat Cal on the road handily, and we couldn't even handle Cal at home.
