    How many tourney bids for the Big 12?

    Barring the 8-game miracle winning streak, ISU's NCAA tournament chances are out. (as for NIT — nice if it happens, but I'll wait until it's close to happening before I worry about it).

    Let's put Iowa State aside for a moment. This looked like a solid 6-bid league in preseason, maybe even as recently as a few weeks ago. I admit I haven't checked recent RPI/SOS/Big Win/Bad Loss and such lately, but I took a quick glance at remaining Big 12 schedules — unless a few teams truly separate themselves, this is a 5-max league.

    Locks: KU, Texas (1-2, order may change)
    Probably in: Missouri, A&M.

    CU, Baylor, KSU and Nebraska still have a shot. Each seem to be in the 7-9/6-10 range.

    As for Tech & OU — also in the 6-10 area, which is about four wins below minimum bubble talk for both, barring well-placed upsets.

    Parity is interesting, but could drag down the conference this year as far as tournament possibilities.

    Your assessments?

    KSU will make it in if they go 8-8 in the Big 12 due to their stong RPI and SOS.

    I say 6 or 7 I think KU,UT,A&M,Mizzou and Kstate are locks. Plus 1 or 2 more out Baylor, CU and Nebby.

    All we need is a four-game winning streak in KC.

    Unlikely?? YES!! But we don't need the 8-gamer the OP is suggesting.

    How is a 3-5 team a lock?
