    Hey CW, I've heard you say a couple of times that the Big 12 sucks this year. By every account I've seen it is number 3 behind the Big East and the Big 10. That's number 3 out of 33 conferences! Here's a good link:
    Rating the conferences: From 1 to 32 - College Basketball Nation Blog - ESPN

    I'm guessing you are talking the conference down based on the number of teams that look like they could go deep in the NCAA, and I agree that it appears worse than usual with only Kansas and Texas looking very solid. But I still say that the conference from top to bottom is stronger than you give them credit for.

    Other than that I enjoyed your podcast.

    It is just down compared to what I thought it would be. Kansas and Texas have exceeded expectations. After that, there's Kansas State (major disappointment), Texas A&M (about what we thought), Missouri (about what we thought), Colorado (disappointment), Texas Tech (what we thought), Iowa State (what we though), Oklahoma (below average), Nebraska (better but still below average), Baylor (below what I expected) and Oklahoma State (about what I expected).

    The league just isn't what I thought it would be. "Sucks" might be too strong of a word but I haven't been blown away. Hopefully Kansas State gets hot down the stretch and can make things interesting in the Big Dance. That's probably a long shot but anything can happen.

    Thanks for your input.
