    Big 12 Schedule

    Ouch, that's a rough start with OU, Baylor, and AM 3 of first 4 games.

    murderer's row...it goes deeper than OU, Baylor and ATM. We then go to Texas and have TTech and right back at ATM again. Unless we are massively improved we literally could start the season 3-5...and that's assuming we beat KU, TTech, and OU. All three of those will be tough. OU is a tossup game as it was last year. KU is another toss up game. We lost to both on the road last year. TTech hammered us down there, but I think that was a fluke. Worst case...we start 1-7. That would just about be impossible to come back from. Best case? We nearly beat ATM at home last year. Be rattled Baylor on the road. Best case is we start out 5-2 in my humble opinion and I could even see (if the stars align) 6-1. Man...I'm all over the board here!

    Hey...we all knew this new round robin would be brutal. We either are going to be one of the best in the country or we won't. The schedule won't allow for much else. The big key will be to protect home court. Baylor would be a good place to start.

    I like that we get those tough games early. Get them out of the way and move on, either way. We get a chance to catch fire at the end of the season, too. I'm not going to prognosticate on W-L. This team will go as the guards go. Newcomers will play a big part, I think. Be positive. I'm sure these other teams are looking and saying "crap, we have to go to Ames". Our fans can carry this team a long way. I trust coach in his recruiting, and his coaching. I think the staff has learned some lessons. Could be a great year.

    Too bad the Baylor game is the Saturday before classes start. Could have been a decent-sized student turnout for that one.

    I think every team says "crap, we have to go to Ames." Rightfully so.

    The pre-conference season will tell us a great deal. We have a tough schedule and we'll see how the guard court (shooters) and the inside game are shaping up.

    Re: Big 12 Schedule

    Don't see us better than 10-8 in conference. Hope we can get lots of non-conference wins but will have some tough competition.

    Re: Big 12 Schedule

    On the bright side, because our league is the best and has the defending national champion along with probably the future national chamption (Baylor), we have tremendous opportunity to be ranked very highly and get a good seed in the NCAAs if we can pull off a few upsets. Finish with 12-15 wins in the conference and we could be ranked in the Top 10. The math works. Anything is possible.
