Conference Schedule Released

My very unprofessional prediction:
@OU - Loss. Playing @ Norman is always tough.
BU - Toss-up. Last season @ Waco had a terrible first half but kept with it for the rest of the game. If only we had those first eight minutes back we might have pulled it off.
@KU - Win. I just don't like the Jayhawks. And if it's a loss here, then we'll pound them later in the season.
Ta&m - Win. There's no Danielle Adams or Sydney Colson, who are all stars as rookies in the WNBA. That was pretty much their team. Home court helps as well.
@Texas - Loss. Always a thriller of a game and goes down to the last minute.
TTU - Win.
@KSU - Loss. We just can't pull it together in Manhattan recently and their point guard play is ridiculous with Brittany Chambers.
@Ta&m - Loss. Payback for what we did earlier.
@OSU - Win. They don't really have an identity post-Andrea Riley
Texas - Win. Another nail biter.
@Mizzou - Win. We just can't take this game for granted like we did last year.
@TTU - Win.
KU - Win. We'll either win by 7 or win by 23 depending on the game @KU (see above).
OU - Win. Danielle Robinson is in the WNBA so their extremely fast play will be slowed down slightly, allowing us to get set up better.
Mizzou - Win.
@OSU - Win.
KSU - Win. We're good against them on our turf.
@Baylor - Loss. Their seniors, plus again the Britney and Oddysey combo.
Conference = I have 12 wins in an 18-game schedule, but I'd take anything from 10 and up. We have to figure out who we are in the non-conference (which will end sooner this year due to scheduling 2 more conf games) and now it's the 2nd year w/o Aus and 1 w/o Bolte. The freshman will have to step up in roles just like the class of 09 (Prins/Z/Jess/Pop) has.

Didn't we beat them there last year? Still can't believe we let Chambers get away.
