    Re: Monday Musings: 10-10 Edition

    Good write up, I cannot wait for basketball season. I'll take the prediction of 8th in the Big 12, especially if other teams think we are that bad.

    Re: Monday Musings: 10-10 Edition

    Agreed on the big 12 being wide open.

    Ive been studying the rosters and last years stats. A few teams who may be better than people think: OSU, aTm, Mizzou (even with the Bowers injury), KSU.

    A couple teams that may be worse than people expect: Texas & Kansas.

    I do think Oklahoma and Texas Tech will be terrible. While they both have big name coaches, there isnt a player on either team that stands out to me. Everything else is up for grabs.

    It's a fascinating league this year. I think that Texas is really going to struggle.

    Agree on OSU and aTm. Not so much on Mizzou. They have a ton of talent, but I don't have much faith in Haith at all. Who knows though.

    Wide freaking open.

    Yes, Haith is a huge question mark... In multiple ways. However, we talk about how deep our stable of guards might be, but Missouri is one better with Denmon, Dixon, Pressey, Pressey and English is crazy deep. I think it will give a few teams a headache. They are thin up front, especially with Bowers out.

    Texas has a talented frosh class, but outside of J'Covan Brown, not much experience.

    Kansas still has a talented lineup, but I don't see the depth they've had in years before. They also don't have much bulk. Tharpe and McLemore are talented frosh, but both are lightweights. Can be dealt with offensively if they can hit open shots, but defense can be a different story if a team wants to be physical.

    OSU returns Williams, Olukemi, and Paige, and adds Jurick (top JUCO center), Guerrero, and Nash who I assume will all play a lot. Nash is as dynamic of a wing player as it gets - a one-n-done type guy. I think a lot of people are sleeping on them.

    aTm is as talented, deep, and experienced roater as you will find.

    KSU doesnt "wow" you, but they return Magruder, Samuels, and Spradling. Overall, they are a big team. Interesing in those aspects.
