    Re: How many B12 wins do we get?

    Is it possible that maybe there isn't as much talent as everyone thought there was at the beginning of the season? Hope not

    Big 12 coaches picked ISU to finish 8th.

    OU and TT were picked to finish last.

    Looks like 6 wins.

    Re: How many B12 wins do we get?

    I think the Big 12 is weaker than it has been in recent years. With that said, 5 with the current level of effort. I'm hoping that Big 12 play gets them focused, but I'm just not seeing the kind of effort needed. Last years team had 1/2 the overall talent, but twice the drive.

    If this year's team had last year's drive, I would say around 13, which might be Kool-Aid induced.

    I miss the effort.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: How many B12 wins do we get?

    I say we are improved so between 5-6 would be awesome without a PG on the team.

    This team is getting great effort, just isnt that good and lost 2 PRO PGs.

    Re: How many B12 wins do we get?

    If we play like we did today, I fear that the answer is zero. If you strung me up by the balls right now and asked for an honest prediction I would say two wins. I really hope that I'm wrong. Last season they were so close so many times. I don't know if this team has the heart to pull out a lot of close ones. Nonetheless, GO CYCLONES!

    Re: How many B12 wins do we get?

    Too early to tell if they will suck. They have a great coach and plenty of talent. Now if they can acquire some HEART and DRIVE. I wouldn't put anything past them.

    Re: How many B12 wins do we get?

    8

    And I dislike watching this team as much as anyone, but they will get 8. If they get hot from outside they have the potential to shoot themselves to a win against anyone, anywhere. The depth and strength of the team will come into play in the Big 12. Also, the Big 12 doesn't have any world beaters this year, just a handful of very solid teams. Having said that, there is guaranteed to be at least a couple gigantic pile of **** games.


    When all is said and done, more is said than done

    Re: How many B12 wins do we get?

    Has no one been watching the rest of the Big12? We're not alone in being lackluster in the non-conference. Outside of Mizzourah, Baylor, and Kansas, I haven't seen a lot of good teams. I am still hoping that leads to wins and a little confidence.

    Re: How many B12 wins do we get?

    6-10 wins

    Big 12 is pretty dreadful outside of 2-4 teams. I'm banking on us staying healthy and continuing to improve. But even worst case scenario I have a tough time believing we would win less than 6. That would truly be dreadful and McDermottish.

    Re: How many B12 wins do we get?

    Sometimes people get too caught up in individual games. I wonder how much different these predictions would be had we beaten MVSU by 30. I also wonder how much these would change should we beat Texas on Wednesday.

    I expect a really, really close game Wednesday. Don't take too much out of today's game.
