    Revised Big 12 preview

    Sorry if it's been posted.

    A primer for the Big 12 season -- college basketball - ESPN

    "Revised predictions
    1. Kansas: Never sell Bill Self short.
    2. Baylor: Perry Jones III needs to be more assertive.
    3. Missouri: No post depth? No problem for the Tigers.
    4. Kansas State: This may be Frank Martin's finest coaching job yet.
    5. Texas: Freshmen are getting more and more comfortable on the court.
    6. Oklahoma: Lon Kruger inherited a better team than most people think.
    7. Iowa State: The Cyclones are the "Jekyll and Hyde" team of the Big 12.
    8. Texas A&M: Off-court distractions have taken a toll on the Aggies.
    9. Oklahoma State: It can't get any worse. Can it?
    10. Texas Tech: The improving Red Raiders are hardly a lock for the cellar."

    Biggest disappointments: Iowa State is talented, but the Cyclones have yet to put everything together. There's no way Fred Hoiberg's squad should lose to Drake and Northern Iowa and only beat Mississippi Valley State by two points (even with a sick Royce White). Michigan State transfer Chris Allen is shooting just 35 percent from 3-point range.

    Chris Allen has been extremely disappointing IMO. I feel like the lackluster effort starts with him. He just looks like he could really give a **** less about what's going on in the game

    He does kind of exemplify the whole disinterest tone the team takes on. Not the direction a senior leader should take a team.

    Jekyll and Hyde is a good description for this team.


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

    Pretty realistic analysis.

    Re: Revised Big 12 preview

    The fact ISU was listed 7th at this point means either that there's enough reason to think this could come together as the season continues, or an indictment of how down the Big 12 is this season.

    One prediction I have: OU will finish 3rd or 4th. Kruger is that type of coach. He isn't fantastic (his first seasons at other programs have rarely been impressive, and he doesn't usually win conference titles I think two ties for first at Florida and Illinois) but his teams also don't languish near the cellar.

    I would be shocked if Baylor won the regular season title. But you never know who thought BU would produce a Heisman Trophy QB?

    Basketball is a game of streaks. We just have to get hot for a string of a few games. Winning cures everything.

    9. Oklahoma State: It can't get any worse. Can it?
    Well. The answer is yes it can.

    OSU just lost J.P. Olukemi to a season ending injury and Markel Brown to a 'who knows when he'll be back' injury.

    There are 7 available scholarship players, one of which has seen 6 minutes of playing time.

    Oh 2003-2004 season I miss you very much.
