    MBB Big 12 Title Hunt

    I may be on the Kool Aid a little hard from this weekend. But I think we have about a 1/3 shot at the Big 12 title right now.

    I think Mizzou is probably who I'd pick right now to wrap it up, which pains me to say because i don't want them winning on the way out the door. They have a the top of the conference games at home on their remaining slate. Gotta hope Texas takes them on the road.

    Next I think is Baylor who is pretty dead even with us in the hunt. The result is going to come down to our head to head with Baylor results. If we split I think we'll finish higher in conference because I think they drop to Mizzou and someone they shouldn't because it's Baylor and that's what Baylor MBB does.

    Kansas will absolutely drop 2 more games. @Baylor & @Mizzou. Then I think probably split @KSU & vs Mizzou. They are not the Kansas that everyone always gives Kansas credit for. We should have 2 Ws over them now. I really want to pick them up in the Big 12 tourny because they are the top tier team I don't fear playing.

    As for ISU. I don't think anyone on this board will argue that when our team is on they can beat anyone in the nation. Left on the schedule I only have 1 game left that I will be surprised that we win, @Mizz. The @Baylor game i want to count on a typical Baylor midseason implosion. Next toughest game is the season closer against Baylor in Hilton. If we're in the Big 12 hunt you can bet your *** Hilton will make the KU game this weekend look like a church service. If we don't waste this win and drop KSU coming off the big win then we are in solid position.

    We finish above KU, Baylor implodes, and Mizzou and us are the final dogs in the fight. If our guys continue to improve as they have and remain focused and don't let the big wins like KU affect their prep we'll be looking at a potential glass bowl to add to the collection come season end.

    Big 12 Tourney:

    Another 1/3 shot, IMO. If the season ended today we'd play KSU then Kansas for the right to play the championship game. Gotta like our chances there. Then it's one game away from opportunity 2 at the trophy for the season. I don't see that route to the title as daunting.


    It's awesome to be looking at standings at this point in the season and once again thinking we have a fighters chance. What do you guys think? Should I set down the Cardinal and Gold goggles?

    Win against KSU, OU, and OSU and I'll take a drink. That's a tall task though.

    KU is more likely that Baylor. BU wil beat themselves in close games.

    Re: MBB Big 12 Title Hunt

    We've definitely got a shot (being 2 games out of first doesn't hurt at all), but I think our odds of winning the conference are much better next year as opposed to this year.

    It will be bad for the B12 if Kansas wins for - what the 8th consecutive conference title.

    On a supposedly 'down' year, with something like 8-scholarship players, they win the conference, then probably get a VCU, or UNI type early exit from the Dance.

    If the Big 12 wants to be an elite basketball conf, we need better rotation from the conference championship and a Final 4 participant at least every other year.

    I do agree that KU will likely lose a couple more, but not enough for us to catch them.

    Any time ISU plays at Stillwater it isn't good. We just don't play well down there.

    I don't think Mizzou will win the conference. I think Kansas will take it this year with Baylor second. Mizzou is too thin and that will show in the second half of the big 12

    Re: MBB Big 12 Title Hunt

    I think anything more than 4 losses and you're out of the picture completely. I don't see KU losing more than 2-3 more. Mizzou probably only loses 1-2 more also.

    I don't see any way that we only lose 1 or less from here on out. We certainly control our own destiny to finish in the top 4 in the league and that's enough for me.

    When you consider that we can finish in the top half and go dancing in year 2, you have to be pretty pleased, especially considering how bad the last 6 years of ISU basketball have been.
