    Three Team Race???

    I kept noticing last night during the MU/KU game (which almost looked like an NBA game with the fireworks during the intro and the streamers falling at the end of the game), and I noticed Dick and the other guy keep saying it's a three team race now for the Big XII title. This bugged me as we are only 1 game out of it as well. We still play Baylor twice and Mizzou once. KU still has to play Baylor away and KSU away, which wouldn't be a huge surprise loss since it's away for an intense rivalry game. Mizzou still has to play Baylor, @KU and KSU (who they lost to by 16 last time). I still can't believe we get no respect which is fine, which is fine because it looks like it may make our guys play harder. Our guys have come a long way and I'm proud of what they've accompished this year. Can't wait to beat Baylor that last game of the year to clinch the Big XII title, AT HILTON! (fingers crossed)

    Re: Three Team Race???

    The good thing is that I think we are still under the radar. When we go to Missouri, the crowd will only be 1/3 as loud as it was last night. When we go to Baylor, will it even be a sellout? KU, MU and Baylor are all circled on everyone else's schedule and every time they are on the road it will be a chance for the other team to make a statement. When ISU comes to your town, no one cares.

    if we get ranked (and stay ranked if we beat okie st) we will get noticed. until then we will be under the radar.

    Re: Three Team Race???

    I turned the volume off after about 5 times of hearing it. Even mentioned it a couple times on Gameday Live following game. As a fan it drives me nuts, but the lack of respect will make this team play harder. I hope the fellas can keep it going and those last two games of the year mean something.


    That rug really tied the room together, did it not dude?

    Re: Three Team Race???

    I predict that we will finish ahead of at least 1 of those teams to end the year. I'm not ready to say that it's a 4-team race for 1st, but it's for sure a 4 team race for 2nd.

    Re: Three Team Race???

    I give kudos to the producers last night when they showed the top conference records. They did include ISU. They only showed 4 teams.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Re: Three Team Race???

    I don't blame Dick or anyone else for saying it's a 3 team race right now.

    Although that's not entirely true, ISU could still make some noise, there really are 3 teams right now a big cut above the rest. ISU could eventually become part of the discussion in the next week or two, but right now there are clearly 3 top teams in the league.

    Re: Three Team Race???

    There's a break between the top 3 all tied and ISU, and a break between ISU and KSU and a break between KSU and what looks like the also-rans. That can change, obviously, but the 3 way tie makes it a good story, so they focus on that.


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.

    Re: Three Team Race???

    Any time a conference has three teams in the top 10 and no other teams ranked, they will call it a three team race. To ESPN announcers you are nothing if you are not ranked.

    Keep winning and we will get plenty of attention.

    Wait. Dickie V was doing a KU game? That's gotta be the first time that's ever happened!

    Re: Three Team Race???

    Fair to say it's a 3 team race. It's a 3 team race because there are 3 teams at the number 1 spot currently. And we're not there. Even if we win both our games this week, there is no statistical way that we can get to the top by next sunday.

    Can we win still win the regular season? Of course. But so can a bunch of other teams like Kansas State.

    Re: Three Team Race???

    Nothing to get too excited about, imo. I think they called it a 3 team race only because all three teams now fell into a 3-way tie, and still have to play each other again. That's all. It was not an in-depth analysis at that point.

    Re: Three Team Race???

    Those 3 are in the top 10 so of course they are going to get attention.
    Being that we have yet to go against Baylor who knows. They are really good -but even if we split with them and grab a couple of other wins who knows how things could end. I just like the idea that we are actually in this thing at this point of the season. So much better than the last..... half decade or so.
