    who do you want to win the conference?

    assuming we don't. ALMOST assuredly baylor, kansas, or mizzou will win if we don't pull off a miracle and get a LOT of help along the way.

    which of these three do you prefer? i gotta go with baylor. i am sick of kansas and mizzou is skating off to the sec.

    Re: who do you want to win the conference?

    Has to be Baylor. KU's reign needs to end and I don't want Missouri winning anything before they pack their bags.

    Re: who do you want to win the conference?

    Baylor. When it comes to basketball I hate KU worse than I hate the Hawks in everything else.

    Missouri can go **** themselves

    Re: who do you want to win the conference?

    Its probably going to be Mizzou, but I WANT KU to win, because If Baylor is going to win it, they will probably have to beat us twice.

    Re: who do you want to win the conference?

    I want to beat Baylor twice and MO once so it is KU for the win. Simple.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    Re: who do you want to win the conference?

    No one.

    Can't be Baylor as I want us to beat them twice.

    Can't be Missouri cause they're SEC losers

    Can't be Kansas because **** Kansas

    Re: who do you want to win the conference?

    Key phrase for me in this thread is "Assuming we don't." Until it becomes mathematically impossible, I want Iowa State to win it.

    If ISU is eliminated from contention, my rooting interests will involve whatever is of biggest benefit to our tournament hopes. That effect may prove marginal, but it's still my focus. After that, I'll figure out which team to dislike most.

    I don't intend to be Sidetrack Somebody's Poll Guy, that's just the way I feel right now.

    Winning the title almost certainly requires winning out (and at minimum, sweeping Baylor and winning at Missouri). It's a steep climb that also requires a little help.

    Even so, there are realistic scenarios in which the Cyclones could still win outright (which seems better than relying on tiebreakers at this point). For anyone who thinks it's out of the question, here's one possibility:

    Bracket Generator. Press Submit

    Beggars can't be choosers. I'd even settle for losing a tiebreaker on the shared conference title and being #2 seed in KC.
