    Upcoming K-State Game Now Pivotal

    I think the biggest game left on our schedule is now @ K-state. Sure Mizzou and Baylor are big games but we will not be favored in either. If we don't win at K-State, we could be looking at going into the B12 tourney on a 3 game slide, losing 4 out of our last 6. If this happens, I think our bubble may get popped. We do not want to be on the last four in/first four out list.

    We won't be favored against KSU either. But we should have a better than 50% chance of picking up a win against either KSU or Baylor.

    Re: Upcoming K-State Game Now Pivotal

    I've said all along we need 11 conference wins. I don't think 10 will do it even if we are 4th in the league unless we win at least 1 in the tournament and possibly 2.

    I know...people will disagree. That's fine.

    What this guy said. We probably won't be favored against either, but we have a good shot at picking one of them up.

    Win 3 of our last 5 and we are a lock. A team with 21 wins overall and a 11-7 conference record in the Big 12 will not get left out.

    Agree with this, but we need to find 3 wins. That won't be easy.

    Re: Upcoming K-State Game Now Pivotal

    They're all pivotal at this point. If we lose against OU or Tech, we'll have to pull some magic out to get to the tourney, so those two are "must-wins".

    To feel good going into selection Sunday, we really need to win one between Baylor and @K-State. Given that we haven't really beaten anyone of importance away from Hilton, I don't think we get it done in Manhattan.

    I'm pretty much conceding we'll lose @ Mizzou.

    I still think Oklahoma, Texas Tech, and going with Baylor. I still think that if we only get 2 that there would still be a chance of getting in. Might need to win a conference tourney game though.

    That's easy to say, but I doubt you'd bet a lot of money on that happening. There have been plenty of fans thinking they were a lock, who were disappointed on selection Sunday over the years..

    I'm feel about 60% with this. Would like to feel a lot better than that.

    Re: Upcoming K-State Game Now Pivotal

    I think we will win out at home and pick up another quality win when we beat Baylor.

    If we're 11-7, I feel great. If we are 10-8 and win one down in KC, I feel good. If we are 10-8 and lose the first game down in KC Im very nervous.

    The beauty is that we most certainly control our own destiny.
