    Big 12 Standings Outlook

    Baylor over Texas tonight solidified a lot of things. Looks like it will shape up like this as far as tournament seedings go, barring any major upsets.

    1. KU
    2. Mizz
    3. Baylor
    4. ISU
    5. KSU
    6. Texas

    Re: Big 12 Standings Outlook

    We've pretty much locked up 4th place. Assuming we beat Tech on Wednesday, we'll most likely be 3 games up on both Texas and KSU. So, we would have to lose the rest the our games and they'd both have to win out for them to tie us.

    Yeah, need to beat K State and Baylor to tie for 3rd.

    Otherwise going to be 4th place by ourselves assuming we beat TT. Which is not bad, especially if we beat Baylor, we would be a lock then.

    Wouldn't a loss at Mizzourah, win in Manhattan, and a win over Baylor at home get us third? That's not too big of a stretch. But, if KU finishes 1st, I'd rather be fourth than third. Mizzourah is the type of team that'll give us fits.

    I wouldn't mind finishing 4th...we'll have a little tougher game against Kansas St. but I want to avoid Mizzou...they are a bad matchup for us.

    Also, if we win in Manhattan that could put Texas ahead for the fifth spot.

    This seems to be the consensus so I'm not calling you out, but I didn't see anything in our game against them that led me to believe we can't play with them about as well as we could with Kansas or Baylor. I would say Missouri is the most solid team of the three, but don't see them as being a much worse match-up for us. I have to think both our rebounding and defense are much better than they were at the beginning of the conference season and it wouldn't have taken much more of either in that game to have beaten them.

    Seems like Baylor played ISU a lot tougher than Mizzou...

    Re: Big 12 Standings Outlook

    I will say that Missouri shot the 3 worse than they typically do in the game against us. Maybe its just that I'd like two more shots against them, because they are the team I'd most like to beat this year.

    Doubt it. If KSU loses to Mizzou this week and then to us, that'll give them 9 league losses and their other two games are against A&M and Okla State, which both should be wins. Texas already has 8 losses, and after their next two against TTU and OU (which should be wins), they travel to Kansas, which is nearly an assured loss with perhaps the Big 12 title on the line for the Jayhawks. So, with both teams in this scenario being 9-9, KSU gets the seeding edge due to their win over Mizzou earlier in the year.

    Re: Big 12 Standings Outlook

    Some of you people have given up on the clones winning on the road. Not me, we can win the rest of our games, or at least give us a chance to, IF we come to play. We have a great opportunity to snag the 3 seed if we want it bad enough. I'm not giving up just yet.

    Re: Big 12 Standings Outlook

    It does look like 3rd could happen, but a stretch since Baylor gets OU and TT next. If we get 1 of the 2 @ KSU or @ Mizzou, then our game with Baylor is the battle for 3rd. If we lose both on the road, we still own 4th, and that's not bad.


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