    Mr. Optimistic

    Does everyone realize that if we pull off a huge upset against Mizzou & take care of business against Baylor we could be tied for 2nd in the Big 12!?!!!?!?!

    Can't imagine Mizzou losing to Tech. I hope we can end up third.

    Re: Mr. Optimistic

    i may be wrong but i think MU would hold the tiebreaker for 2nd over us since they beat baylor twice and we will only have beaten baylor potentially once.....both of us have a split with KU but i think the tiebreaker goes down to the record against the 3rd place team and so on

    Yea but we would still be tied for 2nd even if Missouri beats Tech and we win out. We would just be playing as a 3 seed in the Big 12 tournament.

    Mizzou would have 6 losses, and we would have 5

    Well to be fair, that would be pretty impossible for Mizzou to lose to Tech.

    To be fair the OP was putting out an optimistic best case scenario. People don't have to come in and rain on his parade just because it might not be realistic.

    If Texas Tech had a perfect game and Missouri was reeling after losing 3 straight, they could have a chance to beat them.

    The OP didn't say anything about Tech beating Mizzou so no one is really raining on his parade. All he said that has to happen is us winning out and we are tied for 2nd. I think most people would agree that this is very possible.

    Agreed. And even if Tech doesn't win, it would be incredibly impressive to finish the season tied for 2nd. And I would consider it tied for second, even though we would be the 3 seed. If we tied for 1st but didn't win the tiebreaker, wouldn't we still be celebrating a big 12 regular season championship?

    That is how it appears in the Big 12 record book so absolutely!

    Yes. I couple of KUs 8 straight Big 12 championships were ties with other teams IIRC. Everyone outside of KU still counts those as Big 12 championships.
