    Wow. Great analysis by ESPN. Looks suspiciously like the conference standings....

    You mean to tell me you don't buy the "we are third so we are third" analysis?

    Re: ESPN Big XII Power Poll

    In all fairness, after a full double round-robin conference season, shouldn't the conference standings look like the power standings. Everyone has had a chance to play home and home with each other.

    Pierre Jackson had 35 points at Iowa State Wednesday.
    A victory over Iowa State in Thursday’s semifinals would certainly enhance their résumé.

    Not really. "Power" Rankings are based on "what have you done for me lately" rather than encompassing the entire body of work thus far.

    In a what have you done for me lately, how would you change it then?

    Instead of just criticizing their rankings tell me how you would view it differently.

    I might actually move Tech above OU. I think Tech is actually playing better right now.

    Are we talking hypotheticals here? I ask because I haven't criticized their rankings.

    I have to admit, I didn't notice it should have said quarterfinals.

    Here's the only part of it that matters:

    "A victory over Iowa State ... would certainly enhance their résumé."

    When is the last time we saw that in context of Big 12 tournament?
