    Does anyone else find it poetic...

    That the 'forgotten 5' of the conference expansion talks are now the 5 locks for the NCAA tournament and that if Texas loses in the B12 tourney first round to us will likely be the only 5 teams from the conference to make the dance.

    Call me bitter, but there is something about that that makes me feel good. Even though Mizzou turned out to be not so forgotten, and a traitorous, callous, heartless piece of ****.


    "Blamo"! The new CF approved swear word.

    It's cool, because the "northern" schools really do care about hoops more, thus...we deserve to have more success in Basketball. And since Baylor is a little guy...it's cool for them too.

    I'm glad to see ISU, KU, and KSU all locking it down. Probably the three best basketball fanbases in the league right now. I wouldn't mind seeing OK State get back to being a passionate basketball fan base with a reasonably successful program. GIA used to be rocking every night. I know the Thunder and a couple down years have hurt them, but its good for the Big 12 when they are solid.

    Baylor fans don't deserve success in anything (although their football support is a little bit better). If you're bringing 4,000 people to a Top 10 basketball team, you don't deserve it.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Baylor and every other team doesn't deserve to have good basketball, their fan following sucks.

    Exactly, basketball does almost nothing for driving conference realignment.

    Not true. OU was already gone but the Pac 12 wouldn't take them at the doorstep. Since the Pac 12 didn't expand there is still a Big 12.

    The best part is that Iowa State has the opportunity to finish Texas off. An opportunity to send them to the NIT so they can do the walk of shame in a 2nd class Tournament that nobody cares about. Oh yeah... Time for Royce and the boys to finish the Horns off.

    ...and then Mizzou. If the seedings hold up, KU would send them packing, which would be fitting in a way. (The networks will be praying for this)

    But I want nothing more than Royce and Co. to send Mizzou home without even sniffing the tourney final.

    I agree. I would love for the Clones to send Mizzou packing in what would end up being their final Big XII game ever.
