    Where will the other Semi-Finalists Fanbase's allegiance lie????

    (Assuming we do not fall on our faces against Texas)

    The semi-final session will be:
    KU
    KSU or Baylor
    Mizzou
    ISU

    Let's start with KU: Will the thoughts of settling final grudge match w/ MU swing their allegiance to their side for our game or will there pure hatred of Mizzou lead them to cheer wildly for ISU? It would be interesting to hear what KU fans have to say.

    KSU/Baylor: Here's to hoping that KSU pulls out the win. KSU wins, we will definitely get their fanbase on our side. If Baylor wins, hopefully, ISU fans without tickets step up and snatch up extras from KSU. Baylor will bring a minimal crowd so they will be a non-factor and I would assum KU would snatch up any tickets available from the Baylor allotment. So if KU snatches up the extra, back to previous point.

    Other independent Fans: Screw Mizzou, they are leaving the Big 12, we are cheering like hell for ISU.

    So here's to a strong overwhelming hatred of Mizzou (and a KU fear of playing them again) and a KSU upset to get us a home atmosphere against Mizzou.

    All that being said, Mizzou still beat us on our home floor (strong guardplay/leadership can significantly reduce any home court advantage) AND we have to get there.

    Found that as a Kansas fans point of view. Sounds like they're gonna be rooting for us

    While I agree most schools will be rooting against MU, I don't know that I agree KSU will be pulling for us to beat Mizzou. They beat Mizzou in Columbia. I'd guess they'd prefer to play a team they beat vs. one that swept them. I could be wrong.

    Plus, to your point, I think that BU beating KSU works to our favor since our fans will likely be the recipients of their tickets.

    If Kansas plays K-State in the game prior to a potential ISU vs. Mizzou matchup you can count on those fans sticking around to cheer hard against Mizzou. I think for the most part KU fans have quite a bit of respect for ISU basketball and we all know they have absolutely no respect for Mizzou. It will be an extremely hostile environment towards the Tigers. I can't wait to see it.

    I would hope the remaining schools root for the schools staying in the conference.

    This. I would really like to see more than 1 game in my first time to the Big 12 as an adult that actually attends the games. I think the game vs Texas will be a dog fight with them fighting for a NCAA birth.

    lol, just what I was thinking.

    Most fans would pull for us against Mizzou but the TV people and media are already salivating over a potential KU-Mizzou rubber match. I hope we don't see some homer calls that go against us in the semis if we make it.

    In my experience, KU has far more respect for ISU than they do for MU, despite us not having been relevant for the past 10 years. I think that is because ISU has one of the best records against KU since the conference started and has much better fan support for basketball than MU does. Combine with the bad blood over MU leaving, KU will be cheering for us over MU. They would rather lose to us than MU.

    You gotta think that those snakes in Missouri fans will be rooting for Texas to beat us. You just know they don't want to play us in the following round.

    Self said on the radio either this morning or yesterday that KC is not a Mizzou town. It's more of a KU and KSU town. They hate Mizzou.

    I think we almost figured out how to play Missouri. I expect adjustments to make it an inside game for offense, to get back quicker for our guards, slow the game down, push their players around a little more if the refs let us like when K State beat them twice.

    Two separate responses from my KU friends:

    "I always root against MU....no matter what"

    "Letís go Mayor. Rock Chalk"

    Nice! I don't get people who say "let's take it one game at a time. we can't overlook (insert team)" Actually, we as fans can. The players should not. But speculating is what fans do!
