    Is TT a must win game?

    Likely our easiest remaining game.

    Win, and we start having serious momentum. Lose, and making a bowl is in serious jeopardy.

    Every game is a must win game in the big 12, getting to 6 wins is tough.

    No.

    The way the Big 12 is stacked up this year, everyone but KU is legit. There are no games that are "must win" type games in an individual capacity at this point in time.

    Re: Is TT a must win game?

    Must win for what?
    National Championship? Yes.
    Conference Championship? Yes.
    Bowl Game? Not necessarily.
    I'd like to keep the N.C. option open for a while, so I guess it is a must win.

    Re: Is TT a must win game?

    "Must-wins" IMO are the games they need to win to meet my expectations for the season. This is by no means a must-win for me.

    Everyone being legit does not equate to all games being of equal odds. Not winning one of your better opportunities (home game plus against a team not in the top-15) is likely to be lethal when facing such a stacked schedule.

    Re: Is TT a must win game?

    I really dislike this "Is XXX a must-win?" mentality.

    Well, yeah, I guess. To go undefeated.

    It's a will win.

    To get to undeafeated all games are must wins. I believed CPR when he said we will win a bigxii title. Why not just do it this year?

    Re: Is TT a must win game?

    It's a strangely framed question. The goal should be to win the game, always. Durpa durr.

    Re: Is TT a must win game?

    A home game against a mid level (at best) Big 12 team is absolutely must win. Especially with a tricky road game the following week.
