    Big 12 Power Rankings

    Iowa State at number 4.

    Conference Power Rankings: Big 12 - Men's College Basketball Nation Blog - ESPN

    Pretty fair assessment before conference play.

    F that. We beat KU twice and we will be in a pretty spot for 1st. Time for the blue bird to fall from the top once and for all. This 8 years in a row thing is bull **** and needs to stop. CYCLONE POWER!

    The way we've played so far, I'd be surprised if we could beat the Blue Demons of DePaul, much less the Blue Birds of KU.

    They'll be #1 until proven otherwise. It hurts me to say that.

    I always enjoy the people melting down because we didn't beat a top 10 team on the road.

    Why's that? Have we lost to a bad team yet this year?

    No, not necessarily. But we have played badly. That's his point

    Still wouldn't make sense to be surprised we would beat DePaul. We haven't played great so far, but this team has not even come close to embarrassing themselves yet this season.

    Hey it wasn't easy finding a team with "Blue" in their mascot.

    My point is this team cannot play defense. You've got to be able to lock a team down for a possession or two at the end of the game to get Ws in this league. I think we're going to see some heartbreaking losses this year. I'm hopeful we can put it together like last year and make a good run through the conference, but that hope comes from the knowledge that CFH is our coach-- it certainly doesn't come from watching other team's PGs dribble unmolested through the paint for layups.
