    ISU Still #2 in ESPN Big 12 Power Rankings

    Good to see them have so much faith in us, but I still believe that teams 2-6 still have a lot to work out. I really see the Big 12 in tiers this year:

    Tier 1
    Kansas

    Tier 2
    Kansas State
    ISU
    Oklahoma
    Baylor
    Oklahoma State

    Tier 3 (the all defense - zero offense tier)
    West Virginia
    Texas

    Tier 4
    TCU
    Texas Tech

    TCU may be tier 5.

    Their writeup was brutal.

    My guess is that only 4 of the 5 tier two teams make the tournament come year-end. I just hope that we aren't the one left out.

    There may be some truth to this beings how they lost by 9 to Texas Tech in their own building. That is pretty bad.

    I think OU gets left out. They are somewhat of a fraud.

    They did beat Rice though by two points, so at least they can take solice in the fact that they aren't the worst team in Texas right?

    And Trent Johnson probably outcoached Scott Drew, so he's got that going for him.

    Baylor will be in a Tier of their own somewhere in the middle labeled with "The Scott Drew Factor"

    I still don't know what to believe yet on them personally, but you may want to keep that on the down-low. CW is a pretty big Lon Kruger fan and might beat the crap out of you for that statement.

    I did label tier 3 as the all defense - zero offense tier. If I were to make a separate tier for Baylor, maybe I should call it the all talent - zero coaching tier??

    I think it will be one of the Oklahoma schools.

    I think both Kansas schools, Baylor, us, and an OK school will get in from the Big 12

    We will know a lot more about OU after Saturday. If they can win in Manhattan, they're the real deal.
