    Didn't see this posted. Sorry if it is a repeat. This was a big win.

    Oh, he's definitely right. And we need to show that we can win on the road as well. Our road record is terrible. Outside of the KU game, we haven't done ANYTHING on the road, and no one will count that one since we didn't actually win.

    Re: Five observations from Saturday afternoon

    I disagree with him having us on the bubble, sure it could happen, but I realistically we shouldn't finish lower than 5th in the b12. I'd bet 2nd or 3rd is more accurate and that easily gets us in, but it's still good press.

    With our road performances so far, the bubble is fair. I can see a situation where KU, KSU, OU, OSU, and BU all finish ahead of us.

    It'll take all we got to finish 2nd or 3rd IMO.

    Basically teams #2-6 in this league are all bunched up within 1 game of us, in both directions. No 2nd place finishes or tourney spots are won in January, so we have A LOT to prove at this point.

    I would put our odds of making the tourney about 40/60 right now because we haven't proven we can win outside of Hilton.

    The worst part is the bottom 3 we have not faced yet and honestly I don't know what to expect. The game one Wednesday will prove a lot IMO....
