    Re: Still going to Tourney

    If we win the next two at home, we're in the driver's seat to the touney. Counting TT and TCU as wins (small risk at home) that puts us at 8-4 with still two road games against WVU and Texas. We finish 6th in the Big 12 we play Texas or WVU on a neutral court in the tourney, a game where I like our chances.

    If we lose our next two, it may go empty though. Along with about 85% of others on this message board.

    THIS! Some people saying we need to go 12-6 in conference and win 2 games in the tournament are just out of their minds. Some people here clearly don't get it.

    We had 6 top-100 RPI wins last year. Six. Kansas, Baylor, Kansas State (twice), Texas, and Lehigh. We had two sub-100 RPI losses: Oklahoma State, and Drake.

    And we ended up being in EASILY, even without a win in the Big 12 tournament. We were a freaking 8-seed, not an "on-the-fringe" 12 seed. An 8 seed, locked up, in the tournament for sure, with no sweat whatsoever on selection sunday.

    This year? We currently have 2 top-100 wins. Even if we only go 10-8 in conference, we'll likely pick up wins over OU, Baylor, Oklahoma State, and perhaps Kansas. Again, we will be at 6 top 100 wins. And perhaps our resume will not be as great as last year's, but quite frankly, it doesn't need to be. We had, as it turned out, a LOT of room for error last year.

    We're fine. ESPECIALLY if we pick up our next 2 at home.

    I don't get it. This Oklahoma State game was clearly an opportunity, nothing more nothing less. Yet it never fails that if we lose in heartbreak form people all of a sudden act like it was a must-win. It wasn't. Never was.

    I wish more people on here would think like this....well because it's the truth. I don't want to settle for 10 conference wins, but it'd probably get us in to the dance.

To me, you can't ask for much more then to be in it that last minute of the game and have a chance to get the win in a place like that, we will get a couple of those before the season is out. I understand what your saying the turnovers are def frustrating but it certainly could have been worse, thank god page is on the bench now for one.if we played tonight like we did last Wednesday....that would have been a 30 point game...MINIMUM!!!
    I was expecting them to lose tonight, and they did, and that doesn't change my perception that at this point they probably aren't a tourney team.

    I don't understand why that's such a controversial position?

    Do you expect them to lose Saturday? If so/if not, thats where the controversy comes in

    Need some input here, what's the lowest seed you think we'd realistically have a shot at?
