    Texass the most critical game of the year. Hope Fred has 'em ready. Horns down baby

    This is the most likely game to swing the RPI anywhere. There should be no way on God's green earth that we should lose to TT or TCU at home, and the rest are opportunities to improve the rpi or bump the rpi up a notch. Losses in any of the others shouldn't damage RPI too much. Even a road loss to WV shouldn't damage the RPI too much.

    IMO if the clones win this one and the two gimme's they SHOULD be in the dance. Go 1-4 in the "bump games" and they are a lock.

    Hoping for much more, but we need this one.

    Re: Texass the most critical game of the year. Hope Fred has 'em ready. Horns down

    I don't think this is "must win" yet. If we lose and win out, it wouldn't make a lick of difference. It is HIGHLY important to win as it is one of the most winable road games we have left but it isn't win-or-go-home.

    Also, I wouldn't feel very comfortable having only won @Texas, TCU and Tech to finish out the year (especially if we lose in the first round). I think that is enough to get bubble-busted. 4 more to sit pretty, anymore just helps seed.


    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.

    I agree it is a must-win game. We're getting down there in terms of remaining games. You never know when we throw up 40 minutes of bricks so we need to take what we can get.

    At the very least I see Texas still beating Tech and TCU on the road and one of OU, ISU and BU at home.

    Re: Texass the most critical game of the year. Hope Fred has 'em ready. Horns down

    I wouldn't call this a "must" win, since we could win out after losing this one and be fine, but we really can't afford to lose these few winnable ones either. For example, if we lose tonight, then IMO we have to win some other game that we aren't expected to in order to make up for it, and that's tough to do.

    It will come down to Rebounds both Offensively and Defensively!
