    Thank you Horns!

    Never, ever thought I would hear myself say that, but their win over OU, obviously, was huge for us. It all started when M'Baye (or whatever) signaled the upside down Horn (which I think is awesome!) and triggered the D-bags to win in OT. Will be a hell of a game Sat as both of us will be playing for tourney bid

    Top 5 Big 12 teams will get in. Hope we just stay in the top 5.

    Why is it huge for us? We already beat OU by 20 we want them to win and make that win look even more impressive...

    We will probably have 21 wins if we finish in the top 5.

    - It put OU back in a tie with ISU for 4th place in the league. If ISU wins Saturday they will be up one game on OU with the head to head tie breaker. This is important since after Saturday OU has WVU at home and at TCU. They probably won't lose again. ISU has OSU at home and at WVU. ISU could easily drop one of those so a buffer is helpful.

    - Each UT win continues to make ISU's loss to Tejas less of a bad loss. Even with a loss to UT, OU's RPI is so obscene that it is still a very good win.

    How is Texas's win over OU huge for "us"? ISU's RPI is in the 50's right now, and Id rather have OU's RPI higher then lower when ISU plays them.

    True, but our standing in the Big 12 is irrelevant. I wanted the teams we play the rest of the way to win as many games as possible. I want to get to the NCAA tournament and don't care how.

    Yes, i hate this thinking that there are a set # of tickets for the big 12. Doesnt work that way. We want strengtha and a clear cut dilineation between the tourney teams and non teams in conference. We need ou in the rpi 25. They are dancing regardless, i wanted their only loss to be to us.

    As either the 4 or 5 seed in the conference tourney, we should be on the same side of the bracket with KU (assuming they get the 1 seed).

    This really doesn't make any sense. Those teams will win at the expense of teams we have already played twice so it will simply make those games just worth more or less in our SOS and RPI. The RPI is not figured on a snapshot of the teams as they were when we played them, it takes into account the entire body of work of the teams we have played, including the results of games they play subsequent to our matchup.

    At this point you are right. It just doesn't really matter. We know we have to win 2 more games agaisnt anybody.

    Re: Thank you Horns!

    What if we win zero more games? Do we still have an outside chance?

    And it wouldn't hurt if our non-con opponents won some games to bring our RPI up a few spots.
