    Shouldn't we be the four seed?

    Not that it matters, and maybe we are, but the Big 12 Conference site shows Oklahoma and then us. What is the tie breaker?

    We're the 4. We each split with Kansas. We beat KSU once. They got swept by KSU.

    I would say we swept KU if you're going to say we split with them.

    Re: Shouldn't we be the four seed?

    We're the 5, and those who say otherwise have no clue how this works.

    The relevant tiebreaker this year is the teams' records against individual teams starting at the top of the standings. If the teams to compare are tied, you combine the records against them together.

    So, starting at the top, KU and KSU are tied. so those games get combined. OU and ISU are both 1-3 against them, so you move to the next team.

    OU and ISU are both 1-1 against OSU.

    OU and ISU are both 2-0 against BU.

    OU and ISU are both 1-1 against UT.

    OU and ISU are both 2-0 against WVU.

    But... now we've found it. OU is 2-0 against Texas Tech, whereas ISU is 1-1.

    Due to their records against the 9th place team in the conference, Oklahoma gets the 4 seed over Iowa State. Judge that method how you will, but that's how it's done.

    If Kansas State would have won today, we would have gotten the 4 seed since they would be the outright champions and our 1-1 record against them would have trumped OU's 0-2 record. But that's not how it worked out.

    They showed it during the Baylor-Ku game and had us in 4th (could it be because we have the better overall record?)

    Re: Shouldn't we be the four seed?

    Does it really matter? The only difference between the the 4 and 5 is which color uniform we'd be wearing on Thursday.

    But we've won 17 straight in white uniforms so clearly it matters

    EDIT: Since OU beat KU which is the #1 seed they get the #4 seed.
