    DO NOT let your wife tell you to grow it back. Nothing is better than a shaved head.

    I won't lie...I could get used to this. Although yesterday when it rained on my head, that was an experience of cold that I have never felt before...

    I'm pretty sure this is a stupid question but...

    Why aren't our men the #4 seed in the tournament? After OU's loss to TCU we've got identical conference records but our overall record is slightly better, right?

    I believe for the Conference Tourney, they only look at conference record. So, if there is a tie like there is with us and OU, it goes to tie breaks. In this case, it has to do with who else you have beaten and OU has some sort of an advantage. Maybe a KU victory?

    Here's a post from another thread that explains the seeding in the conference tournament.

    I believe it is record against the 9th place team - we split, they swept Texas Tech. Personally I think the "record against" tie breaker should start at the top until it gets to the tied teams and then it should switch to the bottom and work back up. Doesn't seem right that because they lost to the last place team they get seeded above us. Of course in this case it really doesn't matter.

    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.

    Whatever, we would have a much easier path to the title game with the 4 seed.

    The only difference in a 4 or 5 seed at this point is that it will look worse for KU when they get beat by the 5 seed, instead of the 4 seed.
