    3. OSU
    4. KU
    5. OU
    6. UT
    7. KSU
    8/9/10. TT, WVU, TCU (in no particular order)

    OSU
    KU

    ISU/Baylor/OU
    UT
    WVU/KSU
    TT

    TCU


    That middle group will be a battle, and not much will separate #3 from #8, maybe even #9.

    ISU/OSU

    Everybody else

    ISU is at the top of the conference. Saying KU is above us is laughable. They've lost 3 times already. They can be good, but they're struggling. We, however, are not.

    I was just coming in to say this. Not sure how you can justify KU above ISU right now.

    Yeah, they have looked good against good teams (and poor against poor teams). Had they won against MSU, I think 6 Big 12 teams would be, at this moment, in the tournament.

    KSU is starting to come around and can knock off anyone imo. WVU has played tough against some good competition and Eron Harris is on fire. We better take care of business at home, as getting even 3 road wins will be tough.

    Re: Rank the BIG 12

    Power Rankings:
    1.) Oklahoma State
    2.) Baylor
    3.) Iowa State
    4.) Kansas
    5.) Oklahoma
    6.) Texas
    7.) Kansas State
    8.) West Virginia
    9.) Texas Tech
    10.) Texas Christian

    There isn't much separating 1-4 and 5-7.

    10. Texas Tech
    9. TCU
    8. West Virginia
    7. Kansas State
    6. Texas
    5. Oklahoma
    4. Baylor
    3. Iowa State
    2. Kansas
    1. Oklahoma State

    1-4 are all Top 16 teams. Quite frankly any one of those teams is capable of winning the conference or playing in the Final Four.

    +1. Exactly as I have it, though OU and UT are interchangeable as are TT and TCU

    Strength of schedule is the phrase I think you're looking for. KU's schuedule has been significantly more difficult than other members of the Big 12.

    Never put Baylor ahead of us. They haven't got better then a split with us in the history of the world.
