    Big XII Basketball without Missouri and Colorado

    I really miss playing Mizzou and Colorado in hoops. If those teams were still in the conference, the Big XII would be hands down the best conference in the nation right now. Consider that 6 - SIX! - teams would be ranked if these two were still in the conference and there would be a strong probability of 8 teams in the dance, with a possibility of even 9. That's insane.

    Rankings of those programs right now:
    6. Okie State
    9. Baylor
    13. Iowa State
    16. Kansas
    20. Colorado
    25. Mizzou
    ARV. Oklahoma, Texas and K-State

    Instead we added another Texas program that doesn't give a crap about hoops (TCU) and a good WVU program, but just doesn't feel like a good fit.

    Rant over, but does anybody else miss playing these programs too?

    TCU does not even know what a full court press looks like.

    Re: Big XII Basketball without Missouri and Colorado

    I think everyone misses those games. Playing at Colorado sucked, which probably is why they seemed to be the team with the players I hated the most. Them and Oklahoma State, along with the obvious Kansas.

    Haha. That's true, we didn't have a great record there, but from my selfish fan perspective, it was neat to visit Boulder once.

    Re: Big XII Basketball without Missouri and Colorado

    I miss the Missouri games. Those were some of my favorites. Colorado was not a school i was fond of though. Didn't care much for their teams. I do remember there being kind of a brawl or scuffle in Hilton a game against CU back in the Eustachy days. i do not recall what it was about though

    CU was always a 50 point swing. They'd win by 20 in boulder then we would crush them by 30 in Hilton. Exclude the Mcdoormat years of course.

    It involved one of the Harrison brothers and I believe Homan. That was a fun game, the crowd ate Harrison alive.

    David Harrison I believe. The Missouri games were great, esp when Orr and Stewart were coaches. Always was tough playing at CU. Glad they got rid of that crazy buffalo they had on the court years ago.

    There have been some great games in that series. And, I always somehow felt smarter when Mizzou was in our conference.

    those traitors don't deserve to play us. UNL, TAMU, Mizzou, and CU are dead to me.

    Re: Big XII Basketball without Missouri and Colorado

    Miss playing them, but we weren't the ones who left. If they want back in - fine. Until then, I don't want any of the B12 schools to play ANY of the teams that left. KU's admins said it best when they described those games as great CONFERENCE games.

    Re: Big XII Basketball without Missouri and Colorado

    TCU is better this year and will be a better program going forward. WVU had a down year last year and looks to be better. Give huggy bear some time and he'll have them at the very least in the mix of the middle of the conference if not pushing towards the top.
