    Ranking the best conference games played to the worst so far this season

    I would assume most people would agree that the best games have been wins and the worst have been losses.

    I would assume most everyone would say the very worse game of the year would have been the WV game. But maybe the KU loss in Ames may be close.

    So here are my picks:

    Ranking the best conference games of the year starting with the game 'you could watch over and over again on your DVR' to the conference win that was 'a win is a win' game:

    TX - great overall team performance, the Big 3 all got 20+ pts each, needed a win to get our swag back
    Baylor - was top 10 team at the time, by the second half, Baylor basically gave up
    Okie State - 3OT classic, first win in Stillwater on Eddie Sutton Night, BTW looked like he had one foot in the grave and looked terrible
    TCU game in Ames - Known simply as 'The Ejim Game,' no one else showed up
    Tech in Lubbock - got that game back from last year, first win of the year, first road win
    KSU - they were ranked at the time, did not see this game, maybe it was better?
    OU game in Ames - could never really pull away from OU, kept it close, I am sure some Sooner scored a career high in that game
    Tech game in Ames - If it were not for 'Did Niang Dunk?' that game might have been a 3 pt win, again some Tech payer had a career high, but Hannah Dusty did not play a factor and got his hair cut

    Now the 'best' loss to the 'I never want to see that game again' loss

    OU game in Norman - got the game either tied or within 1 at the end of the game, but then gave up 5 plus points to allow OU to pull away
    KU game in Lawrence - made a great run at them at one part of the first half when we were making 3's....allowed them to pull away early in the second half, and made a mini-run again, but too much to ask for being in the Phog
    TX game in Austin - A lot of turnovers by ISU, last of a tough game stretch, never got into it
    KU game in Ames - Scoreboard only a 7 pt loss, but never felt we were in the game, felt like a 20 point loss, KU could do anything offensively they wanted to, only KU turnovers kept us in the game
    WV - gave up 100 points to a conf. opponent, that should never happen, total brain fart game


    This is the second time I have posted this. The first time, I got kicked off and was not signed in. It is now 4:30AM on game day, and I cannot sleep. Needed something to kill time.

    At KU was one of our best performance and easily our best performance in a loss this year.

    Iowa State played better in Lawrence than we have even in some of our home wins, such as our recent one against Tech.

    The Okie State win is the highlight of the year for me not just because it was by far our most dramatic win but also because it broke that hideous 18-game losing streak in Stillwater. Just think. We had beaten Kansas three times at the Phog since our last road win against the Cowboys.
