    A crack at Big 12 final standings and tournament seeding

    Here is my attempt at predicting the rest of the Big 12 games and seeding for the Big 12 tournament. This is assuming KU beats Texas tonight which it looks like that will easily happen. Here are the standings I predict.

    1) Kansas 16-2
    2) Oklahoma 12-6 Wins tiebreaker over ISU and OU due to record between OU&ISU
    3) ISU 12-6 Wins tiebreaker over Texas due to record between OU&UT
    4) Texas 12-6
    5) K-State 11-7
    6) WVU 8-10
    7) Baylor 7-11 Wins tiebreaker over OSU due to head to head vs OSU
    8) OSU 7-11
    9) Tech 5-13
    10) TCU 0-18

    To explain why the win over Tech is what gave us the edge over OU. We split our series with OU and tied our record with each team going from top to bottom until Tech where we swept them and OU split. (wow, I know!)

    In this scenario the Big 12 tournament bracket is as followed

    1) KU vs winner of 8) OSU / 9) Tech

    4) Texas vs 5) K-State


    2) Oklahoma vs winner of 7) Baylor / 10) TCU

    3) Iowa State vs 6) West Virginia

    I just did this for fun so don't rag on me if you don't agree! Hope you all enjoy! Go Cyclones!

    Re: A crack at Big 12 final standings and tournament seeding

    Actually I think it would be 2. ISU 3. OU and 4. Texas in that case. In three way ties it first goes to records against each other. Since that would make Texas 0-2 against OU, that drops them to 4th. Then ISU wins the tie breaker over OU because of their record against Tech.

    Nevermind, it would be 2. OU 3. ISU and 4. Texas due to OU going 2-0 against Texas.

    Hmm.. you may be right! Here is the tiebreaker procedure if you want to check it out. Phillips 66 Big 12 Championship Seeding and Tiebreaker Procedures - Big 12 Conference - Official Athletic Site Let's figure this out! I did my picks based on who SHOULD win and gave the benefit of the doubt to the teams that would hurt ISU's seeding yet ISU still fares pretty well.

    Edit: here's how it reads for ties between more than 2 teams.

    1. Results of collective head-to-head competition during the regular season among the tied teams (mini round-robin).


    So yes you are right. It would be OU, ISU, then UT. I'll get that updated!

    Also switch Baylor and OSU in the standings. Baylor wins the head-to-head against them.

    Can't imagine OSU V KU in the first round game. Somebody could have made huge money putting that out there as a bet.

    I don't think anybody who was sane would have but there is an excellent chance of that happening. With how close OSU played KU in Lawrence, I wouldn't be surprised to see OSU make it a game.

    If we just split the two road games, we are pretty much guaranteed at least the 3 seed.

    3-1 will be very tough, even these home games are close to toss-ups.

    Until someone not named Kansas beats us at home, I'm not expecting a home loss.

    Looks like we need to win the next four.

    It would not shock me if we lost one at home. Ok St and WVU can really match-up with us. 11-7 looks likely, and I could see it coming from picking up a surprise road win.
