    Big 12

    What's up with performance of the Big 12 in the tournament? I was hoping for better things. Any chance the conference was over rated.

    Lots of youth and inexperience doesn't translate well to March Madness.

    This game wouldn't have been close if KU had Embiid.

    Overrated? No. Laying a big, fat turd in the tournament? Yup.

    Uh, yeah. This is the proving ground. The rest is just talk.

    As long as the team that matters is in there, don't care.

    Re: Big 12

    I think the matchup weren't great and obviously Kansas is without their big. Baylor has talent but questionable coaching at times and OU hasn't been great all year, just good enough.

    ISU still has a good shot at the Elite Eight and Baylor has a chance with Creighton.

    At the end, I'd still rather see teams like Kansas lose even if it doesn't help the conference image. The only time I'd pull for Kansas is against Iowa.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Re: Big 12

    Baylor and ISU playing best at the end of the season and both still in. KU not the same after Embiid injury. They were just hoping to make it to the round of 16 to maybe get him back.

    OU laid an egg, KSU had a tough matchup that no one would want, OSU just didn't live up to expectations and Texas did about as expected.

    If both ISU and Baylor out today and we have nobody in the 16.... different story.

    You all are fooling yourself. This conference has been overrated. Not the best in the county.

    Re: Big 12

    You can't say the Big 10 is overrated in football because of their performance in bowl games and in the same breath say the Big 12 isn't overrated with their performance thus far in the tournament.

    Re: Big 12

    Also, the B12 teams are all very young and have gone up some senior clubs.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.
