    Metaphors for chances that we have in the Big 12 Mens BB tournament

    We have some pretty clever Cyclone fans here... how would you describe our chances in the Big 12 tournament?

    I think we go all the way....

    Kind of like Jeff Daniels' chances with Lauren Holly in "Dumb and Dumber".

    "You mean there's a CHANCE!?!"

    Like Rabbit's chance of winning a syrup chugging contest with those skinny little bird lips.

    Our chances of winning are just as possible as me winning the lottery.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Our chances are the same as Diante Garrett winning the Mr. Atlas competition this year.

    (Next year, maybe.)

    I fixed it for you, after the tournament, we can say, "What was all this one in a million talk?"

    The Cyclones need to make a clever montage of them training. And set it to some inspiring 80's rock like Survivor or something. Then they'd win for sure. Teen Wolf style.



    The Cyclones winning the Big 12 tournament? Yeah? And I'm a Chinese jet pilot.

    Re: Metaphors for chances that we have in the Big 12 Mens BB tournament

    Our chances @ winning the Big 12 tourney are about the same chance that a University of Iowa Athlete won't become a drug mule @ Fort Madison @ least once in his life.

    I would guess our chances of winning the Big 12 Tourny are right around the same as us making the Dance. Seriously though I think we have a better shot at seeing the Dhali Llama have a Bar Mitzvah.

    Compliance Linebacker says Tag those Texas A&M Texans.

    We Refuse to Lose till the Fat Lady Sings.

    Chances we win are like Drake winning the MVC regular and tournament in 2008!

    Come A&M, come Wildcats, come Horns, come JHawks, we want some of you.

    Big 12 pukes, better bring your game helmets, the Clones are in KCtown to rip you a new ***.

    If the staters from the rest of the teams in the conference get food poisioning and cannot play we have a chance.

    We have the same chance as Kevin Federline does at having a #1 album.
