    As much as I hate Kansas...

    how cool would it be to see Kansas vs Texas in the championship game?

    It would really give the Big XII props and maybe help the conference as a whole, in recruiting.

    I am still ticked that A&M didn't close the deal on UCLA. We had a legit shot at 3 final four teams.

    The Big XII needs a championship. It hasn't had one yet.

    A Kansas vs Texas championship would be great for the Big 12 and my bracket

    Kind of like Kansas vs. Oklahoma in 1988?

    It's been done before....

    Re: As much as I hate Kansas...

    It' interesting to see the disparity that exists in the Big 12. We have 2 teams in the in the Elite 8 yet OSU goes to Southern Illinois in the NIT and get's beat...

    It's great for the league to have two in their now and only has to help the entire league out.

    I'm pulling for Texas... KU's won it enough time and I think Barnes is less arrogant than Self.

    I watch 20-year old reruns.

    Maybe Danny Manning could suit up.

    Except that these Jayhawks aren't outmanned like that team was. Where's Scooter Barry when you need him?

    Pretty sure there is disparity in every conference in the country.

    The NIT is just about ready for their dream matchup of Florida and Ohio State, aren't they?

    If they win, do the Gators get their locker room back?

    Well, Kansas had to bulldoze thru a 16, an 8, a 12, and now a 10 to get to the Final Four. Now, Davidson could very easily beat them tonight, but Kansas hasn't really been challenged yet.

    Getting two in the championship game seems to be the only way the Big12 is going to win. I don't like how UNC is playing right now. Its way overdue for this to happen. 1988 is the last time we have won it so that means the Big12 has never won it. Don't like KU, but I am pulling for them. Then Texas since they are in the south. My next choice would be Davidson.

    Seems like several teams haven't been challenged in this year's tournament. I keep watching, waiting for the close games. I keep ending up here, or reading another book instead.

    The last team Kansas wants to see in the finals is Texas I believe!

    Re: As much as I hate Kansas...

    KU looks like they are toying with teams at times. They have so many shoters and experence. Heck the first 2 off the bench would start at most other schools.

    As far as the Big 12 goes I think there is a bigger gap from spot 2 to 3 than from spots 3 to 12. Its Taxas and Kansas and everyone else. That is why I hope McD can get it turned soon moving up doesnt look as bad now as it has in the past. It will take some breaks and things to fall right but Texas and KU need company at the top. There have been teams that tried but have not been able to stay on top but those 2.

    Re: As much as I hate Kansas...

    i really hate kansas, probably due to my cousins who lived in kansas for 11 years, and now they moved to des moines, they always are talking smack and talkin bad about isu, and saying how amazing ku is but i want ku to lose in the championship game, so it hurts, but could u imagine, if isu ever made it to a national championship game and lost to a buzzer beating 3 like the one western kentucky beat drake with, i think i would never watch sports again if that happened to iowa state
