    Big 12 Standing predictions

    1) Kansas 13-3 Oral Roberts is just a wake up call
    2) Texas A&M 12-4 Great experience/great 1-2 punch
    3) Texas 10-6 Young, but Rick Barnes can recruit and coach
    4) Nebraska 9-7 Creighton win says a lot
    5) Iowa State 9-7 Common, gotta be bias here.... :)
    6) Oklahoma 9-7 Purdue loss baffles me
    7) Missouri 8-8 Cupcake non conference schedule doesn't fool me
    8) Kansas State 7-9 Might take huggy a year
    9) Texas Tech 6-10 Road stretch in non conf. could kill them
    10) Oklahoma State 6-10 I'll know more when they play Syracuse
    11) Baylor 5-11 Better, but nothing special yet
    12) Colorado 2-14 Ouch for this team


    Here is what I think......I'm sure it will be way off, but fun to think about. This is based on whats happened already!

    Re: Big 12 Standing predictions

    I agree with most of your picks...except Nebraska. No way they finish 4th in the conference. I would probably swap OU with them in the 4 spot. Yes they lost a couple close games, but they will play strong in the conference as usual.

    Re: Big 12 Standing predictions

    that is a pretty good possibility....i just had to make one pick that most people wouldn't and i liked how they beat creighton......i like OU cuz they beat norfolk state by 63 and we barely beat them by 8

    Re: Big 12 Standing predictions

    I'd move Tech up. That road stretch will only HELP them once they enter conference play.

    Move Nebraska down to the middle. Move up K-State, OSU and OU. Tech always finishes in the middle also. I have know idea though. Talk to me after 10 games are played.

    Re: Big 12 Standing predictions

    Really though, it IS a tough year to predict what's going to happen in the conference. A lot of teams in there with a complete facelift this year.

    i disagree with the OSU prediction strongly. Okla State is a very, very good team with good inside and good outside game. They'll be #2 or #3 by the end of the season, and might very well challenge for the title.

    And i'd predict that Mario Boggan is on the first team all Big 12 team at year's end.

    Re: Big 12 Standing predictions

    very true, i wanted to do it early in case i am right about something, people can't come at me and say i made them late......i love predictions though, i wish more websites did more thorough ones.

    You could be right, I just figured I'll know more when they play Syracuse

    Re: Big 12 Standing predictions

    Not sure how they will exactly seed but I separated them into 4 tiers:

    Top
    KU---I concede the game @ The Phog but maybe we can give 'em a game @ Hilton
    A&M---Should have 2nd place in the bag. KU's only competition for the title.

    Mid-Top
    Texas---Will improve more than any team as the season goes on, including us.
    Okla St---Likely to make NCAA

    Middle
    K-St---NCAA is a coin toss. Guaranteed NIT
    Tech---Jarrious Jackson is unstoppable. Likely NIT but NCAA is possible
    Oklahoma---NIT bound
    ISU---5-8 wins in conference depending on development. NIT would be reasonable goal
    Baylor---Need to show me something
    Nebraska---Creighton win was nice
    Mizzou---Good start but weak competition so far

    Bottom
    CU---My most confident pick. Which 1-3 Big XII teams will they embarrass at home this year? (Crossing fingers)
