    I think momentum will play a big role this season. If we can get on some kind of roll early, I could see ISU as high as 5th. I think 7th to 8th would be pretty good, and might be realistic.

    Re: Predicting Big 12 finish anyone?

    I badly want the guys to find a way to finish 6/7ish this year to break the monotony of 10/11 - but I fear that's where we'll end up again.

    Big game against UT tomorrow. Longhorns are beatable. Let's set the tone for the rest of the season!

    I would just flop ISU and Neb. around and I think you have it close.


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

    Re: Predicting Big 12 finish anyone?

    Anything below 4th or at worst 5th will be a big disappointment.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    Re: Predicting Big 12 finish anyone?

    I'll say that us, Tech, Nebraska and CU will be wearing road unis on day one of the tourney, aTm, OSU, Missouri and K-State will be wearing home unis, while UT, OU, BU and KU won't play on the first day.

    Nope. After all, until 3 years ago we were regularly in the top half of the conference and playing in the NCAA tournament. Then Jamie Pollard arrived, raised prices for everything and demanded more donations, all because we were going to take the "next big step". I don't know about you, but after three years of paying and waiting, I am ready for that step.

    If we play like we were supposed to I could see us finishing anywhere from 5-7.

    That's if we play really well.

    I'd love that, but were definitely not consistent enough
