    Texas A&M Game

    Do we finally get a little revenge for last years Big XII tournament on Wednesday?

    Re: Texas A&M Game

    The problem is with A&M is we have not matched up well with them recently (type of player/style of play).

    They are on a roll this year, and us coming off of last night it should be a good game.

    Need to play solid out of the gate. A&M is a bit like Baylor. Athletically we will be challenged, but we can win if we play the way they are capable.

    Re: Texas A&M Game

    I think we have a legit shot at A&M, especially at home. Two years ago, we upset A&M twice; and I think we have a better team now then we did then, of course, so do they.

    We still have a shot at the Big12 crown, but someone is going to need to upset Oklahoma, a couple of times, which isn't inconceivable. I looked it up once and I don't think there has been a team since 2000 that has won the big12 with less than 2 losses.

    It's going to be a tough road for us with A&M, @OKLA, TEX, and @TTU. Everything else we can almost just pencil in as wins, because they should be.

    A&M- legit shot at a win
    @ COL- WIN
    @OKLA- hope for an upset
    TEX- we can beat, hopefully no OKLA hangover
    NEB- WIN
    @KU- WIN
    COL- WIN
    @TTU- we always struggle @TTU, but we will be favored
    @MU- WIN
    KU- WIN

    Even if we do drop a few the next two weeks, it should be able to finish on at least a 6 game win streak.

    I was looking at our schedule, and was having similar thoughts. Though I can't help but feel that there might be an upset somewhere along the way. I would never count on a @CU game for either MBB or WBB.

    However, most of all, I would like our guard offense and post offense to both play well on the same night.

    Re: Texas A&M Game

    We definitely have a favorable schedule to finish. It all starts by beating A&M!

    that would be nice, although it does have to be a pain for opposing coaches to decide which of those to prepare for.
