    Can we finish 9th?

    Baylor and Texas AM are 4-7

    ISU is 2-9.

    If somehow we beat KSU tomorrow and Baylor loses at OSU we will pull within one game of them in the standings.

    We lost 7 games to the top 5 teams in the conf.

    OU
    KU 2
    Mizzou 2
    KSU
    Texas

    It would be a huge upstart to finish winning a couple of these last games and finish out of the last 2 spots.

    KSU
    Baylor
    TT
    at Nebraska

    Chances of this happening are so slim, but at least I found something to find my interest.

    It's possible. A win tomorrow gets us going in that direction.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: Can we finish 9th?

    i think so...anywhere from 8-11 is where we will end up. Seeding wise I guess I would like 10, but 8 would be nice because we would have a little momentum going into OKC

    I'm feeling a win tomorrow. Somebody not named Brackins is going off. You heard it here first.

    Re: Can we finish 9th?

    Why would we want the 9th seed. So IF we make it past day one OU can destroy us as we would be playing them in a de facto road game.

    I don't think we should be thinking about who we may have to play in the second round of the tourny, just about winning as many games as possible down the streach. And to answer the original post 9th is possible but 10th is more likely.

    Re: Can we finish 9th?

    rather be 10th or 11th just for the chance to play nebraska and then missouri/kansas in the big 12 tournament.

    Like Tim Floyd says.......if first is available, place for first. He never did say anything about ninth.

    I'm glad to see someone still has faith. I'm gettin' tired of all these McD haters spoutin' off. We have had several exciting wins since Johnny Orr came to town. However, as you know, the key to success in college bball is guard play. While I love the effort of this team's guards, we're just not at the level of play necessary to succeed in the Big XII. With any luck, our current and future guards will develop into the likes of Tinsley, Hornacek, Horton, Blalock, Holloway, etc. Keep the faith fellow fanatics!

    Re: Can we finish 9th?

    answer is, yes we can finish 9th. Is it going to happen? .... I think there's a better chance for the women to make the Nat Championship Game...

    This has got to be the most depressing thread yet.

    He coached in the Big 8, so talking about 9th would have sounded a little crazy
