    Bad year for Big12 hoops

    KU spanks Mizzu, Tigers handle OU and then KU gets embarrassed by Tech?

    Go figure...apparently no one wants this conference. What looked like to be a sure #1 seed in OU could turn out being a 3 or even 4. I can't see the conference getting at #1 seed now.

    Bad year? We actually have three good teams at the top. I would rather have three good teams than one dominant team (Kansas).

    This year the Big 12 is way down. Even the teams at the top aren't that good. I see maybe one team getting past the first weekend.

    I bet a Big12 team wins it just to spite you.

    Re: Bad year for Big12 hoops

    I've never understood how one conference team beating another conference team proves anything about the conference's strength as a whole. The games might support the conclusion that there is a lack of any elite teams in the Big 12 this year, but that can be said about almost any conference this year. When a few upsets like this happen in the ACC, you tend to hear things from the media like, "this just proves how good the ACC is top to bottom."

    Still, the Big 12 is down this year; I don't think that's been any big secret. I still think the conference will get 3 teams to the S16; and I can only see one second-weekend team coming from the Big 10.

    And apparently they may be overrated. OU had the best non-conference season and they look very vulnerable right now.

    Re: Bad year for Big12 hoops

    OU losing at Mizzou on their senior day is not a horrible loss. I still think they are the best bet for a Big 12 team to go far in the tourney.

    KU is really good, but one would think that their turnovers will catch up to them in one of the games. Mizzou is a solid team, but their half court defense isn't that impressive. If they run into a team with really good guards, they could also be short lived.

    This could be the worst the Big 12 has been in a while but I think we rebound next year. Most of the schools have very good recruiting classes coming in and a lot of returning starters.
