    2000-01 Iowa State Team ='s the 2008-09 Kansas Team

    Both Regular Season Big 12 Champions

    Both teams lost to Baylor in quarterfinals in the Big 12 Tournament

    I would not be shocked to see Kansas lose in 1st round of the NCAA Tournament as well...

    Weird parallels for sure.

    Re: 2000-01 Iowa State Team ='s the 2008-09 Kansas Team

    You could see our 2000-01 team fading fast at the end of the year...they got pounded in Austin, then followed it up by two CLOSE wins in Hilton over subpar Texas Tech and Nebraska teams...Tinsley was absolutely carrying the load for the team at the end of the year, and when he struggled in the Big 12 tourney and NCAA tourney, we all saw what happened...

    That team was just physically and mentally drained at the end of the year...that being said, I think they overachieved to win the Big 12 Regular Season Title.

    Ugh...I just remember seeing Dave Bliss (Baylor coach) being interviewed after beating us and I was ready to puke! What a loser that guy turned out to be!

    They lost to Texas Tech and now Baylor....

    The major difference is that we were loaded with upperclassmen when Kansas is still a very very young team. So it might be more expected from them

    This is VERY true... The guys looked like zombies limping around campus the last few weeks of the season... They just didn't have anything left in the tank...

    I thought the issue with Tinsley was that his grandmother died late in the season. He left the team for the funeral and when he came back he never was the same player. Just emotionally he never seemed to have that same edge.

    Re: 2000-01 Iowa State Team ='s the 2008-09 Kansas Team

    That's quite a leap to use Kansas' loss today as justification to them losing again next week. I doubt that will happen.
    There are many examples of NCAA champs who failed to win the conference tournament - like Syracuse in 2003, UNC in 2005, just off the top of my head.

    They just gave our loss to Ohio State on Sportscenter.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.

    And the third seed is Minnesota.

    Apparently, the Big 12 just underwent a massive change this week

    So, what conference do we play in now? Did the MAC thing actually happen?
