    Re: Which Big 12 School will last the longest in the NCAA Tournament?

    I'd like to say Oklahoma, but they have been in a downward spiral since Griffin's concussion. KU has a recent history of doing well, as well as choking. A&M has a less than favorable seed. Texas has been bipolar this season. Oklahoma State also has a less than favorable seed. I'm going to go with Missouri because of athleticism and the ability of each guy they put on the floor to score.

    Missouri! Their fast "wear you out" style will be tough on teams to keep up.

    Hate to say it, too. Their style is difficult to prepare for on short notice.

    Re: Which Big 12 School will last the longest in the NCAA Tournament?

    I'll say Texas because I can see OU losing to either Clemson or Michigan because of the way those 2 play. I think A&M,Okie St. and Kansas may all go down in the opening round. Missouri would get Marquette or Utah St. both teams very experienced I don't see them getting rattled by the press. I think Texas gets by Minny because of the experience, Duke is either hot or not from 3 and really don't have an inside game so I think texas matches up well with them and gets to the sweet 16

    I'm going with Oklahoma. I have them losing to North Carolina in the elite 8, I have Mizzou losing to Memphis in the Sweet 16 and I have Kansas losing to West Virginia in the second round.

    I had to go back and look, because I thought I had Memphis going to the final four. I actually have Kansas going the deepest, to the elite 8 where they lose to Louisville. Missouri loses in the sweet 16 to Memphis.

    I also have Oklahoma losing to Syracuse in the sweet 16 and A&M losing to Connecticut in the second round.

    I think Memphis is too tough and too talented even with a weaker schedule. In many of Mizzou's biggest games, they've had to come back from huge deficits and they might not be able to if they get down to Memphis.

    Missouri and Oklahoma are both exiting in the elite 8, but KU is going to the final four where the lose to eventual runner up UCONN. Carolina wins the final over UCONN 74-68. Oh and my suprise Final Four team is 6 seed UCLA coming out of the East. Probably completely wrong, but hey thats what makes it fun.

    I really like Missouri. They have talent, athleticism, and are well coached. They are also difficult to prepare for on short notice.

    Also, I usually have the most fun partying at the Big12s with Mizzou and Okie State fans.

    Wow, we're far off from each other. I have UCLA losing first round as I think they're weak. I also have Pitt winning it over Uconn. UNC will have injury issues. KU will not be able to do anything once Collins and Aldrich get shut down.

    Aldrich isn't going to win them tournament games. Collins will. If a team can shut down Collins, KU is very vulnerable.
