    Big XII North Title - What needs to happen

    1st - we must win out.

    Kansas State must lose to Mizzou & Nebraska.

    Nebraska has to lose to 2 of these 3 games: Oklahoma, Kansas, and Colorado.


    If this happens, there will be a 3 way tie for 1st @ 4-4, and I believe we would win the tiebreaker.


    I know there's a lot that needs to happen, each individual thing on that list seems possible...it's just that all those things have to happen.

    ISU needed a lot of crazy things to happen in 2004 and they all happened. We had the North served to us on a silver platter and we threw it in the dumpster that season.

    I wouldn't be surprised if we lose out. I just can't see us beating anyone after today..

    The OP simply described a possibility. It's an extremely optimistic and maybe downright ridiculous possibly, but a possibility none the less. You knew what the thread was about when you read the title then clicked on it, right???

    "Quit reading these threads" if they're so upsetting to you.

    Re: Big XII North Title - What needs to happen

    I'm working it out right now. The only possible scenario I've found is that Nebraska loses versus OU tonight, and MUST beat Kansas State and Colorado. If ISU wins out, KSU loses their next two, Nebraska loses tonight and wins those two games, the three of us are tied for the North.

    Following these procedures...

    Tiebreaker Procedures - Big 12 Conference - Official Athletic Site

    The tie would not be resolved until step 3 of part B where:

    "The records of the three teams will be compared against the next highest placed teams in their division in order of finish (4, 5 and 6)"

    If this were to happen, Missouri would HAVE to beat Kansas. If Kansas wins against Missouri, KSU wins the north, having been the only team to be Kansas.


    Go Sssssssssyclones!

    Re: Big XII North Title - What needs to happen

    Another scenario in that final week... should Nebraska beat Oklahoma, they'd have to beat Kansas State, lose their other two games including Colorado, and Kansas would have to beat Missouri.

    Re: Big XII North Title - What needs to happen

    I feel bad for the people who have wasted their time trying to figure out what would have to happen... although I appreciate knowing what we'll have to do.
