    Re: My MBB Predictions

    I don't see 22-9 getting a 5 seed. No real quality wins predicted. Schedule strength is good, but you also have to win some of those tuffies.

    As good as 22-9 sounds, I really think this team could be better than that.

    Wins over Texas and Kansas State aren't quality?

    You may have a point about the seed. I just tossed that out there.

    Agreed, but as a BCS conference school with that schedule I would see us as a 7 or 8 at worst if this played out

    I missed the Texas win...

    IF they get in with 22 wins, its as a 8,9 I think...

    I hope we can pull the upset against Texas. I'd take that as an early birthday present.

    Only 1 home loss? That would signal the official return of Hilton Magic.

    Chris, I see you have us losing to Missouri.

    Why??? Just curious, have to run, but look forward to reading it later.

    Can't win every road game. These are pretty unscientific picks guys. Realize that.

    This is what's cool about this year's team. There isn't a game on the schedule that is a sure loss. We have the talent to beat anybody on any night.

    Any predictions for you cybsball20? As one our more level-headed posters I'd be interested in your take.

    Re: My MBB Predictions

    I just did a little more research. I was wrong. That record would put the Clones as probably a 7-seed. Good call by all of you above.

    Re: My MBB Predictions

    The game by game predictions seem conservative. I fully expect us to upset more teams this year. I hope we don't just win the "ones were supposed to". I would like to see us get 2 of the 3 of Duke, ND, and Cal. Also, I think we are capable of beating Kansas 1 of the 2 times we play them. Maybe I'm drunk on Kool-Aid. We need to see upsets!

    Re: My MBB Predictions

    I concur with you for the most part. To think we're going to roll over everyone on the road is naive if anyone's paid attention to our past history in the Big XII. It's VERY easy to get picked off by lesser teams (see Mizzou/K-State/even Colorado has been a house of horrors for us).
