    My First Big 12 MBB Power Rankings

    Feel free to let me have it with these Fanatics. They are the first of the year...nobody has played anybody...kind of a free for all.

    Enjoy. Feel free to post your own.

    Its interesting that you have Baylor ninth behind us when they have less losses and more quality wins and you can say nothing but good things about them.

    I think that Iowa State is more talented and will be go farther than the Bears. That's pretty much it.

    Re: My First Big 12 MBB Power Rankings

    Aren't rankings based on performance and not potential?

    Well, I guess that's not the case with my inaugural rankings. These aren't very scientific.

    Re: My First Big 12 MBB Power Rankings

    I have an idea...I want to see LeSchmick's rankings.

    Let's compare and debate.

    Re: My First Big 12 MBB Power Rankings

    I think we're too high at 8th right now. Probably more like 9th or 10th, just based on what we've seen so far.

    I always saw power rankings as a momentum gauge not necessarily as a prediction to the end of the season.

    It's all opinion. Nothing is wrong.

    Re: My First Big 12 MBB Power Rankings

    I won't rank them cuz I don't anything about any of them beyond what their records tell us. However, if you're going to put teams below ISU, make sure you don't include evidence to the contrary.

    Re: My First Big 12 MBB Power Rankings

    Honestly, I would flip-flop Baylor and OU. Otherwise, I agree.

    We've earned a spot at #11 year-to-date; however, by year-end we could be anywhere from 4-12.

    Re: My First Big 12 MBB Power Rankings

    KU/UT - I'll give UT the top spot by themselves with a win on Saturday. KU needs to play some big boy games.

    (big gap, but KSU closing it)

    KSU
    A&M/TTU/OU/OSU
    BU/MU
    ISU
    NU
    CU

    Records don't tell you everything.

    You missed the point. Read my second sentence. They have quality wins, whereas we don't.
