Texas gets in, that's what
We knew it was huge the second it happened.
So...we want Texas to beat Baylor by more than we beat Texas by (score differential among games between the 3 teams is what will end up being the 1st used tiebreaker to eliminate someone assuming all losses come to OU and each other). Then it will leave Texas and us, where we would own the tiebreaker by beating them.
The biggest surprise there is that they give ISU a 63% chance of beating Texas. I think we can compete but I'm not quite as optimistic as their algorithm.
Well hopefully this means Rhule will be out of Waco at the end of the season. The dude was trying to get an NFL job after year one. I would imagine he will get one if he plays in Dallas.
How does Baylor get every tough game at home... ISU, OU, and Texas with a cupcake non conference. I thought they would drop the game @ K-State.
We’d be tied then each with two losses right? And they’d own tie-breaker.
I don’t think any team runs the table against non-OU teams. It will come down to who ends up with only one additional loss OR who can knock off OU.
He signed a contract extension through 2027 this year. Because Baylor is a private school, they don't have to share the buyout but I have to think it's a big buyout if they extended the contract 7 years.
No since we would only have 1 conference loss and they would have 2
Issue I see is we are up with two minutes left, and then let em march down the field against the prevent to score the winning FG, ala Baylor.
That was my preseason prediction, too. But my game-by-game guesses for Big 12 teams haven't been highly accurate so far, overall
The weather plays a factor? I still remember a bad Texas team against a bad Iowa State team on a cold Halloween night and Iowa State shut out Texas.
You have us beating OU then? We already have one loss.
Speak for yourself, my nut cup is firmly entrenched with cheeks clenched for backup.
I suppose the nut cup is warranted, but are you really concerned about being probed by aliens?
Welp, there a thing called a home and road rotation in the Big 12.....
On a serious note, with their easier games on the road, they'll drop at least 1 of those. OU aint losing in Waco. Horns will be favored. Should help Baylor hang with both, but ultimately lose....but Texas looks pretty vulnerable.
In the Big 12 division days ISU always got OU/UT at home one year and on the road the next...and the schedule makers ALWAYS put them on back to back weeks on the schedule for some reason. Im pretty sure every other team split home and road each season with OU/UT. Realignment got us out that set up.
Baylor still has OSU and TCU on the road. I think they drop both of those games. Baylor has had the most convenient big 12 schedule of anyone and they’ve barely scooted by for the most part. They will lose 3-4 big 12 games this year.
TCU is no cake walk and their freshman QB will only get better and better as the season goes along. Baylors game @Okie State this weekend is a big one. Lose that and I think they lose at least 2 of three of @TCU, Texas, Oklahoma to finish Big 12 play at 6-3.
I for some reason was not thinking of that. Just ignore me and carry on lol
