I suppose you agree that the B12 just wasn't all that this year ...

    Look for Michigan to beat TxT taking the B12 out completely. I was surprised that ISU didn't get by the first weekend but consistency has been an issue, hasn't it. Ku lost to the FBI and injuries. K-State without Dean Wade was an average team. OU and BU were not tournament worthy. Thankfully, TCU and Texas went to the NIT. Maybe one of them will win that. At least the streak is dead.

    Not tournament worthy? They won their first games.

    Yeah, so? There were others not tournament worthy as well. This was a very weak field going in.

    I have TT beating Michigan in my pools as I believe their defense can be a bad matchup for UM. BUT, that being said Michigan is really effing good right now.

    At least the big 10 has something to hang its hat on now that football is dead in that conference.

    No. They had the resumes and deserved to be in. The field being weak doesn't mean they didn't deserve to be in.

    I have Texas Tech losing to Duke in the national semifinal.

    That defense is legitimate.

    TF are you smoking? Tech has a great shot against Michigan. That game will bean absolute slug fest but Tech can match up with them physically and I can see them really frustrating Michigan.

    And they have a player that can carry the team. Culver will be the best player on the floor against Michigan and if he has a good game, I think they will win.

    Nope, the opposite. TxT's skinny big isn't going to match the strength of Michigan inside.

    I basically thought that top to bottom the Big 12 was pretty solid but it just didn't have the really good team(s), like a KU most years, that really seemed like a final 4 team. I'll be rooting hard for TTU to carry the banner for the Big 12 and I think Beard seems like a good guy.

    The tournament is a crapshoot and making brand new conclusions based on just a few games when we have the entire seasons data still out there is a problemstic way to go about things.

    The big 12 still should have had 7 in as TCU deserved to be in. 70% of the conference with a tourney-worthy resume isn't bad, it's stellar. We have known all year though that the conference's strength was in depth, not at the top.

    They're going to have the best player on the court until they hit Zion.

    Michigan and Zags/FSU will be tough, but nobody is easy at this point.

    The Big 12 had a lot of really good teams, but not many great teams. Texas Tech is still going to be a tough out, so they're living up to what I expected. KSU could have been in the conversation still without losing Wade. ISU had the potential to make noise, but also the potential to get knocked out early as they did. KU and Baylor did about as expected.

    Silly. They were most definitely tourney worthy. All of the last 15 or so at large teams have some blemishes. That is every year.

    Agreed. The Big 12 was solid but only Texas Tech was elite and that only happened after they got their offense rolling halfway through Big 12 play.
