    They were struggling with ULMonroe. I think OSU runs away with the title this year and fairly comfortably at that.

    Bill Self and Kansas will win it again. There are a couple games every year they look vulnerable in the non-conference but they'll win the league again.

    Travis Ford went to the Scott Drew School of Coaching and will hold that team back.

    Make yourself familiar with Bill Self. Go look him up on Wikipedia or something.

    Early season games are always an indicator of future conference standing.

    State...usually like what you post. Not sure about this one (I'm a bit passive-agressive).

    By that rationale, Iowa is Final Four bound.

    Let us know how comfortable you are with this pick mid February. Right now this is crazy.

    I'd never pick against a team who gets to play 8 on 5 through the conference season.

    Oh I am way early for sure. But watching them play, they are not as seasoned in years past for obvious reasons (Most are rookies). I just wasn't overly impressed with them is all. I will stand by my statement that OSU rolls them this year. Backflip part 2.

    You're forgetting about the "Travis Ford can't coach to save his life" factor.

    I still think you are discounting the referees, State43.

    They were certainly out in full force tonight too. ULMonroe had a guy foul out with over 12 minutes left in the game. An important big defensively from what I gathered.

    Bill Self > Every other coach in the Big 12

    Kansas knew they would win this game. Self probably used it as a way to see how different lineups worked. Kansas will probably win the conference again and be a favorite for NC.
