    Good teams lose to bad ones from time to time, you know that right? KU lost to a TCU team one year that was 2-16 in the conference.

    I do predict the NCAA throws KU a bone and declares De Sousa immediately eligible tomorrow.

    If anything you should be mad at Adidas for dropping the ball on the recent talent delivery.

    Nah, it just hasn't gelled together quite right. Maybe if this team gets DeSousa back as rumored they can get a spark but right now they are struggling mightily. So it goes. On to the next game.

    Sure do, conference season is a whirl wind every year. Just 2 weeks ago, 90% of the people here thought Baylor was gonna be the last place team.

    Too bad they had to pay DeSousa in the first place or they wouldn't be having that problem.

    My biggest concern with KU now is they will get bounced from the conference tourney before we get to hang another loss on them. That would be a shame.

    If we go 9-2 the rest of the way (not saying we will, but it's possible), that's 24-7 and we sure as hell will be Top 10. Also: yeah, admitting you've tied for first four times is better, but for at least two of those you weren't the #1 seed in the conference tournament, so admitting that would be betterer.

    If ISU goes 9-2 the rest of their way, who have they beat in those 9 wins that would raise their profile to a Top 10 team? They have no games remaining against Kansas. You have 1 game left against #16 Texas Tech and a game left against almost ranked Kansas State. So dropping two games means you either lost to the only two decent teams left on your schedule or you lost to at least one, possibly two mediocre to bad teams. Neither of those scenarios gets ISU to Top 10.

    ISU would have to run the table to get into the Top 10 at this point. Either that or you need multiple top 10 teams to drop a bunch of stinkers.

    Look at the league. It's not very good this year. It's not spin, it's reality. Texas Tech is a good defense but cannot score. Kansas State is pretty good but struggles to score. ISU can score but is erratic in their efforts on the defensive end and prone to hero ball and dumb shot selections. Kansas isn't gelling into what they could be. Baylor is still coached by Scott Drew.

    If you printed out the latest bracket projections from ESPN, would you pick a single Big 12 team to advance beyond the Sweet Sixteen without it being a homer pick? No. The Big 12 is a big pile of decent but flawed teams this team.

    We need an eye roll emoji. A Jayhawk fan doesn't see a FF or NC in his team's future, so that must mean the league is not very good. Give us a break.

    The Big 12 isn't much different than it has been the last few years when it was the best conference in the land. The biggest difference is Kansas is down two of the best players money can buy.

    You should have added a "right now" in front of the big pile of decent by flawed teams. Tech, ISU, KSU, even KU are more than capable of gelling and becoming a Top 10 team.

    Still half a season in conference to go...

    It's not very good but is still the #1 RPI conference and is either 1st or 2nd in alot of other rankings? Makes sense.
