OSU-TCU: OSU


BAY-OSU: OSU

Final Standings:

ISU: 8-1 (See you in Dallas)
OU 7-2 (See you in Dallas)
OSU 7-2
KSU 6-3
TEX 6-3
TCU 6-3
WVU 3-6
BAY 2-7
TTU 1-8
KU 0-9

FACT:
In a battle between ISU and OU for the second spot, ISU will need to lose THREE if OU wins out.
In a battle between ISU and TCU for the second sport, ISU will need to lose THREE if TCU wins out.
In a battle between ISU and Tech..... nvm.
Verdict:
It is likely that the second in the championship game will have two losses. Our next game is a HUGE one if we want to get to Dallas.
Root for OU and TCU to beat whoever they play. We can afford TWO losses to win the tiebreaker with both and I really doubt that the second team in will have THREE losses:
Just keep winning.

Let me know where I'm wrong with the predictions.

When was the last time we were 2-0 in conference? I bet it hasn’t happened much.

ISU gets Ok State in a good spot too.
ISU is coming off a bye, after TxTech next week.
OSU has Texas the following week, so potential to look ahead.

I said it before when the schedule was released, it sets up nicely for ISU. Basically 1 tough game in each 3 game block. Should be favored in the other 2 in each block.

I think OSU is the team to beat, and the Big 12s best chance at the playoff.

The Red River game will keep the winner in the running along with ISU, KSU and OSU (suck it non-land grant schools)

And before that I believe it was 1983. This is only the second time in the last 37 years that we have started 2-0 in conference (in 2002 we started 3-0, but... don't want to talk about what happened after that).
Have we ever gone 4-0?

We all need to chill a little bit and take it game by game.

However, being a fan I will indulge..... Given what we know about CMC and with how he was talking after the game about us not playing very well, if we do make it down there, I am real confident they will not be happy just being in that game. They will go there smelling blood in the water, regardless of who they have to beat again.
