    Will you support Kansas(a good team from our conference) in the tourney or hope they lose given this years debacles? I would personally love to see them take an early exit, their fans have been horrendous.

    One of two things.

    One, KU wins the Big 12 tourney but then the curse of no 16 seed ever beating a 1 is over :) or
    Two, ISU crushes them in the semifinal game and I don't worry about Kansas in the tourney.

    You are kidding right? I wouldn't root for them against anyone except maybe the Hoks.

    I'm confident OSU can go far, so as long as we have some good B12 rep (other than us of course) lose baby lose!

    A lot of talk about the big 12 being down this year, at least KU doing well would shut up a few of those people. I would still rather they lose though.

    I hope Kansas suffers a humiliating exit from the NCAA Tournament. They should be used to them by now.... see Bradley, Bucknell, UNI, VCU, Rhode Island, UTEP, etc....

    I would be okay with ISU beating them in the conference tournament and then KU sticking around in the dance long enough for ISU to knock them off again.

    With all of their McDonald's AAs, I always get a kick out of seeing them go early.

    Nope. If they had beat us straight up, I'd root for them as a Big 12 team. Now, they are dead to me.

    I always cheer for all big 12 teams in bowls and tournament play, and KU is no different this year or any other. Plus, doing so gives me a shot at getting lucky, so there is that.

    KU needs to lose early if only to give further evidence that big 12 officiating is how they manage to win the conference.

    If ISU advances to face them in the semis of the Big XII Tournament Hoiberg should definitely make a special invitation to Ali Farokhmanesh to be an honorary captain for the game.

    I strongly held this opinion every year. Except this year. I want them to lose bad because of the "entitlement / arrogant" attitude of their fan base.

    It's good for the B12 and we need teams to have a Deep Dance run, otherwise our conference won't be considered a legit basketball league if KU wins the regular season 9-10 in a row. We need more teams making deeper runs.

    I just don't want it to be KU - I'm beginning to hate their fans as much as Iowa fans.

    They only have 1 McDonalds AA this year (freshmen Ellis) and didn't have any on the team the 2 prior years.
