    Almost the same, except i'd put OSU tied with ISU, maybe even a little above.

    OSU
    KU

    ISU/Baylor/OU
    UT
    WVU/KSU
    TT

    TCU


    That middle group will be a battle, and not much will separate #3 from #8, maybe even #9.

    Everybody else

    ISU is at the top of the conference. Saying KU is above us is laughable. They've lost 3 times already. They can be good, but they're struggling. We, however, are not.

    I was just coming in to say this. Not sure how you can justify KU above ISU right now.

    Yeah, they have looked good against good teams (and poor against poor teams). Had they won against MSU, I think 6 Big 12 teams would be, at this moment, in the tournament.

    KSU is starting to come around and can knock off anyone imo. WVU has played tough against some good competition and Eron Harris is on fire. We better take care of business at home, as getting even 3 road wins will be tough.

    Power Rankings:
    1.) Oklahoma State
    2.) Baylor

    4.) Kansas
    5.) Oklahoma
    6.) Texas
    7.) Kansas State

    There isn't much separating 1-4 and 5-7.

    1-4 are all Top 16 teams. Quite frankly any one of those teams is capable of winning the conference or playing in the Final Four.

    +1. Exactly as I have it, though OU and UT are interchangeable as are TT and TCU

    Strength of schedule is the phrase I think you're looking for. KU's schuedule has been significantly more difficult than other members of the Big 12.

    Never put Baylor ahead of us. They haven't got better then a split with us in the history of the world.

    If you say Iowa State isn't first then I'm not sure what you've been watching. We are 10-0 while playing a decent non-conference schedule. Plus we haven't played our best basketball. I don't see anyone except Kansas coming close to winning in Hilton and even then only with the help of the officials. On the road there are a few that we could lose, but we haven't proven that we even can lose yet. I know expecting to win the Big 12 is to optimistic but what have we seen to prove otherwise.

    This. Kansas has one of the toughest schedules this year, and has lost to top-notch opposition. If you're doubting Kansas, I don't think you've watched them play. They have BIG players, and not in the lanky Hawkeye sense, either. Those guys are scary, and I'm afraid they're going to dominate the Big12, even if they've had a rough season so far.

    Yes, we have seen this before- KU losing a few games while breaking in a bunch of talented new players with a tough schedule. Self lets the rotation shake out and gets them rolling by late January. There is not a more naturally talented team in the Big 12. Ok St has a better backcourt, but KU has the best talent. If KU does not lose early, they will win the conference again.
