    I would absolutely love for OSU to knock the snot out of KU. I would like us to win it all of course, but my second choice is OSU.

    I'm not sure how OSU is the more complete team. They are more experienced and proven for sure, but KU is deeper at every position especially in the frontcourt.

    Yeah, but they are young and inexperienced and may not communicate well and may be injury prone in the B12. Yes, they have athleticism.

    You are going to regret picking against Bill Self. Everyone does.

    Didn't KU share the title with OU one year and OU won the head to head?? Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but how can KU claim that?

    I think they split with Texas one year too, where Texas beat them in the only head to head match up.

    Oh great, it's that time of year when people start repeating, over and over again, "Baylor is Baylor is Baylor."

    I'd love to see KU dethroned, LOVE IT. However, I cannot ever pull for the biggest cheaters in the conference as long as Ford is there. I actually used to kind of like OSU hoops too.

    Are there any tie breakers for the Big 12 regular season title? Or are they just automatically Co-Champs if the records match?

    I think they are automatically co-champs and the head to head winner is the higher seed in the Big 12 tourney. IIRC KSU tied KU for the conference last year despite being swept by KU.

    Are Big 12 games going to be officiated by Big 12 officials this season? If so, my pick is for Kansas.

    Can't stand Travis Ford. Despise Bill Self. Loathe Scott Drew. It's gotta be Iowa State taking home gold this year. Otherwise, the only other school I would be even slightly OK with winning it would be OU. I don't see them finishing higher than 5 though.

    I think Oklahoma State is capable of sweeping KU this season — I could see that happening, but still somehow not win title outright.

    Could still lose one each to Baylor, Iowa State, K-State and Oklahoma, and I could see KU sweeping all but about 2 other series. Another 14-4 shared title, perhaps.
