Tough time for Thomas Robinson, the team rallying around him and supporting him is expected but a nice thing to hear a little bit about.
Jesse Newell's take on the Big 12 before action tipped yesterday.
K-State will probably be on the border of dropping out of the top 25. I still think they'll put something together, I still think this is a team that will be in the hunt, but without question this isn't the season K-State was expecting. Sometimes things just don't work out the way they're supposed to and finding that right mix of players to click is sometimes the biggest test for a coach. At the moment, Frank Martin can't seem to find it.
Two things in this one. Colorado looked like a pretty good team...AT HOME. I'm still skeptical that they'll put it together on the road based on how the season started for them(road losses to Georgia, Harvard, San Fran), but hats off to Tad Boyle(KU Guy) on a big win. As for Mizzou. They're pressure didn't seem to do much until the final minutes and in the half court, they just look lost. Same old Missouri, good...but how good is the question. I thought this team was looking like our biggest challenge and they still might be, but this was interesting.
Game By Game After the Jump
No surprise here, Oklahoma and Capel are about to fade away for the rest of the season and I'm interested to see the Aggies against Missouri in a few games.
This one looked close a couple times, which just goes to show how difficult winning on the road in this conference is. Still Baylor is a much better and more talented team and I don't expect Tech to be much of a challenge for many this year.
Does it feel like we're right where we were last year with Texas? Yet everyone seems to continue to declare their struggles from a year ago have been resolved. I guess we'll see. I'd tend to believe it can't happen twice but I don't know how anyone can say that when they were 14-0 a year ago this time and would hit 17-0 before falling off the map.
