The farmers haven't made the Big-12 tournament since 2002 and they come into this series with a pretty solid club.  You just know they will be pumped to take KU down and fight their way out of the basement.  Wins this weekend will not come cheap.  The Jayhawsk will also be up as they know that this is a make-or-break weekend for their season.  The bottom line is that KU probably needs to win at least two of the three or give up any hope for post-season play.  The weather is a bit iffy in terms of rain, but I am sure there will be big crowds at all the games.  Get yourself down to the ballpark.
