As we know now, Kansas clinched its 11th straight conference title with its win over West Virginia earlier this week.
While it seems obvious every March that Kansas should be the choice to win the Big 12, it doesn't always work out that way. Whether people really think Kansas won't win the league, or whether it's people just wanting to be different or make a bold call.
Regardless, it's always fun to troll a bit, so let's look at some Big 12 predictions from yesteryear:
Starting off with a solid prediction from a K State fan.
The two FOX Sports 1 guys just picked KU to finish "second or third" in the Big 12. Picked Texas to win it.— Kevin Flaherty (@KFlaherty247) December 11, 2014
That's why Fox Sports 1 has to broadcast the Big East.
Jeff Goodman picks Texas to dethrone the Jayhawks. http://t.co/OdUUn78meu— Carrington Harrison (@cdotharrison) November 3, 2014
OK OK it's not fair to pick on someone like Goodman. Aaron Craft!
they're really real. Turner's that good RT @zhulander09: Is Texas for real? Does this team have the ability to win the Big 12?— Seth Davis (@SethDavisHoops) October 27, 2014
More like really real crappy. Not enough green juice I guess.
Like I said over a week ago, Iowa State will not lose again (haven't) and Kansas loses 2 more games (1 tonight) and Cyclones will win Big 12— M® Mille® (@IowaHawkGuy) February 24, 2015
Weird that a Hawkeyes fan would like Iowa State but whatevs bros.
Not saying WVU will win it but could totally see Kansas not winning Big 12.— Caleb Montgomery (@CMonty_116) February 25, 2015
Kansas is not going to win the Big 12 regular season title. 10 consecutive was a good run, but that will come to an end in early March.— Walker Carey (@walkerRcarey) February 24, 2015
It's early March and hmmmm looks like 11 is in the bag. 10 is a nice run too though.
With a healthy Isaiah Taylor, I think Texas is positioned to be the favorite in a loaded Big 12.— Jeff Borzello (@jeffborzello) January 2, 2015
OH NO GOODMAN WHY WOULD YOU CLAIM THAT NOOOOOO
Oklahoma doesn't have a ton of depth, but the addition of Tashawn Thomas makes them a real threat for a Big 12 title. Seriously.— Rob Dauster (@RobDauster) November 16, 2014
Seriously no though.
Immediate threat to not win it.
I know they have enough pieces to blow a giant lead against Iowa State that would have given them a chance to.
Oklahoma's Buddy Hield: "We're gonna win the Big 12. I'm saying it right now, we're gonna win the Big 12."— Jeff Borzello (@jeffborzello) July 11, 2014
One true champion, a billion wrong predictions.
Iowa State now has a good shot at a share of the Big 12 crown and an outside shot at ending Kansas' 10-year title streak.— Jeff Eisenberg (@JeffEisenberg) February 24, 2015
They do not.
All right, Iowa State. It's all on the table. Win out, and the Big 12 title is yours.— Chris Hassel (@hasselESPN) February 24, 2015
Challenge not met.
Texas has to be the favorite to win the Big 12 if you believe its still KU you're just a blind homer this is a... http://t.co/VzRUIXiinF— Chris B TheFutureHC (@Coach_ChrisB) December 23, 2014
I just wanted to make fun the guy who said he'd take Aaron Craft over Andrew Wiggins last year again.
To finish we go live to the rest of the Big 12:
