    Bracketology

    The Big 12 probably only went 6-1 because they were overseeded. Probably more teams would have lost if they were seeded 5 and had to play a 12 seed. But, I also don't think it's just as simple as watching the tournament play out one time and claiming a conference is overrated. They could start...

    Loyal & True. Cowboy Basketball 20’-21’ Season Ends in a Second Round Exit against Oregon State. Pokes Finish 21-9 Overall. Proud and Immortal #NewEra

    Whew. When Cade had to go to the bench in the first half, there was this overwhelming feeling of like, this game is going just like Liberty wanted, this is exactly what we all feared. And Avery Anderson was like yeah...no.

    Dallas-Ft. Worth watch party

    In Fort Worth, all the football watch parties were at Trinity Irish Pub, and I talked to her, but I haven't seen if she's setting it up. There's usually not a lot of people there watching. Dallas usually has more people, but I think some of the normal locations were switched up this year with...

    Bracketology *Pokes are a 4 seed in The Dance*

    I think Liberty is a solid team and a solid 13 seed, but that's where most bracket predictors had them at 12-13, so it's not quite like Oregon. Oregon was a total sham Either way, on the other topic. I agree, at first I was upset and annoyed, but at this point I'm so excited for Friday I don't...

    Bilas described them as a replica of Virginia

    Bracketology *Pokes are a 4 seed in The Dance*

    That's a 2 sided debate. The other side of it is that would make it the 64 best teams RIGHT NOW. Aka they could be like well Duke looked good this week, so they're in now.

    Bracketology *Pokes are a 4 seed in The Dance*

    The Big 12, except WVU of all teams, didn't seems to get much respect from the committee. OU an 8, Tech a 6, us a 4, and Houston got the 2 seed over UT

    It's all about the NET - which is ridiculous. We ended the BCS...we ended the RPI...guess it should be us who ends the NET as well

    Bracketology *Pokes are a 4 seed in The Dance*

    I don't think they do it an an unfair way, but if they have two teams seeded as 3 seeds, I can see them looking at two 6 seeds and seeing which game they think is more interesting. They must do some of that I would think at the very least to prevent as many first and second round interconference...

    I don't think it's a conspiracy to think the committee and NCAA would try to create interesting matchups for fans and TV

    Cowboy Basketball: UT defeats OSU in Big 12 Championship Game. Pokes are #4 Seed and will play #13 Seed Liberty on FRIDAY

    All the conferences that had a COVID situation treated it exactly the same way. The same way the NCAA tourney will treat it - as a noncontest forfeit. Does it suck for OSU? Yes. But thats the way it is. There have been a lot of things that have taken place in the last year on all sorts of...

    This is some bull...you know what

    I've always kind of thought in these conference tournaments its the 3rd day of consecutive games where teams start to show fatigue in the second half, so I think advantage Texas. But I also think - Not Enough Advantage - I think the Pokes want this one bad and are going to make it happen

    Cowboy Basketball: UT defeats OSU in Big 12 Championship Game. Pokes are #4 Seed and will play #13 Seed Liberty on FRIDAY

    Who really cares? We're kidding ourselves if we say hiring his brother didn't help us, but regardless, so what? Smart move on Boynton's part, not our fault Kentucky didn't hire him

    Cowboy Basketball: UT defeats OSU in Big 12 Championship Game. Pokes are #4 Seed and will play #13 Seed Liberty on FRIDAY

    2 seed with a Houston as a 3, yes please. Heck, I'll take a 3 seed with Houston as a 2 in our bracket over a 2 seed with someone like FSU as a 3

    Cowboy Basketball: UT defeats OSU in Big 12 Championship Game. Pokes are #4 Seed and will play #13 Seed Liberty on FRIDAY

    Where is the evidence that our players are less likely to get Covid by quarantining somewhere else? They are quarantined in KC except for when they're playing games. I don't think going back to Stillwater or Indy would help, I think we just have to get lucky

    NCAA Net Rankings (thru 3/1/21)

    The most annoying thing about the committee is there's so many different metrics and they pick and choose which ones they want to use for which teams. Like if OSU gets a 4 seed, the will say oh but they're NET isn't any good. Then you could point to another team and they'll say they're NET is...
