Thursday Tourney Chat

  • Anyone watching the games today?

  • Glad for Jerod

  • @Kip_McSmithers Great win for UAB and HC Haase, but looks bad for the tough psuedo Big 12.

  • I think I just lost one of my final four. I can’t check at work. It’s ok though. I usually like seeing the upsets.

  • @brooksmd yes hate it for the Big12. I dislike iSu and their fan base but still want the 12 to represent better.

  • @brooksmd Yeah for Haase. ISU not so cocky today!!!

  • Just turned it on. Figures. I thought the ISU Cyclowns had choked enough the past few years that they might actually make a run this year. NOPE. They need to stop winning the big 12 tournament.

  • If Baylor doesn’t get their act together they could go home today also.

  • @Gunman way to go Floor Burns!!! Maybe he should be in our often talked about replacement!

  • We better have our act together too!

  • @DanR According to the announcers earlier, ISU was the Big 12 champs. They ignored it was a tournament.

  • Dukes candy land road to the final four just got easier

  • @Crimsonorblue22 Could be.

  • Happy for Haase, but sad that Big12 takes another beating in the tournament. Have to do better to justifybthe best conference talk. Wish ND was the #3 that went down.

  • @FarSideHawk can’t root against our own! Lots of espn guys picked ISU to go far!! Go Baylor!! So sad ISU, NOT

  • This is why I didn’t want us to be a 3. Far too many 14s have won.

  • @brooksmd They call that tournament the “Big 12 Championship” which is pretty stupid considering the big 12 also promotes the One True Champion. My misery nephew was wearing 2012 Mizzou big 12 champions sweatshirt the year they won the tournament (KU won the conference by 2 full games) and I’m sure ISU fans were all wearing theirs today when they watched the clones choke again. 2015MBB_ChampBanner.png

  • @DanR

    I find that a bit stupid as well. Then every conference could claim one true champion…

  • Georgia St. is making Big12 folk a little nervous right now.

  • @wissoxfan83

    Just goes to show it’s all about the match ups.

  • Alright you sunnsabitches, I’m supposed to be getting some work done, and I can’t.

  • @jaybate-1.0 You’re too old to work you old fart.

  • @brooksmd


  • In about 1996 it started to snow on the Wednesday night before the tourney and didn’t stop until the Friday morning of the tourney.

    Those were the two best snowdays I’ve had in my 22 years of teaching!

  • @wissoxfan83 Speaking to teaching, ain’t you supposed to be in the classroom doing that.

  • Looks like Baylor finally pulled their head out and will be moving on unless Ga St goes on a tear.

  • Is this Rick’s last game?

  • Uh, the ISU loss doesn’t help that Big 12 tourney resume.

  • @Kip_McSmithers

    Wouldn’t surprise me. The winds of change seem to be blowing. The state of Texas is becoming a hot recruiting bed for basketball. The days of we just care about football maybe coming to end, as well as Barnes tenure as HC of the Texas Basketball team.

  • Faylor is making it interesting. Will piss poor FT% do them in?

    Come on Big12! Pull your heads out.

    Will these close calls to our fellow conference boys wake up the Hawks???

  • UT went on a run to end the half only down 2. Down by as many as 11. I picked Butler to win.

  • Press has Baylor unnerved

  • @Kip_McSmithers They beat it at WV???

  • @RockChalkinTexas won all three games

  • Ga St, I don’t want it, here you do something with it. .

  • @brooksmd amazing shot. Too bad it’s another big12 victim

  • Unbelievable.

  • Love the Madness.

  • Really bad afternoon for the big12. Both number 3s have crapped out.

  • Too bad for the Big 12 right now. Baylor players just smiled after that 3 went in walking off the court. WOW!

  • @brooksmd

    Teaching? oh, that’s what all these kids are doing in this room.

  • Big 12 0-2 so far. TX could make it 0-3.

    Takes the shine off of XI straight to be honest.

  • 14s over 3s is the new 12s over 5s

  • But the way the tourney works, if we can get one team to the Final Four, our conference is vindicated. Who has the best chance? OU?

  • Joe Lunardi tweet: Big 12 can’t lose every game can it?

  • @brooksmd

    Answer: No.

    Reason: Because thankfully we don’t have a team in every game. Otherwise my answer would be yes!!

  • @HighEliteMajor Wouldn’t it be sweet if WVU busted Kensucky in the chops?

  • @brooksmd – As long as UK went down. Heck, I’d root for MU against UK right now. In theory, I mean, if MU was in the tournament.

  • @HighEliteMajor

    MU is playing in the NIT NIT

    NIT NIT - Not Invited To…NIT

  • Texas down 8 with 9 minutes left…
