Big 12 Confidential (Pre-Conference Wrap)

Another non-conference season has come and gone, and with the exception of the Kansas vs. Michigan State game on Saturday, the rest of the conference will play their first conference games of the season this weekend. It’s hard to believe that’s true–the last couple of months have been a relative blur. North Carolina, the one… more »

What we’ve learned so far about the Big 12 Conference (South Division)

The Big 12 Conference is riding the wave of last season’s success, and it has Oklahoma, Baylor, Kansas and Texas among others to thank for bringing it back to the top of the college basketball pecking order.

Big 12 Confidential (Week 8)

Hot Topic: What a week this should be for the Big 12 Conference. It seems just like yesterday we were talking about the conference getting six bids into the tournament, and now with the recent play of a few teams (namely Oklahoma, Baylor and Texas A&M), it could be looking at only five tickets. Let’s… more »

Bubble Watch: 2/26/08

First, the recap: Big Ten: Ohio State. The Big Ten’s weekly entrant in this column is one loss away from dropping out of the bracket. OSU is an abysmal 1-8 against the RPI Top 50. Fortunately, or unfortunately, for them they still have three opportunities to improve that record: @Indiana, H-Purdue, and H-Michigan State in… more »

Big 12 Confidential (Week 7)

Hot Topic: With the Big 12 season winding down, it’s time to once again take another look at where all six major contenders stand in terms of chances of getting into the Big Dance.

Big 12 Confidential (Week 6)

Hot Topic: Ah, the Big 12 Conference; it’s good to see you’re back in rare form again! Just when you think you have the Big 12 all figured out this year, the conference turns around throws a Dice-K gyroball your direction. The “consistent” play from Kansas? Gone. Baylor’s Cinderella run? It’s hanging on like one… more »

Big 12 Confidential (Week 5)

Hot Topic: I was thinking about writing a huge post on the resignation of former Texas Tech coach Bobby Knight and the impact it could have on the team in the coming weeks, but I figured most of us have already gotten their fill of the story from ESPN.com and the rest of the crew… more »

NCAA Tournament Bubble Watch: 2/6/08

First, a review of last week’s Bubble teams: Big Ten – Ohio State Buckeyes. Ugh. Bucks had a chance to solidify their profile last week, but lost at a scrappy Iowa. We’re now starting the all-important “Last 10 games,” and as bad as the Big Ten is this year, Ohio State’s schedule is pretty rough…. more »

Arizona vs Texas A&M

Year one in the post-Billy Gillispie era is going better than expected for the Texas A&M Aggies. With new head coach Mark Turgeon running the show at A&M, the Aggies off are to a 7-0 start for the fourth straight season and have shown the nation that they again plan to make a major push… more »

2007 Preseason NIT preview

Historically the Preseason NIT field has consisted of four ranked teams in the preseason polls that will meet in New York City to attract viewers to the Worldwide Leader. That’s not the case in 2008, but for the first time in recent years, the entire field is competitively deeper and is evenly distributed across the… more »

2007 NCAA Tournament: Second Weekend Recap

The 2007 Final Four is set. Florida, UCLA, Georgetown, and Ohio State combine for the lowest cumulative seed count (6) since 1993, when three #1’s and a #2 made it to the third weekend. It’s a fitting cap for a Tournament in which so many outcomes went to the favorites. If this year’s opening round… more »

2007 Sweet 16 Predictions – South & West

SOUTH No. 1 Ohio State vs. No. 5 Tennessee Of Note: Casual fans probably won’t remember that Tennessee played Ohio State quite closely on January 13, losing 68-66 on (surprise, surprise) a Ron Lewis three-pointer at the end of regulation. That’s the same Buckeye who hit the game-tying three against Xavier over the weekend, for… more »

Reactions to the 2007 NCAA Tournament Bracket

General Comments: Selection Committee Chair Gary Walters has repeated in numerous interviews that this was the hardest field to select and seed that he has encountered in his five years on the Selection Committee.
