OSU Hoops: Cowboys Picked T-5th in Big 12 Preseason Poll

The Jayhawks are once again Big 12 favorites.

I think 4th is more reasonable. We have everyone except Cade and Ferron returning. Tech lost their coach and some guys I don’t understand why they’re picked ahead of us. Hope beard crashes and burns at Texass.


Big 12 going to be the best conference once again.

I’m sorry dude.

Doesn’t matter, when we hang that big twelve championship banner it will feel a lot better

compared to the talent of the teams ranked above us I think fourth or fifth place sounds like a reasonable expectation. The Big 12 is expected to be that good. So fourth or fifth in this conference does not indicate a bad or even a mediocre team. With the difficult pre-conference schedule we will see before conference play how good this team is. On paper we have some talented transfers. Hard to believe it is almost time for basketball season.

Let’s face it - in hoops, the Big 12 is one of the (if not THE) toughest conferences in the country. I look at who’s ranked above them, I have no argument with that list. Maybe, maybe they can finish ahead of Tech if they get some lucky breaks. We should also remember that it was only 2 years ago that we were being picked last or next-to-last, so this IS an improvement.

I don’t usually remember where we finished in conference. Crazy to think we finished 5th last year and got a 4 seed in the NCAA tournament. Tough conference last year.

I feel like we belong ahead of WVU and Tech. Baylor has new young talent but they get the benefit of the doubt with winning the natty a year ago. Texas assembled some impressive transfers. Kansas has a great mix of returners and good portal players.

If our players have improved from a year ago, we are in the top 4 for certain. And if Thompson and Cisse realize their 5 star potential, we can be right in the mix at the top.

It’s all up to coaching
