Default What Big XII team would you most like to see lose?

I say KU. It was way more fun to see them lose early when the Wheeler was the coach. But I will still say KU.

WVU because I hate the 'foul multiple times on every possession because the refs will get tired of blowing their whistle" philosophy.

KU of course. KU could never lose enough games to make me happy.

KU, followed closely by KU. Then KU. If I could be fortunate enough to see their season end in person in my hometown, that would at least give me one highlight from this year's tournament!

Has anyone mentioned KU? Cause if not, the correct answer is KU....always. You can't imagine the "joy" it is to live near these people for 4 months out of the year.

Pukesville. Nothing good for the pukes is good for the Sooners. KU doesn't concern me because they are not going to lose enough for it too matter. If you are talking the tournament it is Texas. I just do not like whorns.

Yep. Living in the Wichita area, it is atrocious. It's always "Wait until Basketball season" 8 months out of the year. Also, I tend to say away from social media for the most part during basketball season.

The only bad thing about KU is I like or at least respect Self. When the weeper was at KU and I could count on a good post game cry after s tournament loss it was a lot better. Speaking of that worthless POS Roy Williams, does he still pull that crying act?

what's funny is ku has gotten the #1 seed 14 times...and only made the FF 2 times...granted they've won 5 NC in those 14 years.

but yes...the "joy" is overwhelming!

Lol they have only won 3 national titles in history. One in the 30 years since the '88 nightmare. Or am I misinterpreting what you mean by"NC?" It's still early lol!

Also, I agree with Denver about Self and Williams. Great coach and as straightforward a guy as there is. Everyone can speculate about whether he cheats, but that's all it is, speculation. But I consider Roy and his "aw shucks" routine to be phony as can be.

This is not a subjective question. The correct answer is KU.

I'd love to see KU lose to Penn. Followed up by Texas losing to Nevada.

.
crazy...I was on one site and it said 5...weird.
Yes, only 3 and 7 FF..(including the 3 nc's) since 1983...with all those #1 seeds in 34 years


*my bad, it said round reached...so they've played in the NC game 5 games, won 3.

OSU, just based on the past 2 days I'm sick of hearing their whining. You're a 2 seed in the NIT, that should be your hint.

I can't stand Kansas, but it's because of their insufferable fans. I respect the hell out of Bill Self, and I think a large part of why they lose earlier than they "should" in the tournament is becuase his teams constantly overachieve. This year is a perfect example. This year's KU team had no business winning the conference or getting a one seed, yet they did both. This happens year after year, and the common denominator is Self. They have a cakewalk to the Elite 8 this year. Auburn is the worst 4 by a mile, and Clemson is the worst 5.

The only answer is KU. They never face adversity because they get every call. The major screw job of Ď88. They pay players. Their smug fans. I hate everything about them. They canít lose enough.

KU, for sure, but I'd place WVU right up there. They expect (and too often receive) special consideration from the officials, and when they don't -- when an officiating crew actually deigns to whistle, say, 25% of the fouls they commit, they whine and moan endlessly. They deserve to have at least four players foul out every game and unless and until that starts to happen on a regular basis, I'll be cheering against them.

I'd also like to see oswho lose in the NIT, just so all those (including too many posters on this board) who feel sorry for them (with no justification whatsoever) will finally turn out the lights on the pity party.

Tough call. I didn't see anyone mention KU. I love seeing them get exposed outside of the friendly confines of Big 12 conference play.

WVU is another good pick for similar reasons. I hate their style of play, and I love that NCAA refs are incentivized to enforce the "freedom of movement" principles.
