Default Big-12 Preseason Team

Today the coaches named their choices for preseason honors.

We only had one player all the way through the honorable mention slots.

That puts us - in the league coaches minds - as finishing near the bottom of the league. I bet they are wrong.

Here is the link:

Should give Ana and maybe a freshman or two a little extra motivation!

Probably about right with a legitimate shot at finishing 3rd. I don't see us finishing below 5th but stranger things have happened.

One of the most perplexing statements in the articles about the preseason team was the revelation that OU has been under-rated in the preseason poll between 65 and 70 percent of the time over the past 20 years.

What has caused that?

It goes right along with the coaches leaving Llanusa off even honorable mention in the preseason all big-12 list. For heavens sake, she made honorable mention in the actual post season list last year - and many of the members of that list graduated. It is undeniable that a lot of bias is going on with some of the coaches. There is no other reasonable explanation. Now, why is that happening?

I think we will finish 4th. I know TCU has recruited well and has had some success, but we may surprise some people.

You may be right. Tied for 4th is the worst we have finished in at least the past 5 years.

Based on the track record of the coaches pre-season rankings we are very likely to finish higher thn 5th.

We will see.
