This is a huge game for OSU and TCU... TCU has a chance to start 3-0 with an easy early schedule, and OSU is trying to avoid 0-3.

Yep. They’re up 13 at the half on Kansas, in Lawrence. Baylor’s defense is not bad either. KU with only 24 points in the first half.

Baylor has just four second-half points, eight minutes in.

Just got back from a bar and grill full of KU fans. I really enjoyed my lunch. It was worth a drive in the snow.

Feeling pretty nice about the 80-1 Baylor to win the championship future I'm sitting on right now. Gotta give the shoutout to Bigabd on that one. I hit Nova at 35-1 and UVA at 14-1 the past two years. I'll probably hedge Baylor during the tournament, but they have the best guards which is the only thing that matters in the NCAA tournament. Feeling less good about my Pokes 200-1 ticket lol.

A rare sight in the Phogg—KU fans headed for the exits early.

Baylor wins the game 67-55.

Baylor looking tough...no doubt. But let's see how they react as the season goes along when they are the lead dog. They now have a target on their back.

OSU simply can't score....I'm trying to watch this game, but my eyes are bleeding.

You can never feel too confident with the one and done nature of the NCAA tournament, but if you bet on the teams with the best guards you're going to do well for yourself. It's the thing that matters. Which, not coincidentally, is why its frustrating that Lon loads his roster up with project big men instead of recruiting high school guards.

TCU looking good to move to 3-0 in the league... But they have played a a crazy easy schedule and won the first two games by a combined 4 points.

I've seen 8th grade girls basketball that was better played than this TCU/OSU game, and I'm not joking.

Winning close games usually somewhat evens itself out over the course of the season. But occasionally, you'll see a team with an "8-1 record in games decided by 4 points or less". What that tells me is that team needed some breaks and their record is likely inflated. Kenpom is very good at catching these nuances for teams and not having them ranked as high as you would think.....based on their record.

TCU has a 16 point lead over OSU in one of the most aesthetically unpleasing games you will ever see. This lead is like having a 40 point lead over a normal team. It makes our game against UCF look like the 1987 OU vs. UNLV game.

I agree... TCU is definitely on "fools gold" or "paper tiger" watch. Now, I made a post about them earlier in the year, and they actually have a good amount of talent. Several 4 star players, a really nice center, a couple of solid grad transfers, etc. But, their games indicate they are skimming by.

I thought the OSU/TCU game was bad but this UVA/Syracuse game is worse. Tied at 35 with 6:30 to play. Unbelievably horrid offenses.

It's a GAME. The purpose of which is to entertain and have fun. It's hard to be entertained when you're too busy complaining and griping. You need to relax.

it's also hard to "have fun" when your team is getting their butts kicked because of a seemingly lack of hustle/mental mistakes....but I guess to each their own.
