I think Bill Self would agree with you. The Cyclones beat his team by 17.

Didn’t see game today, but that was the worst Self KU team I had seen the other night. I am still hoping what I saw is who they are. He will get them playing better, but I still see an early exit in March.

They've been playing well a good part of the season....and mostly without Wigginton. It's looking more like the Big 12 is wide open.....but we all know the title runs through Lawrence.

TCU, Tech and OU will also have something to say about it before it's all over.

I watched the whole game and the cyclone's backcourt was better than KU's and actually hit jumpers on their home floor. They didnt miss a beat with Wiggington out as they can't drag that freshman haliburton off the court. he's got arms long than Bieniemy's. fun group to watch.

yes. I watched a bit of the game too, and the Haliburton is the real deal. He made this no look pass early in the game that was just plain unreal. I could not believe my ears when they were saying he was only a freshman.

Also, for KU has been abysmal from 3 these past two games. 30% from three today and 19% against us.

Anyone on here want to make a friendly wager on who wins the league? I'll take KU any day of the week. I'll be thrilled if I'm wrong, but this is approximately the 15th straight year that after an early January loss, people overreact and proclaim KU isn't the best team in the league. They lost a game on the road, without their second best player, against a good team in a tough environment. I can almost guarantee ISU will lose some road games against teams they have no business losing to. Happens every year to the team who is annointed as the team to beat KU.

They won a home game and we’ve played 2 confermce games. GMAFB.

KU will win the big12 again. They’re the favorites until someone takes it from them.

They will struggle on the road with that backcourt, but should still win the league.

Of course they will. They're the best team. And this won't be Kansas' last loss.

Do you still stand by that overmatched team statement you made during the KU game? I said this was a pedestrian KU team and we played our C game against them.

Yep. We have seen this before. This won't be the first Bill Self team that takes until mid-to-late January to fine-tune their identity and then turn it on. We'll see if it takes a little longer this year due to the youth and inexperience in the backcourt. I would like another shot at them sooner rather then later, but we don't get them again until the end of the year.

Yes, I fully expect KU to win the league and will gladly put a bet on it, and next year too, until proven otherwise

Also, I have to admit I was wrong on ISU. I was skeptical, but they are good.

Welp, KU’s odds just took a major hit...

BREAKING: Kansas big man Udoka Azubuike will miss the remainder of the 2018-19 season due to a torn ligament in his right hand, per release.

Definitely a huge development but Self is a master of figuring out how to win the league. I hate KU but hate seeing this happen to any player, especially because he missed most his freshman year with the same injury. So we'll be the only Big 12 team to face him all season.

League is officially up for grabs with Dok out for the year. We need to do our part and get them in Norman.

KU still has to be given the benefit of the doubt given they win it every damn year, but they are going to need some luck to pull this one off.

Whoever wins it...will have 3 to 5 losses...and probably wont win B12 tourney either...

I can just see it coming down to a team ku needs to have lose in order for them to claim title on last fricking day of season...and it happens.

All bad things must also come to an end, sooner or later. Think about it.
