Default Next 4 games...

...are going to be huge for the conference race. Here's the way I think it will play out. My projection in parentheses:

OU plays
TCU
@KSU
@OSU
KU

KU plays
KSU
@WVU
Baylor
@OU

WVU plays
@TTU
Kansas
Texas
@TCU

Texas Tech plays
West Virginia
@Texas
@Iowa State
Oklahoma State

I get the feeling there is going to be a huge log jam at 6-2 after 8 games.

The conference is brutal this year. The next four are pretty much always going to look like that. Trips to Stillwater and Ames are the easy road games and those are not easy games.

I still will not bet against KU. OU has the worst luck against them.

Yes, I believe we have series lead on every Big 12 team, past and present, except the squawks and our record against them is bad.

Getting through this stretch 4-0 would be terrific, because it would require winning two home games against ranked teams, winning in a place (Manhattan) where we have struggled the past few years, and winning a road game against a rival who is having a better season that expected. 3-1 would be very solid, but I hope you guys with the 4-0 projections end up being right! TCU worries me, they are a good team who will be desperate tomorrow.

The next 4 are all tough games. Pukes in Stoolwater is never easy. TCU is tough and will be revenge game for the froggies. Nothing needs to be said when playing Kansas. They are Kansas. KSU could easily be our easiest game but Bruce Webber has kind of had Lon's number since he got to KSU. He is 7-3 against Lon and Lon has not beaten Bruce (0-5) in Manhattan.

Hopefully TCU is a bit tired and sloppy.. The minutes a few of their players played the other night were insane!

I will be in Manhattan cheering for the good guys against KSU. I will do my part trying to yell "miss" during KSU free throws.

OU 3-1
KU 2-2
WV 3-1
Tech 3-1

I really think OU, WV, and Tech begin to separate themselves over the next two weeks.....with KU right on their heels.

Alright, after much thought, Ill say we actually will go 4-0. I think were gonna stumble on the road, but not against those two teams. OSU & KSU are tough at their arenas, but I think were gonna escape with wins at both.

OU: 4-0
WVU: 3-1 (@ Tech or @ TCU)
TTU: 2-2 (both away games)
KU: 2-2 (@OU & @WVU)
