That said, no question he would get Texas back to where Rick Barnes had them in the early-mid 2000s.

I think he would. Texas is a sleeping giant. Tech has surely about peaked what it can do

People have been saying "sleeping giant" about Texas and Missouri for decades now.

OU is better in tradition.
Tech has the better arena.
Tech is investing more in the program.
Tech has better fan support.

Of course these things are fluid. But what makes OU the significantly better job?

Tech spends a lot more money on basketball than we do at Oklahoma. Beard's staff is enormous. The red carpet is rolled out for his every want.

Numerous instances have been discussed on this board where the AD has nickel and dimed Kruger.

Tech has a nice arena for sure but Red Raider fan support is pretty bandwagon, too.

i've seen Spirit or whatever half-empty a bunch in the Pat Knight or following Gillespie or even Tubby years. wouldn't say anything about Tech hoops is a "sure thing".

Tech is also in at least rebuild/remake to down cycle in football by firing Kingsbury and the end of the Leach era (and KK post-era) on the gridiron. good basketball is gonna draw people when football is down.

that happened at OU with Kelvin's guys being pretty good as football scuffled in the 90's.....i saw the same thing at Colorado, some, living in Boulder as CU's football went in the pooper. basketball gained interest with some success.

i remember that....Coors Event Center in the Ricardo Patton years was one of your more underrated sports dollars. you could get a GA ticket, a couple beers, and nachos for 20$. and see some of the better teams in the early Big XII (if you were me....us, OSU, UT, KU, MU sometimes) for low cost. and nachos.

truth is Ricardo's teams were generally pretty decent to above average. much better than he gets credit than with my CU friends.....

They've shown some life the past three games (as I predicted they would at some point). We'd better be primed and ready on the 22nd.

Fortunately, we’ve done what they couldn’t, specifically, winning more than two league games in five-plus weeks. I think they’d probably trade places with us if given the choice.

The poster you quoted will ALWAYS take the negative slant if at all possible. Yeah, they won in Manhattan for their SECOND conference win on the year!!! So I guess they did do what OU couldn’t do...although they are about to be 4 games behind OU in the standings!!

How many conference losses a team has does not diminish a victory. This applies to all teams.

And ku wins again. They always win. Combo of buying very good players and getting whatever help they need from big12 refs at the right time. Same old song and dance every year.

If only they had too many text messages or ate too much pasta. Maybe then the NCAA would punish their cheating ways.

UWV did their usual thing on the offensive boards 20-7, but they couldn't hit shots and turned the ball over 19 times.

Yeah, KU's stats on steals and blocks should be really high.

Little brother upsets Tech in Stillwater. Texas (without Jericho Sims) is down 20 in Ames. It appears that Shaka is serous about defending their NIT title this year.

Baylor doesn't score a point in the final 4 minutes of the 1st half....but still lead WV by 11 at the break.
