Yes OU played KU in KC (big 8 tournament) when OU was number one and KU was number 2.
So it still sounds like, no, it hasn't happened in the big 12.

We are going to need to be 10 to 15 points better then KU to win this one. KU is always spotted about 10 points at home by the big 12 refs. That's why they lose in the 2nd round in March every year because it's the first time all season KU plays a game the refs don't massively favor them.

I worry about the quick turnaround after such a big game against ISU, and going on the road. Gonna have to bring our A games and play better defense than we did against ISU.

I'm excited for this game because the pressure to win is definitely on Kansas. It's expected that the conference champ wins it's home games. This isn't one we need to win in order to win the conference but they do need to win it. We can let it all hang out and hopefully that'll be enough.

If they can't come up with some post defense in two days they will get their ass kicked.

Dude, he is asking about the Big 12. Not the Big 8.

1990 would be the Big 8

Half the teams from the Big 8 aren't even in the Big 12 anymore, such a different league

We are going to need to get off to a good start. Smart shot selection for the first 4 min.

I view it as the same conference but if you don't then it didn't.

Personally I think Big 12 fans are silly not to recognize our past from the Big 8. The other conferences count everything they did pre expansion.

I get what you are saying, it's just to over half the big 12, it's not the same conference at all.

I think the bigger question is if Wayne Seldon will have a nice fresh pair of colored contacts ready to go for the game. Only losers wear colored contacts, Wayne.

Extremely excited about the game tonight. I am friends with several Jayhawk fans, it would be nice to get the upper hand. Win or lose, thank you coach Kruger for making OU basketball both exciting and relevant again!
