It really doesn't seem like we're the worst team in the big 12 but we've lost to the 9,10 and 11 teams (2 out of 3 at home) so its tough to argue.
I would say it's very clear at this point who the worst in the B12 is.
We had a very easy OOC schedule that raised expectations, which also built our players confidence. Also, for some reason, it took teams a long time to figure out that if you defend the 3, we are cooked.
I still think that Hoiberg has done a pretty good job with the hand that he was dealt. Next year, he will have much more depth and athleticism to coach, so we should know where we stand by this point next year.
Missouri is the only loopsided confrence game and one could attiputed part of that to screwed up traveling they had to do. The rest are close games. Very disapointing games to lose, but fun to watch. With the sort rooster, injuries and sickness it is a wonder really we can stick with everyone. We may finish last in confrence, but we are definately not the team that the BIG 12 coaches had expected to get last. We are capable of beating just about anyone. Except maybe Texas, the way I've seen them play lately.
