Seriously? The Big 12 blows this year, it may be the worst power conference in the country this year. The Big 12 has two legit teams that deserve to be in the tourney this year, ISU is the 3rd best team in the conference no question. The rest of the teams are MAC caliber.
As of this point last year, im not sure our big win was much better.
I was comparing based on everything I know about both teams. The OP didn't ask to compare the two at the same point in their respective seasons. This year's team may end up being better, but they have yet to beat a ranked team or knock off a tough team like KSU on the road.
Obviously a very hard question to answer as it forces us to compare last years final product, with the potential of the current team. At this point I'll give the nod to last years team, as we had a player who was pretty much unguardable in late february and March.
Right now, I would say last year's team, but believe this one has more potential to go further. Royce was so key last year, so if he got in foul trouble, we were in trouble. I think we have more options this year.
They're not really better but they have more potential than last year. They could easily end up in the top 2-3 of the conference and get a 6 seed or better. With a favorable bracket spot this team could do some damage in the tourney.
