A little too optimistic, IMO. I'm not sold on a loss @Baylor, but I wouldn't be shocked if we drop a game we should win, either. I think opponents see us as a quality team with some exploitable weaknesses, giving the lesser talented teams an added dose of confidence. On the other hand, this team has improved dramatically in the last month, and if that continues, they could surprise even us!
A lot obviously depends on injuries,and we have to start eliminating the second and third chance baskets, that'll come back to bite us.
On the up side, having Bubu to back up KL could prove to be invaluable as the season progresses. If Bubu can handle the pressure d, it'll Korie some added time to rest. Bubu always seems to step up, and doesn't make a lot of mistakes.
4 in-conference losses would probably get us a very decent seed, (IMO, the conference was a little under-rated at the outset), but 5-6 losses seems more plausible.
I'm going with 21-10 overall. 11-7 Big 12 record. Should get us to the dance.
I think we win a few of the tougher games (KU, KSU, OU, OSU) and we may slip a game or two that makes this board go flippin nuts (UT, WVU, BU). Possibly not all of those but i think we will lose a game or two that we absolutely shouldn't lose on a good night.
