1) baylor losing is good. They won't fall out of the top 100 RPI if they lose out. That is still a good road win. Without that win, ISU and Baylor would be switched in most bracketologies.
Baylor struggles because
A) Lost 3 players to the draft (PJ3, Miller, and Acy) any team that loses that many players will be down besides power programs.
B) No wings, 2 guards. Walton and Heslip play the other guard spots besides Jackson. Walton is a defender, that's it and Heslip is a 3-point shooter that's been off all year. 4 points combined against Texas won't get it done.
C) Austin is passive in the paint and has attitude issues. Reportedly threw his glasses at his coach during a game and always complains about calls. He also would rather shoot 3's then work in the paint.
D) Scott Drew is getting exposed a bit. With only a couple reliable scoring options, he struggles at getting everybody going. Got out coached last night by Rick Barnes pretty badly and Hoiberg in both games this year.

He recruits long wimps that hate contact that's why they suck. Acy was perhaps the biggest reason they went as far as they did (Jackson not-withstanding). Only long non-wimp they have had.
Agreed. Acy was their physical presence. It is amazing the size that Baylor has on their squad and how soft they are. It is almost pathetic. Niang is a skilled guy in the post but there is no reason he should be down on the block pushing Austin around. It is almost too sad to be funny.... almost....
To my fellow Cyclones... Be excellent to each other... and PARTY ON DUDES!
