2012-13 Big 12 Basketball Preview
We've entered the top three in the Countdown and lookey there, a familiar name has found itself among the elite of the conference for a second consecutive year. Behold, fine readers of Wide Right & Natty Lite, at #3 Iowa State.
We're entering the top half of the league in the countdown, and the criteria and tone of these next few previews will focus on one, basic question; is this team good enough to win the league? With the obvious inclusion of Kansas, these next five schools have in my opinion, the talent, experience and coaching on hand to be considered a legitimate conference title contender. At #5, Big 12 newcomer, West Virginia.
The countdown is becoming increasingly difficult to project how the conference will shake out this season, but the show must go on. As I've highlighted, spots 2-8 are up for grabs and your guess is as good as mine. At #7, the Oklahoma Sooners.
So we've taken out the trash so to speak, covering what will be the two worst teams in the league in Texas Tech and TCU. Now is where these predictions get interesting. To the shock of many, coming in at #8, the Texas Longhorns.
This is the first installment in WRNL's countdown to the top. Guaranteed to piss people off and cause normally well-mannered folks to lose their cool, just remember, these are predictions and if you really want to, you can bookmark these predictions and point out how wrong I am in March.
