70-59, but it sure wasn’t pretty towards the end.

Any double digit B12 win on the road by this Texas team is surprising!

Kansas State is truly putrid. 

I turned on the game when it was ~50-30 and 15-ish minutes left, and yet this game should be in single digits at this point, but Kansas State can’t hit layups, free throws, or open shots. 

We seem to be playing “better”, but K-State is fucking AWFUL!! If Shaka saves his job because of this, I’m going to be furious!

This is about maintaining some dignity before the guillotine drops.

Well, as much as I think this Shaka-coached team can fuck up a cup of coffee, we look good enough to beat 13-14 OSU at home to close out the regular season.  Depending on how a couple of teams shake out immediately ahead/behind us, that's the 6 or 7 seed in Big XII Tourney.  A 7 pairs us with KSU who we'd beat again and then lose to KAN/BAY as the 2-seed, a 6 pairs us with WVU or TTU who beats us.  Either way, we're gonna remain above .500 for this season.  It's either 18-15 or 17-15.  And that's the NIT, probably good enough to host the first game or two.  So the Erwin Center may be done with Shaka, but Shaka ain't done with the Erwin Center.  

Onward...through the Fog

It’s plausible, though not likely, we finish 3-1 and have the 4 seed for the tourney. 

Like the positive vibe...  the most likely best result for the last 4 games of the Horns is 1-3

No question. But WVU is schizo and OU is not really that good. Both beatable.

Interesting that West Va lost in Fort Worth today 67-60 in OT.   Monday game in Austin, guess they're staying at a hotel in Texas this weekend.  

That 97-59 beatdown in Morgantown for Horns is still hard to believe...

While not hard to believe (WVU blowout), I doubt it repeats itself. I don’t like Shaka and want him gone, but he his teams have a tendency to hang with anyone.  And WVU is an awful road team. Since Sims’ departure, he’s shored you interior D (minus Baker who’s terrible at it). If Coleman, AJ and Ramey can continue to play at a decent level, 2-2 or even 3-1 can be done. Smart money says 1-3 or 2-2.

Our conference wins and their kenpom rankings:

Okie State- 63

Iowa State- 81

TCU x2- 87

K State x2- 101

we are not about to go 3-1 to end this season. 3-1 would be 10x as surprising as 0-4. we are such a poor offensive team, and were about to play two of the best defenses in America back to back (not to minion that OU and OSU are good defensive teams themselves). unless we go absolutely unconscious from deep, we're losing 3 of the next 4.

I think two wins from now until our exit from the conference tourney (not saying we can’t pick up a win there) is absolutely the most realistic.  That’s NIT worthy.  And that’s probably good enough to even host the first game in Austin.  
 

Last year, we knew we were NIT for sure.  It was just a question of a 1 or 2 seed.  This year, it’s pins and needles to see if it’s CBI or NIT; and if so one more game in the Erwin center?  That’s what $5mm/year gets you nowadays at Texas.

I am thinking win 1 and lose 3, then lose opener of conference tourney.  That should put us out of NIT, down the level of CBI, where we get the uncomfortable position, question do w pay 50,000 to extend our season, lose money on more home games, and delay our coaching search?

Texas is currently 16-11, and 6-8 (B12).  Unless Texas loses the next 5 games, the NIT will offer the Horns an invite...

And a young Tech team is due for a let down game soon.

Not on the road. OU will be tough on the road too. I’ll start paying more attention to this if we get past WVU tomorrow. Which we can.

Like your optimism...  

Problem is West Virginia will have been stewing in a hotel in Texas for 2 days after that OT loss in Fort Worth.  With the game on ESPN Monday Night National TV, Texas depth problems, and the Horns proclivity to commit a high number of turnovers under pressure, means that a loss for Longhorns against the Mountaineers is highly likely. 

My prediction is that West Virginia will win in ATX Monday night by at least 15pts.

Maybe. I fear we’ll have to stay hot from deep. Our D is salty again now that we have a few games under our belt without Sims. I believe the Big 12 has a lot of highly ranked team Ds because this conference just isn’t that good, particularly offensively. I don’t even think we are really top heavy. Nothing KU or BU does overwhelms. Both are good but pedestrian teams. Playing Tech, WVU, OU, Texas or even each other won’t really help them in late March.

Well looks like I was WRONG!!

WVU doesn't travel well. Huggy Bear can't get the calls on the road that he gets at home.

And our 'Horns definitely seem a bit more focused of late. So much wasted potential. But how dare we be so negative about the defending NIT champs!

Someone needs to start today’s game thread.  I would but we’ve lost every time I start the thread.

You might be too conservative. 4-0 is possible. 3-1 likely.
