We play the kitties at home in two weeks. Lots to get done in the mean time,

Ironically 15 straight could be interpreted as the next KU Big XII title to be won or the KU winning streak needed to ensure a KU return to the Final Four since there are a possible 16 games left in KU's AY2018-19 campaign. :woohoo:

For now we'll assume we are not getting ahead of ourselves, we are simply considering the former and not the latter (although the latter would certainly be sweet, even if KU did not win at least a share of the Big XII regular season title this season*).

REMAINING SCHEDULES for BIG XII LEADER and all Three 2nd PLACE TEAMS
as of SUNDAY 2019-02-10

All Top 4 teams are color coded and underlined.

KSTATE (8-2) 4 Home / 4 Road
FEB 12 (TUE) AT TEXAS
FEB 16 (SAT) VS IOWA STATE
FEB 18 (MON) AT WEST VIRGINIA
FEB 23 (SAT) VS OKLAHOMA STATE
FEB 25 (MON) AT KANSAS
MAR 2 (SAT) VS BAYLOR
MAR 4 (MON) AT TCU
MAR 9 (SAT) VS OKLAHOMA

With road games at Kansas, Texas, WVU and TCU, there is a good chance they go 1-3 or even 0-4 the rest of the way on the road.

KANSAS (7-4) 3 Home / 4 Road
FEB 11 (MON) AT TCU
FEB 16 (SAT) VS WEST VIRGINIA
FEB 23 (SAT) AT TEXAS TECH
FEB 25 (MON) VS KANSAS STATE
MAR 2 (SAT) AT OKLAHOMA STATE
MAR 5 (TUE) AT OKLAHOMA
MAR 9 (SAT) VS BAYLOR

KANSAS has to hold serve in AFH, which would give KSU at least 1 more loss. But unless KU suddenly finds its road legs -- and someone else can beat KState the rest of the way -- playing at TCU, TT, OSU (bal-chatri!) and even OU does not bode well for our guys.

TEXAS TECH (7-4) 4 Home / 3 Road
FEB 13 (WED) AT OKLAHOMA STATE
FEB 16 (SAT) VS BAYLOR
FEB 23 (SAT) VS KANSAS
FEB 27 (WED) VS OKLAHOMA STATE
MAR 2 (SAT) AT TCU
MAR 4 (MON) VS TEXAS
MAR 9 (SAT) AT IOWA STATE

TT will probably lose 2 more games this year, but with just three road games left they have a leg up on the other top 4 teams who all have four road games left. At OSU should be a TT win, but at TCU and ISU are questionable -- although Saturday ISU showed they are vulnerable at home this year.

IOWA STATE (7-4) 3 Home / 4 Road
FEB 16 (SAT) AT KANSAS STATE
FEB 19 (TUE) VS BAYLOR
FEB 23 (SAT) AT TCU
FEB 25 (MON) VS OKLAHOMA
MAR 2 (SAT) AT TEXAS
MAR 6 (WED) AT WEST VIRGINIA
MAR 9 (SAT) VS TEXAS TECH

Saturday's home loss to TCU was a crusher for the Cyclones. Still having to travel to Fort Worth -- one of four remaining road games for the Cyclones -- for the rematch looks even worse for a team that has, as usual, had it's share of road issues this year. At best I anticipate they will finish 1-3 on the road, giving them at least 7 losses this season and leaving them short of the conference title again this year.



*Even if KU swept the rest of its regular season games, KState could still end up all alone as Big XII regular season champions as long as their only loss the rest of the way is to KU in Lawrence. We really need to take care of our business and hope that one or more of our competitors can find the key to beating KState in this last half of the season.

How it that KSU played 1 less game then KU? Where in the schedule does KSU catch up?

A quick look at HE's fine schedule presentation above would reveal that KSU comes level win KU in games played a week from tonight at WVU.

We've gone from controlling our own destiny to needing a little help. I think we will get some help but it might not be the right help.

14 championships, 13 home losses since 2003
