Facing @OSU and @ISU as his next two games he drops a game to a solid OU team at home and is staring 5-4 in the conference right in the face.
All we've really done to win the conference most years is avoid these losses, especially at home.
It seems like every year our best competition (be it Texas, Baylor, KSU, MU etc.) in the conference has at least one or two inexplicable losses in conference. It's not that KU never has them, but they have them with much less frequency than everyone else.
I know just about everyone had KU winning the Big XII a month ago, but this loss by Baylor virtually wraps it up. KU has a 2 game lead and a win against all three second place teams.
We have Bill Self, no one else does. The only comparable coaches in the conference are Huggins and Kruger, so let's see what they do given a few years in the conference. I'm very, very impressed with what Kruger has done at Oklahoma in only 18 months, and it worries me for our potential to continue our dominance. What's been keeping us so dominant is the incredible edge we have had in coaching. Kruger could close that gap significantly enough that if he gets the level of talent that Drew or Barnes has gotten over the years, he'll win conference championships and make deep tournament runs.
The two things that worry me about this season is that two of our three wins against the teams behind us are at home and we still have very losable games in Waco, Norman, Stillwater, and Ames. Should we drop all of those? Certainly not, and I really don't think we'll lose them all, nor do I think anyone else will win out.
